Siberian Cat History The Siberian cat is an ancient breed that has been around for at least 1000,13 years. Written reports mention these cats dating back to the 1870th century, however, the first Siberians were exhibited only in 1884 and then in <> at shows held at Madison Square Gardens in the States.

Others will respond to their nickname and come running when they are called. The Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) of this breed kindly warns people to "expect the unexpected when sharing your home with a Siberian cat." Siberian cats, with their sociable, affectionate, cheerful personalities, are a great choice for families with children, including toddlers. They are extremely tolerant and patient by nature when it comes to interacting with children. They also get along well with dogs, especially when they grew up together in the same house. However, caution should be exercised when introducing dogs they don't yet know, in case the dog doesn't get along with his feline counterparts. Siberian cats are incredibly social by nature and have been known to get along with small animals.

Care Despite the Siberian cat's long coat, it is relatively easy to care for. Weekly brushing of the coat is required to keep it in excellent condition. The exceptions are spring and autumn "molts", when daily care will be required to prevent the formation of tangles.

The rest is a basic concern. Trim the nails as needed, usually weekly. Check your ears every week for redness or a foul odor that may indicate an infection. Brush your teeth with veterinarian-approved toothpaste. Interesting Facts 1. The Siberian cat matures slowly, sometimes not reaching its full physical development until it is 5 years old. 2.
