About Siberians! TM
clean. They're covered in spit! :)
The Siberian is a naturally formed breed of cat from Russia. The Siberian has been around for approx. 1,000 years. It is said that they first appeared in Siberia and the Urals. Siberians have been in the United States since 1990. Elizabeth Terrell brought the first Siberians to the U.S. The Starpoint cattery was born, with Kaliostro Vasenjkovich ( a male) and two females: Ofhelia Romanova (female) and Nania Romanova (female).
They speak a language made up of many different sounds that go far beyond a meow. They have personality galore and can be trained. This is because they are very intelligent and people oriented. They will want to sleep in your bed, above your pillow and follow you around the house like a puppy. A Siberian is very strong yet, they are excellent with children. They like to climb and are very agile. They remain playful throughout their lives. They like to play fetch. You may find that your Siberian "eats your homework." They love paper- paper balls. Siberians are very affectionate. They will rub their face on yours and at times will even groom you!
The female Siberian can reach the weight of 15 lbs. A male can get as heavy as 20 lbs. They grow slowly over a five year period, at which time they will reach their full size and weight. In spring they will lose a long winter coat and put on a shorter coat for summer. In the fall they will lose the summer coat and put on a long coat for winter. The fur is actually what is called a triple coat. This means there are three layers of fur. You will find fur on the bottom of the feet also. This perhaps protects their feet in wild.
A rainbow of colors are available.
hypoallergenic for most people because they have less of a protein in
their saliva that most people are allergic too (FEL
Late trigger anti-body sufferers may find that the Siberian is not a
hypo-allergenic cat for them. No one can guarantee that you will not
react to a Siberian. It is an individual thing. You
should be tested
for reactions first before attempting to take a Siberian home.
There are many myths about females having less FEL-D 1 or a certain color having lower dander levels. This is a myth. The dander levels in each Siberian are different and gentic. A good Siberian breeder tries to produce kittens with low dander levels.
