When it comes to acquiring Russian Blue kittens, it is best to look for Russian blue kittens here. It is vital that you buy it from a breeder who gives them a lot of handling right from birth. A Russian Blue kitten is unlikely to warm up to you immediately but he should give the impression that he is at ease with handling by the breeder. However, in case he shies away from her, looking elsewhere is advisable.
This breed is ideal to any home that has people who will love him and comb his beautiful coat every week. Keeping him indoors is important for his protection from cars, attacks from other animals, and diseases that are spread by other cats. If well cared for, he can live for 13 years or longer.
This breed has a rich silvery-blue coat, emerald green eyes, and long legs and body. His head, which is moderately wedge-shaped, is neither too long nor too short. Its huge ears are wide at the base, with more pointed rather than rounded tips.
Sometimes the kittens are born with “ghost stripes”, appearing as tabby markings. However, as the cat grows up and develops into an adult fur, these stripes eventually vanish.
European Russian Blues tend to be larger than their American counterparts, and the Russian Blue cats in Australia and New Zealand, which are referred to simply as Russians normally come in white, black, and the characteristic silver-blue.
The size of a Russian blue litter averages at three kittens.
If the kitten is advertised or sold as pedigree Russian Blue, the breeder is required to provide the new owner with at least 3 generations’ signed pedigree certificate. In addition, he should also give the new owner the registration certificate, which is in the form of a transfer slip. For the transfer of a cat or kitten’s ownership to take place, the transfer must be signed by the breeder and the new owner and sent to the office of the relevant authorities, along with the appropriate fee. A transfer slip that is marked “no progeny to be registered” is an indication that the cat should not be used for breeding since the authorities will not register its litter. It is required that kittens for showing be registered and transferred into the name of the new owner 21 days before the show date.
Diet and grooming
You should make sure that you obtain a diet sheet from the breeder to enable you give the kitten familiar food to begin with.
Worth of note is the fact that the Russian Blue kitten’s baby coat usually loses its thickness at the age of between 9 and 10 weeks, making it look somewhat flat. However, by the time it is four or five months old, the coat should be quite short, thick, rich and very fine. It should be appropriately standing away from the body and have a silky texture.
Several kittens are sold with insurance. This is meant to cover any sickness of accidents that may occur during the kitten’s initial few weeks in its new home.
