What kind of kitty do I have?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've just adopted a new cat from a local shelter. He's a perfect tuxedo with a white mustashe, a white bib, belly, feet and hands. The rest of him is jet black with a hint of red. He has a short tail, about half the lenght of most cats. Also, at the very tips of his ears he has little points or tufts like a lynx. His fur is short and very shiny. He's very gentle and affectionate. He's about a year and a half to two years old. Can anyone tell me what breed, or combination, of cat this is?

try to get us a picture also, does the tail have hair on it u said it was shorter than others because if there no hair by the end that means it was cut that way, so try to get a picture maybe i can help ! I have a manx and her tail is about a little half of the size of other cats, thats just in the breed lol !~

Sounds like a mixed breed to me with maybe some kind of manx type in the background. Manx come in 3 tail lengths - no tail, partial tail, and full tailed.

As far as the color he's a black/white bicolor - the reddish in the coat only means that he's been outside a lot and the sun has bleached the black to turn reddish. It happens a lot with black cats that get a lot of sun.

As you can see, his tail seems to have grown that way, so maybe he's a manx, or, at least part manx?

His tail doesn't appear to have been cut as there is hair on the end. I posted a link to a picture of Tobias in my last post. Please let me know if the link works. Thanks!

There is going something in my head. Short tail and tufts in the ears sounds vaguely familiar. Kurilean Bob or similiar??? A japanese race I believe.

They arent common, but a fertile male could have a walk in fine weather...

I see i wikipedia there are also other races of "bob" cats. although most of them dont have these tufts in ears. Lets proceed to look...

Oh well, I guess I will just have to imagine. *sniffle, sniffle*
