The Siberian Forest (or the Siberian) is originally a wild cat breed. They are strongly built and highly independent. Many cat lovers adore them for their thick coat and lion-like mane. These cats are popular as pets in American and European families. Nowadays, the Siberian cat price is around $600/kitten. Despite their affordable price, you should consider carefully before taking one home due to this breed’s aggressive and independent nature.

The origin of the Siberian
The Siberian has a history of at least 1000 years, when Russian migrants brought this wild cat breed to Siberia. In the 19th century, this breed started appearing in England and America, and became the ancestor of many modern long-haired cats. However, up till now, Siberians are still very scarce and not recognized by The International Cat Association.
Characteristics of purebred Siberians
The Siberian is medium-sized with a compact but firm and strong body. They are well-proportioned with strong, flexible legs that allow them to jump very far.
This breed has a long, thick coat and a lion-like mane around their neck. Not only beautiful, Siberians’ coat is extremely effective in keeping their body warm.
Like most cats, the Siberian’s coat varies in colors: gray, striped, tabby, spotted… Siberians have no unique colors of their own. They moult twice a year. The first time is in winter, when they shed a lot of hair. The second time is in summer, when they shed much less.
Siberians are playful. They like to joke around and play with children. They get along well with other pets and people. Despite their active nature, they are also calm, gentle and docile.
