The Russian Blue

Russian Blue

The Russian Blue is an intelligent companion who is attentive and affectionate, but does not necessarily want to sit all over you.


They are a bit nervous of strangers; once you have their trust, you are theirs. They can be startled easily and for their own safety, it would be better that they are inside cats.

The Russian Blue loves to play and can be trained to do tricks, see them in the videos below. They are a fun cat that is supportive to their owner, they really pay attention!
