Aren't there any siberian breeders on this site? I really like that breed. like maine coons, only a little smaller and rounder. I was really hoping to meet a breeder. Nobody ever answered my old posts, but... Oh well. i guess i'll never find a siberian breeder near me.

Siberians are not a common breed and it is likely there are very few breeders... I found the best place to find a cat breeder of the less common breeds is the local cat show")

Thank you sharky. I will try to get to one somehow, but with school and all it could be a long time. They are not that uncommon a breed, however, they have spread well since '91. I just hoped to find one here because it is so widely used, for a site on cats.

This should give you a good start. It is the Fanciers Breeder Referral List. Good luck!

I'm not a Siberian breeder, but I live together with a colourpoint Siberian (Neva Masquerade). All I can say it's a wonderful breed, very loving and affectionate. If I wouldn't want to breed the Traditional Persian I definately would choose the Siberian

Do you have a photo of him? I have read about the nevas but never seen a picture. Do YOU think he is hypoallergenic? I have heard conflicting opinions about that. I was looking for a breeder because my dad has allergies, and i thought if i could take him to see some, he'd let me get one. I have two outdoor/barn cats, but i want some indoors.

Yes of course I have some pictures of her, she's called Amélie and you can see lots of pictures on my website She's a seal tabby point:

Siberians could be the answer to people who are allergic, it only depends on what kind of allergy you have, there are different types. I've heard a lot of stories of people getting a lot of reactions when they are with cats, but none with Siberians.
The best thing you can do is to contact a Siberian breeder in your neighbourhood who only has Siberians and spend there a couple of hours. When your dad has no reaction after the time he usually should have (some have the reaction only the day after so be aware of that), you can assume it will be ok. But don't decide to quickly, nothing is worse to say goodbye to a kitty you just give a place in your heart because it doesn't seem to work out afterall.
On this website almost all Siberian Catteries are linked in the world: http://www.vom-ohlenberg.de/sibi-zuechter.htm

A Ct Rose Siberian Forest Cats Cattery is a very good cattery that will help you find a cattery where you can test, she also knows a lot about the hypo-allergenic idea: http://home.comcast.net/~actrose/page2.html

Thanks for the websites, but i don't speak german, so i can't read that one.

I have 3 Siberians that we got because several members of my family have allergies to cats and we read that they were hypoallergenic. Remember, hypoallergenic does not mean non-allergenic and your father might still react.

You really have to visit the breeder that you'd be purchasing from because different strains of Siberians affect allergic people differently. While we have no reaction to our Gracie, my husband is mildly allergic to our males.
My whole family spent several hours visiting Gracie's breeder so we could make sure we weren't allergic. We bought our boys from a different breeder and and just assumed that noone would react because they were also Siberians.

Siberians are becoming more popular in the U.S. and you can do a google search for breeders.

I tried google. The closest i found was in indiana(we live in Ky), Anisiia cattery, but they ignored my emails! I find hardly any per breeder site. I was hoping the breeders came here like all the other breeds' breeders, and would see my post. Thanks,

They are all links to catteries all over the world, the countries are also written in English so that should not be the problem

Hi - sorry, just read this if your still out there. We have a few Siberian litters a year, mainly we are bengal breeders, but I love the Siberians also and for people who are allergic they could be the answer to having a furry friend. We are expecting litters next month if you are still looking.

Thank you. As a breeder, do you know any other breeders in/near Ky? There is no way i can go all the way to Michigan. i can't really go anywhere at all. My dad won't take me far.
post #18 of 32
Not off hand...the only other Siberian breeders I know are in Russia. That is where our cats came from. There are not a lot of Siberian breeders out there. And I know that ours usually are spoken for before they are born. Chances are you may have to have a kitten shipped or have the breeder meet you half way if possible. (We will meet people vs. shipping if possible. Wish I could be of more help to you!!

To me they are just another moggy type breed, they don't look any different from domestics to me. *shakes head*

Yeah sam, but they come in cool colors, and they are hypoallergenic
*sniff* i can't have other indoor cats because of my dad's allergies. I have two outdoor cats(we have a lot of land and a barn), but it isn't the same. That's why i'm looking for a breeder near me. And you still haven't shown me Sapan pictures!!

I don't know if you checked out the breedlist.com link. If not, there are a few breeders in Virginia which isn't too far, there's also a listing for Arkansas.

Again, i can't go more than like 20 miles because of my dad.

LOL I searched it up and Siberians just come in every colour a Domestic cat comes in. Nothing special there.

Sam i said that because other breeds don't allow all colors. And they are hypoallergenic. They are almost as big as maine coons. I love all cats, but these may be the only ones i can have indoors .

Where are my Sapan pictures??

Be patient alright - he lives with my Nana and it's kitten season so it's not like I can go into her cattery and whip out the camera.

Ok, i'll be patient. But i still want to see the photos. Do you have any old ones i can look at until kitten season ends?

The bengal breeder that I work with also has Siberians. She is located in Denver, NC. I'm not sure where you are but I'm sure she ships.

I am a siberian breeder but sorry I am in Norway.
Here is some story about the Siberians.

The story of Siberian cat.

Siberians have been around for many years as far as recorded history tell.

The first mentioned was in Harrison Wier`s book our cats and all about them, included information about the earliest cat show held in England in 1871.

Russian story tell Siberian is a natural breed and is the national cat of Russia.

The Siberian have semi longhair and a full coat in the winter, in the summer allows shorter less dens coat.

Russia story tell the Siberian are taken from Russia to Siberia, where they developed their thick coat against the cold winters.

Then later they was brought back to Russia where they bred.

Wild cats have bred with domestic cats and the result was Siberian cats.

The Siberians cats are very territorial and a good hunters.

Some of like to swim and stay close to water.

Not all of the Siberians like water.

Siberians in tundra like to hunt on the ground, but cats in the forest was hunting birds, and fishing in the water.

The Siberians Fife standard http://www.stanlejsiberianscatts.com...atstandard.htm

Neva masquerade is a different breeds and Siberians.

Neva masquerade lilac, fawn, chocolate and cinnamon they can also have Burmese pattern and this is not accepted in Siberians.

How is it that the Siberian is hypo-allergenic?

Scientists have named the protein in the feline saliva, FEL D-1. When the cat cleans itself, the protein then dries on the fur leaving dander. The dander particles are small and air filters cannot remove them from the air. The Siberian is void of the FEL D1 protein, therefore no dander. However if the allergic party suffers from the IgE late trigger' antibody reaction, their chances of compatibility of owning a Siberian are lowered.

Are studies being done on the hypo-allergenic fur?

No official study has been commissioned to date. Someday Science will be interested in this wonderful anomaly. But for now we have empirical analysis. After Hundreds of sales to people with “cat allergies” over an 9 year period, I already know what you must find out, that most people with cat allergies can in fact have a Siberian. In the beginning, I sold two Siberians to an asthmatic named Ernie Sherman. Ernie had a severe allergy to cats and reacted to them by showing asthmatic symptoms. Because of his asthma, Ernie made regular visits to the Mayo clinic. At one point he informed them that he was now the proud owner of two male Siberians. In disbelief the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville Florida began a series of tests testing Ernie with regular cat dander and Siberian cat dander. Ernie knew which was which almost immediately. The regular cat test on one arm produced a baseball size welt while the arm with the Siberian particles had no reaction The Mayo clinic had been using Ernie as their guinea pig, running test after test to try and make him react to Siberian dander. They failed miserably. The doctors still find it unbelievable but are now convinced that there is something very special and different about the Siberians. NINE years later Ernie is going strong and is the proud owner of FOUR Male Siberians.

How was the hypo-allergenic fur discovered?

In 1995 , I made the acquaintance of Gregg Neill, a gentleman who was working on marketing a biodegradable litter from citrus rinds. I asked him if I could try a sample. He said yes, and along with his fiancee', Debbie brought some product to my home. I became aware of his product because I read an article in a trade paper. He mentioned in the article that he didn't have a cat because his fiancee was severely allergic. Once at the house, Debbie remarked that she was not having an allergy attack. I thought it was because she was standing near an air purifier. On her second trip to my house, she remarked again about her lack of reaction. I thought she was standing too close to an open door. I was skeptical. After her third visit, Debbie insisted that there was something uniquely different about the Siberians. Again I wouldn't believe her and she remarked rather vehemently, " Look Lynda, I know my allergies!" I agreed to test her "scientifically". I placed her in a room with more than twenty Siberian adults and told her to pet the cats and then rub her eyes. After about 30 minutes, she left. I had envisioned itchy, watery eyes that had swollen shut. I called several days later to check the results. She was fine. I asked her if she wanted a Siberian, though I already knew the answer. She was so delighted, and has owned one of these beautiful cats since February 1996.
