What Breed Is My Cat?
Figuring out what breed your cat is can be a tricky task. Cats come in all shapes and sizes, making it difficult to determine the exact breed of your pet. Fortunately, there are resources available for you to help identify the characteristics that could point to certain breeds or mixes of breeds.
Identifying Your Cat’s Characteristics
The most obvious place to start when trying to figure out what breed your cat is by looking at its physical features like coat color, texture and pattern; eye shape and size; tail length; body type; and face structure. Certain combinations of these traits may point toward specific feline breeds, such as Persian cats having longer fur than Siamese cats or Maine Coons having larger ears than British Shorthairs. Comparing photos of known breeds will give you an idea if any match up with your cat’s appearance.
Consider Your Cat’s Behavior
In addition to physical characteristics, observing how your cat behaves can also offer clues about its pedigree. Some behavioral traits are linked with certain breeds – for example, Ragdolls have been known for their laid-back personalities while Abyssinians are typically more active and energetic (although individual cats from any breed may vary). If either parent was a purebred then chances are that some of these inherited behaviors will be evident in their offspring too!
Contact Local Rescue Groups For Help
If none of the above methods provide a conclusive answer as to which particular feline family line your kitty belongs too then contacting local rescue groups might be worth considering – they tend not only have expert knowledge but access databases containing records on many pedigreed pets too! It’s possible they know exactly where he or she came from so don’t hesitate reach out – even if nothing else comes back it still gives you some peace mind knowing who brought them into this world originally (which could include other relatives!).
