Doing Due Diligence and Looking for TICA and CFA Certifications
Buying a Siberian cat is a big deal, buying any cat or pet is for that matter. It makes sense to do some due diligence before rushing into a decision.
When deciding on a breeder you want to buy from, a couple of things I recommend doing are:
Looking online for reviews from previous customers – This is not always easy to find, as they may not have many previous customers and not many people go out of their way to leave a review somewhere.
Looking for professional certifications – Two of the professional certifications breeders and catteries can obtain are from The CFA (The Cat Fanciers’ Association) and TICA (The International Cat Association).
It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t work with a breeder if they’re not affiliated with any professional organizations, it’s just added peace of mind.
Ultimately, you need to be as comfortable as you can be that you’re buying a kitten from a breeder you trust.
How Much Are Siberian Cats?
It’s hard to give you a price on what you can expect to pay as there are so many factors that affect the price of pedigree cats.
As a general rule of thumb, however, you’re likely to be paying in the ballpark of $1,500-$4,000.
This is why it’s often a good idea to call more than one breeder and discuss exactly what you want from your kitten as you might find the price varies.

Are Siberian Cats Good for Allergy Sufferers?
Siberian cats are good for allergy sufferers, Yes.
You may have seen them being sold as hypoallergenic, and there is certainly some truth to this.
The science behind why Siberian cats are better for allergy sufferers revolves around an allergen called FelD1 that cats produce.
It’s this allergen that causes allergic reactions in people with allergies. Siberians produce a much lower than average amount of FelD1, and as a result, allergy sufferers do not have the same reaction as they do with other cats.
It’s still very much dependent on the individual, and the cat. The level of FelD1 will vary, as will the severity of a person’s allergies.
If you are a sufferer, you should always try and spend some time around a Siberian before buying one to be on the safe side.
How Long Do Siberian Cats Live?
According to various sources, the average life expectancy of a Siberian cat is 10-12 years.
The only congenital disease known to affect Siberians is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is the most common type of heart disease cats suffer from.
Do Siberian Cats Make Good Pets?
Let’s cut to the chase, Siberian cats make excellent family pets; both as indoor and outdoor cats.
I wouldn’t blame you for thinking they would be happiest outdoors and in the colder weather, but that’s really not the case.
Siberians do have thick coats, but they’re happy in all weathers and because they are so social they are perfectly happy as indoor cats.
You will need some strong cat furniture and plenty of toys, but they’re very easy to care for. If you do let them out, they are excellent mousers, so be prepared for that.
They can be quite vocal too. Expect plenty of trills, tail shaking, and purring when they’re happy, and they’ll let you know when they’re hungry.
The only considerations most new owners need to be aware of are that they’re taking on a pet that needs brushing and a decent amount of attention.
But let’s be honest, that’s not a hardship, that’s just being a cat owner.
