Neva Masquerade Cat Breeders


“Neva-Masquerade” is the Traditional Colorpoint Siberian Forest Cat. Given a festive name due to the 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, why others claim intentional.

The ideal Traditional 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 Traditional Neva Masquerade originally endured the harsh, cold climate of its native Russia. 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. Type takes presidence over size and color


No known genetic defects.


Neva Masquerade (NEM) är en syskonras till den Sibiriska katten. I Norge är den preliminärt godkänd från 2009 [1]. Rasstandarden är den samma som hos Sibirisk katt förutom att Neva Masquerade är en maskad katt d.v.s. den har en mask i ansiktet samt att benen och svansen har en annan färg/nyans än kroppen. Neva Masquerade har blå ögon. Första registrerade svenskfödda Nevan föddes på katteri S*Aleigas i Nälden, Jämtlands län.

En maskert Siberian er søsken rasen Neva Masquerade som alltid blåøyd og "maskert",

 dvs. ansikt, ører, ben og hale er en mørkere farge. Kroppsfarge er generelt lys.


Huvud: Huvudet är kilformat och mjukt rundat. Det har välutvecklade, höga kindben och nosen är bred och medellång.
Öron: Medelstora med rundade öronspetsar, tofsar inuti och lodjurstofsar på dem.
Ögonen: Stora, sitter brett isär och ovala
Ögonfärg: Blå
Kropp: Kraftig och muskulös
Benen: Kraftig benstomme, medelhöga och starka
Tassarna: Stora runda tassar med tofsar mellan tårna
Svansen: Lång, tjock, tät och underullen får inte ligga platt. Hårstråna är kraftiga och får inte hänga ned
Pälsen: Semilång, tät och underullen får inte ligga platt. Pälsen stöter bort vatten och känns lite hård när man rör den. Sommarpälsen är kortare och vinterpälsen har en välutvecklad man och krage.

Rasen har samma standard som Sibirisk katt då de är syskonraser och blev godkända som det 2011, förutom att denna är maskad. Den är väldigt tålig mot kylan på vintern, värmen på sommaren och höststormarna, eftersom deras päls är så skyddande så den inte ens blir blöt i regnet. Men för det så ska man ju självklart inte låta den vara ute hur som helst bara för den är född med de egenskaperna.

Det sägs att vissa allergiker kan tåla rasen, eftersom de saknar proteinet FEL D-1 som orsakar allergi hos många personer. Detta är dock inte vetenskapligt bevisat utan bara erfarenhet hos uppfödare och allergiker.
