Today we'll be taking a closer look at a cat known for it’s stunning coat and social nature: the Siberian cat.

Let's get acquainted:

They typically have round faces with yellow or white tufts around their ears.


Their tail is uniquely curved, often described as “plumed.”

They average between 8-16 pounds in weight when fully matured.

They have a long, dense double coat with a soft and silky undercoat.


Colors range from brown tabby, black tabby, and solid white.

Their fur should always be kept clean; weekly brushes are recommended to prevent tangles and mats.

Regular baths may also be necessary if your cat suffers from skin irritation caused by allergies or flea bites.

They have large, almond-shaped eyes that come in various colors, including blue, green, and gold.

These felines are known for their high intelligence and curiosity – they have a fondness for exploring their surroundings.

Intelligence of Siberian Cats

Positive reinforcement methods such as clicker training or offering food rewards can effectively train them.

Prone to Parasites

Due to their fluffy coats, Siberians are prone to picking up fleas and ticks if left outdoors for too long.

Ensure your pet has regular flea/tick treatments from your vet and weekly brushing sessions.

Proper socialization is an important part of owning any pet.

Take them on car rides, bring them around pets and children, and expose them gently to unfamiliar noises or places.
