Russian blue cat has always given people a cold feeling. It has a pair of light green eyes. When you look at it, it is as if you are looking at the Green River in spring, reflecting the green willows. Its expression is always so serious. The hair standing on its eyes is just like his slightly raised eyebrows. It often walks on the grass alone, no matter it is sunny According to, or drizzle, it does not like to say hello to people, meet acquaintances also just slightly raised his head, so it is known as the real aristocrat in the cat.
Corresponding to its coldness, the origin of Russian blue cat is also mysterious. Russian blue cat is a naturally occurring cat species. It was born in the port of Arkhangelsk, which is located near the estuary of the North devina River, and is the capital of Arkhangelsk state. Historically, it is an important port in Russia. After the 18th century, it declined because of the opening of St. Petersburg. In the 19th century, the railway connecting Moscow was completed and became the center of timber export. During the two world wars, it was the Russian port where allied goods entered. Therefore, the fur color of Russian Blue Cats 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”. The Russian blue cat came out of Russia in the 19th century. It is said that the Russian blue cat was brought to England and Northern Europe by sailors from the akangel islands in the 19th and 1960s.
In 1875, at the Crystal Palace in England, it was first registered as a Kandel cat. 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.
It was only after World War II that Russian blue cats were bred outside England and Scandinavia. Due to the traffic interruption during World War II, the blood relationship of pure blue cats was narrowed, and the number of Russian Blue Cats decreased sharply. So some breeders began to mix Russian blue cats with Siamese cats, making the appearance of Russian Blue Cats have some oriental flavor.
At present, there are very few Russian Blue Cats of pure blood in China. It is very difficult to get a pure Russian blue cat. Therefore, we must ensure pure breeding and avoid hybridization. Only in this way can the number of pure Russian Blue Cats continue to increase in China.
The Russian Blue Cat landed in the United States in the early 20th century. Mrs. Clinton Locke from Chicago bought a Russian Blue Cat from the British. After World War II, Americans began to cultivate the so-called “modern Russian Blue Cat”. Havana brown cat is a modern blue cat with Siamese pedigree. Its fur color is close to that of Havana cigar. Its appearance is similar to that of Persian cat. The only difference between Havana brown cat and Persian cat is that its hair is short, thick and fluffy. The ideal heterogeneous short haired cat should have strong bones, symmetrical body, soft and round lines. Round eyes, large round head, wide distance between eyes, short and thick neck, short nose, nose with obvious depression, high nasal segment and placed between eyes, full cheek. Broad and powerful jawbone with strong chin. The thin round ears incline slightly forward, and the distance between the two ears is wide. It has large, round and stout claws and a short tail in proportion to the body, so it is called the Havana brown cat. Another example is the nibelus, whose name comes from the German word “creatures as misty as frost”, which shows the beauty of its shape. However, the Russian Blue Cat’s pedigree is still maintained in the gray blue short haired cat species.
Although the Russian Blue Cat feels very cold, it is actually very easy to raise. It is quiet and quiet, and has a high IQ. I like living in an apartment, but I can also adapt to the cold environment. And it is also very clean, Russian Blue Cat even take care of its own health, so it is most suitable for the elderly.
