Russian Blues have a history in Britain since around 1860. They are believed to have originated from the Archengel Isles in Northern Russian and were brought to England on ships. As far back as 1875 a Russian blue was exhibited at Londons Crystal palace and pictures of Russian Blue called Bayard were published in the The book of the cat in 1903. For more than 100 years the breed has been developed and there are now a number of cat bodies that register Russian Blues, including GCCF, TICA and Fifi.
Russian blues have a dense soft double coat, green eyes and a regal appearance. They are sweet-tempered, intelligent and loyal cats. Our girl, Luna, has settled in very well and is a great family pet.
