PCT Inc. Cats & kittens are purpose-bred traditional Siberian cats. Kittens are currently graciously donated to Veterans program by PCT Founder/President Mrs Christelle Harris of Taigamoon Siberian Cattery. To find out more on what is "Purpose Breeding and why do we use it?", please visit our Purpose Breeding page. The Siberian Cat is a very loving cat that many allergic people can have in their homes. Traditional Siberian Cats are rare and hard to find in USA and abroad. There is also very limited NEM-free Siberian Pedigreed lines remaining in Russia, homeland of the Siberian cats. Neva Masquerade and mixes are common since their huge popularity and are easier to acquire. In variety of colors the mixes of the two is sadly today lucrative practice in many registered catteries and nurseries around the world. PCT Inc Sanctuary project aims to protect the traditional Siberian Forest Cat blood lines.
We strongly advocate to keep our breeding stock genetically sound, healthy and free of NEM presence/mixes in their pedigrees. We do this for many reasons the first one is to preserve the true Siberian temperament. Secondly their health and finally hypoallergenic properties. Traditional Siberian cats do not shed excessively all year long, rather the Neva Masquerade do because of their unknown heritage and mixes of other breeds such as Birman, Persian, Siamese, Balinese ect. Siberian Cats of today are getting mixed indiscriminately resulting in serious veterinary cost, health issues, unstable temperament and coat problems are left to the unsuspicious buyers. We at PCT are committed to preserve, protect and offer sanctuary to the Traditional Siberian cats.
