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?
There is a long list of things that can affect the price of a Siberian, so it’s almost impossible to give you an accurate estimate.
That said, I looked at 10 popular breeders, and taking into account their pricing it’s fair to say you can expect to pay somewhere in the range of $1,500-$4,000.
Something to look out for are breeders that charge a lot more for cats with low Fel D1 allergens or show quality pedigree.
If you just want a Siberian as a housepet on a budget, it’s worth calling around and making this clear to breeders.
Additional Resources for Siberian Cat Owners
It’s hard to bring a Siberian into your home without being fascinated by these magnificent Russian creatures.
So, I thought I’d share some additional resources that might come in handy if you want to meet other Siberian owners online:
Siberian cats on Reddit – Reddit has one of the largest online communities for everything from people who love pancakes to Siberian owners.
If you want to share pictures of your new kitty, or maybe find out more about what it’s like living with a Siberian – you should drop into this subreddit.
Adoptapet.com – I thought I’d include a link to Adoptapet, just in case you can’t find a new kitten or an expected litter from a breeder near you.
Adoptapet is one of the largest online resources that connect shelters, catteries, and rescues across the U.S. with cats needing homes.
You never know, you might find a Siberian in need of a new home you simply can’t pass on. It’ll be a lot less expensive, too.
Why Siberians Are Good for Allergy Sufferers
I’m sure you’ve heard that Siberians are one of the few breeds of cats that are hypoallergenic.
This is in fact true, although I have to point out that it still comes down to the severity of the individual’s allergies and the cat.
The science behind this is that there is an allergen called FelD1 that causes allergies. Cats produce this allergen when they groom themselves and it easily becomes airborne.
Siberians are known to produce much fewer amounts of FelD1, but they do not produce 0% of this allergen.
Everyone I’ve spoken to with allergies has been fine around Siberians, but I thought it was still worth mentioning that.
Average Lifespan of a Siberian Cat
Siberian cats have an average lifespan of 10-12 years. They are hardy, healthy cats, generally speaking, with the only congenital disease listed as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).
If you meet all of their needs and provide a quality feed, you shouldn’t be surprised if your cat brings you joy for 15-18 years.
Are Siberian Cats Good Family Pets?
Although a lot of people seek out Siberian cats because they are hypoallergenic, there is a long list of reasons why there are excellent family pets.
It’s the personality of a Siberian that wins most people over. They are friendly, intelligent, curious, and social.
If you’re after an independent house cat that you rarely interact with, Siberians are not for you.
They love human interaction, get on well with other animals, and will demand a lot of playtime while they’re still kittens.
They’re low maintenance and their coats are a lot easier to manage than they may look, too.
As long as you brush them a couple of times per week, which is more fun than it is a chore, their coats should stay in top condition.
So, if you’re after a fun, interactive, and playful kitten to become the latest member of your home, I recommend adopting a Siberian.
