Famous Russian blue: movie, cartoon characters, characters and pets of celebrities
Famous owners of Russian blue cats
It is believed that the Russian tsars and nobles preferred this particular breed of cats. The cat of Peter I Vaska was allowed not only to walk around the palace, but also to "push" the courtiers in every possible way.
The “cattress”, a lover of Russian blue, was the daughter of Peter I Elizabeth.
And Catherine II preferred dogs to cats, but gave Russian blue to heads of other states. According to one version, for example, the English “branch” of Russian blue cats originates precisely from the purses donated by the empress to the king of England.
The cat Vadka was a favorite of Nicholas I. The emperor gave a couple of Russian blue queen of Great Britain Victoria, who was a big lover of a cat tribe. However, according to other sources, Victoria was the proud owner of Persian blue cats, not Russian.
Representatives of the breed are gaining popularity not only in Europe but also in Asia. For example, the creators of anime actively use their images. And the musician of the Korean group Super Junior acquired a Russian blue cat nicknamed Hibuma. Another Korean musician (TVXQ band) has a representative from the Zizi breed.

Russian blue cats, despite their shyness, have established themselves as good actors. For example, the Keanu Reeves partner in the movie “Constantine” (“Constantine: Lord of Darkness”) was the cat Duck.

A representative of the breed appears in the comedy Cats Against Dogs. Russian Blue is the darling of the main villain, Mr. Tinkles (Persian cat). The heroine of the second part of the movie blue cat Katherine claims that she is "elegant and light, sharp on the tongue and teeth."

The leader of the gang of stray cats Smokey also belongs to this breed. Many lovers of Russian blue were extremely indignant at this interpretation of the image of their pets, and the idea was raised at the forums to file a lawsuit against the creators of the picture.
The image of the dark blue Prince Moon from the cartoon "Return of the Cat" will appeal to fans of the breed. This cat is distinguished by intelligence and excellent manners. However, a real prince cannot be different.
