I adopted this kitten back in October from the SSPCA after he had been abandoned. He has been put down as a Domestic Short Hair, but I think he has the look of a Siamese and wonder if he could be a mix? What do you think?

There is no way to know for sure without a DNA test. Unless you want to breed the cat, I would just love him for who he is and save the money.

I'm not going to breed him and I couldn't love him more, I just wondered if he was a mix Siamese as his ears and right side of his face seem to be balding, making him look more like one than before but it could just be that because he is pure white on his ears and face, his skin is showing through more.

I honestly don't see siamese. I think you have a domestic shorthair. Pretty cat.

The common marks of the Siamese are the elongated face, longer ears, and of course the colouring. They often have blue eyes too. But the other super interesting thing about SIameses are their communicative style. They talk, yowl, yodel, really loudly - they are super awesome like that: https://www.you  ch?v=cUyt_GNrF1U

Your cat's face COULD be the longer face of the Siamese, as well as the longish ears, though this might all fall back into proportion when he gets older. But, especially if he's very loud and insistent communicator, it's possible.

Yeah, my cat had a pointy face and huge ears when she was little, but just grew into them. Now her face is rounded.

Siamese tend to be loud and talkative, that's true. They also have dexterous paws.

I think this cat's paws seem normal. And he'll probably grow into the ears.

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.

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.

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

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?

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

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!
