Royal Blues Russian Blue Cattery
We are a small TICA registered cattery located just outside of Dayton, Ohio. We offer beautiful, well-socialized pet kittens from European champion blood lines. The babies are born into a family home environment and get tons of love and attention from day one. Our #1 goal as breeders is to provide you with a sweet, healthy, outgoing kitten that will be your companion for many years to come!
Russian Blues are a unique breed with many desirable traits! They have a beautiful, short but lush silver-tipped fur and stunning emerald green eyes. Their "Russian smile" will melt your heart. They are calm, loving, easy going, quiet kitties that have many dog-like tendencies. Our cats love a game of fetch & following you around the house to supervise chores. Russian Blues have a reputation for being reserved around strangers but we find that they warm up very quickly to guests and oftentimes greet them at the door. They are affectionate and loyal. They are an intelligent breed that quickly learns new tricks and games- or rather quickly teaches you to play games with them.
Blues are excellent mousers and critter catchers. Very playful and loving to their humans. One of our cats even initiates games of tag with the kids! Super cute to watch! Blues shed less than some other breeds and are very rarely destructive. They are sensitive and will appear to sulk if reprimanded. They will also go out of their way to cheer up the kids if they are crying or hurt. Russian Blues have also been referred to as the perfect "apartment cat" because they have a pretty tranquil demeanor and do not seem to mind being alone while you work- although they will be very happy to see you when you get home. They are all around sweet cats. The perfect breed in our eyes!
There is a lot of false information online about Russian Blues being hypoallergenic. They are good for some (but definitely not all) people with cat allergies. There is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic cat but it is said that Russian Blues rank low on the allergy scale. Not only are they a lower shedding breed but they also produce less of the Fel d 1 protein which is the most common allergen in cats. We want forever homes for our babies so please be honest about allergies when contacting us. We are happy to set up a visit with our cats after you've placed a deposit.
Kittens receive at least 2 veterinary exams, vaccinations, microchip and are spayed/neutered prior to placement into their new homes. They are fed a combination of Nature's Variety & Royal Canin "Mother & Babycat" dry food, Wellness & Holistic brand wet food and a whole food diet including shredded chicken, salmon and farm fresh quail eggs. Samples of their food are included in the kitten welcome home kit.
We are a closed cattery. For health and safety concerns for our kittens, we do not allow casual visits to our home. Only after a deposit has been made and your spot has been secured on the waiting list, do we allow visits to choose or to pick up a kitten. Young kittens are susceptible to germs/illness and we want to keep their exposure to a minimum.
Kittens are $2500
