Breed Info


The Russian Blue is a cat breed that comes in colors varying from a light shimmering silver to a darker, slate grey. They develop close bonds with their owners and are sought out as pets due to their personalities, beauty and coat. It is their short, dense coat which has been the hallmark of the Russian breed for more than a century. The dense coat stands out from the body and one can draw patterns in the coat that will stay until one smoothes them out again. They are also considered to be hypoallergenic.


The Russian Blue is a naturally occurring breed that may have originated in the port of Arkhangelsk, Russia.They are also sometimes called Archangel Blues.It is believed that sailors took Russian Blues from the Archangel Isles to Great Britain and Northern Europe in the 1860s. The breed was developed mainly in England and Scandinavia until after World War II. This was done by combining the bloodlines of both the Scandinavian and British Russian Blues. The short hair and slate-gray/blue color is often seen in mixed-breed cats, which can affect breeders and showers due to mislabeling a cat as a Russian Blue.


Russian Blue cats are curious and very smart. They can be shy at first, but they are playful and loving once they feel comfortable with you! While they are happy living with families and especially with other pets, Russian Blues tend to form a deep connection with only one person. Once they bond with someone, they will be very sensitive to their parent’s emotions – if you’re sad, don’t be surprised if your feline friend pats your face to cheer you up.
