MAINTENANCE

The Siberian cat lived in extreme conditions and is therefore very resistant and of good health. Although it has a dense coat, it is enough to brush it twice a week to prevent complications and the formation of knots.  During the season, when they change their fur, it is necessary to comb and brush them more frequently which they thoroughly enjoy. Since their hair is waterproof, it protects them from dirt, and they therefore need not be bathed often. Bathing a Siberian cat is quite demanding because the fur’s water resistant quality makes wetting and shampooing difficult.

 Teeth need preventive care.  Claws must be trimmed every few weeks. Clean the borders of the eyes with a soft cloth, remove eye boogers and take care of any possible eye discharge.  Use a different cloth for each eye. Ears need to be checked once a week. If they look dirty, wipe them with cotton wool or a soft, damp cloth moistened with a mixture of apple cider vinegar and lukewarm water in the 50:50 ratio.   The correct choice of food and quantity are a prerequisite for good development in the first two years of age. It is best to consult your breeder about feeding to ensure optimum meals for your kitten. Clean the cat’s toilet regularly.  Regularly remove internal and external parasites, and regularly vaccinate the cat. It is advisable to carry out a preventive examination once a year with the selected veterinarian.  Indoor cats with no exits are much more protected from diseases than those that live outdoors which are also more exposed to other risk factors such as cars, dog attacks and other cats, etc. If you have the opportunity to build your cat an outer enclosure, where she will be able to play and jump. It is right to take responsibility for the safety and care of your cat.  It is best to devote some time every day to the personal care of our cat, which we adapt to individual cats according to the needs that it has. With proper care and nutrition, you can enjoy the company of this unusual wild cat of great character for a long time.
