Red face Lynx point with white mitts?

Hi, I asked in my intro thread if anyone had any ideas on what breeds Lily my new 4-5 month old foster kitten may be. I didn't get much feedback on the thread so I decided to post a more specific thread. I'm going to call her a Seal Lynx Point DSH, but I'm curious to hear some opinions/guesses on her mix.

She's a very affectionate and rambunctious little thing and it only took her a week to settle in with my resident cat Loki and the 3 other foster kittens.

My theory is that she has some Ragdoll/Siamese in her, and of course DSH as well. I am aware that pointed cats can occur in many breeds and mixes, and she certainly can't be considered a pedigree of any sort without papers, even if she looks like one. I'm just really curious and google searching has given me cats that look similar, but not quite like her, mostly, I haven't found any short haired lynx points with white mitts and a faded mackerel tabby body pattern like hers.

Here are some pictures, please, tell me what you see in her! Even if only just better describing her colour/pattern for me.










Thanks!

Her breed is DSH (Domestic Short Hair). Unless you know her parents or have papers, you will not know her breed. In my opinion, her coloring is mostly a cream classic tabby with a bulls-eye pattern. She does have darker tabby marking as well on the tail and head. Except for her beautiful blue eyes, I don't see any indicators of pointed markings on her whatsoever.

I don't know a whole lot about breeds and coloring, but I can see why she appears pointed with the darker tail and ears. It looks like her feet would also be a darker color if she didn't have the white mittens. Love the tabby pattern as well. That is not mackerel tabby though but actually classic tabby. Mackerel tabby is solid or broken stripes- like a tiger, while classic tabby is the bulls eye pattern. She's a really lovely kitty!

I didn't get a chance to state that she is a VERY pretty kitty before my 5 minute limit was up

Thank you everyone, I do see now I mistakenly said Mackeral Tabby, sorry!

I've never seen a cat like her, and I'm perfectly fine calling her a DSH, I was just curious as to what might have added to her interesting appearance .

I also think she is very pretty, it's a wonder why she was a stray at all. When I went to pick her up the finder was telling me how she had seen people shooing the kitty and throwing things at it. Door knocking and posters didn't bring forward anyone with interest in her either, she looked as if she hadn't been wandering for long, yet no one in the area seemed to know or want her.

She's safe with me now, and I'm happy to keep her too, since she gets along so well with my other foster kittens and resident cat Loki.

Thanks again for your feedback :3
