Claims that Russians are Hypoallergenic

Welcome to the official web site of the Russian Blue Breeders' Association.

Russian Cat Genetic Diversity Project. The RBBA is pleased to publish this report by Cecilia Penedo PhD and wish to thank her for undertaking this on our behalf. We would also like to thank all the breeders who participated in this survey.

The "ranking chart" is anonymised in this public edition, however, any breeder who participated will be able to obtain the information privately on the individual "ranking" of their own cat(s) by e-mailing Miggie Ravenscroft who will be happy to provide the relevant information.

Please note that Miggie will be unable to deal with this until the end of July so please don't send your requests just yet. I will put a notice on FB when she will be able to.

The RBBA is affiliated to both the "Governing Council of the Cat Fancy", the organisation which oversees similar clubs and associations in Great Britain, and International Cat Care (formerly the Feline Advisory Bureau), a charity which promotes the health and welfare of cats.

If you are interested in buying a kitten (in the UK) the information you need is in the Breeder's list & Kitten Notes. Of course, kittens aren't always available.

We don't have any information about American breeders, but there are a number of sites in links section which should be able to help you.

Note the Welfare link. The RBBA, through its Welfare Officer, organises a rehoming service for homeless Russian Blues. You may feel that instead of a kitten you would like to adopt an older cat. If this is the case this page will tell you how to go about it. I'm afraid this service is restricted to the UK due to quarantine regulations.
