Russian Blue The name of the breed suggests its colour and origin: the breed comes from Archangel in Northern Russia and the thick short coat reveals that the Russian Blue is used to cold climate. The Russian Blue first arrived to Britain in 1860 as a ship’s cat. The other theory is that it was bread on the Russian court and in addition to his coat; his blood is blue as well. The colour of the coat was originally bright blue, but later breed crossings resulted in today’s colour. The Russian Blue’s development resulted in several types, but in the 1960s the original appearance was brought back and accepted as the breed standard. One of the characteristics is a thick double coat with, brighter inside and plush with silver-tipped hairs outside, making it seem to glisten in the sun. The Russian Blue loves to sleep in the sun and playing with the rays of sunlight. His thick coat is short and easy to groom. There is almost no shedding, so it is enough to comb the Russian Blue’s coat once a week. His beautiful eyes are bright green. The Russian Blue loves to play and enjoy chasing teasers. These cats are loyal and devoted, love to follow family members around the house, affectionate but careful with strangers. He doesn’t like change and always has a favourite spot. He has a sweet and intelligent personality and loves to play and master tricks and skills - he will learn how to open doors, turn on the light, fetch toys and similar. He will not mind wearing a collar and walking on a leash, which is why he is called the “Doberman Pinscher of cats”. His life span is 15 to 18 years, and the Russian Blue often lives even up to 20. The Russian Blue rarely causes an allergic reaction and that makes him a popular house pet.
