As normally happens with a lot of cat breeds, the origins of Russian blue cats are rather blurry and unclear, often embellished with more legends than facts.
Among the latter, even goes as much as to claim these cats were the favourite pets of Russian Czars before the Russian revolution. The state version, though, goes they originated about the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in the uk inside the 1860s where these were exhibited at the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, often known as Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught for in the united kingdom and Scandinavia where it was renamed Russian blue and actively bred until World War II. These were officially declared a fresh breed in 1912 with the Cat Fancy Society, to prevent confusion with British Blue cats.
Through the 1940s on, these were also crossed with Siamese cats and when in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a brand new breed was developed. These cats are now called Modern Russian Blue cats.
Regarding appearance, Russian Blue cats are well-built and fine-boned with graceful long limbs.
Their coat is short-specially suitable if you are allergic-and smooth. Their own colour is due to the reality that both blueish grey as well as silver-tipped hairs provide them with a general lustrous look. What actually ensures they are so attractive and eye-catching may be the contrast between their own glossy coat along with 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 from the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) which accepts black, and white Russian blue cats as a result.
