Russian Blue Cats

Nancy Barber from mom.me

Although the exact origin of the breed is unknown, it is widely believed that Russian Blues came from the Archangel Isles in northern Russia. They made the journey to Europe, specifically Great Britain, during the 1800s and were most likely carried over by sailors. As a hail to that origin, they are sometimes called “Archangel Cats” or “Archangel Blues." 

  Going back to its heritage roots, these cats were considered a very good sign. In Russian folklore, the Russian Blue was thought to be a good luck charm. There have been stories of a Russian Blue healing a sickly Russian prince and tsars placing the cats in newborns’ chambers to ward off evil spirits.
