Platina Luna Blade Runner, a 1½-year-old Russian Blue owned by Rob Miller and Teresa Keiger of Greensboro, N.C., took top honors Sunday at the 2008 CFA-Iams Cat Championship at Madison Square Garden. By winning over judges with his gray coat and green eyes, Runner became the first Russian Blue to claim Best in Show honors.
“The color was phenomenal, the eyes and the coat both beautiful, the best Russian Blue I’ve ever seen,” said Darrell Newkirk, a judge with the Cat Fanciers’ Association.
