  1. My Russian blue has a HUGE appetite and meows for food all the time lol! He is very intelligent though.

  2. These cats 101 video makes it hard to select which breed. All claiming each are the most intelligent (ie Siamese, Abyssinian etc), The green eyes are stunning

  3. I got one of dee’s but ma momma say I can’t bring it cause some one might steel it in a southern urban accent

  4. I have one of these but is a slight mix, but still grey. Super loyal cat and super smart. Very curious and trusting of owners if you don't do stupid stuff to scare them.

  5. Great cats. This video misses it big time, though, as NO cats like "change". Weird that they would harp on that multiple times. My Russian Blue HATES moving, but it takes about an hour and he's good, lying on his back.

  6. I used to have a Russian blue Siamese mix and she was the sweetest thing ever she always had so much energy even at the age of 14 when she died R.I.P. spook

  7. I am looking through breeders right now looking to adopt one of these amazing kitties. Question for anyone who can answer – do they need other cats to be happy? I just want the one for now. It's only me and my husband in the house, although we are planning to have a baby within 2 years, and we work most of the day, so the cat will be alone for at least 9 hours a day. Is that an acceptable environment for this breed or will they really struggle with loneliness?
