Our new kitty/1st cat ever! She's a year old, we adopted her from a family who said she is a purebred Russian Blue. She's very mellow, sweet and loves to pur. We are slowly introducing her to our 95lb mastiff! She swatted him a few times and we've been keeping them separate. Today she came out of the room by herself and they ignored each other. So we are making progress. Our main reason for getting a Russian blue is my husband is allergic to cats. He owned a Russian blue when he was younger and wasn't allergic. My daughter has been obsessed with getting cat for years. So this kitty is her early Christmas present. She's so so happy! They are already inseparable ????
