The Siberian cat, originating from Russia, is a centuries-old natural variety of domestic cat that has recently been developed into a formal breed. Also known as the Siberian Forest Cat, this breed is characterised by its medium to large size, muscular build and distinctive bushy tail.
Historically, Siberian cats have been a part of Russian culture for centuries, mentioned in folklore and literature. However, it wasn’t until the end of the Cold War in the 1990s that Siberian cats were exported worldwide, with the first cats appearing in Australia in the early 2000s.
The Siberian cat’s personality is often likened to that of a dog. They are affectionate, loyal and enjoy following their owners around. Additionally, they are known to be comfortable around dogs and children, making them a great family-friendly choice.
