High Flying Nala
I have a cat named Nala and I have looked for her breed for two years. The animal hospital told my mother Nala was a special breed of cat but my mom can't remember what it was. I have seen two cat breeds that look a lot like her and her twin son (he got hit by a car I miss my little tripper) one of them was a moggie the other was the weird o something cat.
She's very loving but at night she's like a wildfire and will attack anything that moves under the blankets (she's at least 3 years old).
She's also shy and only me and who ever is sitting on the recliner (Nala LOVES the recliner) can ever get close to her. She never sits down when I'm around unless I hold.
Now here's the funny part...A couple days after I got her and named her Nala she was racing around my room and my mom (note: I'm only 11) kept saying we should have named her speedy.
Well, my door flew shut and right when she was about to run in to it (I was coming to the rescue) she jumped way over the heads of my mom and me and did a back flip and landed on my bed (which at the time she usually had to climb - I even made her steps to get on).
Now here's a picture of our love time. See if you can find her breed please!!!!!
Hi Cassi... Great to hear from you. Well, if Nala is a purebred cat (and she might not be) you have told me she is agile (that amazing back flip) and energetic.
Nala has a golden colour and her hair is short. And she has the classic "M" tabby mark on her forehead but she does not have any obvious tabby markings except some banding, it seems, on her tail. There may be some hidden ones that I can't see from the picture, perhaps on the legs.
All the signs indicate that Nala is an Abyssinian cat. In fact of all the purebred cats this is probably the only breed that she might be as nothing else matches, except the Chausie, which is a wild cat hybrid. The Chausie is a rare cat.
If she is not purebred Abyssinian she might be a Abyssinian mix. Sometimes it seems that moggie cats (random bred cats) throw up a cat in litters that look like purebred cats. Moggie cats cannot be purebred but they can have the appearance one. Here is a story about a Chartreux look-a-like.
Abyssinian cats are very popular, the 4th most popular cat based on this website's poll. They have a long history.
If your cat is a moggie, random bred cat, she is just as good, just as beautiful, as it really makes no difference. She is still Nala, the cat you love.
