I have a beautiful young female Russian Blue that bred with a grey Tabby. Her Kittens are beautiful and are reversed tabbies , silver blue light grey and are reversed tabbies with whithe stripes instead of black or dark stripes. The girls are gorgeous, with all the features of her HER. ONE HAS THE HEAD AND EARS AND SLIM BODY BUT NOT THE PINCH SMILE. THE OTHER HAS THE PINCH SMILE BUT IS TAKING AFTER THE FATHER WITH A ROUNDER HEAD AND STALKIER BODY BUT THE FACE FEATURES AND EVEN THE SOUNDS THEY MAKE WHEN THEY MIAO ARE SPECIFICALY RUSSIAN BLUE. VERY VOCAL LIKE THEIR MOTHER. DO I HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL. CAN THEY BE RECOGNIZED AS SUCH . TO ME THEY ARE AND JUST THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE REVERSETABBIE MARKINGS MAKES THEM VERY DISTINGTIVE. CAN THEY BE SHOWN ANYWHERE. DOES ANY BODY KNOW OR EVEN SOLD AS UNIQUE AS THEY ARE_

    In order to show a cat, the cat has to be a recognized breed by the ACFA (American Cat Fanciers Association) or the TICA (The International Cat Association).  You would obviously have to be able too reproduce the kittens you have, have the markings, coloring, size etc stablaized to allow rules for points to be established.  This is a complicated and long term endeavor but you can write either organization and ask them and if interested, how you would go about it.

    Ms.Gesia Rosenberg, I know this is quite a few years late. But would you have pictures of your 'babies'? Did you sell any kittens? If so, may I ask:How much? And where are you? I'm in VA. 56 years old, been disabled since I was in car crash at 25. I would be interested in some (2?) of your kittens if you ever have more, and the price is right. (I have very little $,but a LOT of love.) Have 2 dogs, but they are 'daddies babies'! I love them, too, just not the same. Thank-you in advance, Kris Behrens

    I live in Maryland and I have a Russian Blue cat at least that's what I was told. She looks like the cats on your sight..However as much as I love her I need to find her a good home because I have pet allergies and can no longer keep her..If anyone is interested in her please email me at pconstant1202@yahoo.com and let me know I don't want to put her in a shelter. .

I recently rescued a russian blue/domestic mix and she is the sweetest and most well behaved kitty I have ever encountered! She is very affectionate and smart - she can entertain herself very well! She does seem to be wary of strangers but will warm up eventually. Her coat is the most beautiful and soft fur! I highly reccommend this breed! We couldn't afford a purebred but I am so very happy with my halfsie!

    My cat of 18 years died from kidney failure and I was so grief stricken my husband rescued a half Russian blue/ tabby mix from the local animal shelter. He is the most delightful, affectionate and handsome cat I have ever had. He is very popular at the Vet's office(Recently had him neutered). And everyone wants to hold him and kiss him. I too would recommend this breed or half breed to any cat lover. I love this cat so much. I am thankful to God for this cat's companionship and I pray he will live to be atleast 30 years old.

    What kind of mix are they. Domestic what_ Mine are two gorgeous girls that came out with a reverse Tabby Coat Spots and white. They are all Russian Blue in behaviour, verbalizing and making a funny sound that I have never herd before but that Russian Blue make.

    So very sorry to hear of the death of your beloved cat.

    Anonymous and Renata: So sorry you lost your friends, but may I urge you and every cat owner to please, please keep them indoors for life so your losses are not repeated. I have had cats all my life and kept all indoors only. Eventually one loses them to illness or old age, but they live safer and longer lives indoors. Please, fellow kitty-lovers, keep them alive and inside!
    Adopted a 4-month old Russian Blue, had him altered at 6 months yesterday. He is a riotous little scoundrel, playful in the extreme, hugely affectionate, and chronic purr-er, chow-hound, and rock-and-rolling wrestler with my 3-year old Tonkinese. Sleeps on our bed, cuddling and chasing toes. Has demolished a number of glass and pottery items thus far, zooming and leaping around with his buddy. Has a Siamese head, those little mauve toes, quite small and will probably remain small-ish. We named him Boris, but call him BB (Boris the Brat), and he is just a total delight and a wonderful example of his breed.

Is there another breed of cat with the title of Russian besides the Russian Blue? This breed is a little longer haired and has a double coat.

    I have seen one on a webside.it doesn't have russian in it's title, but on wikipedia they describe it as "the breed was best defined as semi-long haired Russian Blue -Nebelung breed". It is longhaired cat,has double grey coat, they come from Germany. Look it up in wikipedia of you want to know more about them.

I lost my very friendly cat Fletcher with name tag and all to an "evil" man (a tenant), who stole him and maybe killed him. Thank God that man is gone now. I was very afraid to get another pet, as I am very protective of them - that's why I don't have dogs anymore (my first love) - because of tenants downstairs. But I visited my local animal shelter and cried over my missing cat. Then a woman directed me to this little shiny grey quiet cat, who turned out to be the best behaved cat ever! She does not go to strangers, she does not eat scraps nor eat from your plate nor interfere with the garbage - she will drink your water though, she does not go where I don't- she has never yet ventured into any of the other apartments open doors or windows even if she is bribed. She loves to stay inside even though she is free to go out. She communicates with me in sound - she calls to find out where I am in the apartment. She is very serious about being fed to her leisure. Once I'm home, she stays close to where I am approx. 80% of the time. And if I'm out, she stays inside approx. 95% of the time. If I'm out she waits until I come home to go outside to hunt and do her 'business'. The point is, she's safe from dangerous people. And for this I am so grateful. When I get up in the morning she walks beside me and guides me to her bowl to feed her first. You can't help but develop a very close and instinctive bond with this cat. She helped me in dealing with the grief of losing my previous cat. I was afraid of the man, but I am not afraid anymore. God gave me victory over him - I smile and wave hello whenever I see him - he is so confused when I do that. But you see because he killed my cat (which belongs to God) for whatever reason, I now know what a dangerous person he was. He broke my water line on purpose during the early hours of the morning then called me @2:30am then again @3:30am to come downstairs - the plumber confirmed it was tampered with (twice). So while I still grieve for my cat Fletcher I am grateful to have overcome this dangerous threat to my life in the likes of this man- because I lived alone at the time. But now peace has come and my new lovely cat Smokey is my new room-mate - she has her own identity/ demands privacy, etc. In fact, she's a lot like me!

    What a lovely story :) I am so glad you found peace and happiness with this new cat that the Lord gave you. However the man in this story sounds VERY scary (oh my goodness!) - praise God he's gone too! I'm not sure I could wave to someone that sounds so evil. Good for you and I wish you well. May the peace of the Lord be with you always.

    My little girl, Bella is a rescue cat, who also consoled me after I lost my beloved blue Oriental, Nicholas, to kidney disease at age 12. Her nature seems much like your cat's although I have to monitor her food intake as she is very fond of her food. Lorraine, Qld, Australia.
