In the middle 1980s, Cora Cobb who owned two cats similar to the Russian Blue, but with medium length coats, a male Siegfried and a female Brunhilde, decided to start a new cat breed because they were so beautiful. After consulting with the American Cat Association’s geneticist, Dr. Solveig Pfleuger, she bean a breeding program resulting in the Nebelung, which looks like a Russian Blue, but has a longer coat. Nebelung means “Creature of the Mist” which probably refers to the color of its coat.
