Russian blue cat cattery

We have been breeding Russian Blue kittens for years so that many homes can enjoy these perfect companions. 
Starting from imposing physical traits, the result of careful genetic selection of high value for the development of the breed, we dedicate much of our time to raising and socializing unique puppies ideal for family life. 

About the Russian Blue breed

Although a priori you may think that any gray cat with green eyes is likely to be Russian Blue, there are a series of characteristics that will determine whether or not it is a Russian Blue cat. At an individual level, no two cats are the same, but there are traits common to specific breeds, so if you want to learn how to distinguish a Russian Blue cat from other felines that may be similar in some aspects, you are in the right place.

It's all in the genes

You will be curious to know that, although there are a series of genetic factors that predispose any cat to be a certain way, there are also supervening factors that will make a difference and that can be worked on to get the maximum potential out of said genetics.  

The sum of a good genetic base together with the work done with each puppy is what will give rise to an exceptional cat.

How we work

Your Russian blue in
5 steps

The availability of puppies cannot and should not be immediate and this is due to several factors that will determine the quality of the work carried out and the genetic lines that the kennel is trying to develop.  

Contact

The first contact is crucial to get to know each other. For our part, we have a form with very brief questions that it is essential to answer all of them so that we can get an idea of whether or not it is advisable to introduce a puppy into your home, depending on how it is configured. 

Pre booking

Once you have carefully read our general conditions and know in detail the services that accompany each of our kittens and the cost of the entire process, you can now formalize a reservation if you wish. 

To do this, a series of personal data is requested that will later be used to process all the kitten's documentation.  We will also provide you with our company information so that you know at all times who you are dealing with and what our zoological nucleus, breeding affiliation and other legal information of interest are. 

Pre-Booking Payment

To be part of our waiting list, it is essential to formalize a first payment on account, detailed in our general conditions and in our pre-reservation form, which will subsequently be deducted from the final payment for the puppy.

The waiting list is set up in strict order of arrival of said payments and at the time of making it, the future family will be aware of the maximum waiting time until the birth of their future puppy.

Wait time

The average waiting time usually ranges between 10 and 18 months, although on occasion it may be somewhat shorter or longer in time.

During this time, we usually take the opportunity to get to know the future family a little more and clarify some doubts, although the process accelerates when the kittens are born.

Through Instagram, the different litters are announced and you can see how the wait is getting shorter.

Birth of the litter

Once your turn arrives and your kitten is born, we contact you before publishing anything on networks and we provide you with details about the litter, the parents and other information of interest. 

This is when monitoring the kitten's evolution begins, which will end with its delivery 14 to 16 weeks later.

FAQs

There are several feline breeds with so-called blue fur. In reality, it is a gray coat with bluish reflections depending on the light that hits it.

This coloration is what will determine its name and among these breeds, we find the Russian blue, where the outer coat will be in a gray tone, lighter or darker depending on the genetic line.

Although in recent years Russian blues have begun to be bred in other shades (black and white), they are still not recognized by the main international feline associations, so we could say that they are in the experimental phase.

The average longevity attributable to this breed ranges between 12 and 15 years. However, we know of cases in which they have exceptionally exceeded 20 years of age.

They owe their name to two factors: color and origin.   On the one hand, the gray fur has bluish flashes depending on how the light hits it, which is why they are called blue. On the other hand, its origins do lie in Russia, which gives it the title of Russian.

The price of a Russian blue depends on several factors and can be very divergent depending on them.  The factors that can determine it can be summarized as:

  • Location of the kennel (acquiring a puppy in Spain is not the same as acquiring it in the United States, for example)
  • Genetic lines involved in breeding the puppy: as in everything, there are lines of greater or lesser quality from the point of view of breed development.  It is not the same for the breeder to work with poorly developed genetics from this point of view as for him to have acquired a specimen of high quality and cost.
  • Legal or illegal breeding: a breeder with everything legalized (zoological nucleus in operation, economic activity that regulates the purchase and sale of puppies and includes taxes, breeding affix, specific facilities, healthy parents, etc.) does not have the same costs. ) someone who breeds illegally and does not comply with the applicable requirements.
  • Guarantees that the puppy includes.
  • Operation of the hatchery: hours of real socialization dedicated to the litters, feeding guidelines applied to parents and offspring, veterinary care, action protocols, etc.
  • Facilities: a private home where a room is designated for cats will not be the same as having facilities specially built to house them based on their specific needs and meeting the necessary sanitary conditions.
  • Services included with the puppy: they can be very varied and range from those required by law (vaccines, deworming, sterilization, microchip) to those that the kennel may offer as an extra (advice and ethology, batch of products, etc.)

Taking these and other factors into account, prices currently in Spain may vary from 900 € to the 1700 € per puppy.

When looking for the most convenient option, it is important to evaluate everything that is included and what is not.

Probably if the cost of the puppy is €1000 but delivery is at 8 weeks (4 weeks earlier than required by law) and it is not vaccinated, dewormed, sterilized or microchipped, they will not give you a batch of products or advice. , etc., it will ultimately be much more expensive than another option of €1,500 where everything is included and the process is legal.

Another example would be if they require you to disburse a large amount of cash (this means that the required taxes are not included and that the activity does not declare that income), or that instead of buying and selling they talk about donation to the hatchery, etc. They are forms of tax evasion that should not be reliable.

It is important to know that very low prices should also make us suspicious. There are multiple frauds surrounding this breed and no one gives away dollars for four pesetas. 

Advertisements for puppies from €150 to €600 are usually published by individuals who are not breeding legally and/or where the parents are not breed nor can they provide you with documentation proving that the puppy is.

Cats with the same characteristics can easily be found for free adoption.

There are no hypoallergenic cats, but there are certain breeds that, due to a series of characteristics, are considered to have less impact on those with allergies.  The Russian Blue breed is one of them, but nevertheless, each individual will have a different degree of affectation and it is impossible to know the reaction to each specific cat until they live together.

For this reason, it is essential that before making a decision as to whether or not to acquire a Russian Blue cat, you go to an allergist and ask for their advice and advice.

Due to the very nature of cats, the moment of transport is very stressful for them. For this reason, we try to ensure that they are as closely guarded as possible and with the least environmental stress that can be achieved during the journey.

In this sense, we recommend that collections always be at our kennel, preferably by car, although depending on the final destination, air or rail transportation may be necessary.

On some exceptional occasions when the family has not been able to travel, we have taken them ourselves to the destination address.

We never use animal transport companies and we do not export puppies, so if you live outside of Europe, we will not be able to help you.
