Lundberg Siberians

This lovely red Siberian joined us outside for a sunny afternoon.  His leash is hidden by leaves, and tied to the maple.  Tolya Taigovich was our first Siberian, and a wonderful companion.  Photo: Meredith Lundberg © 2005     

We are a small cooperative of Siberian hobby breeders. Kittens are raised one litter at a time, in the home and underfoot.  They roam the house as members of the family, with lots of love and attention. Crumpled pieces of paper and cat toys are often scattered around the floor, so we check shoes for fuzzy mice before putting them on.  Siberians have nice personalities, lovely quiet voices, and make wonderful companions. 

Our website is updated on a regular basis.  When kittens are available, we post a notice on our Kitten page.  Contact information and our application:

Note: We are in process of updating our website to HTML5.  This will allow online editing, faster loading of the website, and better format for phones.  Over the next few months, updates to our kittens page will be less frequent.  The website format will change considerably after March 2023.

Allergy Discussion

Siberians are often called “Hypoallergenic”, but this is misleading.  Some Siberians have low levels of Fel d 1 allergen, but cat allergies are complex.  Many of our kittens live in homes with mild to very severe cat allergies. Our Allergies Page has more information. 

Cat allergies begins to show when kittens are 11-12 weeks old and levels increase for several months.  In households with allergies, kitten sales should never begin until kittens are 12 weeks old.

Over the last twenty years we standardized tests to measure Fel-d1 allergens in saliva. We have results from over 400 Siberian kittens.  Half of Siberians tested had allergen levels lower than normal cats.  Roughly 15% of Siberians are suitable for homes with severe cat allergies.  

Our Cat Allergy Chart© help understand severity of cat allergy.  Compare your reaction to   holding a normal cat to the symptoms below to see how severe your allergies are.

Allergen               Allergic Reaction by Severity                  © 2005

Untested                 Allergen levels may vary from very low to normal (high).
Normal                   High allergen levels, not for homes with cat allergies
Medium Low         Mild eye irritation and stuffy nose from cat allergies
Low                         Runny nose, severe eye irritation, mild coughing
Very Low               Itchy skin, light sneezing, severe runny nose, mild asthma
Extremely Low     Hives, swelling, sneezing, breathing difficulties, asthma

We maintain two related websites.

Kitten Testing sells allergen kits to other Siberian breeders.  We have information on testing and a current list of breeders in the US & Canada licensed to test kittens.

Siberian Research a non-profit created to study Siberian diseases and allergen levels.  We maintain the website to increase awareness of health issues that affect Siberians, but have not updated the information in some time.
