As normally happens with lots of cat breeds, the origins of Russian blue cats are rather blurry and unclear, often embellished with additional legends than facts.
One of many latter, even goes as far as to say these cats were the widely used pets of Russian Czars before the Russian revolution. A state version, though, goes they originated around the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in Britain inside the 1860s where these were exhibited with the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, also known as Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught for in britain and Scandinavia where it was renamed Russian blue and actively bred until Wwii. They were officially declared a brand new breed in 1912 from the Cat Fancy Society, to avoid confusion with British Blue cats.
In the 1940s on, these were also crossed with Siamese cats as soon as in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a new breed was developed. These cats are now generally known as Modern Russian Blue cats.
Relating to physical appearance, Russian Blue cats are well-built and fine-boned with graceful long limbs.
Their coat is short-specially suitable should you be allergic-and smooth. Their own personal colour is because of the reality that both blueish grey along with silver-tipped hairs give them a total lustrous look. What actually makes them so attractive and eye-catching could be 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 with the sole exception in the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) that also accepts black, and white Russian blue cats as such.
