The Siberian cat can truly be called a Russian specialty cat. This cat breed is, without a doubt, one of the most ancient ones. For the longest time its ancestors lived throughout Siberia and the Russian Far East.
The Siberian weather has provided these cats with thick waterproof furs, with luxurious ruffs, with little furry pants on their hind legs, and, of course, with their felt paws – there is fur on them everywhere, even between the fingers! And, moreover, this cute costume does not require any special grooming: the Siberian cats get barely any mats and elf-locks.
And, of course, the life in the wild has given the Siberian cats their stellar health, their hunting skills, and their nordic temperament, meaning they are brave, cunningly smart, and independent. All the while, they still love people, especially kids. They are never clingy, but always loyal.
They are perfect companions that spend their time by their owner’s side with great pleasure. They are easy to train to walk outside in a harness and to calmly go through any amount of car rides. Although they may look Russian-tough on the outside, they still enjoy their playtime. They would chase a cat teaser with a lot of excitement, sliding on the floor on their little felt paws and doing silly somersaults from time to time.
