How did you decide to have a Siberian cat and why?
I already have some Ragdolls, but they have a lot health issues. When one of my Ragdolls died at the age of six after kidney problems I decided I wanted a healthier breed which is not popular. And I loved what I read about their character and they are gorgeous.

What is your kitty’s favorite food? Any recommendations on food for other Siberian cat owners?
Well, Sepp loved all kinds of food. I prefer grain free food for him. Sepp’s favorite snacks are one day chicks.

It is such a wonderful breed! They are so friendly to humans and other animals.
