They welcomed a pair of Neva Masquerade Siberian cats named Finn and Natalia to their family. She and her family ultimately fell in love with the strong, and rustic look and intelligence of the traditional Siberian cats. She also discovered that they highly trainable and are a very healthy breed with hypoallergenic properties and exceptional temperament just like a dog.

We often get this question: "Don't they suffer with the weather and extreme temperatures?" We would like to re-assure everyone all of our imports Siberian Cats are adapting very well, lounging on our beds and sofas. When temperature get over 90 degrees we do restrict access of our secure outdoor patio and they do enjoy it later on after sun down. Siberians express the three natural types of feline fur: guard hairs, awn hairs, and down. These three layers protect the cat from the Russian weather extremes, and provide a hardy, easy to care for coat today. The fur is textured but glossy, which decreases the occurrence of matting.
We have intentionally part from breeding Silver coloured Siberian Cats because they have been proven to have the highest levels of Fel d 1 responsible for allergic reaction. [Not-for-profit association of breeders, Siberian Research Inc] We do not breed the Neva Masquerade (Colorpoint ) because of having softer fluffy coat due to unknown mixes, we quickly discovered after adopting Finn our Neva Masquerade that they do shed a lot and also do suffer from mats if not brushed daily.
Traditional Siberian cats moult once or twice a year. The first moult is at the end of winter. The winter moult is instigated not by a change in temperature but by a change in day length. Many Siberians will experience a less intense "mini-moult" at the end of the summer season, unlike other cats, which will experience a "heavy moult" more than twice a year. When Fall and Winter comes around our cats coat fluff up very nicely also it is the best season for us to compete in cats shows.
