Grey Cat Breeds

Love of the looks of a silvery grey cat? So do we. There’s just something about grey cat breeds that make them stand out from the rest.

Maybe it’s their genteel, distinguished aura. Or perhaps their aristocratic bearing. Or maybe it’s the fact that their refined looks transfer over into their personalities as well. As you’ll soon find out, many grey cat breeds rank among the most well-mannered, sweetest cats in the feline world.

Coat color may be only fur-deep but when it comes to grey cats, there seems to be a correlation between the color grey and a sort of introverted personality. This doesn’t apply to all grey-coated beauties but many of them are every bit as dignified as they look.

As such, if you’re looking for a beautiful grey cat to keep you company as you write, chill on the sofa, or settle down for a good read – you’ll find the purrfect kitty for you here.

Of course, not all of them are content to live a life of quiet solitude and for those of you looking for a more playful cat, there’s one or two grey cats that fit the bill as well.

Whatever it is you’re looking for in a lovely grey cat, you’re sure to find it on this list. So without further ado, here’s a roundup of grey cats in several shades of grey, from silvery grey to blue grey.

British Shorthair

You knew I’d rank top on this list, didn’t you. Well, I do have a tendency to rank high on many, many lists. For example, with my round, fluffy teddy-bear looks, it’s no wonder I m the most popular cat in Britain – and not just the most popular grey cat, I mean most popular of all cats. I’ve also been proclaimed to be one of the cutest cats in the world.

But it’s not just my looks that keep me ranking on the world’s most popular cat charts, either ? I am a well-mannered, genteel feline with a zen-like disposition toward life and fellow creatures. A true pleasure to be around and no trouble at all. Read more about the British Shorthair.

korat cat info

As you can clearly see, I’m a beautiful grey cat with emerald green eyes. And ‘though I’m not vain at all, I do love being admired.

Yup, I thrive when I’m the center of attention. And I’ll use everything I’ve got ? including my range of vocal chords and above-average intelligence ? to make sure yours is focused on me. And yes, that does mean you should immediately stop what you’re doing and rub my belly, stroke my coat, and engage in other forms of affectionate worship.

Oh, I m not just sociable with grown-up humans, either ? I m get on with all beings. As such, I have no problems bonding with small humans and even other pets. I m incredibly patient with children and will choose to walk away when handled too roughly instead of retaliating with my claws.

Yes, I m a gentle cat. But the thing is ? I m also a jealous cat. Especially when it comes to other pets. The limelight is mine, so if you’re planning on seeing other pets, make sure they know that I am and will always be your favorite. Read more about the Korat.

nebelung cat

I’m an eye-catching, ethereal sort of grey cat and my dignified looks give my personality away. I m every bit as genteel and reserved as my dignified looks suggest and prefer to save my love for just one or two special humans rather than everyone.

I m not anti-social, mind you, I have no problem getting along with other beings. I m just choosier than most and prefer to bond with those who are near and dear to me. But strangers? No, I don’t care for them very much, especially if they’re loud.

I feel the same about non-humans as well. Though I can easily get along with other pets ? especially other felines I can take a long time to get used to dogs and other animals that tend to be a bit noisy.

Perhaps that’s because I am simply not fond of noise.

I m a low-maintenance, quiet kitty who appreciates the same of her humans, but just keep in mind that I m also a sensitive cat and my affections need to be reciprocated. Read more about the Nebelung.

Chartreux cat breed

Bonjour. I am officially the preferred grey cat breed of great writers and thinkers. Yup, my refined, well-mannered ways has resulted in a long and illustrious history of association with the cr me de la cr me of French intellectual society.

But as for me, I m as much of a doer as a thinker. Of course, I value privacy and I’ll respect your boundaries. This means no following you around the house or other stalker-like behavior. But I’m also an active, social sort of cat and will never shy away from attention and a good petting session.

I’m also a top-notch mouser so if you’ve gots a problem, just let me know. It’ll be taken care of before you can say purr. Read more about the Chartreux.

Russian Blue

russian blue info

The first thing people notice about me is my shimmering, silvery blue grey coat and my brilliant green eyes.

Who can blame them? It’s a knockout combination.

So is my personality. For starters, I’m a highly independent feline. Unlike some needy felines that can get antsy and restless if they feel they’ve been left alone for too long, I have the useful ability to entertain myself when my guardians are busy or away.

But at the same time, I become very devoted to and affectionate with the few special humans in my life. I may not like strangers but I’ll absolutely love my humans. And I’ll never resort to noisy, annoying caterwauling to get your attention. I’m a gentle, introverted sort of kitty so expect to have me follow you around our home to finally settle in your lap and have my belly scratched, my ears stroked, and maybe even go for a shoulder ride.

My beautiful 2 short haired black cats (they were brother and sister) with one spot of white on their bellies size of a half dollar. Had 3 black kitties just like them. And one absolutely beautiful long fluffy pewter grey kitty. Same litter. No other male was available…not even the postcat Lol
He is so different from the others not sure what breed he maybe. Very much aloner will play with others but just acts totally different..
Would love to send photo and get your thoughts.

Do any have stripes?
I have one that looks like the Russian Blue’s face, but he has slightly visible, lighter color, wide stripes on his sides, but not up to his back.
By the way, the question marks throughout the story are annoying.

My cat was in a litter outside where we lived…he always was on his own…he came in out of the storm and followed my black cat into the sliding door…he has followed me and never left my side he even risked 2dogs and got stuck in a tree before I rescued him.. he isn’t scared of any dogs that chase him …he actually is loved by dogs…he picked me to be his mum…I love my grey cat…but I think he’s just an ordinary grey cat that has followed me everywhere…and he’s so special to me…he thinks he’s the boss of the dogs …lol

My beautiful fur baby boy died, he was only a year old. He was blocked, couldn’t pee. Unfortunately it was too late for him 🙁 we rescued him from a ditch on the side of the road with a sister. They were only about 5-6 weeks old when found. My family is heartbroken over the loss of this sweet, beautiful, fun and loving baby boy. So sad. Please be careful what you feed your babies. Male cats are more susceptible to the urinary block. If there was some way I could show you a picture he looked almost exactly like the first cat pictured. He would sit with one elbow propped up again similar to the picture. He was very beautiful. I miss him so much, I think I loved him more than any animal ever. I am crushed.
