There are many ways to acquire a Russian blue cat. You can go the animal shelters with the hope that an abandoned cat is a Russian blue or you can go to reputable breeders. You can also view Russian blue cats for adoption through newspaper ads but make certain that you are buying a healthy and clean cat. Pet stores are also an option but make sure that the cat was not acquired from kitten mills where breeding practices may not be the best.
How to make a choice for a pet cat
Do you want a kitten or an adult cat? Kittens are lovable and cute but they require more care and monitoring as they grow up. Kittens are active and full of energy and you will find them climbing the top of your kitchen cabinet or prying into ductworks. Matured cats are usually house broken and they have been trained. They can adjust easily to the household and bond with humans. They know how to use the litter box which is one less thing off your responsibilities.
Do you want a male or female cat? There is hardly any difference between a male and female cat but it is important to ensure that the cat you are adopting has been neutered or spayed so that it will not add to the overpopulation of cats.
Do you want a long-haired cat or a short-haired cat? If you want a long haired cat, you will probably like the Persian cat or the American Bobtail with their full coats that have been developed naturally. If you want a short-haired cat, the Russian blue will be an ideal choice. The Russian blue appears to be bigger than it really is because of the double coat which is its most eye-catching feature. The coat is blue in color with silver tips that
shimmers in light.
What type of personality are you looking for in a cat? Cats have different personalities. The Russian blue is well behaved and reserved while the Abyssinian is bouncy and busy. The Siamese is talkative and demanding. The Russian blue is an ideal companion because it is not demanding and can stay alone amusing itself while you are at the office.
What physical characteristics are you interested in? Cats have different physical characteristics but the Russian blue is quite distinct. Apart from the blue color of coat with the shimmering silver tips, the large eyes are vivid green that looks at you with a slight smile. If you want to match your personality with your adopted pet, make an effort to research.
How much are you willing to spend to own a cat? If you cannot find a cat to adopt at the animal shelters or animal rescue centers, your option will be to buy from the breeders. Purebred cats and kittens are quite expensive because they are rare and comprise approximately 3 to 5% of the cat population. The cost of a pedigreed kitten would largely depend upon availability, uniqueness and quality, meaning it has achieved honor in cat shows.
