Favored for their short, thick, velvety silver-blue fur, the Russian Blue cat also has mesmerizing green eyes that grow ever greener with age. Another unique feature is that, due to their prominent whisker pads and upturned mouth, they look like they are smiling. Who knows, maybe they are. Russian Blues tend to be lusciously affectionate and loyal. They are shy with strangers but once they know you, they love you.
Price Tag: $350–$3,000
Fun Fact: Russian Blues are so sensitive to the mood in their home that they have been known to play games to try to cheer a crying child or pat your face in a similar way a mom would say, “there, there” to a youngster. They crave peaceful and quiet environments and love a predictable routine.
