Male vs. Female Siberian Cat

By July 29, 2018 August 4th, 2018 Breed Info

As with most animals, there are a few distinct differences between the male and female Siberian cat which are immediately evident even by just looking at a photo comparison. Although both female and male Siberians make for exceptional pets, there may be a few specific traits that affect which you prefer to buy. It’s important to note that the majority of evidence shows that neutering decreases the differences in male and females significantly.

  • Slow to mature (3-5 years)

  • Wider faces
