The Cat has a long history. It first appeared in England in 1875 and was first shown to the public in 1912. By 1900, the breed found its way into the United States. The breed almost became extinct during the World War II because its breeding was almost stopped. However, by 1940s, there was an attempt by breeders to save the breed by using other breeds to boost the waning gene. In 1960s, a group of breeders from Britain united to restore the cat. This is how the original Russian blue cat disappeared and instead a cross breed appeared on the scene.  This cross breed eventually received recognition in the United States by the Cat Fancier Association, American Ca Fancier’s association and international Cat association.
