The Siberian Cat
When searching on the internet for a Siberian kitten, some of the terminology on websites can be quite confusing.
You might see phrases and words used such as Neva Masquerade, Colourpointed, Tabby, Solids, etc.These are names for different patterns of the cats coat. All pedigree Siberian cats are from similar ancestors who's origins were Russian.
Picture above is a litter of Siberian kittens, from left to right they are a silver tabby, a seal tabby colourpointed, a silver tabby, a seal tabby colourpointed, a silver tabby and a seal silver tabby, all born from a Silver tabby Mum cat.
All these kittens are TRUE pedigree Siberians.
The phrase of 'Neva Masquerade' is simply a nickname for a colourpointed Siberian Cat. It is not a different or separate breed.
The word 'Traditional' is a new phrase used by some breeders who's cats have no colourpointed cats in their immediate parentage and who wish to breed kittens that are visual non-colourpointed.
Siberians can be born in many colours and patterns.
Below are some photographs of our cats, with a description of their coat colour and pattern.
