My name is Angel and I really am a Russian Blue angel. At least, my mother thinks I'm an angel. She says I'm the most purr-fect kitty ever. Some of the adjectives she uses to describe my purr-sonality are pretty, cute, smart, beautiful, precious, adorable, darling, delightful, lovable, charming, and priceless. She uses these words most of the time because that's the way I am most of the time. Now, please don't think I'm stuck on myself ... I just like to tell it like it is. Plain and simple ... well, like I said before ... I'm just a little angel.
I was born on March 17, 1995 ... St. Patrick's Day ... and that stuff about "the luck of the Irish" is true. My mother says she is so lucky that I came to live with her. She loves me dearly. I am strictly a pet and have never been shown at one of those fancy-pantsy shows. But, I surely do know how to show off.
I love posing and, in five years, my mother has accumulated five albums of over 1,000 photos of me. If you continue down this page, you'll find a gallery of my purr-ty pictures. Now, I don't like to brag but, plain and simple, I'm just "the cat's meow." And, so, for neow ... meow, meow, meow!
For anyone who has never been owned by a Russian Blue, here is a general description.
RUSSIAN BLUE: A hardy breed of shorthaired cat, known for the silvery, seal-like luster of its double-coated fur that feels like fine silk. The coat is very dense and plush and is light to lavender blue with silver-tipped guard hairs which give the fur its luster. The ears are large and slightly pointed with a very light covering of fur, making them appear almost transparent. The tail is long and tapering. The eyes are set wide apart and are vivid green. Russian Blues have a very quiet voice, a shy demeanor, and are reserved with people. They bear four kittens per litter and both parents raise them. They originated in Russia and Russians still consider them good omens. They were first called "Archangel cat" because sailors leaving the Russian port of Archangel brought them back to Britain with them in the 1860s. Russian Blues are rare ... there are no other cats like them. Every cat lover should have a Russian Blue. They greet you with their "smile," adore you while awake and later sleep by your side. What more could a cat lover want?

"Ain't I purr-ty?"
My precious Angel died at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 11, 2001. My grief is indescribable. The only thing that gives me peace is knowing that this perfectly sinless creature will be waiting for me in heaven where she will have no more pain. Praise the Name of our Wonderful Lord!
Learn where Scripture says that all animals will be in heaven.
"Angel was and is special and now sits
on a satin pillow, wearing a crown."
