About the breed

Siberian cat characteristics

The Siberian cat is a breed that developed in Russia and is widely known for its beauty. The Neva masquerade cat, a variation of the Siberian breed, is distinguished by its color and elegant appearance, with bright blue eyes.

The Neva masquerade cat is a magnificent breed that garners increasing attention and genuine interest. These cats have a good health and a long lifespan. They are relatively large, with males weighing up to 8kg, while females are smaller and more agile.

Siberian cats are slow to mature, taking up to 5 years to fully develop. They have a well-developed backbone and powerful muscles, making them excellent jumpers and nimble hunters when allowed to roam freely. Their fur is beautiful, thick, and water-repellent, shedding only once a year, which makes it easy to maintain cleanliness in the house. They enjoy grooming and respond well to being combed.

Neva masquerade cats and traditional Siberian cats can adapt to different climates, even in warm areas, by shedding their extra fur and sporting a lighter coat. Despite their tough appearance, these cats have a calm and balanced character. They are fearless protectors of their territory, loyal friends to their owners, and patient playmates to children. However, Neva cats may be wary of strangers.

Siberian cats are friendly and communicate well with people. They have dignity and are never obsessive, but they love to "talk" to their owners and are attentive listeners. They have a strong maternal instinct and take care of their kittens for an extended period. Male cats are also excellent fathers and can help care for the kittens. Kittens also care for each other, licking their relatives, sleeping and playing together, which makes Siberians wonderful pets.

These cats get along well with any size dog and rarely exhibit bad behavior, as good manners are fixed at the genetic level. Owners of Siberian and Neva Masquerade cats enjoy their company, as they remain active, interested in life, and emotionally healthy in the presence of other cats.

When determining conformity to breed standards, size is not the primary factor.

The head of a Siberian cat has a trapezoidal shape with rounded contours, and the forehead is slightly convex. The muzzle is broad and rounded, and the nose is straight and broad. The chin is rounded and matches the nose. The eyes are big and oval, with no association between eye color and coat color. The ears are medium-sized and wide apart, with the base being quite wide and the tips rounded. The neck is thick, strong, and muscular.

The body is of medium length, strong, and muscular, with a barrel-shaped firm belly. The legs are of medium length, with the hind legs being slightly longer than the forepaws. The paws are large and rounded, with pubescence between the pads.

The tail is broad at the base, with a thick stem and a blunt tip, densely and evenly pubescent.

The coat of a Siberian cat is semi-long and structured, with a rather hard, straight cover hair and a thick undercoat. Adult cats have a tightly fitting undercoat that thickens during winter. The hair may thicken to curls on the belly and "britches," but the waviness is not a defining characteristic of the breed. The breed comes in all traditional colors (solid and patterned) as well as point colors, with or without white. Invalid colors include chocolate, lilac, cinnamon, fawn, and the color called "Burma." Saturated color and clear pattern for traditional tabby colors are desirable.

Bringing your Siberian kitten home

  • Inspect your home for any potential hazards such as wires, plastic bags, dustbins, toilets, poisons, and even certain house plants/flowers.

 

  • It's best to keep the environment relatively quiet until your kitten adjusts to its new surroundings. Avoid over-handling your kitten, and keep it in a small area until it locates its food and water supply.

  • Be mindful not to place the food and water bowls next to each other, as some breeds, like Siberians, enjoy playing with water.

  • To maintain cleanliness, check the litter tray twice a day and remove any solids promptly. If you want to relocate the tray, introduce a second one and remove the original only when the kitten uses the new tray.

  • When introducing your kitten to other cats, do so carefully, and be patient if older cats are slow to accept the new arrival.

  • Cats like to look out of windows, so ensure they are closed or fitted with guards.

  • To exercise their claws, provide scratch posts and climbing frames. If they attempt to climb curtains or scratch furniture, discourage this behaviour with a loud noise and remove them firmly but fairly.

​​

Feeding:

  • Ensure that fresh water is always available for your cat.

  • Do not give your cat cow's milk as it is not good for them and can cause digestive issues.

  • Be cautious with fresh foods in hot weather.

  • An electric water fountain may encourage cats to drink, but keep in mind that Siberian cats love to play in water.

  • After the kitten is neutered/spayed, monitor their weight. Siberians take up to 5 years to fully mature and are naturally large cats. Do not let an uninformed vet tell you that your cat is getting fat, as they tend to gain weight in winter due to their breed. If they are allowed to graze, they should not overeat.

​​

Grooming:

  • Groom your cat at least once a week. Starting this habit as a kitten makes it easier in the long run.

  • Pay attention to the awkward area between the front and back legs when grooming. A slicker brush and comb with wide teeth are necessary tools.

  • Cats usually shed their coat in the spring, so it's best to groom them more frequently during this time.

  • If your cat/kitten has an accident in its fur, dust the area with talcum powder, let it dry, and then brush it away with a slicker brush or comb.

  • Nail clipping is an option if your cat is scratching excessively. However, be careful not to cut too low and damage the quick, which can be very painful.
