The Neva Masquerade originated in Russia in the 1980s by crossing Siamese and Siberian cats.
They have a distinctive "masked" facial pattern with bright blue eyes and a long, silky pointed coat.
Neva Masquerades are intelligent, active, and affectionate. They bond closely with their owners.
There are less than 200 Neva Masquerades registered worldwide, making them a very rare breed.
They are playful, loyal cats that get along well with respectful children and other pets.
Despite their long fur, Neva Masquerades produce low amounts of Fel D1 protein, making them hypoallergenic.
Their silky coat requires regular grooming to prevent mats and tangles.
