Kuvik Siberians is a small, home based TICA and CFA registered cattery located in Canal Fulton, Ohio which specializes only in breeding the rare and majestic hypoallergenic colorpoint Siberian cat, also known as the Neva Masquerade. Our kittens are from Champion Russian and European bloodlines and are well socialized as they are raised in a loving environment as part of our family with our two children.
We fell in love with the Siberian cat some time ago when we set out to find a kitten for our daughter at a local shelter. With great disappointment, we discovered that she was very allergic to cats. We tried many different breeds, including the hairless sphinx, but had no success. Our luck changed when we discovered a breeder of Siberians. We were very skeptical when we were told of the hypoallergenic claim, but sure enough, our daughter had no allergic response. We adopted Tatyana that day, our first Siberian.
The Siberian Cat is the national cat of Russia. It is an aboriginal breed with unknown origin. This natural breed has existed there for hundreds, if not thousands of years. There is documented history of Siberian as early as the year 1000. It is a cat from which many fairy tales have been derived.
The Siberian cat is an ancient medium-long haired breed believed to be the ancestor from which all modern day long-haired cats have evolved. After living in the cold Russian climate for many generations, over time it has developed a hardy constitution. In order to survive harsh conditions it developed a dense triple fur coat that is water resistant. Siberians are not true shedders, nor does their fur mat easily.
Siberians are a muscular cat that like high places and are powerful leapers. Having a sharp wit along with their robust athletic bodies enable them to be good hunters. Their natural beauty, gentle nature and being excellent mousers helped them to become popular in Russia. People would take their Siberian Cats with them when they moved.
