As normally happens with many cat breeds, the origins of Russian blue cats are rather blurry and unclear, often embellished with an increase of legends than facts.
One of many latter, even goes so far as to get these cats were the widely accepted pets of Russian Czars ahead of the Russian revolution. The official version, though, goes that they can originated for the Archangel Isles in Russia and were eventually introduced in great britan in the 1860s where these were exhibited with the Crystal Palace as Archangel cats, also referred to as Spanish blue or foreign blue. The then so-called Archangel cat soon caught for in britain and Scandinavia where it absolutely was renamed Russian blue and actively bred until World War II. They were officially declared a new breed in 1912 by the Cat Fancy Society, in order to avoid confusion with British Blue cats.
In the 1940s on, these folks were also crossed with Siamese cats as soon as in USA, These blue coloured cats were also developed until a fresh breed was made. These cats are now called Modern Russian Blue cats.
Regarding their 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 caused by the truth that both blueish grey as well as silver-tipped hairs provide them with a standard lustrous look. What actually ensures they are so attractive and eye-catching is the contrast between their own 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 all the sole exception in the Australian Cat Federation (ACF) which accepts black, and white Russian blue cats therefore.
