My kitten Chuy - any idea what breeds he might have in him?
My kitten Chuy is basically a street cat that was rescued, but I've been told that he looks a bit fancier than the average street cat. And some photos I've seen of British shorthair kittens look kind of similar to him. He also has sort of faint tabby stripes, and a white front/paws, and a short tail and short ears compared to other kittens I've had in the past. Does anybody have any idea what breeds he might have in his mix?
Another question: Does the fact that he has small ears signify anything? My last kitten (which I got 20 years ago so its hard to remember for sure) had huge ears and he turned into the biggest cat I've ever known. Chuy has small ears and a small tail, so I wonder if that means he might grow up to be a smaller cat. Is there any way to predict those types of things?
Isn't domestic shorthair just a generic term for any random mix of cats that's not purebred? I thought somebody might be able to say he has a bit of british blue in him or something. My other cat we just called a tabby. I really don't know much about cat breeds. I do know that rescue cats from the street generally make the best pets.
Technically he is a Domestic Shorthair. At 5 weeks it would be hard pressed to guess on any breeds he may have. Most kittens at this age have short tails and ears also. give him time to get some growth on. and let his eyes change if they are.
