9 – Russian Blue
A beautiful and elegant cat, the Russian Blue is also a minimal shedder. Generally, this breed will have an annual (or perhaps biennial) shedding extravaganza that lasts a couple of weeks, then go back to its usual lack of shedding. Large emerald eyes are set off against the unique short bluish-silver coat of this breed, making it unmistakable. Very gentle, but sometimes shy around loud noises or people it doesn’t know, the Russian Blue bonds tightly with its human friends.
When you combine a winning personality, good looks, and lack of shedding, it’s hard for anyone to go wrong if they decide to have a Russian Blue join their family.
