Hmm I will have to measure his tail now because I am very curious haha.. And I did some research and found a breed called the Egyptian Mau... It is said they have spots and stripes and they also have the facial markings that look like eyeliner and makes them have a "Worried expression" which is actually what my mom has said about Toby since he was little LOL that he always looks so worried. And it is said they are attached to one person and a bit weary of others and loud noises. Also says they are very athletic and slim and muscular and his personality fits to a tee...and the Egyptiam Mau is said to have a loose skin pouch from his belly down to his back legs which is what Toby has! And I always found that peculiar because as I said he is so thin that I found it weird he has that long pouch...So it could be maybe he has Egyptian Mau in his ancestry somewhere

Most of the Egyptian Maus I've seen at shows are medium size cats; it's really your boy's size that has me intrigued, cause he's going to be huge when he's reached maturity. I wouldn't put too much emphasis on the belly pouch, known as the "Primordial Pouch", as a lot of cats have that, wild cats included....my oldest Devon does, and it's common with the bald Sphynx, Bengal and Egyptian Mau breeds, and spayed females.

Wow, 16 lbs and not even a year old! I'd never heard of the Serengeti before - that was interesting catloverami!

I know nothing about breeds, but Toby has a very striking appearance, with those big upright ears. Looking at his cute little face, you'd never guess he weighed anything close to what he weighs! I'm guessing your other kitty is Stella? It appears that he and Stella are getting along really well from the pic!

Not a Bengal from what I see in the photos. Might have a bit of Savannah with some of the facial structure and ears....would account for the size too.
