          The beautiful Russian Blue breed has been around for a very long time. This naturally-occurring breed originated in Russia in the 1860’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.

          The Russian Blue has a beautiful lustrous blue coat that looks as though it has been dipped in silver. Not only are the Russia Blue Breed exceptional to look at, but they are extremely intelligent and have a wonderful disposition. Often these kitties are very in tune with the moods of their favorite humans, and can sense how we are feeling, giving us that extra attention when we may be a little down.

          The Russian Blue is very devoted to their loved ones and often shy around strangers. They will often run to hide when you get out the vacuum!  The Russian Blue love to fetch balls, love to lay in window and watch the birds, and require minimal grooming. They are a wonderful breed to have in any home!

 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.
