Well I'm new to the forum, so hi everyone! Anyway, I came here to have a few questions answered for me that I've been wanting answered for quite some time. 1st question will be here under general, I'll post the 2nd under the behaviors forum.
Anyway, so long story short, I 'rescued' my cat, so I don't know what her breed/medical history was when I first took her in. Basically about a week after I moved in to the apt. I was living in at the time, this cat was always scratching at my door, we had a bunch of hurricanes coming in the next few days so I decided to let her in. 3 years later I still have her
I later found out that she belonged to the lady who lived in my apt. before me, but had passed, and had no family down here to take care of her, so they left the cat outside to be rescued or whatever. So I've had her for about 3 1/2 years and I love her more than anything, shes my baby. We have a very strong bond and am so grateful I have her.
Anyway, I've always been a bit curious as to what kind of breed she might be, because everyone that has met her always says the same thing. "What kind of cat is that? It definitely doesnt look like your typical american domestic." I tried doing searches here and there but never really got answers. Someone suggested she might be of the Bombay breed. She has a very long nose (which based on my research, I don't think matches the Bombay features), she is very lean, and small. Her ears are bigger than normal in my opinion as well. A few friends have said the best way to describe her is like a Sphynx but with fur (very very soft, short fur). She has golden eyes, purs VERY loudly, and is very vocal (like when I come home from work or from being out, constant talking
So I'm posting some pictures of her to see if any of you have any ideas? Theres a good chance she is an American Shorthaired cat, but that's why im here to ask. Thanks!
Anyway, here's Kimchee! If you need more pictures to make a better determination let me know, I have more
