About The Russian Blue Also known as Archangel Cats, Russian Blues are medium-sized, lithe cats with brilliant green eyes and short, plush, blue coats tipped in shimmering silver. In ACFA, they are also accepted in white and black coat colors. The entire aspect of a Russian Blue is regal elegance with just a hint of humor and mischief.
While Russian Blues are fiercely devoted to family, they are reserved with strangers, as if to ask the newcomers to prove their worthiness. Once accepted, you will be a Russian Blue's friend for life. Intelligent and clever, they may train you to play favorite games! They do reasonably well being home by themselves, but prefer to have companionship of humans and other pets.
Did You Know? Although they have solid colored coats, Russian Blue kittens often have "ghost stripes", pale shadows of tabby markings that fade as they grow up.
