These words are descriptive of
one of the oldest breeds of cats produced by Mother Nature.
The pedigreed RUSSIAN
BLUE occurs in
one coat length - short; one color - blue.
While other associations permit
hybridization with cats descended of unknown parentage,
and the subsequent registration of their long haired and color variant
the RBF is firm in our dedication to preserving the Russian Blue as
The RBF is committed to maintaining the CFA standard which disallows
of long haired or color variant genes into CFA Russian Blue pedigrees.
RBF acknowledges an individual’s
right to choose what is beautiful to him
and pursue that beauty.
However, we are firm in our conviction that the offspring of hybridization
is not a Russian Blue, but a man-made "sport" of the breed.
