Russian Blue personality
The Russian blue has a personality that many would expect from a cat. Silently lurking, a little shy, with a tendency to ignore strangers as if it is a superior being with no need for humans.
The latter might be true, but it has become accustomed to a life of luxury which is hard to maintain without the help of a human.
This probably is why the Russian Blue, despite its hatred for the general public, still decides to choose one human as its favourite.
However, the owner of a Russian Blue might see it differently. The breed usually forms affectionate bonds with its chosen human, who’s the only person who gets to see the loving and caring cat it can be.
The Russian Blue is a cautious cat with a low volume a rare need to vocalise. It will sneak around the house to exercise its stalking instincts before running out of the blue to hunt its owner playfully.
When it is not hunting, it is a loving cat that will run to the front door to greet its favourite human at the door after a long day spent alone.
If you know what to look for, the Russian Blue has a distinct look. In many ways, it is similar to the British Shorthair and Chartreuse, as they have the same colour and even share a peculiar Mona Lisa-like smile with the Chartreuse. Though, the facial structure of the Russian Blue is slenderer and got distinctive cheekbones and green oval eyes.
At first glance, a stranger to the Russian Blue might think it looks like a friendly cat but will shortly realise that it is not interested in associating with plebs from outside the household.
When its owners have guests over, it will quietly retreat into a quiet corner of the house, where it will lay in silence until the guests leave.
The Russian Blue is, despite everything, a social creature that does require some loving. Its favourite human is the preferred candidate, but if it shares a house with several people, the Russian Blue will also grant other humans within the household the honour of petting it.
Russian Blue aesthetics and maintenance
The Russian Blue has a fairly descriptive name to the way it looks. It is a Russian breed and there is only one accepted colour for its breed: the silver/grey known as blue in the world of cat fanciers.
The fur coat is double-layered, short-haired and has a silky touch. It does not require a lot of maintenance and is not too allergenic as it does not shed a lot, nor does it produce a lot of glycoproteins, which are the real cause for allergenic reactions.
Even though grooming isn’t required to do often, the owner should do it regularly, so the cat sees it as a part of its routine. The breed does not like changes in its schedule and will therefore cooperate more willingly if done regularly.
The facial structure has a triangular shape. The ears point Outwards, it has oval green eyes, a slender jaw and distinctive cheekbones comparable to Putin himself.
The Russian Blue isn't too fond of children and other pets
The Russian Blue can be a bit of a recluse that does enjoy the quiet calm life. If there are children and pets in the household, it will expect respect and prefer it if the other pets have a naturally calm matter too.
