My cat…a mix? — 10 Comments

  1. hello everybody,

    Thanks a lot of the nice comments! I always thought my little girl was beautiful, it fills my mother’s (ahem) heart with pride that it’s not just me thinking so πŸ˜‰

    I suppose we’ll never know what breeds she has in her, but it’s true that I prefer non-purebred cats, as indeed their immune system is better and also I prefered to rescue a cat than to buy one that was bred purely for the profit (or at least that’s what you hear a lot).

    I’ll attach a picture of her sleeping πŸ™‚

    • This is a really nice photo. Pretty cat. I am pleased that you live in Belgium because I like to hear from people from parts of the world other than the USA and UK.

      Are you Belgium? If you are you write bloody good English πŸ˜‰

      • I am indeed Belgian, thanks πŸ™‚
        Thought I would let you know because I imagined most people that come here would be from England or America πŸ˜‰

        • Sorry I mispelled “Belgian”. Silly me. You are better at English than me πŸ˜‰

          Yes, most visitors are American and English. We also have a good number from India.

          I really appreciate you visiting. Perhaps one day you might consider doing an article about Belgium cats.

  2. I love the two dots above her mouth and the heart!!! I would love to have tile that matches her grey/grey-blue splotch tabby markings. Very fetching colors. She is not a pure bred, Michael got it right on the classic tabby. Personally, I prefer non purebreds. They have stronger immune systems and less chance of having genetic disorders. Also (as someone pointed out here I believe) they are natures version of the cat. Aren’t they the true cats? We pick a breed and we keep it pure, but it stagnates in a way. The ‘street cat’ (as I think of them) have a chance to grow based on environment, etc. Plus she is just beautiful. Please share more pix!

  3. P.S. You can upload more pictures in a comment. You will see the guide on going it below the comment box. I only one picture in the media folder and used that for the post.

  4. Hi Stephanie, Thanks for writing about your cat Nala. Nice story. I enjoyed reading about Nala.

    She is a random bred cat. She is a blotched (also called “classic”) brown tabby cat. Very nice pattern (heart shaped in the bulls-eye centre).

    Her ears are larger than average. Sweet face.

    Random bred cats are a breed mashup. Purebred cats are also a breed mashup. That sounds crazy but I wrote about that on this page.

    The DNA of the original cat breeds, say Siamese cats from Siam (Thailand) or British Short hairs from England has spread far and wide and is found in many random bred cats.

    So, I say that Nala will have some characteristics of some purebred cats (the large ears for example) but is random bred.

    The best part of the story is your obvious love for her and the care you give her which comes across in your post.
