Mother Russia’s cat breed… the Russian Blue.
The Russian Blue (aka archangel blue) is known for its intelligence, playfulness, companionship, and of course, its silvery-blue coat. Some Russian blues are smart enough to learn interesting tricks, and they are playful enough to actually play “catch” like a dog. They are extremely friendly and loving towards their owners, but can sometimes be shy around strangers. Their somewhat magical blue-grey coat is thick and short-haired and their eyes are usually green.
