Real-Life Russian Breed History & TemperamentEdit
"The Russian Blue is a naturally occurring breed that may have originated in the port of Arkhangelsk, Russia. They are also sometimes called Archangel Blues. It is believed that sailors took Russian Blues from the Archangel Isles to England and Northern Europe in the 1860s. The first recorded appearance outside of Russia was in 1875 at the Crystal Palace in England, where they were known as the Archangel Cat.
During the early 1970s, a solid white Russian Blue - called the Russian White - was created by an Australian breeder through the crossing of a Russian Blue with a domestic white cat. By the late 1970s, the Russian White and Russian Black colors were accepted by cat fanciers as Russian cats (in different classes). However, in North America, the CFA does not recognize either variation of the Russian Blue."
"The elegant, aristocratic Russian a keen intellect that makes it an engaging companion. The Russian surveys a situation before diving in and so rarely gets itself into a difficult situation - it observes people to determine if they are worthy of its companionship. Sometimes people see this behavior as shy or aloof when it is really a reserve with strangers until it has fully assessed them. Once the Russian decides you are worthy of its attention, it is extremely affectionate and expects your loving attention to all its needs."
