What It Means to Be TICA or CFA Certified
When deciding on a breeder, it’s always a good idea to do some of your own due diligence. After all, you’re going to be spending thousands of dollars and making an important decision.
There are two main things you can do to reassure yourself that a breeder is operating ethically and professionally are:
Look online for reviews – This isn’t always easy and will often come up short as a lot of breeders will not have that many previous customers.
Look for TICA or CFA certifications – The CFA (The Cat Fanciers’ Association) and TICA (The International Cat Association) are professional organizations that oversee pedigree cats.
Any cattery or breeder that is a member of these organizations should be operating to a high standard.
You will almost certainly see them displaying their badges on their website if they’re members. You can always ask them, too, they will have heard of these organizations I’m sure.
How Much Should You Pay For a Siberian Cat?
Siberians cats and any exotic or rare pedigree for that matter are expensive.
I pulled up the prices listed on several breeder’s websites, and it looks like you’re currently going to spend somewhere in the region of $1,500-$4,000.
It’s normal for breeders to ask for a large non-refundable deposit, too.
This is because there are a lot of costs associated with caring for a litter, and they will want some reassurance that they’re not going to get out of pocket if you pull out.
Are Siberians Vocal or Noisy?
If you’re concerned about having a noisy cat, you needn’t be.
Siberians are loud purrers, and they make the occasional trilling or happy noise, but they’re not known to meow much.
They love hunting and are good mousers and will make those ‘chatting’ noises at birds looking out of a window, too.
Are Siberians Really Hypoallergenic Cats?
One of the reasons a lot of people want Siberians is because they’re advertised as being ‘hypoallergenic’.
Although this hasn’t been scientifically proven, there is some truth to this. It’s a known fact that Siberians produce low allergen FelD1, which is a glycoprotein that cats produce.
It’s this compound that causes allergic reactions in some people. Simply put; the higher the FelD1 allergen level in a cat, the more severe the allergic reaction someone will have.
Some types of Siberian are known to produce even lower amounts, like the Neva Masquerade. This is something you should discuss with a breeder based on your own allergies.
How Long Do Siberian Cats Live For?
The average lifespan of a Siberian is in the 10-12 years range. It’s not unheard of for them to live up to the ripe old age of 18 years though.
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.
