As normally happens with many different cat breeds, the origins of Russian blue cats are rather blurry and unclear, often embellished with increased legends than facts.

One of the latter, even goes so far as to say these cats were the widely accepted pets of Russian Czars before the Russian revolution. The state version, though, goes which they originated for the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in great britain from the 1860s where these were exhibited with the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, often known as Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught on in the united kingdom and Scandinavia where it turned out renamed Russian blue and actively bred until The second world war. These were officially declared a new breed in 1912 through the Cat Fancy Society, to prevent confusion with British Blue cats.

In the 1940s on, we were holding also crossed with Siamese cats and once in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a brand new breed was made. These cats are actually referred to as Modern Russian Blue cats.

Physical description:

With regards to their physical aspect, Russian Blue cats are well-built and fine-boned with graceful long limbs.

Their coat is short-specially suitable if you’re allergic-and smooth. Their own colour is because of the fact that both blueish grey and also silver-tipped hairs let them have an overall lustrous look. What actually ensures they are so attractive and eye-catching is the contrast between their particular glossy coat as well as their striking yellowish green eyes.

Naturally enough, only Russian blue cats with blueish grey coats are officially considered such by most Cat Societies world-wide with all the sole exception in the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) which accepts black, and white Russian blue cats consequently.
