Hi, 4 days ago we saved a little kitten from the streets, her mother always leaves the babies and they always die :(
I named my adorable kitten "Hoshi" (which means star)
I am not exactly sure how old she is, she can run and jump high, so she must be 4-7 weeks. Sometimes she looks as little like a guinea-pig (without the legs)

ok to come to the point i wonder what breed she could be? I never seen her parents but i can see that she is a mix.
First I thought she could be a chausie mix, because of the color, and mixed because she has white tips on er feet, but then i saw how big chausies can become and i don't think she will ever be that big.
But then I searched more in the internet and now i think that she could be a "Tortoiseshell agouti ticked Tabby"

Tortoiseshell: because she has decent 4 tones of color, white, beige, light brown and black. And she has some black spots on her pink nose and paws. And she has white tips on her feet, neck and nose.

Agouti ticked: because on her back each hair is 2 colored in brown and black. And she has little stripes on her tail end and legs and face, but not on the back.

Tabby: I am actually not really sure.


so what do you guys think?
you can correct me if I am wrong :3

here some pictures of her:












She is so beautiful and I already love her very much!

btw: in real life she looks much littler than on the pictures.

She's adorable, but there's no way to tell breed. So her breed would be considered Domestic Short Hair (DSH), which is the cat equivalent of "mutt".

The tabby, agouti, Tortie labels are associated with coat pattern not breed. Heidi would be the best one to define her coat pattern.

Her breed is DSH=Domestic Shorthair, and she does have quite unusual colour, as well as tortie markings. Here is the CFA description for a Ticked Tabby Pattern:



TICKED TABBY PATTERN:
body hairs to be ticked with various shades of marking color and ground color. Body when viewed from top to be free from noticeable spots, stripes, or blotches, except for darker dorsal shading. Lighter underside may show tabby markings. Face, legs, and tail must show distinct tabby striping. Cat must have at least one distinct necklace.

Her color would be described as Brown Ticked Torbie and White, or Brown Ticked Patched Tabby and White. The show standards use the term Patched Tabby, but the tabby and tortoiseshell (tortie) patterns together are commonly called Torbie. She does have the tabby striping on her legs and tail and a bit of a necklace on one side (from what I can see in the photos). Very pretty girl and has a really confident and sweet air about her. Lucky you! :)
