Siberian cats Breed Profile
Coat Type, Color & Grooming:
Siberians have a short, dense undercoat and a moderately long outercoat enhanced by a neck ruff. They exhibit many coat colors and patterns; brown tabbies are the most popular. Twice-weekly combing should keep the Siberian's coat free from tangles.
Siberians are large cats that give the appearance of strength and power. A rounded body shape differentiates the breed from the boxier Norwegian Forest Cat and the Maine Coon. The yellow-green eyes are large, round, and wide-set, the ears large and wide with rounded tips.
These gentle, friendly, loyal cats from northern Russia are good with kids and adjust well to other pets. They love to climb, so provide ample opportunity for them to explore high places.
