A lot of years we presented on this site a list of Neva Masquarade breeders worldwide.
Unfortunately we got no new entries for the breedbook in the last time, so we decided to cancel this site.

Siberian Cat Neva Masquerade
The Neva Masquerade as well as her
"sister" the Siberian cat has its
origin in Russia. The Neva cat is only known in Middle Europe since the
fall of the "Iron Curtain" and is therefore still quite unknown over
Perhaps this is an advantage because due to the short time of breeding
history the cats are still very healthy and without optical extremes.
As the Neva Masquerade forms a pedigree together with the Siberian
(which is available in all "normal" fur colors) they are mating
Therefore, it is possible that although a pure Siberian mating is done
the litter can contain Nevas as well as Siberians, presumed that both
animals are point carriers.
Lovers of "natural" breeds have
thus the unique chance to unite a masque
cat with a forest cat. Being a masque cat all Nevas have blue eyes and a

humans and other animals. They absolutely love to cuddle and are gentle
and joyful animals who sometimes love to make nonsense.
From time to time the Neva starts
