.Our cattery is currently home to two lovely and beautiful female Siberians. Their “official names” (what they are registered as) are “Coco and Chanel” but their “call names” (what we call them around the house) are “Dixie and Pixie”.
These sweet girls are pointed Siberians, known as Neva Masquerades. They are beautifully marked with long, luxurious coats, and striking blue eyes. As is typical with Siberians, they are loving, friendly, loyal and extremely social. More about their fabulous personalities are listed below. Dixie and Pixie’s mom was imported from Moscow, Russia and their dad was imported from Ukraine to ensure the breed’s integrity. This also ensures that all descendants have a pure bloodline.
Dixie and Pixie, along with their kittens, are all raised underfoot in our home and are part of our family (no cages here)!
Our home is free from all other animals. We only have our beautiful Siberians roaming the house free from dogs and any other animals people may be allergic to. We feel this is important to give those who are allergic to other pets a true testing to only the Siberian cat.
Allergy Friendly Known to be the “hypoallergenic” cat of the cat world, helping those who suffer from cat allergies to be able to own a cat. Their low level of the Fel D1 protein is what allows allergy sufferers to interact with these cats. Please see our Allergies page for more information on allergies.
The Purr Oh that purr! They are very quick to give and receive affection and quick to give you the satisfaction of hearing their glorious and LOUD purr. It’s so relaxing and soothing for the soul.
Loyalty Known to be the “dogs of the cat world”, these gems truly are very “dog like” in their personalities. They are one of the most trainable cats in the domestic cat kingdom. You can train them quite easily to do most tricks, or stay out of areas you don’t want them to be in. This is where their personalities shine as they give you the most pleading look and cutest meow to ask permission for something they know they aren’t supposed to be into…………..they are very persuasive.
Personality These beauties aren’t just all looks! They are extremely intelligent and have very strong and charming personalities. They are terrific at snuggling and greeting you each day when you come home, almost as if to say “where have you been?” They even get to know the families’ habits and patterns and know when to sit by the door because one of the family members is expected to arrive home soon. They are nosey and need to know everything you are doing at any given time, what is in your hands, what you brought home from the grocery store, you name it and it’s their business to know! They are extremely obedient and cooperative. Even when taking them to the vet for a nail trim (which is not their favourite thing to do) they obey and cooperate no matter what the circumstance.
Social These wonderful animals are social butterflies! They think that any company that comes to the door is there to see them... and why not? After all, they are so sweet and lovable. They insist on greeting company at the door to say hello, thanks for coming to see me! But even when the company isn’t around, they just love the company of their own family. They always need to be in the same room as their owners. These cats are not the type that will hide under the bed. Oh no! They need to be where the action is.
This is just a small taste of what you can expect from a Siberian Ice Forest Cat’s personality and behaviour. They are charming and sweet and can become anyone’s best friend. They will give you a lifetime of love and companionship and are some of the most personable cats around.
