Red face First cat!

Sooooo after many many years of wanting a cat I finally got my own place that is pet friendly (also without nasty roomates) and adopted a kitten! His name is Vesalius Enstine, Ves for short lol. Heís coming up to 6 months soon. Up to date with shots. Been fixed and finally gained some weight ! Super cute. A terrorizer for sure but doesnít leave my side and loves car rides.

To my knowledge heís a domesticated long hair. Which I believe is a term for a mixed house cat, correct? But Iím curious as what breeds he has in him? Or type of coat colouring you would classify him as?

Ps. My name is Sam

Hi Sam,

I don't know much about breeds or coat patterns - all I know is that he's definitely part tabby in terms of his coat - but I just had to say how ridiculously cute Ves is! :

Yes, he is a Domestic Longhair, since he doesn't have any registration papers with a cat registry (such as CFA=Cat Fanciers' Assoc.) that would confirm that he is a registered breed of cat. Having said this he does have the common color pattern of a Maine Coon cat, with a lot of them being brown classic tabby and white (with paws and chest, etc.). They are slow maturing cats, taking 4 yrs. to grow into a large cat usually weighing over 20 lbs., with a long rectangular shape body, long tail. They're very companionable cats. However, I think the shape of his round eyes and wider set and shorter ears are more like a Siberian's, that also have a shorter more compact body shape and shorter tail who knows what his background might be? They're also very companionable cats. His expression, especially his large eyes are absolutely wonderful! You've got a very special beautiful boy! You could enter him in a HHP class (household pet) at a cat show (CFA or TICA=The International Cat Assoc.)---he doesn't need to be registered to enter, and have the judges give an opinion, or other breeders at the shows who have Maine Coons and Siberians or even Norwegian Forest cats. I'm sure he would win some ribbons.
