Siberian cat is a cultural heritage of Russia, the pride of Russian breeders. Siberian cats – breed that is native, almost formed naturally. Domestic breeders had only to hone to perfection and to certify the breed.
The aboriginal Russian cat breeds in the world not so much — and "Siberian" rightfully occupies a leading position. These cats were heroes of Russian folk tales, mentioned in verses of great Russian poets.
The first thing a cat is different from others is its size and weight. A powerful stocky body with a fairly developed musculature makes these majestic cats. Muscle mass in Siberian kittens is formed long enough as a man to 3 years. Front legs slightly shorter than the back, making the spine of the cat is slightly sloping (this is what gives the strength and agility of the animal). The average weight of adult Siberian cat – 6 kg, cat – 12 kg.
The "Siberians" a large, muscular legs, which distinguish them from other cats because between their fingers is rather long tufts of hair.
Long hair Siberian kitten is hypoallergenic, which makes this essential cat pet for people with allergies. Wool cats of this breed consists of 2 layers: a very thick undercoat and coarse coat, which almost does not get wet. Through this "wool cover" the cats feel comfortable in all weather conditions and temperatures.
Head cats of this breed are rather large, rounded, and the neck is short but strong. The muzzle has a trapezoidal shape. In the ears they have, you can see the brush, they inherited from their ancestors.
The eyes are oval in shape, they are medium sized and slightly slanting.
The nature and some features
The origin of the cat makes itself felt.
The Siberian cat is an excellent hunter. The hunter instinct she developed so that she will not be lost in any "extreme" conditions. With the agility she caught not only the mouse, but the rabbit. The same instinct of the hunter makes the cat look like a dog. She (happily) brings things in his mouth.
Fearlessness. "Siberians" protect your space, do not allow foreign animals and people, telling them about what came "strangers". They are not afraid of dogs, people, and that scares cats (sharp noise, the hum of machines, sirens...).
The learning ability.
The Siberian cat is smart and obedient. It can be accustom to a certain place to toilet.
Mind, judgment. The cat will never get anywhere without making sure that it is safe. Before to retrieve a toy from under the seat (Cabinet, bed), she will think twice about how to do it.
Siberian cat picky. These cats will play with any object (toy, piece of paper, thread...) that they will be offered.
Passion to the height. It is not surprising, seeing the cat on the fridge, cupboard or high up in a tree, as it is for them quite normal.
Restraint against the people. Cats of this breed are affectionate, but restrained. They will not always ask for hands, but will never leave his master when he is bad (sick, upset). They will adjust to their owners, as they themselves see themselves as such.
Before to choose a relatively safe breed, you should find out how develop an Allergy to cats. Glycoprotein, which reacts intensely human immunity, contained in the salivary and sebaceous glands of animals, the name of this allergen - Felix domesticus D1.
Like many other protein compounds, glycoprotein perceived by the human immune system as a foreign malicious agent. In houses where there live a cat, these allergens can be found everywhere, they are posted instantly, and even after the sad parting with a favorite of about six months are stored on objects, furniture, carpets and so on. Molecules allergens much less pollen, they immediately pass the barrier of the bronchial membranes of the owner of the animal, and can provoke an allergic reaction. Fel D1 is distributed cat in the process of licking the fur or skin, so even the so-called "naked" cat - Sphinx, can also be allegorist, like a Persian cat.In defense of cats I should say that allergies can have a very different reason, to which the family cat does not apply, this factor should determine with the help of allergic.
Before you decide which cats do not cause allergies, and to choose one of them, you should be familiar with the following information:
Approximately every sixth inhabitant of the planet is predisposed to allergic reactions, including animals. Every third of them has a cat and is quite happy with this choice. Consequently, even allergies have the opportunity to enjoy fellowship with fluffy or smooth-haired companion.
Especially intensively react to the family feline asthma, however, more than 50% of them give birth to cats and do not suffer asthmatic attacks.
One in four Allergy - owner of hypoallergenic cats through time looking for his favorite new host, because hope for a safe, "non-allergic" cohabitation is not justified.
An allergic reaction to family pet can both increase and decrease when there is a natural desensitization.
It is believed that the members of the cat family that have white, light color, less allergic, than them to come with dark hair. This information has no scientific or statistical evidence and is more of a Supervisory nature. Research conducted with the help of 300 volunteers are not relevant from a medical point of view.
The first signs of allergies can occur after a month or more once in the house there is a cat.
It is believed that cats and kittens of either sex less dangerous in terms of allergies than adult cats.
35% of the brave Allergy sufferers, passionate love of cats, over time, have adapted to coexist with their personal favorites, but paradoxically continued to respond to other people's Pets.
Allergic reactions can cause not more than 2 types of antigens, so if the person is already allergic to dogs, cats safe for him.
Siberian cat, at first glance, can not be considered hypoallergenic because they have such thick and long hair! However, the natural level of Fel D1 they are quite low, so the Allergy society luxury "Siberians" have nothing to fear.
