According to legends breed initially appeared in Russia (Arkhangelsk region). At the end of the 18th century silver-blue beauties got to Western Europe where not bad got accustomed and accustomed. It is considered to be that since the end of the 19th century until the beginning of the 20th there were first described standards of these breed. During World War II the Russian blue cats practically disappeared, however thanks to the few Western European manufacturers could restore population after war, and in 90-x years of the last century returned on the historical homeland.
In Belarus the Russian blue cats are so far quite rare, but, unlike many other breeds choose these cats purposefully. As a rule, future owners study previously features of breed and make the conscious decision to get Russian blue cat.
On appearance east breeds more: thin, graceful, graceful. The weight of the Russian blue cat seldom "holds on" to 3 kg, the cat weighs about 4 kg.
Most often choose the Russian blue cats for character. They are very balanced, with pleasure sit on hands. Aggression is the first that is discarded therefore Russians blue, in the majority, tender and affectionate.
Observation of the manufacturer: Representatives of breed perfectly communicate with children, especially if grew at manufacturers who have children .
These cats remarkably get on with other animals if, of course, they are not offended.
Loneliness the Russian blue cats transfer
quietly. Though if you are going on vacation, of course, better if there is an opportunity to ask someone to visit pets at least once a day. When the owner comes back after long absence, they can show offense, even to revenge.
But if in family several animals, they can entertain each other therefore the cat strongly will not miss the owner.
Recommendation of the manufacturer: If conditions allow, it is better to hold two animals, not very well, these are two cats or a cat and a dog.
But, in principle, cats sleep about 20 hours a day therefore they do not need the round-the-clock communication.
the Russian blue cats are exclusively clean
. If you take a kitten at the age of 3 months (and the manufacturer respecting himself will not give a kitten is younger), the kid will already use with guarantee a tray.
of Observation of the manufacturer: The Russian blue cats well give in to education, perfectly understand the bans, however it is better not to provoke them on "harm". For example, if the cat cannot go on a table, but you left something seductive there, then there is a probability of 99% that the cat nevertheless will check: and what there such interesting?
However characters of cats, as well as characters of people, differ. There are cats timid, are extremely curious. The character can change with change of a hormonal background (for example, the cat who gave birth to kittens becomes much more courageous). The character is shown early enough therefore future owner can choose that kitten who suits it more.
Breed of the Russian blue cats "is not constructed" on genetic mutations and changed a little for the history therefore representatives of breed have no genetic diseases.
Life expectancy of the Russian blue cats — 13 — 15 years, but is the veterans living up to 20 years and they have no particular problems with health.
the Russian blue cats are unpretentious, however to tell that it is not necessary to look after them at all – to violate the truth.
Recommendation of the manufacturer: The minimum care of wool is necessary. once a week (it is better for a thicket) it is necessary to remove the dropped-out wool from a back. It can be done even by a wet hand, but in general on sale there are special mittens. Cats very much love this procedure. In the apartment in this case will be much cleaner.
the Russian blue cats adore heat. Even if in +25 degrees, they can all the same be found on the battery. Nevertheless kotorkovat wool.
the Russian blue cat can be washed, but it is better not to abuse it (not more often than 1 time in half a year).
of an Eye and ears clean as required. If the cat scratches an ear or allocations from eyes are observed, so it is worth taking care of wellbeing of the favourite. But once again you should not climb in ears — there is a risk to do much harm.
these cats are accustomed To a kogtetochka without problems.
As for tray, if an opportunity allows, is better to choose a lodge with the removed cover, in this case filler will not pour out and indoors there will be less garbage.
We adhere to the principles of the mixed feeding. At cats in continuous access both a dry feed, and 4 — 5 of "natural dishes" at choice (chicken mix from a chicken liver, heart and stomachs with porridge, and any porridge – a cellulose source).
Observations of the manufacturer: There are cats who prefer a dry feed, there are fans of "naturalka". Kittens well eat broths. If meat crude, then we try to give it peremorozhenny. It is possible to offer pets chicken necks .
If is the competition for food, then with the first the most important cat, then all others on hierarchy eats. And mother can even not admit kittens to the favourite food.
We do not have
need to limit cats in food. But if the cat lives at you as the only pet and does not participate in cultivation, then it is better to sterilize her. And in this case it is necessary to struggle with obesity and to limit quantity of a forage. It can be difficult as the Russian blue cats are great beggars. Of course, not to surpass dogs to them, but they are able to represent a being on a starvation threshold skillfully.
