Siberian Cat: Main Characteristics The heart ofa Iber is as hot as his homeland is cold. He loves people and wants to be around them, so expect this affectionate cat to follow you, including to the bathroom, and "help" you with all your reading, watching TV, computer work, and cooking. It is generally not a cat that is shy in the presence of strangers. The Siberian is not only loving and attentive, but also active. He will provoke games by bringing you your favorite trinket to throw. Because of his heritage as a forest dweller, he loves to play with water, possibly a genetic memory of fishing for food. Don't be surprised if it is splashing around in the bathtub, drinking from a fountain or tap, or making puddles by slapping your paw in your bowl of water. As befits a working and hunting cat, he is very athletic and you can find him balancing on a doorway or advancing to the highest point in the room. Activity and noise do not bother him at all. Siberian Cat Health Both purebred cats and cross-breedshave various cases of health problems that can be genetic in nature. Siberians are generally healthy, but one problem that has been seen in the breed is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a form of heart disease that causes enlargement of the heart muscle. It is found in pedigree and mongrel cats. Siberians are one of the breeds that can be affected by this disease.

If they look dirty and treat with special lotions. Avoid using cotton swabs, which can damage the inside of the ear. Most of the growth of the Siberian occurs in its first year and a half of life.
