The difference between English short and Chartres is relatively small, in contrast, the difference between Russian Blue is very obvious. Cat breeds are mainly identified by facial skeleton and hair color. The three kinds of fur colors are blue short hair, so no matter the fur color.
If you only like the blue appearance of the cat, then adopting a blue domestic cat will be a very good choice. Adoption instead of purchasing is a proposal worth considering from all aspects.

Blue cat’s fur is a rare gray blue, shining in the sun with the same silver gray luster as mink. Love to be alone, if the owner is too friendly or full of protective desire to it, it will cause pressure and be alienated by it.

Russian blue cat is a naturally occurring cat species, originated from the Russian port of Arkhangelsk (also known as “Blue Angel” port), so the fur color of Russian blue cat is also known as “angel blue”. There is evidence that this kind of cat does originate from Russia, because the same kind of cat has been found in the cold zone of Russia. Therefore, Russian blue cats are also known as “the nobility of short hair species” and “winter elves”
It is said that there is a beautiful and evil witch living in seclusion in taigarin, Siberia, Russia. Anyone who sees her true face will be turned into an animal.
But in the end, she was punished. In a contest with a smart hunter, she turned herself into a blue cat by careless magic. At the end of the 19th century, the youngest princess of Russia’s last dynasty received a mysterious birthday gift – Russian Blue Cat, whose silver sign on its neck said “to save you”. Soon after the October Revolution broke out, the Tsar’s family was executed in secret. Only the youngest princess disappeared mysteriously with her blue cat in that disaster.
The Russian blue cat came out of Russia in the 19th century. It is said that in 1860’s, Russian blue cat was brought to England and Northern Europe by sailors from the akangel islands. In 1875, it was registered as akangel for the first time in the Crystal Palace of England. It was not until 1912 that the Russian blue cat was given a formal grade distinction when compared with other breeds, such as the British blue cat, the French sartrow cat and the Thai krat cat.
Russian blue cat had three different names: achaenge blue cat and Maltese cat. It was not until the 1940s that the current name was given.
