Breeding of Siberians Cats :

 

The Siberian, including the Neva Masquerade, has been formally bred in Russia since 1987  and the first standards of race has been approved in 1989 . And in 1992 Siberian cat breed is recognized by WCF , registers their standards  and in the same year the first Siberian cat participates in the international exhibition. Since that moment their popularity grows every year. At cat shows all over the world, the Siberian is drawing a lot of attention.

 

The tipe : 

 

The Siberian is a medium to large cat that can take anything up to 5 years to reach full maturity. It's substantial bone structure, broad chest and big paws give a general appearance of substance and strength – definitely a cat with 'heft'.

 

The Siberian is a strong and powerfully built cat, with strong hindquarters and large, well rounded paws and an equally impressive large full tail. They have barrelled chests and medium/large sized ears, large eyes, broad foreheads, and stockier builds than other cats.Their large round eyes give an overall sweet expression to their face. Siberians have a slight arch to their back, due to the fact that their hind legs are a bit longer than the front legs. This shape contributes to their incredible agility and athleticism. The Siberian Cat has variety of colours and patterns:  brown, black, red and white. Patterns are tortie, tabby , solid ! Also some of them had the Silver gene 

All of this gives practically 124 possible colour variations! The pointed variety is named Neva Masquerade : the paws, tail and ears are dark and there is a dark mask on the muzzle. 

A Siberian Cat’s bright eyes greatly contribute to its alert, intelligent expression; they are large, slightly oval in shape but with a rounded lower line, set wide apart and slightly oblique. Eye colour ranges from coppers to greens, with blue being permitted only in the Neva Masquerade varieties. 

 

Grooming:

 

Siberian cats do not need a lot of grooming. But you have to brush them 2-3 times a week , to clean the eyes and to control the ears and teeth of the animal!
