Country of Origin:



While the exact origins of this breed remain shrouded in mystery, it's believed that the Russian Blue is a naturally occurring breed from northern Russia's Archangel Isles. It's also believed that this breed arrived in Britain during the late nineteenth century.


Additional names include Archangel Blue, Archangel Cat, Multese, Multese Blue, Chartreuse Blue, and Foreign Blue.


Russian Blues have a tendency to be shy and flighty. However, they still form strong bonds with their owners. These cats generally get along well with both children and other pets.



Due to their intelligence, Russian Blues can be quite easily trained to do tricks.


Russian Blues are athletic and like to play, but they're also good at entertaining themselves for hours on end.


Since these cats can be quite shy, they're best suited for quiet, calm households. Russian Blues are loving and affectionate companions, and they require only minimal grooming. Since this breed has a tendency to overeat, it's often a good idea to limit the availability of food for adult Russian Blues.
