OUR POSITION ON RUSSIAN BLUE VARIANTS

Naturally occurring.

Shorthaired.

Blue.

 

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 offspring,
the RBF is firm in our dedication to preserving the Russian Blue as described above.
The RBF is committed to maintaining the CFA standard which disallows the introduction
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.
