Before You Go Visit Siberian Cat Breeders Georgia

By Sandra Walker

An avid cat lover, you are probably reading this article right now because of your general interest in felines and you may be in the market for a new four legged companion of the feline persuasion. You may have started to toy around with the idea of getting a Siberian, and are all set to go out and visit some Siberian Cat Breeders Georgia out there and make your final acquisition. Before you do make that final commitment while you are in Georgia, read on and learn more about this breed.

The breed is also known by another name, the Moscow Semi Longhair. It is a popular breed in Russia and has been part of Russian culture and storytelling for the past ten centuries at least. It is a cat that is used in may farms and homesteads in the Siberian wilderness to catch rats and mice, a job that this breed is still doing today actually.

A high energy level from this cat is to be expected and many will say that because of this they have been gifted with the gift of eternal youth. The cat takes its time in achieving a mature disposition and temperament, taking up to an average of five years in some cases.

A cat that also acts like a dog in many respects, it has the distinct behavior of always wanting to follow you around and always wants to be included in any activity that you do. Apart from purring it will chirp like a little bird, a characteristic also seen in the Egyptian Mau. Loving water, this cat will give one no problems when it comes to regular bathing or washing.

Every breed will develop medical conditions sooner or later, and the Siberian is no exception. During its lifetime it can develop heart enlargement relate issues and some kidney related ones. This cat is a voracious eater so its diet must be controlled and limited also. It would not hurt to also bring it to regular consultations with your veterinarian.

It is a cat that is easy to bathe as it has been aforementioned that it does like water. It may be a challenge to give it a thorough washing and shampoo though as it has water resistant fur. It is recommended that its fur be brushed regularly even though the fur is mat resistant and not prone to tangle. The regular brushing will at least give it an overall clean and groomed look and also increase bonding between owner and pet.

The fur of this breed is also considered and widely accepted as being hypoallergenic. Despite this, be advised to keep a one month living period with it and do a strict observation to see if it does cause any allergy triggers to occur.

Once you have weighed all your options and did further research on many of its other qualities, then the time is ripe that you do go out and get one. Do schedule a visit to a reputable dealer or breeder and be aware that some do try to cheat you by selling a Maine Coon or a Norwegian Forest Cat instead.
