These are great looking cats. They were bred and photographed by Maxim Zorin who lives in Saint Petersburg. And what is interesting is that this city it is about 1,000 kilometers from the place of origin of the Russian Blue: Archangel (Arkhangelsk) on the north coast of Russia. It is a 15 hour drive from Arkhangelsk to Saint Petersburg (a bit of trivia).
One aspect of these kittens is that they look very well bred, spot on in terms of the bred standard. Although as mentioned in the caption, the color balance is a bit off!
3 Russian Blue kittens in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Photographed and bred by Maxim Zorin. Note: I think that the colour balance is slightly off. The images a bit too pink. Sorry about that but I don’t have the software on my computer at the moment to correct the colour balance actually.
