Russian Blue: The Archangel Cat

The Russian Blue CatThe Russian Blue, sometimes called the Archangel cat, is believed to have come from the Archangel Isles in Russia. The Russian Blue is a short haired medium sized cat weighing 8-12 pounds. They’re prized for their soft blue fur which is tipped with silver and gives them a shimmering appearance in the sunlight. They have thin, lithe, well muscled bodies that give them a regal appearance. Their wedge shaped heads have large pointed ears and round green eyes.

The Russian Blue is a quiet and not particularly demanding cat, except when it comes to the litter box which they expect to be very clean. They form strong bonds with their families, but are shy around strangers. Gentle and affectionate, they’re good with children of all ages, other cats, and dogs. They are known to sense emotions and react to them. You may find your Russian Blue trying to cheer you up when you’re feeling down. They’re very intelligent cats that can figure things out, such as how to use door handles. They love to play with a variety of toys and can be taught to play fetch.

Russian Blues are an excellent cat for busy families as they are perfectly fine being left alone for long periods of time. They don’t require much special care. Their short hair requires little grooming and they are not prone to any illnesses or genetic problems. About the only thing they ask of you is to keep the litter box clean, if you don’t they’ll figure out somewhere else to go!
