Re: What kind of cat is this?

I hope someone answers. People may skip this thread because it's usually a generic housecat and cat's can't be identified w/out papers but these guys are special. I'm a sucker for an unusual looking cat.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

I would think some kind of Rex mix. Very cool looking!

Re: What kind of cat is this? Very unusual cat!

Their angular facial features remind me of the Siamese/Oriental appearance. The ears ... since all three are holding those huge bat-wing-like ears down and to the side, makes me wonder if they have a genetic cartilege issue similar to the Folds/Curls. Otherwise, they all look subdued, ill or confused holding their ears to the side like that. The kitty on the left is exhibiting a 'different' tabby pattern that makes me think of a domestic cat crossed with a 'wild cat' in order to get all of those different features.

My first thought was Photoshop. The nose on the middle cat looks weird.

Ears like that aren't always a genetic defect. I remeber a small cat in a zoo in Columbia S.C. decades ago that had ears on the side like that and it was an adaptation. It was a wild cat that lived in mountainous terrain and having the ears on the side helped it stalk prey without being spotted.

They look real to me. I checked the properties on the photo but couldn't get to a lower spot in the address for info.

My first thoughts were Sphynx or Oriental, with their ears folded in a "cat frown".

Or maybe they're Gremlins?

And don't you have to keep them dry?
