You story makes me mad!
I am a Russian Blue, but my mom found me in a pound.
Just because you were "found" does NOT make you a "street cat" and you know, street cats are pretty danged cool if you ask me. Some of the smartest kitties I know come from the 'street' but that doesn't mean that they are less desireable in any way.
The woman your mom contacted sounds like an ignorant purebreed snob to me. There are MANY reasons why a pure RB could be found somewhere (although not at all common). What a nasty lady to act in such a way.
Aside from all that ranting...
The RB's most distinct feature is easy to spot- or FEEL is more like it. We have a double coat of fur. Our inner coat is a light colored fur, short and soft and makes out outer coat puff up a wee bit. The outer coat has silvery tipped hairs that almost appear as though we are shimmering when we walk. The color difference from base to tip should be VERY distinct- as opposite as black and white. Our fur feels SUPER SILKY when we are stroked. Your mom should be able to draw lines in your fur with her fingers *giggle*. MANY shades of blue are common in our breed, but the lighter the coat, the more desired among breeders and those who show. We should NOT have any markings such as rings or white patches and ONLY kittens can have 'ghost tabby' markings. Our paw pads are generally mauve to lavendar, but can be pink. Our voice is soft when we use it and we are very affectionate kitties. We have wedge shaped heads, wide spread ears and of course, our eyes are emerald green.

ANY part of RB you kitties have in you is a blessing- no matter how small an amount. You are ALL Blue-blooded royality in your own way.
