Artekatz Siberians is the foremost breeder of siberian cats in South Africa, bringing joy to cat lovers who could previously not own a cat due to allergies.
WHY CHOOSE A SIBERIAN CAT? CHARACTERISTICS
Hypo-allergenic Traditional and Neva Masquerade siberian cats make excellent pets, as they are intelligent, playful, loving and loyal.Furthermore, siberian cats love water and will often dunk their toys into their water bowl, or bring toys to their favourite human for a game of fetch! Siberian cats are known to be dog-like so tends to be both a great problem solver and also, rather like dogs, loyal to its adopted family. Therefore, they are well suited to households with other pets and children. Most noteworthy, this robust natural breed integrates well with other animals and is often a good choice for allergy sufferers, as they produce less FEL D-1 protein in their saliva. It is the saliva, and not as commonly assumed the hair that people are allergic to.
The first official pedigree was established in Russia in 1987, so it is a relatively new breed. Siberian cats can take up to 5 years to mature with males weighing up to 9kg. They are typically not very vocal cats (our silver female is an exception), but communicate with small chirps.
