My new kitten, Kilgore Trout

Greetings all. I am a new member. After growing up with cats, and spending the last 10 years without, I'm pleased to have a new kitten.


Kilgore Trout is nine weeks old, the son of feral cats, who gave birth under a friend's home. I'm just not sure how to classify him. Is he a (U.S.) domestic medium hair, or short hair?

Thanks for any advice on this.

Hi David, and welcome to Cat Forum. I'm afraid I just can't make any determinations about Kilgore Trout with only one photo of him to go by. So, I'll need you to box him up and ship him to me so I can thoroughly examine him and I'll get back to you on that info. Please do not be alarmed if it takes many years. It is a fairly long process, you know, but I'm sure you'd want me to be thorough.


He is lovely! I see he is a "classic" tabby, which is the genetic patter that has the circle/target on the sides/flanks. I love classics as their markings are so wide and beautiful with a great range of color between the tabby markings and inner agouti banded hairs. His fur does look to be a bit on the long-ish side, so DLH. There is only long or short haired cats, but since there is a difference in length between many long hairs, we (general public) tend to classify them as DMH, and I guess that would be fine until he matures into his adult coat and you can then make a better evaluation.
He really is cute. Are you sure you wouldn't like to send him to me?
