Russian Blue Cat Breeders
If you’d love to own a cat that is aristocratic in its bearing, looks absolutely magnificent, and that is devoted to you, you cannot go past the Russian Blue. Here’s what you need to know.
Characteristics of the Russian Blue
Russian Blues in Australia are medium sized cats that have large ears set verticle to the head that are finely covered in fur which gives the appearance of being translucent. They have a very dignified, aristocratic appearance. The Russian Blue has a thick, double coat that is a gorgeous silvery blue in colour, hence the name. The coat feels very plush and silky. As well, they have beautiful emerald green eyes with prominent whisker pads, and their nose leather and paw pads are soft and a lovely lilac/grey colour.
The Russian Blue Temperament
While they may seem aloof at first, the Russian Blue is simply a cat that takes a little while to assess a situation. The Russian Blue actually has a very affectionate temperament and they are highly devoted to their owners. They like nothing better than to follow you around and to take a look at what you are doing, and sometimes even join in. This is because they are intelligent and playful and like to feel as though they are part of the family. The Russian Blue is a very quiet and soft cat, and it is rare that you will hear them speak. While they are playful, they are not highly active, so they suit indoor life well.
Caring for a Russian Blue
The Russian Blue is one of the easiest cats to care for as they are so low maintenance and they require nothing special in the way of their diet. All you have to do in the way of grooming is to brush them occasionally but some say that the coat becomes more radiant the less it is brushed! The Russian Blue will live for 13-15 years on average but they can live for longer.
Who is the Russian Blue Suited To?
The Russian Blue is suited to both families and quieter households and they are perfectly happy to live their life indoors as they are not an overly active breed. The good news is that they are content with their own company while you are out, so you don’t have to get them a cat companion.
