From Catster – Russian Blue cats are known for being both intelligent and independent. They are moderately active, and like to play. They are also very affectionate, and get along well with kids and other pets. Russian Blues are generally wary of strangers, and will hide when company comes over. This breed is fussy about its litter box, and wants it kept very clean. If the box is dirty, a Russian Blue may decide to eliminate elsewhere. Russian Blues can be very independent. The Russian Blue are not believed to be related to other short-coated blue breeds, like the Korat, Chartreux or the British Shorthair. Do any of you out there own a Russian Blue? If so we’d love to hear from you. Please send us any pictures that you might have. Also we’d love to hear some stories or watch some videos for inclusion into the website.
