What Breed Is My Cat?

Our cat's name is Skylar and she was a stray kitten that we took in. She's now 7-8 years old. We live in south Texas. I included various pictures, we would really like to know the closest breed she relates to. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Well - she certainly looks like a well-loved baby!
I like that she has a lot of white and that is not so with all calicos.

  • I have had several cats and never knew their breed but I believe that I may have ordered a DNA kit for more than one if the kits had been available during their lifetime.
  • DNA test kits are available at most pet stores and online as well as your vet and some are not overly expensive.
  • Here is one test that costs $45. You can Google for additional companies.
  • www.catdnatest.org/
  • Wish I could wave a magic wand and say "she is ????" but I cannot do that but I hope someone will answer with more informative information.

What a sweet face! Hugs!

I had a friend who showed cats, and she always politely corrected me about breed vs color. She said calico is a color pattern and many breeds have this coloring. A breed site is http://cattime.com

A wiki on color is en.m.wikipedia.org/.../Calico_cat

Your sweetie looks like a mix. I am not as good with cat breeds as dogs. Maybe your vet has some ideas based on lines, teeth, jaw, ears and tail!

Enjoy her!!

Possibly your beautiful calico-colored cat is a mixed breed with Persian, Himalayan or Maine Coon as part of the mix. Looking through the breeds at www.cat-breeds-encyclopedia.com/Long-haired-cat-breeds.html might help you determine breed or combination of breeds Skylar is.

What we know for sure is that Skylar is a long haired dilute calico. Dilute means the colors are muted. Calico means she has 3 colors, white black and buff. To really know what breeding she may have you will need to get a dna kit to test her.

I can take a guess that she has persian in her from the long dense coat, her short wide face and compact body. I would guess she is more than 50% persian. A beautiful girl.

Definitely she is a calico which as stated is a common cat pattern as it is a mix of two different colourings in cat, a genetic genotype occuring only in females (because xx chromosomes)

I would guess Himalayan because she does nto seem to have the pug face of most Persians
