This breed differs from all the others mainly by its double short coat, which is blue-gray, even and has a distinct silver shine. Medium blue-gray with silver shine is the preferred FIFe variant. Any color other than blue is not permitted by the FIFe specification. You would not be able to get to the cats skin even with the most painstaking combing. In case of soaking the top layer of the coat sucks all the water up, but the lower layer of the coat and white skin remain completely dry. These cats are rather small, usually even after castration females do not exceed the weight of 4 kg and males 5.5 kg. The limbs are slender and long, the tiny paws are oval in shape, the pointed ears just multiply their spell with short bristles, making this angelic lion look like a lynx, eyes should have a deep green color and a non-oriental appearance (however, in the US, Russian blue cats of oriental appearance spread successfully). You can find a striking smile on their face.
