To expand upon what Jan has said, PCN's will cross with the Sino-siberians,
as both share a common chromosome count of 40. The resultant offspring are
referred to as Cal-sibes (possibly because Pcn-sibes would be difficult to
pronounce). It is unlikely that a cross between PCN's and standard
Siberians, which have 28 chromosomes (56 if tetraploid) would prove
