I will present a special breed of cats: Blue Cat of Russia. The classic personality of a Blue Cat from Russia is something special, unique. It is possible that some non-pedigree cats may have the same character traits.
About the specimens of this breed
Certain requirements imposed on the owner of a Blue cat from Russia. This cat is for connoisseurs. If the requirements met, the cat is a special companion. It has a particular behavior compared to the other breeds. I hope to stay that way. It’s a real cat. She has most of the natural instincts of the felines almost intact.
It’s an intelligent cat. But which cat is not. She is curious, alert, cautious, lively and playful.
It’s a cat for people who indeed love felines. Females are ideal moms, I do not know otherwise cats of race or not. All cats have a special maternal instinct.
It attaches a lot to family members. Instead, he has to give him much attention and love. Must be a friend of the cat chosen. Being vigilant by nature is cautious when a stranger visits the house. She stays hidden until her curiosity conquers. Sometimes they just let go.
If he accepted someone else, he will remember him at the next visit.
Blue Russia is not an insistent or aggressive cat.
It will never need you. You can have full confidence in it.
He instinctively developed “social life”. It depends only on the individual, in part, on the personality of each.
Sometimes they come home with strangers when they are chickens. Sometimes when they are adults.
The origin of the What is definitely known is that in 1912 the first standard appeared for this breed.
Everything about their past circulates all kinds of legends and “versions”. The true origin of Blue Russia will remain a mystery.
One legend says that from the northwest of the Russian Empire, in the middle of the nineteenth century, a feline arrived with commercial ships in Europe. This known as “Archangel cat”, “Maltese”, “Spanish blue,” or “Blue”.
By the 40s the Scandinavians crossed Blue to Russia with Siamese. They have achieved a “diluted” color effect – from black to blue.
In effect, after World War II, the formation of the race we know today begins. The English took care of it and crossed it with Siamese. They introduced a more elegant form, crossing only those with “blue point”.
The quality of the fur preserved like in the times of the empire. It’s extreme velvety.
Eyes, golden or golden, with crossed cats, stabilized in green.
Since 1900, several copies have imported into America. After the Second World War, the followers of these dogs crossed with copies from England and Scandinavia.
Thus, it standardized in the 60s by Russia, as we know it today.
The standard differs from one feline association to another in the sense that the score is different.
I will take into account the FIFe standard.
A harmonious cat
Compared with most non-pedigree cats, Blue from Russia is nobler and more elegant. It is very harmonious. The medium waste has a very beautiful head, high legs and long tail. All this creates a harmonious whole. It has no extremes. A closer look reveals the distinctive, distinctive features.
Blue Russia is a cat with short hair. For this reason, it is sufficient for brushing and caressing. They are also a source of pleasure for the cat. The fur has the appearance and consistency of velvet and silk. When she passes her hand through her fur, she feels soft and a little resilient. At present this seal is almost exterminated precisely because of the coat.
Color is preferred in a darker shade.
The skull is long and flat. The head has the shape of the nail short, unobtrusive. Forehead is long and right. The nose is right. Forms a concave angle with the forehead at eye level. Has strong Barbie and mustache prominent.
The eyes are separated from each other. They are particularly expressive. They are green, big and almond. Sometimes the shape of the eyes appears rather round. The eyes are too small, deep or too close.
The first time we see a Blue from Russia, we notice our eyes. Especially when they are green, according to the standard.
Are large ‘at the base, sharper and positioned vertically on the head. That is, the outer line of the ear must be vertical. It is very important for the ears to have the right width. If they are too narrow, the rabbit ears or the exclamation mark in the crown of the head. Also, your head should be optimal width, because of your ears.
A narrow head would make the ears too close to the base. This is not desirable.
Cat and exhibitions
Personally am against the cat’s presentation at exhibitions. Many years ago I presented two cats at the exhibition. If I knew how much stress it is for the poor cat, I would not have done it.
It is also true for Blue from Russia. Presence in the exhibition involves traveling, sometimes over long distances. You have to sit in a cage, in a huge hall, many cats and strangers.
She has to behave well in the exhibition. She must not look frightened, aggressive, not spit, scream, scratch or bite. It must be kept in mind that the cat will be presented to the jury by the steward and not the master.
It’s no secret that Russian Blue has the reputation of the “inappropriate” breed for exhibitions, especially among breeders of other breeds.
Fortunately, there are specimens that behave well at exhibitions. Cats are unpredictable, so breeders will be challenged by breeding nests according to their behavior.
The best way to find out if a kitten likes exhibitions is to bring him to one. He will take care to give us his opinion.
By its very nature, she is not enthusiastic when it comes to strangers. The thing is more true for Blue from Russia.
Let me take or not a Russian Blue
Blue Russia is a cat for connoisseurs. It’s not a cat for anyone. Must be ready for her devotion. You need to prepared to give him more attention and love. Must be your chosen to friend. If Albania’s need for love and attention satisfied, people are no longer interested.
If you think you can meet the needs of Blue Russia, take it. Otherwise, think of another race.
