Siberian Cats Allergies And More
A little history and information on the Siberian Cat
This cat has a true triple coat that requires regular grooming. We recommend a metal comb - plastic, we have found tends to mat the coat causing all degrees of static electricity. A nice metal comb, such as the type made by Greyhound (tm) and simulated by several others (see picture below), is what we choose. And although females do not carry nearly as heavy a coat as the males, they do still require the same type of regular grooming. We however do NOT recommend the furminator or any of the knock off prodcuts out there like it.
I found this article most helpful for those looking to groom their Siberian cat at home.
As a small hobby breeder, we love to show our kitties. We currently register and show in CFA, & TICA. We have had regional, national and breed winners in CFA, TICA & UFO, as well as in TAIGA, an independant breed club.
We are America's oldest still active exhibitor, having first imported the breed in 1992. Since then it has been our love and devotion!

The Siberian & Allergy Sufferers
We always recommend for allergy sufferers, never EVER to let the cat sleep with you. Use Hepa(tm) filters in your air conditioning, vacuum, and individual rooms; use a hypoallergenic soap in the laundry and wash things often. And ventilate the home well. A closed home allows for a buildup of potential allergens.
At no time, do we guarantee any animal to be non-allergenic
We do highly recommend you view the Dr. Oz's Video from his show about pets and allergies, and see his very own Siberian cat! Yes, he owns a Siberian cat! How cool is that?
