About the Russian

Russians are friendly and playful, and adapt readily to any family situation. These cats have no difficulty accepting other animals within the household and are patient with children.

Russians are easy to handle and have no special demands, however, if they are allowed outdoors it’s best to provide them with a safe, enclosed area to avoid any injuries beyond their home.
