I don’t Know What Breed Sunny Is
(florence oregan usa)
My cat is sort of a faded orange/yellow. I think its an Egyptian Mau because he has sort of a pouch of fat in between his thighs and looks a lot like one. His mom was a Manx but I don't know who the dad is. Can you help?
Hi Megan: Thanks for asking. We get quite of lot of visitors who ask about their cats and whether they are a breed and if so what cat breed.
The vast majority of cats are not purebred cats and Sunny falls into this category. He looks like an orange tabby. If his mom was a Manx he won't be an Egyptian Mau.
People who keep purebred cats know it because the cat will have a recorded history of parentage (a pedigree) which proves it. Sometimes it might not be clear but it nearly always is.
