These are our particular 8 favorite reasons to get a Russian Blue Cat, from their physical appearance, to their characteristics, personality, temperament and many more. Check them out below and consider adding a furry and fantastic new member to your family!

1. Gentle & Kind

One of the top reasons to get a Russian Blue cat is that they are incredibly gentle, kind, caring and affectionate. They are not a violent breed and won’t make you cry a river of tears from scratches. The only aspect you should be careful with is change of tone, voice and mood, as Russian Blues can be sensitive to these sorts of changes.

2. Delightful Behavior

In addition to being a very gentle feline, the Russian Blue cat is extremely well-behaved and a sheer joy to coexist with. They serve as an amazing companion for day-to-day life and will always mind their manners in any situation. This is one of the traits that these short haired pretties are known for, but you should know that personal training matters the most in any cat’s upbringing. They are quite tolerant with strangers and guests, but they might hide in the beginning because they tend to be a bit shy. Once they get to know a person better, they will come closer and even allow them to pet their head gently after getting acquainted.

3. Elegant Presence

One of the most admired features of the Russian Blue cat is its striking physical presence. With a gorgeous blue-grey coat, a long and robust body, penetrating emerald or yellow eyes and a strong and elegant build are just a few of the features that make the Russian Blue stand out among other cat breeds. A Russian Blue will surely get you all touchy-feeling before you even know it and you will want to curl up and cuddle with him or her for hours. They truly are a breath-taking presence and have a peculiar and irresistible beauty about them.

4. Undying Devotion

Even though it might seem surprising at first, Russian Blue cats become totally and completely devoted to particularly one or two members of the family. Even though it seems like sort of a snobby breed at the beginning, they will dedicate all of their time, attention and affection to their owner and will be the most exceptional companion you could ever imagine. They are faithful, loveable and will always be by the side of their owner (much like a dog, in fact).

5. Witty & Intelligent

Another praised characteristic of the Russian Blue cat is its intelligence. Never underestimate the cleverness, wittiness or ability to learn of a Russian Blue; you will definitely be proven wrong. They can easily learn how to carry out all sorts of tricks and are very receptive to training. Even more so, they have an impressive memory and can remember names, faces and associate them to their respective owners.

6. Perfectly Playful

In addition to being super intelligent, Russian Blues use their smarts to play the day away. You would be surprised to know that these kitties are known to play fetch with their owners and usually take pleasure in entertaining themselves. What they will truly enjoy receiving is a sturdy scratching post where they can file their nails and scratch away as much as they please. You can enjoy playing around with a Russian Blue kitten for hours on end for non stop fun (for both the cat and yourself).

7. Less Shedding

Among the many advantages of getting a Russian Blue cat, we cannot simply pass by the fact that they are not heavy shedders. Owing to the fact that they have short and compact hair, Russian Blues do not shed as much as the majority of other cat breeds (great news for people with allergies) and subsequently require less grooming. Nevertheless, a Russian Blue will always enjoy a good brushing once a week for the scratching pleasure. Make sure to cut their nails frequently and try to brush their teeth when you have the time.

8. Great Health

Although it might be hard to believe, as Russian Blue cats are purebred, they really have great health. As opposed to other pure breeds that are prone to disease and various types of illnesses, Russian Blues do not have genetic patterns for getting sick and are no associated with any specific diseases. If you were to take a Russian Blue vs another kind of purebred cat, the Russian Blue will almost always be the healthier breed. They are not hypoallergenic and will generally live a long and healthy life if you take good care of them.
