Thanks a lot guys !!

Well what got me thinking is that i saw a lot of pictures on the internet of cats that look exactly like vicky , so i thought she still has some characteristics of a certain breed (i know she is not pure breed) ...

you guys think maybe she could be half Lynx point DMH ?

Cheers.

The colorpointgene is recessive, so you can never know if your cat has a parent who is pointed. Your cat is not pointed, she is a classic brown tabby (that is a color, not a breed).

She's a domestic medium-hair brown mackeral tabby, so you were right when you suggested DMH. As someone mentioned, lynx point is a color pattern, not a breed. She isn't pointed, and there's really no way of knowing what her parents looked like if you didn't see them. But lots of moggies are pointed, just like lots of moggies are black, brown tabby, ginger, etc., so anything is possible really.

Like everybody else said, she isn't lynx point (which is a color pattern, not a breed anyway). She is domestic medium hair brown tabby. If she resembles any breed, that would be maine coon a little bit.

I think she looks more siberian than maine coon, if anything. Definitely a domestic m/l hair though.
