Meet Taylor :) (Anyone know what breed?)

This is Taylor She's about 4 months old ^_^

Not sure what breed she is but I know her Mum was just a BSH ginger tabby... but our Vet says she looks like a Turkish Van

When I first got her:

She's a little madam, always scratching and play fighting with me! She only likes cuddles when she's tired... She's like a hormonal teenager

Hard to tell when they are that young what breeds are mixed in there. But she sure is a beauty of a kitten. How sweet and innocent she looks!

What a beautiful girl! She kind of reminds me of my Murphy, in that they're orange and white and have that triangular sort of face. What a sweetie.

Taylor does not have van pattern. Van pattern shouldn't have color on the body. Only head and tail. So actually she does not look like a turkish van. She is most likely a DSH (I guess you were saying her mom is a DSH, not BSH, right?).

Love the first picture! Little Taylor even has her own pillow! How cute

Thanks everyone

I know she probably isn't a Van, but the vet said its similar markings. I think her markings are strange (but then again I don't know anything about cats) because the patches looked just ginger when she was smaller, but now they have kind of patterns in them in light ginger/white.

Here's some more pictures








Its really sad because we were the 3rd home she'd been to; Her original owners sold her to the person I bought her off. But the person I bought her off had a dog who kept biting her and being really rough with her, we even had to rescue her from being torn apart when I went to collect her!!! I think thats why she's got a bit of an angry streak all the time lol

Also I meant British Short Hair That's what her last owners said her Mum was. But Taylor is really medium/long haired and fluffy! I always have to brush her fur. She's started to lose the longer hair i'm not sure whether its just due to it being summer or what but I'm constantly covered in her white fur haha!

i love looking at pics of kitties in the encyclopedias and she does have that longish face and those big pink ears that looks real similar to some turkish vans or even just turkish angoras, but i couldn't say with any certainty either what breed she really is. so many cats are like humans these days anyway. they got a little of this and a little of that in them. a little italian, a little chinese, a little welsh,...it gets to be ridiculous trying to call someone completely one or another. she is a beautiful kitty, though, no doubt! good for you for rescuing her from a dangerous doggie. 3rd home's a charm!

Do you have a picture of her standing up? She doesn't look like the has the cobby body you usually see in BSH cats (or, imo, in lots of british moggies).

I love her stripey red tail. X)
