Friday Feature

I am Pushkin,
Hear me purr

The Russian Blue is known for being a very intelligent and tranquil animal. People have reported Russian Blue's who enjoy playing fetch and are sensitive to human emotions. They develop extremely loyal bonds with their loved ones, yet are reserved and shy around strangers.

Russian Blues have an average life expectancy of around 10–15 years, have few health problems, little to no genetic problems, and are not prone to illness. They are a moderate-sized cat with an average weight of 8-12 pounds when full grown. Males are typically larger than females.

The Russian Blue produces less glycoprotein Fel d 1 and is much less of an allergen source than other breeds of cat. This would suggest that the Russian Blue breed may be hypoallergenic, but others point out that no cat is truly free of allergens.

Pushkin is an eight-year-old female Russian Blue who gets along with other cats but prefers the company of mature companions. She would be perfectly happy being your only pet if it would mean being the apple of your eye. For more information, visit or email
