Overview of Nebelung

They may look like a Russian Blue with long fur, but they are so much more than that! As the only longhaired kitty that comes exclusively in blue, the Nebelung cat is a new and rare breed whose name is inspired by Wagner's Ring Cycle, a.k.a. The Ring of the Nibelung. Despite their German name (which translates roughly to fog), these fluffy kitties resulted from a black-haired cat having kittens with a Russian Blue in Denver, Colorado. Their blue coat and intense green eye coloring may take up to two years to develop. The Nebelung is a medium-sized cat (7-15 lbs) whose coat requires daily grooming to prevent matting, especially their plumed tail and tufted paws.

The Nebelung is like a gray/blue cloud in the form of a cat. They dislike loud noises and sudden changes, so they may not be the best choice for small children and prefer to bond to one or two people. If startled, they are likely to disappear like a puff of smoke. A Nebelung kitten is a gentle, quiet cat who is not destructive by nature, and their sense of humor is sure to entertain any cat lover.
