The Russian Blue has a reputation as a gentle cat, quiet, a little shy. This cat can have a reserved nature, but he loves to play and loves to jump or climb to high places where he can study people and situations. Guests will not receive your immediate attention and can never see him, unless he decides. For family members, especially his favored person, he is always loyal, following them around the house and even riding on their shoulder. The Russian Blue is a sensitive cat, who doesn’t like to be ignored and will be hurt if he doesn’t get the same amount of affection that he gives. The Russian Blue appreciates a pat on the head, a window from which to watch the birds, and, of course, the comforts of home. Their beautiful faces have an enigmatic smile as they survey their dominion with satisfaction. Sheer elegance combined with intelligence make this breed a winner in the show ring and in the home.
They have a nice particularity, they will talk to you if you talk to them and can develop a large vocabulary. Count on him to be a faithful alarm clock in the morning, not so you don’t miss work but so he doesn’t miss a meal. If you take the time to develop a relationship with a Russian Blue, your reward will be a deep bond with this loving cat.
Coat features are short, silky, dense plush feel and the lack of constant shedding. The coat color is a bright blue, even, and each guard hair appears as if dipped in silver giving the Russian a bright silvery luster and shiny appearance. In contrast to the Blue Coat, the Russian Blue has big eyes, rounded, full set that are vivid green. The shape of the head is a wide, medium wedge with a flat top and straight nose in profile. Big ears are wide at the base. The Russian Blue is a medium-sized cat, fine-boned, long and muscled with firmness. The tail is long but in proportion to the body.
They are also very affectionate, and get along well with kids. The Russian Blue is also accepting of other animals, including dogs, as long as they aren’t chased or menaced by them. Introduce pets slowly and in controlled circumstances to ensure that they learn to get along together.
This breed is fussy about its litter box, and wants it kept very clean. If the box is dirty, a Russian Blue may decide to go elsewhere.The Russian Blue is generally healthy. An owner’s main concern will probably be this cat’s hearty Russian appetite, which can turn him from sleek to stout in no time.
