Siberian cats have gentle, loving nature and well rounded personality. They adore children, readily accept the other household pets and get along great with the whole family. Giving them the ability to blend in and adapt to almost any family situation.

Siberians have a Dog-like devotion and personality. They are referred to as "the cat for dog people". Siberians enjoy being with their human companions. It is not in their nature to be a standoffish or aloof with their families. Coming when called, following the household members around and some more social cats even greet guests. Because they are a social cat, if left alone too often they can become quite lonely. An animal companion, such as another cat or a friendly dog can help relieve the loneliness and curb undesirable activities.

They like high places and are powerful leapers. Their sharp wit and muscular bodies enable them to be good hunters and excellent mousers. They can be easily trained to do simple tricks and be leash trained. Without regular physical and mental stimulus they can become bored and mischievous.

The Siberian Forest Cat (AKA Siberian Cat) is the national cat of Russia. It is an aboriginal breed with unknown origin. This natural breed has existed there for hundreds, if not thousands of years. There is documented history of Siberian as early as the year 1000. It is a cat from which many fairy tales have been derived.

The Siberian cat is an ancient medium-long haired breed believed to be the ancestor from which all modern day long-haired cats have evolved. After living in the cold Russian climate for many generations, over time it has developed a hardy constitution. In order to survive harsh conditions it developed a dense triple fur coat that is water resistant.

Siberians are not true shedders, nor does their fur mat easily. Siberians are a muscular cat that like high places and are powerful leapers. Having a sharp wit along with their robust athletic bodies enable them to be good hunters. Their natural beauty, gentle nature and being excellent mousers helped them to become popular in Russia. People would take their Siberian Cats with them when they moved. This helped to spread the breed throughout Asia.
