The account of the Nebelung breed started in the mid 1980s when Cora Cobb, a software engineer, gave a dark homegrown shorthair named Elsa to her child as a blessing. Elsa later mated with a Russian Blue, delivering a litter of five beat up shorthairs. Be that as it may, there was one cat which had long blue hair. Cobb kept this inquisitive male feline named Siegfried, and when Elsa brought forth Brunhilde, another blue longhair, she additionally took it home. These two felines would be the principal Nebelungs. 

Cobb named the variety Nebelung, which signifies "animals of the fog" in German, on account of their remarkable appearance. Also, in the wake of reaching The International Cat Association's (TICA) hereditary qualities executive, Dr. Solveig Pflueger, she was encouraged to compose the variety standard. She decided to keep it almost indistinguishable from the Russian Blue norm, with the exception of the part depicting its jacket length. 

The Nebelung was perceived by TICA in 1987, however Russian Blue fanciers were reluctant in tolerating the new variety. In addition, they were hesitant in crossbreeding their felines, making it harder for Cobb proceed with the Nebelung line. 

At long last, in 1988, the proprietor of Supreme Grand Champion Vladimir of Castlecats consented to offer her a Russian Blue, to cross with one of Brunhilde's little girls. From that point forward, the Nebelung expanded in number and popularity dramatically. Notwithstanding, it still can't seem to be perceived by the Cat Fanciers Association - something Nebelung fanciers desire to redress in the coming years.
