The Siberian is a recognized
cat. Siberians are
strong and powerfully built, with well proportioned characteristics. They are
generally intelligent, playful, affectionate and loyal. Their fur is plush,
without the tendency to mat, and some claim that it is
hypoallergenic. (There is currently a study underway, commissioned at the
University of California (at Davis) to find out about this claim.)
Siberian Cats are known to be exceptionally high jumpers.
