Riverlight History

Riverlight Cattery started breeding the Russian Blue in the early 80's and though we are dedicated to developing the "non-blue" Russian we still maintain our lines of blues. 

Riverlight NikitaRecently we were able to trace two of our current cats back to the original cats imported by Mrs Carew-Cox in the 1890s.  One of those cats is Riverlight Nikita pictured to the left.

We are very grateful to the Pawpeds website  and to Kirsten Huinink who maintains the Russian and Nebelung data.

See below for details of line our Russian Blues through the generations going back to the original cats imported into England in the 1890s.

Bloodlines

Nikita is just one of our cats able to trace her descent all the way back to Lingpopo, one of Mrs Carew-Cox's cats imported into England in the late 19th century.
