He's pretty big

He's pretty big He acts more like he's on the prowl, like a lion almost Bella

I have a beautiful multi-color female cat (Bella), that just turned a year old in July.

A friend of mine brought her cat (Symba) for a play date. She left her cat and never took him back!

So Symba is about 4 months younger than Bella and well now they have kittens, which were born 8/26/2010.

She had 3 gold and 3 multi-color. The male cat is very weird. He acts more like he's on the prowl, like a lion almost.

He's pretty big considering that he is not even a year old. He is very strong and long and is very muscular all around, his neck is big sometimes I call him muscle neck or a jock.

His eyes are a yellow gold and he is a pale gold/bleach blonde color with darker gold pattern designs. He meows very masculine, kinda creepy sometimes and he is aggressively affectionate.

He wants to follow me everywhere I go and jumps higher than the average cat, his paws are big. He is not even a year old and he is about 15 pounds of solid muscle.

Do you think you can tell me if by any chance you might know what species my cat is.

I have uploaded pictures of him. You can e-mail me at Maria_lvngstn@yahoo.com.

Hi Maria... thanks for visiting and asking. Bella, the multi-coloured cat is, as far as I can tell, a semi-longhaired calico cat. Calico means tortoiseshell (new window) and white. She is a mixed breed or random bred cat - meaning not a purebred cat but a lovely looking cat nonetheless.

The big boy is just that. An athletic mixed breed cat but not a purebred cat in my opinion.

This is not to criticize - far from it. Without wishing to upset breeders, random bred cats are often better, taken as a whole, than purebred cats.

He is big and strong. He is healthy. And I love him....:).

His coat is a dilute red mackerel tabby and white.

Take care Maria and love to your cats.

P.S. All domestic cats are one species - domesticated wildcats - felis silvestrus catus

Bella to me looks a lot like my Misu, who is a dilute Calico. Simba I am not sure, but he is also a beautiful cat. You are so blessed. Enjoy and as I see they are well taken care of, keep up the good work. I am certainly no expert.

and if you e-mail I can send you a pic of Misu just to show you.

    • She is a super looking cat. I have presumed she is female because to me she looks female. She’s a random bred cat in my view although she may have some Maine Coon genes in her.
