The Russian Blue cat hesitates to approach a stranger, but once he has bonded with a human, he becomes a loyal, home-loving pet who adores that person.
Short, dense coat
Silver-tipped blue fur
Large green eyes
The breed exhibits excellent health, thanks in part to its ancestry. The breed, which evolved naturally, adapted to the bitter cold of the Russian winter and consequently suffers from few of the respiratory ailments that can strike other breeds. The first Russian blues in the West were imported by sailors, no doubt because of the cats' beauty; the breed has undergone few if any changes and looks identical to blues of centuries past.
The distinctive blue colouring is a mutation of black. Because the breed evolved in such a cold climate, it has retained its double coat, which offers a couple of benefits that set blues apart from most other breeds: they don't shed, and they don't have hairballs. The former makes them a good choice for people who may have allergies to other breeds.
You should never brush a Russian blue's hair -- you'll brush out the silver tipping. Instead, comb it occasionally, but it actually requires very little care on your part.
Tips on Choosing and Care
Choose a reputable breeder, and find out the kitten's parentage.
Check the kitten to be sure he is well proportioned.
Check the condition of his coat; look for telltale signs of fleas.
He should have pink, healthy-looking gums and mouth.
Check his ears for signs of mites.
Make sure he has clear, bright eyes with no signs of discharge.
