The beautiful Russian Blue breed has been around for a very long time. This naturally-occurring breed originated in Russia in the1860’s, and is considered a “true cat” by those who appreciate them.They are a medium-sized cat, ranging from 7 to 12 lbs., with a muscular build, and brilliant green, almond-shaped eyes. The Russian Blues are known for their unique, silver-blue coats that have a shimmering appearance. Only weekly grooming is required, and they are very healthy animals that normally live between ten to fifteen years.
A Russian Blue is intelligent, lively, curious and loyal, usually attaching themselves to one or two favorite humans in the family from which they need a lot of love and attention. While non-aggressive and predictable, they can also be cautious and aloof with strangers. A Russian Blue loves to play with toys and even likes to fetch. They are absolutely great with kids , but may not do well in a home with multiple pets and lots of visitors.
