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

One of the latter, even goes as far as to get these cats were the favourite pets of Russian Czars prior to the Russian revolution. The official version, though, goes that they originated for the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in the uk in the 1860s where these were exhibited at the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, also referred to as Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught for in the UK and Scandinavia where it absolutely was renamed Russian blue and actively bred until The second world war. These folks were officially declared a fresh breed in 1912 through the Cat Fancy Society, to stop confusion with British Blue cats.

From the 1940s on, they were also crossed with Siamese cats and once in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a whole new breed was developed. These cats are now called Modern Russian Blue cats.

Physical description:

Regarding 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 unique colour is a result of the reality that both blueish grey in addition to silver-tipped hairs provide them with a general lustrous look. What actually brings about so attractive and eye-catching may be the contrast between their particular glossy coat in addition to 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 as a result.
