As normally happens with a lot of cat breeds, the origins of Russian blue cats are rather blurry and unclear, often embellished with an increase of legends than facts.
One of several latter, even goes so far as to say these cats were the widely accepted pets of Russian Czars prior to Russian revolution. The official version, though, goes that they can 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, also called Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught for both in england and Scandinavia where it had been renamed Russian blue and actively bred until The second world war. They were officially declared a brand new breed in 1912 with the Cat Fancy Society, in order to avoid confusion with British Blue cats.
From the 1940s on, we were holding also crossed with Siamese cats and when in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a whole new breed was developed. These cats are now generally known as Modern Russian Blue cats.
Relating to looks, Russian Blue cats are well-built and fine-boned with graceful long limbs.
Their coat is short-specially suitable in case you are allergic-and smooth. Their own colour is because of the reality that both blueish grey in addition to silver-tipped hairs let them have a total lustrous look. What actually ensures they are so attractive and eye-catching is the contrast between their own glossy coat as well as 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 with the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) that also accepts black, and white Russian blue cats therefore.
