Cat Adoption / September 2, 2022

Russian Blues are gentle, genteel cats, and are usually reserved, or absent, when strangers are around. When they're with their own beloved humans, however, they are affectionate and playful. Russian Blues are active but not annoyingly so. They like nothing better than to spend time retrieving a favorite toy or chasing sunbeams. They willingly entertain themselves, but prefer that their favorite humans join in the fun. When you're home, they follow you around, unobtrusive but ever-present companions. The slight upturn to the corners of the mouth makes most Russian Blues appear to be forever smiling.

Russian Blues like their usual routine and dislike environmental changes more than the average cat. They particularly dislike changes to their dinner schedule. They are also fastidious about their litter boxes and will complain if they're not spic and span.

The members of this breed are polite, quiet, and well-behaved. It is easy to train them to stay off counters and out of off-limit areas with a simple 'No', but Russian Blues seem to think politeness should go both ways and take offense at being made to look silly. You can trust them to know when you're laughing at them and they won't soon forget it either.

Russian Blue Cat Breed Traits

This breed's most distinctive feature, its beautiful double coat, is silky, plush, and so dense it stands out from the body. You can literally draw pictures in the fur with your fingers and the patterns will remain until you smooth them over or until your feline friend tires of the game and walks off. The coat's guard hairs bear silver tipping that reflects light, giving the coat a silver sheen. Combined with the vivid green eyes, the Russian Blue is a strikingly beautiful breed. Even though it's short, the dense double coat does require some grooming to keep the coat looking its best.

Although blue is the only color accepted by the North American registries, in Australia, New Zealand, and England, other colors are recognized.

Interested in the history of the Russian Blue cat breed?

The most commonly held theory regarding this breed's origin is that Russian Blues were brought to Great Britain in 1860 by British sailors from the White Sea port town of Archangel (Arkhangelsk) in northern Russia. Whether this story is true, and if true, whether the cats really originated in that area, is anyone's guess. Their thick coats give credence to the theory that they developed in a cold climate, and, according to accounts, blue shorthairs still exist in Russia.

The Russian Blue is not known to be related to the other three short haired solid blue breeds: Thailand's Korat, France's Chartreux, and Britain's British Blue (now called the British Shorthair). The four breeds have distinct differences in coat, type, and personality, although the Korat, Chartreux, and Russian Blue share a similar silver-blue sheen. Since all four of these breeds have been around for so long that their ancestries are shrouded in legend and conjecture, a common origin is certainly possible.

In 1871 a Russian Blue was shown at the first cat show at the Crystal Palace in London, under the name Archangel Cat. At this point, Russian Blues were short haired, solid blue felines with foreign body types. From photos and published sources of the time the original coat was thick, dense, glossy, and colored a light silver-blue.

Russian Blues competed in the same class with all other short haired blues, despite obvious differences in type. Since the round-headed, cobby British Blues were favored in the show halls, the svelte Russian Blues rarely won. Finally, the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy acknowledged the breed and in 1912 the Russian Blue was granted a class of its own. The breed then made progress until World War II when it almost became extinct, as did many other breeds.
