I have a kitten and I'm pretty sure she's part Siamese or fully I'm not sure though. She has the blue eyes and markings of one.

She looks like a seal point Siamese mixed with a fluffy something!

Thank you! I was trying to find what type of Siamese she could be. Her mother abounded her and her siblings so I never saw her or the dad.

She appears to have long hair, so she may be Himalayan. I cant see her paws, but if they are white she may be a Birman.

Why does her eyes stay so yucky? I clean them every day! I even got her meds for them and they still are yucky! Is that just her type breed that makes them do that??

What Siamese mix is my cat?

I'm not sure, but I think your cat is what they call a "Lilac point Siamese". Perhaps googling cat breeds would help.

I meant to add that your cat is very pretty, and looks very sweet. Good luck with your cat!

For 2 years now, I have been trying to figure out what breed my cat is. I know it is a Siamese mix, but I do not know with what. His mom or dad had black just like three of his siblings, except his sister, who looked just like him. So, what breed is my cat?

Your cat looks like he has genes from siamese (lilac point) and tabby (the stripes) Very pretty cat. Also it is possible for kittens in the same litter from the same mother to have different fathers. So sibs can be very different.

I have 3 cats we've rescued from here, there, and everywhere. I can't seem to figure out any breeds for them. Where can I find this information?

You can click on each cat breed for a larger photo view and find out details about the breed to be sure you've chosen the correct breed to identify your cats:

Keep in mind that the majority of the time cats will be a mixture of breeds unless they are pedigreed.

Ok, thanks! I'm more than 150% sure they are not pedigreed. I rescued each one from the parking lot at my apartments in the rain, cold or after some of the neighborhood kids terrorized them. I'm sure they are mutts! Thanks for your help!
