I got to thinkin' what do you call a cat that is a mixed/unknown breed, i know that if a dog has more then one type of breed in it you call it a mutt. but what do you call a cat? my kitty is an unknown breed. i think he was saved from the humane society or bought from a pet store but not directly from a breeder. he's mainly white with three black spots on on side...a splotch on the top of his head and his tail is black. any ideas?
Most "mutt" cats (or "moggies") are referred to by their fur length: DSH, Domestic Shorthair, or DLH, Domestic Long Hair. Unless they have some distinct characteristics that identify them as, say, a Siamese mix, then they are usually one of the two.
