The Ultimate Russian Guide

About Russian

The Russian cat, often referred to as the Russian Blue due to its stunning silver-blue coat, is an elegant and graceful breed with a rich history. Their mesmerising green eyes and fine short hair make them stand out among other feline breeds.

The Russian Cat has a short, dense coat that doesn’t mat easily.

Origins

The Russian Cat’s origins can be traced back to the northern parts of Russia, particularly around the port of Arkhangelsk, also known as Archangel. The cold and harsh climate of this region may be responsible for the breed’s plush double coat, which provides insulation. Over time, the Russian was crossbred with other cat breeds to refine specific characteristics. For example, in post-war Europe, due to the devastation of World War II and the threat of the breed’s extinction, breeders had to resort to crossbreeding with the Siamese and other breeds to ensure the Russian’s survival. This crossbreeding led to the development of some features seen today, like the cat’s signature green eyes.

Key Characteristics Of Russians

Are Russians Family-Friendly?

Yes. The Russian Cat is suitable for families, singles, and the elderly. They get along well with children and other pets, especially when introduced at a young age. However, their reserved nature means they may be overwhelmed by loud noises or overly energetic environments.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Russians may suffer from:

Bladder stones

Obesity

Dental Problems

Nature / Temperament

Affectionate, Intelligent, Loyal, Playful, Reserved

Suitable Environment

Russian Cats thrive in both apartments and houses as long as they have enough space to play and retreat. They prefer quiet environments and should always be kept indoors to protect them from various outdoor threats.

Other Considerations

  • Russian Cats were brought to Europe by sailors in the 1860s.
  • This breed nearly became extinct during World War II. However, dedicated breeders in Scandinavia and England kept the breed alive by crossbreeding with other cats.
  • Though no cat can be completely hypoallergenic, the Russian produces fewer allergenic proteins, making them a better choice for allergy sufferers.

How can I take good care of my Russian?

Nutrition

It’s essential to feed your Russian Cat a balanced diet to prevent obesity. High-quality cat food, whether wet or dry, should be the primary diet. Occasional treats are fine, but moderation is key.

Grooming

Weekly brushing is sufficient to remove dead hairs and distribute natural oils. Use a soft-bristle brush to keep their coat shiny and healthy. Start grooming routines when they are young to get them accustomed.

Exercise

Daily play sessions are necessary. While they might not be hyperactive, their playful nature means they love to chase and pounce.

Training

Russian Cats are intelligent and can be trained with patience and positive reinforcement. Litter box training is typically easy with this breed.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

While some may enjoy sitting on laps, others might prefer to sit beside you. They love affection but on their own terms.
