The Siberian Forest Cat!


The Siberian or the Siberian Forest Cat is a native cat from the taiga of Siberia. These cats are known to have been present in Russia for 1000s of years and are often seen as figures in old Russian folktales. They were often kept by shopkeepers to keep mice away from grain and other food. The breed had made it’s way to North America in the 1990s, but it still is not a very popular breed due to the costs associated with exporting a cat from Russia.
