This video is about my Russian Blue kitten first month at home.
First month with my Pedigree Russian Blue Kitten during this corona/covid19 pandemic. I choose him from a long list of other breeds like Ragdoll, British Shorthair, Maine Coon, Bengal, Devon Rex, Munchkin, Sphynx (naked/hairless cat), Abyssinian, American Shorthair and Persian. He came from a litter of three. I eventually decided I wanted a hypoallergenic cat. Also a Russian Blue doesn't not need a lot of grooming. Another fact about Russian Blues is that they are a very healthy and illness isn't very common. This makes it that they have quite as long lifespan.
Russian Blue cats are considered hypoallergenic cats and good for people with allergies. They produce a lot less of the Fel d1 and Fel d4 protein which causes the allergic reaction, but it doesn't mean you won't get a allergic reaction. Keep this in mind when you decide you want a Russian Blue. Visit a breeder or cattery, if possible, to see if you get an allergic reaction.
You also have variations in Russian Blues when it comes to color. There also are blue point Russian Blues and they also come in black. I had a slight preference for a blue/grey one.
If you're wondering is the Russian Blue the right cat for me, well the personality of a Russian Blue differs per cat. None is the same. Personally I don't believe in the defined characteristic for a Russian Blue. Mine will come to check out new visitors and is curious about them. According to the characteristics found on the Internet, of a Russian Blue, this should not happen.
Shedding with a Russian Blue will happen, although not a lot.There is a lot of information out there on the internet.
Before getting my kitten I did a lot of research in the internet and consulted a few experts on the matter such as Jackson Galaxy and Kitten Lady.
I named him after a character from the Naruto Anime.
He's an only cat for now, but I might get him a lady down the line :)
