When Rina Arai isn’t working in our Production Control Department, she’s usually hanging out with her Cookie, an eleven year old Russian Blue cat and Takigawa’s October Pet of the Month.
The Russian Blue cat is a breed famous for its amazing coat colors; that usually range from shimmering silver to a darker slate gray. From a distance, sometimes the short dense coat can take on a bluish note, hence the name. The breed’s origins can be traced to Arkhangelsk, a port city in Russia. In addition to their rich coat, Russian Blues have bright green eyes and mauve colored paws.
