As normally happens with many cat breeds, the origins of Russian blue cats are rather blurry and unclear, often embellished with an increase of legends than facts.
One of many latter, even goes as far as to say these cats were the favourite pets of Russian Czars ahead of the Russian revolution. A state version, though, goes they originated around the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in great britan from the 1860s where these folks were exhibited in the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, also called Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught on in the UK and Scandinavia where it had been renamed Russian blue and actively bred until World War II. We were holding officially declared a new breed in 1912 through the Cat Fancy Society, in order to avoid confusion with British Blue cats.
Through the 1940s on, these were also crossed with Siamese cats as soon as in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a whole new breed was made. These cats are now referred to as Modern Russian Blue cats.
Relating to 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 own personal colour is caused by the fact that both blueish grey along with silver-tipped hairs provide them with a total lustrous look. What actually makes them so attractive and eye-catching will be the contrast between their own personal glossy coat and 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 together with the sole exception in the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) which also accepts black, and white Russian blue cats as such.
