A small loving home based breeder of beautiful healthy hypoallergenic
Siberian Forest Cats since 2011.
We are a small home based breeder of Siberian Forest Cats located near the Cincinnati, Ohio area in Northern Kentucky. Kittens are raised “under-foot” in a smoke free environment with 3 active children, including a special needs child with Down Syndrome. They are well socialized with a variety of family members and dogs. We do not believe in general caging of our cats and they are all treated as loving pets and not typical breeder cats. We have found a deep love for this very unique breed of cat and wish to share the joy of being a Siberian Forest Cat owner with others.
We only breed the Siberian Forest Cat bloodlines and are committed to preserving the integrity of the breed and breed standards.
We are a small business and we are registered with the IRS and Kentucky Revenue Service so we must charge a 6% sales tax on our kittens/cats. We never "ship" kittens and only will provide transportation via a hand carrier who is an authorized agent of Cold Spring Siberians, so there are no sight unseen internet sales.
We are also registered with both the CFA (The Cat Fanciers Association) and TICA (The International Cat Association) as catteries and follow both organizations breeder code of ethics.
The Siberian Breed
The Siberian Forest cat is a large, natural, healthy, semi long hair breed from Russia. They are slow maturing and are not considered full grown until they reach 5 years of age. Siberians have only been imported into the United States since 1990. They are commonly referred to as “dog-like” in personality. Siberians are very intelligent and playful. Some of them have a love of water. The Siberian Forest Cat is a very loyal, social and affectionate pet and does better in homes that have plenty of time to spend with them or with a home that has two Siberians.
The Siberian Forest Cat breed is hypoallergenic.
Siberians also are hypoallergenic (low allergen producing). Our family has several people with cat allergies (myself included) and we are able to survive with a bunch of big, beautiful Siberians in the home. I suffer from asthma induced allergies and can usually walk into a home with a cat and start wheezing right away. I do not have these allergy issues with the Siberian Forest Cat breed. This is also the case with my daughter and other family members who suffer from allergies.
There is research on why they can be tolerated by most allergy sufferers. Studies point to there being a low FEL-D1 protein in the cats saliva. When they clean themselves, it is deposited on the fur and the allergen flakes off and becomes airborn, triggering the cat allergy symptoms. The levels of the FEL-D1 protein can vary in the Siberian breed but are usually considered to be much less than in other breeds. The term hypoallergenic means "causes less allergic response."
Multiple studies show that neutering/spaying sharply reduces the FEL-D1 levels and allergic reactions. The allergen is hormonally affected and intact males produce the highest levels of the allergen. The allergen levels drop sharply in both males and females after neutering. It is one of the reasons we encourage early neutering/spaying with our kittens if you have allergies.
If you are interested in a Cold Spring Siberian Forest Cat, consider doing an allergy testing with the cats and evaluate how your allergy symptoms around them.
We use Life’s Abundance Kitten/Cat food for our Siberians and highly recommend our kittens and cats to continue using this high quality food.

When you pick out a breeder to buy your Siberian Forest cat from, get to know them and ask lots of questions. You are adding a new member to your family.
How your little "fur baby" starts out its life is very important.
Make sure your new kitten comes from good strong healthy bloodlines and can be registered both with TICA and CFA.
If there is someone selling a Siberian for a much lower price than the average market price, then be wary. There are some unethical breeders who do not breed to high standards and who are also passing off mixed blood cats as full blood Siberians.
Ethical breeders do not make a lot of money on kittens.
There is a lot of expense in high quality food, veterinary care, testing and quality bloodlines… it is a labor of love and not profit.
