Siberian Cats are warm and loving towards their humans. They are quite happy sitting on your lap and will come across as friendly towards guests. This cat typically weighs 8 to 17 pounds and is generally healthy, but one problem that has been seen in the breed is Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (a form of heart disease). One thing that is unusual for cats to love is water, however this is not the case with Siberians; this is probably due to its heritage as a forest dweller. They boast a long and thick coat and come in many colours and combination colours. It can take the Siberian up to five years to reach its full size and coat.
