As normally happens with many different cat breeds, the origins of Russian blue cats are rather blurry and unclear, often embellished with more legends than facts.
Among the latter, even goes so far as to say these cats were the widely used pets of Russian Czars prior to the Russian revolution. A state version, though, goes that they originated around the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in the uk inside the 1860s where these were exhibited on the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, often known as Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught on in the UK and Scandinavia where it turned out renamed Russian blue and actively bred until The second world war. We were holding officially declared a new breed in 1912 from the Cat Fancy Society, to prevent confusion with British Blue cats.
In the 1940s on, these folks were also crossed with Siamese cats once in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a new breed is made. These cats are generally known as Modern Russian Blue cats.
Regarding their appearance, Russian Blue cats are well-built and fine-boned with graceful long limbs.
Their coat is short-specially suitable if you are allergic-and smooth. Their own colour is due to the fact both blueish grey in addition to silver-tipped hairs give them an overall lustrous look. What actually makes them so attractive and eye-catching is 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 using the sole exception of the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) that also accepts black, and white Russian blue cats as such.
