The male of any breeding programme is often referred to as the ‘cornerstone’, because he should possess the most desirable qualities of his breed, to pass onto his offspring. We breed to meet the rather exacting standard of points of the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) in America, and we take great care to ensure that the Russian Blue males which we include in our breeding programme conform to that description. The American, CFA standard calls for a fine-boned, more gracile Russian Blue than the UK-bred, GCCF standard of Russian Blue. With wider-set ears and rounder eyes, the CFA type of Russian Blue simply captivates with their pale silver, plushy coats and affectionate, outgoing temperaments. For more information about the difference in types of Russian Blue cat, please read our illustrated article.
Champion Wychwood Blue Song
Blue is our own home-bred boy, who never fails to charm our visitors with his contented, relaxed temperament. He loves to hug us and lick our noses, which is utterly adorable, and he charmed the CFA judges this season, gaining his Champion title as well as CFA’s Best Russian Blue in the UK, impressing them with his scrumptious, plushy coat with lots of silver tipping, wonderful deep green eyes and a lovely wide ear-set. This boy is such a sweet, affectionate little baby who always greets us with purrs and cuddles, and who gets along with everyone.
Blue conquered hearts with his charming and winsome ways, lying back in our arms for belly strokes and generally being the most enchanting companion anyone could ask for. His kittens are delightful, and Blue is now retired to his forever loving pet family now.
