Personality of a Siberian Cat

The Siberian Cat is a curious, adventurous and social cat breed that should have the opportunity to be outdoors. It needs a lot of activation and loves to play, jump, climb and hunt. Regardless of the weather, a Siberian Cat often wants to go outside and move around. It knows what it wants, is very intelligent and can therefore sometimes require a bit of training. A Siberian Cat also attaches itself completely to "its" human. It is happy to accompany you in everything you do and appreciates when you interact and cuddle with it.

Looks and fur care of a Siberian Cat

The Siberian Cat is strong, muscular and can become relatively heavy. However, it grows slowly and is usually fully grown only at the age of 3-5. The fur of a Siberian Cat is thick, dense and water-repellent, which means that it resists cold and wet well. It usually doesn't tangle that much, but it can still happen due to its length. Therefore, brush the fur a number of times a week to keep it nice and also to reduce the amount of loose hair. The Siberian Cat is popular among allergy sufferers, which is because it produces less of the protein that causes allergies and thus has no direct connection to the fur.
