As normally happens with lots of 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 favored pets of Russian Czars ahead of the Russian revolution. The state version, though, goes they originated for the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in great britan from the 1860s where they were exhibited on the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, also called Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught for in the UK and Scandinavia where it was renamed Russian blue and actively bred until Wwii. We were holding officially declared a brand new breed in 1912 from the Cat Fancy Society, to stop confusion with British Blue cats.
From your 1940s on, they were also crossed with Siamese cats as soon as in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a new breed is made. These cats are now called Modern Russian Blue cats.
Regarding their physical aspect, 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 unique colour is because of the fact that both blueish grey and also silver-tipped hairs let them have a standard lustrous look. What actually ensures they are so attractive and eye-catching may be the contrast between their own personal 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 using the sole exception of the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) this accepts black, and white Russian blue cats as such.
