|Welcome to NevaMasKaRan. We are located in Quakertown, Pennsylvania and sell our
domestic siberian cats directly to pet owners ONLY. Cat registries recognize the
Color Point Siberian AKA Neva Masquerade as a color variation of the Siberian. The
Siberian cat is known to have lower Feld-1 levels than a regular domesticated cat.
The Neva Masquerade was given a festive name due to their more decorative coats.
The Neva originates in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) and along the Neva River.
When other cats breeds were imported to this area the Siberian was mixed with
pointed cats such as Balinese, Siamese, Persians, Himalayans, etc., this created
offspring with a – fluffy coat with pointed color. Some claim this mix was natural, while
others claim intentional.
The ideal Neva Masquerade is a medium sized, robust, strong, luxuriously medium to
long haired cat, originating along the Neva River, thus their name. They are believed
to be a mixed breed based upon Siberian, Persian and Siamese bloodlines. Mature
cats are powerfully built with an overall appearance of strength, force, and alertness.
Powerful hind legs are slightly longer than the front. They possess a natural, loving
facial expression. Their all weather coat is dense and full and varies in length and
density of undercoat with the seasons. The Neva Masquerade originally endured the
harsh, cold climate of its native Russia but it has since easily adapted to varied
environments. It can take 5 years for an adult cat to attain full size and splendor so
allowance must be made when judging kittens and young cats. Allowance must be
made for a some times significant, gender based, difference in size. Mature males
may have larger and broader heads than females.
