And the harsh conditions of Siberia influenced the formation of the appearance of the Siberian breed: a strong physique, long coat and developed undercoat. In the 80s, Russian felinologists drew attention to domestic cat breeds. For the formation of the Siberian breed, large, long-haired cats were selected, which were later used in breeding – it was they who determined the breed standard, which was recognized in the 90s by foreign felinological organizations. Currently, representatives of the Siberian breed can be found in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. Continue reading
