About Russian Blue cats
Russian Blue cats were spotted by UK sailors in the 1860s when they were visiting the Archangel Isles in Russia. The sailors couldn’t resist bringing these gentle cats home after being mesmerised by their velvety coats and charming personalities. We don’t blame them! It’s hard not to fall in love with this sweet, quiet and intelligent breed. Famed for their dense, silvery-blue coat, Russian Blue cats are known for being sleek and elegant. They appreciate a calm home and will show you love - once you’ve earned it!

Benefits of fresh cat food for Russian Blues
Russian Blues will appreciate being fed fresh cat food daily and will enjoy plenty of benefits from it too. These include:
Shiny, healthier coats
Like other cats, Russian Blues are obligate carnivores. This means that their bodies are designed for eating meat. Their sharp teeth are for tearing meat; not grinding plants. Their saliva and their liver don’t break down plants like herbivores do. Their digestive tract is shorter, because it’s built for meat. Yet industry standard cat foods overlook this, prioritising profit and shelf life over high quality ingredients. This needs to change. At KatKin, we put cats first. Our fresh cat food is formulated by vets and made with premium ingredients: simply 100% fresh-cooked human-grade meat. Switch fearlessly and try fresh cat food with your Russian Blue today.

Russian Blue cat FAQs
Your Russian Blue cat should be fed one pouch of KatKin fresh cat food per day. This is because we tailor our food pouches perfectly to every cat we meet. Inside is the exact daily calorie and nutrient needs your Russian Blue requires. Making feeding easier.
You should aim to feed your Russian Blue kitten between 3 - 4 times per day.We perfectly portion your Russian Blue kitten’s food into pouches. One pouch is a daily serving, filled with all the nutrients your kitten needs. Keeping this in mind, we recommend dividing one pouch of KatKin food into three or four meals a day.
Although no cat is 100% hypoallergenic, Russian Blue cats are often categorised as hypoallergenic. This is because they produce less Fel D1 than other breeds. Fel D1 is the protein which people can be allergic to.
Russian Blue cats are quite a vocal breed but their meows tend to be quiet and gentle. They will use soft mews to get your attention when it is time for playing or cuddles. This breed will sometimes even engage in a back and forth conversation with their cat parents.
Despite being initially aloof, Russian Blue cats love to cuddle. They may hang back at first and assess any newcomers. However, once a Russian Blue has decided you are a friend, they will follow you like a shadow and enjoy lots of snuggle time.
