Question Ragdoll mix kitten - longhair or shorthair?

Hi all!

This is my sweet kitten, Momo. We were told she was a ragdoll mix, but since she's an orphan, there was no way to see a parent. She's about 8 weeks in this photo. She's lost some fluff since we got her, so what do y'all think? Longhair or shorthair?

Is cute an option? LOL. She could be in between long & short hair. I have owned a cat that had longer hair, but wasn't classified as a long haired cat. If that makes sense?

Based on the ear feathers, I'm going to guess at least a medium hair. Mind you, kittens all go through a fluffy stage, so you probably won't know for another 4 or 5 months. The gene for long hair is recessive, so she'd have to get it from both parents to have long hair.

mbon, we'd love another opportunity to decide short, medium, or longhaired - in other words, how about an updated pic of your cutie?
