Russian Blue
Facts & Advice

A playful yet quiet breed who always wears a smile

The Russian Blue is a smart cat, elegant and slender with a velvety soft blue coat and green eyes. It has pointed ears, prominent whisker pads and a slightly upturned mouth, which gives the impression that it's smiling. The breed is agile and playful, yet also quiet, shy and undemanding. Russian Blues make good pets for both elderly owners and families, as long as the home environment isn't too noisy and chaotic.
To ensure your Russian Blue cat is protected in the case of an emergency, take a look at our cat insurance policies.

Vital Stats

Coat: Short-haired and double-coated, with a dense undercoat that stands away from the body, so the overall appearance and feel is soft and sleek. Little grooming is required.
Life span: Around 15 years is usual for this breed.
