CATEGORY: Traditional and

Pointed.

DIVISIONS : All.

COLORS: All.

PERMISSIBLE OUTCROSSES:

None.

HEAD:

Shape: Modified wedge of

medium/large size with rounded

contours, in good proportion to the

body. The head is broader at the top

of the skull and narrows slightly to a

full-rounded muzzle. The

cheekbones are neither high set nor

prominent.

Ears: Medium-large, rounded,

and tilt slightly forward. The ears

should be set as much on the sides

of the head as on top. Ideal position

is one to one and one half ear width

apart. The hair over the back of the

ear is short and thin. From the

middle of the ear, the furnishings

become longer and cover the base of

the ear. Lynx tipping allowable.

Eyes: Large, almost round, with

the outer corner angled slightly

towards the base of the ear. The

eyes should be set more than one

eye’s width apart. There is no

relationship between eye color and

coat color/pattern.

Chin: The chin is well-rounded

but not protruding, and is in line with

the nose.

Muzzle: The muzzle is short in

length, full and rounded. There is a

slight muzzle curvature, but the

transition between the side of the

head and the muzzle is gentle and

inconspicuous.

Profile: The top of the head is

almost flat, with a slight nose

curvature of a gentle slope from the

forehead to the nose and a slight

convex curvature before the tip when

viewed in profile.

Neck: Rounded, substantial and

well-muscled.

BODY:

Torso: The body is medium in

length, and well-muscled with the

back arched slightly higher than the

shoulders, with a barrel-shaped, firm

belly giving the sensation of solid

weight (which appears with age).

Legs: Medium in length. The

hind legs are slightly longer than the

front, and should have substantial

boning.

Feet: The feet are big and

rounded, with toe tufts desirable.

Tail: The tail is medium in length,

wide at the base, tapering slightly to

a blunt tip. The tail should be

somewhat shorter than the length of

the body.

Boning: Substantial.

Revised 05/01/05 Siberian Breed Standard, 05/01/2005

Musculature: Substantial, powerful.

 

COAT/COLOR/PATTERN:

Length: This is a moderately long

to longhaired cat with a triple coat.

The hair on the shoulder blades and

lower part of the chest being thick

and slightly shorter. There should be

an abundant ruff setting off the head.

There is a tight undercoat (in mature

cats), thicker in cold weather. Allow

for warm weather coats. The hair

may thicken to curls on the belly and

britches, but a wavy coat is not

characteristic.

Texture: Varies coarse to soft,

varying according to color.

Pattern: Clear patterns are

desirable, but secondary to type.

Color: All traditional and pointed

colors and combinations are

accepted with or without white.

White or off-white allowed on chin,

breast and stomach of tabbies; white

allowed in most areas. Strong colors

are desirable, but secondary to type.

OTHER:

Balance: Well-proportioned.

Condition: Excellent health in

good overall condition.

Temperament: Must be unchallenging.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The

Siberian is a medium-large cat with

the overall appearance of excellent

physical condition, strength and

power, modified by a sweet facial

expression. The general impression

of the body is one of circles and

roundness. Siberians are slow to

mature, taking as long as 5 years to

reach full maturity. Females are

considerably smaller than males, and

allowances should be made when

comparing females and young cats to

the standard. Size is secondary to

type.

ALLOWANCES: Because the

Siberian is a slow maturing breed,

coat and physical structure should be

taken into consideration when

judging kittens and young adults.

Buttons, spots, and lockets.

PENALIZE: Straight profile, narrow

muzzle, long tail, delicate boning,

non-muscular, long body, almondshaped

eyes, very long legs.

WITHHOLD ALL AWARDS (WW):

Evidence of illness, poor health,

emaciation, visible tail fault.
