Siberian
Facts & Advice

A loyal companion with impressive athletic skills

The Siberian, a fluffy long-haired breed is the national cat of Russia and originated as an outdoor cat. It has a fairly solid build and a rounded head. The Siberian is very energetic with an amazing jumping ability, and some say its character is almost dog-like: it will wait at the door for you to come home, stay near you in the house and has particularly expressive eyes.
To ensure your Siberian cat is protected in the case of an emergency, take a look at our cat insurance policies.
