What breed is Grumpy Cat? — 32 Comments

  1. Actually that is how new breeds are started. A natural mutation will pop up in a litter out of regular parents. There are multiple forms of dwarfism. She could have the other form that is different from the Munchkins form. Bowed legs are a problems in some dwarf cats. She may have bowed legs and that is why she wobbles when she walks. Our Napoleons are from a cross between a Munchkin and a Persian or Exotic. So their faces are semi flat from the Persian parent.

  2. I think Grumpy Cat looks like a Napoleon which is a breed that is from the Munchkins bred to Persians. Napoleons are beautiful cats and very affectionate and playful.

  3. I have a half-feral mackeral tabby and his markings are gorgeous! Problem is he doesn’t like ‘new’ things, including cell phones, cameras, carrots, anything that he doesn’t recognize right off sends him skittering behind the couch so it is really hard to get a photo. The dad cat does indeed have those same markings, only like you said, it is faded in his coat for whatever reason. Still 😀 kitties, they be awesome!

  4. My favorite quote (of many) comes from the crazy cat lady on the Simpsons. I think she was running for office or something. “Cats in your hair! Cats in your pants! Everybody needs more cats!” (or that is how I remember that quote :D)

    • Hi Suzanne. Nice one. I think the “cat in your pants!” is a version of a well-known phrase (certainly in the UK) which is “ants in your pants”. The quote that she made has a certain crazy quality about it, which I like.

  5. Her parents are gorgeous and so is she and her brother too, it’s sad she can’t live an ordinary cat’s life just because her appearance is different.

    • yes – it’s very sad, she deserves to retire immediately and only be given the best quality of care and food etc since she has earned so much money. She should get the best no matter the cost.

  6. BTW – there is a very recent experimental breed called Snowshoe Siamese though it’s very different to the Snowshoe. The Snowshoe Siamese is a Siamese conformation cat with seal points (currently the only colour bred) and white mitts. It’s much frowned on by Siamese breeders as the mitts are too reminiscent of “white toes” – a fault that has been bred out of modern Siamese cats. I’m guessing the website used “Siamese” not realising the correct term is “colourpoint”, and used “snowshoe” instead of the correct term “mitted.”

    • Yes, a pure accident and it just happened to result in a cat that amuses people. Many genetic accidents don’t. They make the cat look less attractive and where do those cats end up? It is not fair.

  7. Wow – Pokey is very cute looking indeed. I realize it’s a boring observation but in this case I just had to say it. I’m glad GC has a friend to be with.

      • Definitely does, which shows us that this coat appearance is not that unusual. I think Piki is actually a calico (tortie and white) because there is some faint orange there. Beautiful cat.

        • Ye she has alot of colours and tones – more than most – and she has the dark patches around her eyes yet white in between on the nose. She’s a wonderful kind and gentle lady who belonged to an old couple who were forced to move out and had to live in a place where no cats were allowed. So Piki has been staying with my ex in Slovenia for a couple of years by now. The older couple don’t seem very stable sadly – with oone going in and out of the mental hospital – they have serious paranoia and it’s very sad. Piki (it means little in Slovenian – actually Piki is short for Pikica, but the letter ‘c’ is pronounced ‘ts’ in Slovenian so it ends up sounding like ‘Pikitsa’) never really got in with the group of cats and my ex since it was thought she would leave again soon. Now I am more worried the couple will want her back – I worry that she won’t be safe. I’ve asked if I can take her – and the plan is I will take her since there’s a new little black cat rescued from the street there now and I am tired of seeing Piki without her ‘own’ family as it were so I’ve insisted she come here as soon as possible. She is very nice and I think she will be ok with my current 3 but one never knows. I’d feel much better having her so she can get the love and attention she needs – she loves me alot because I always pay her special attention when I am there since I feel sorry for her being a loner and never wanting or getting cuddles – when in fact she is very cuddly once she opens up as she does with me.

          Getting her here is a nightmare – 12 hours on the train like Lilly did but Piki isn’t as tough as Lilly I think so it’s going to be hard.

          If only they could be given an effective sleeping pill – so they wake up at the other end without the stress.

          • I am impressed with your concern and willingness to take her on. 12 hrs on a train sounds tough. I have never tried Rescue Remedy on a cat to calm her but it is recommended. I am not sure how it is administered either.

            She is a very beautiful cat.
