Shedding and allergies

How to tell a true Russian Blue cat?

Below are the pictures of the purebred Russian Blue cat vs. mixed breed cat (half Russian Blue, he was claimed and sold as pure breed). They are both males of about the same age. You may notice the difference in eyes and fur color, size and body shape. The mixed cat also sheds much more. We love all cats and hope you do too.   

  • shed lightly 

  • have lower levels of known feline allergens

  • could be less allergenic as they have less fur to trap feline allergens that all cats produce. Some people react to cat dander. However, if you are truly cat allergic, do not get any cat as you may end up re-homing that cat which is very stressful - for both the cat and the owner.
