We thought I was Maine Coon/Norwegian Forest Cat, but mom just saw a special on TV and thinks I may be Siberian.

Siberian cats vary bu generally they have a double coat, very long fur, tufts of fur in their ear and between their toes. They tend to like to climb to high places and are very chatty, I have heard people say they are dog like and they get attached to one particular person.

We have a Siberian. They are quite distinctive cats and very definitely have long coats and, as the poster above said, long tufts of fur in the ears and between the toes. They are usually a variation on brindled colouring - variations of brown, ginger and white mostly, although I've also seen silvery Sibs (and one with points, but I believe that's not a recognised colouring now).

Hope that helps!

By the way, seeing your photos I would say this is not a Siberian - you are gorgeous but you look more like a Norwegian Forest type to me. Siberians are generally a bit chunkier in the face and body. Hard to describe, but just a slightly different shape.

Siberians are also known for being hypo-allergenic cats, meaning they cause little to no allergies. My girlfriend has asthma attacks sometimes at my parent's house, and they have two short hair cats and my mother cleans all the time. But she isn't bothered by Mischa's fur at all.

Hi, we also thought that I was a Maine Coon, but someone has pointed out that I may be a Siberian. Do you think I could be a Siberian cat?

FATTY M-CAT- BASS - - You look like a Maine Coon. My Grandma had one for 15 years. You could be mixed with Siberian though if not purebred....,.
