What breed is my cat?
In late November 2009, I adopted this adorable male kitten. We named him Charlie.
I've been wanting to know what breed he is.
I think he's an Egyptian Mau mix but I'm not sure.
He's really hyper, he runs super fast, and he's really strong.
He has spots on his back, and broken lines on his legs. He has a belly flap, too.
Hi Cassie..(is that the right name?).. thanks for visiting and asking.
You may have seen other pages on the subject of what breed is my cat. I nearly always come up with the same answer which can be summarised on this page, written on the subject, generally: What Breed is my cat
The article referred to would conclude that your cat is a random bred cat or moggie. He is a red tabby and white cat and he looks very distinguished and alert. I like his looks.
I think, though, that you may be right about Charlie being part Egytian Mau. This would be quite possible as the Egyptian Mau is a domesticated African wildcat at heart and one of the earliest domestic cats. I am sure the genes present in the Egyptian Mau have spread far and wide.
Other than guessing what genes might be present it is impossible to say, I am afraid, as even purebred cats that look like purebred cats are not purebred unless there is a documented pedigree of purebred parents.
It doesn't matter as I am sure you realise. Charlie is handsome and he is athletic. You can't do better than that and even the ugliest and slowest are equal in the eyes of all true cat lovers.
