More details about the Nebelung

Nebelung: Origins and history

Their origins are the same as those of the Russian Blue and, like most other breeds, they are quite fuzzy. The latter came from Russia by boat at the end of the 14th century and was reportedly raised by the British.
The Nebelung was born in the United States, thanks to Siegfried and Brunhilde, the pair of cats belonging to Cora Cobb. Links are made with other blue haired cats coming from Russia. The first Nebelung of the Netherlands, in the 90's, came from the same country. A Dutch kitten proved to be a bearer of the "long hair" gene, confirming that the Russian Blue can carry this recessive gene, which does not necessarily express itself.
Currently, this is a rare breed, with only a few breeders around the world. In France, for example, the first kittens were born in 2008.

Nebelung: Purchase price

On average, the price of a Nebelung kitten is approximately £100, the price often varies according to the lineage, the breeder, the age or even the sex. For the monthly budget, it will cost an average of £25/month to support the needs of the Nebelung, by offering a quality diet and making sure to keep your cat healthy.
