Every country tends to have unique animals specific to that region and Russia is no exception. Russia has a variety of cat breeds that are native to their country, so if you enjoy Russia, you might want to adopt a Russian cat.

The Russian Blue is the most popular Russian cat breed. Legend holds that English sailors brought these beautiful grey cats tinged with blue from Archangelsk, a port city in the north of Russia.

Another popular Russian cat is the long-haired Siberian cat. Due to the local snowy and cold climate, these cats have long thick fur and a bulky undercoat.
