We Rescued a Cat That Looks Like a Siamese
We found Luna a year ago, on the street and starving. We brought her home in order to find her a permanent home. We ended up keeping her.
She is the only female cat I have ever owned and has made a nice addition to our family. We also have two male cats that are long standing family members.
Hi.... thanks for visiting and asking. As first glance Luna looks like a Snowshoe cat that has been deliberately bred and which did not turn out to type (appearance) well enough for the breeder to keep and sell and so abandoned her.

Now that is complete speculation so please don't count on it but I think that it is a fair assessment.
Luna has a traditional Siamese appearance but with white spotting on the paws and face, which has masked the usual Siamese points. This is exactly what happens in the Snowshoe cat.
The white masking is effected by the white spotting gene imported from a bicolor cat.
OK that's my assessment for what it is worth!
