You kitty is beautiful. He/She looks like a DSH (Domestic Short Hair) to me, of no particular breed. What you would call a Moggie. I would say Her colouring is Tortie.

Hope's right - on DSH and color

There are many breeds with similar build like your kitty. She is pretty

Doesn't look like any breed to me but she's an excellent example of a black and white bi-color!

Black and white domestic shorthair.

Black/White Domestic Shorthair - color pattern is known as a "van" if that's the only body spot. Vans have color on the head and tail and 1-2 body spots.

"Mean Kitty" looks pretty Ocicat looking to me

The "mean kitty" is an Egyptian Mau.

No way Nial - its more Ocicat - EM's have no real pattern of spotting - the Oci's have the bullseye pattern - that's what I see on the sides. And the head is more Oci.

Ok I have to apoligize - the story says its an E Mau; however I stopped the filming in several parts - (1) the cat doesn't have green eyes which is a trademark of EM's (2) the EM is supposed to have a random spotted pattern on the coat with round spots. That cat has more of the bullseye pattern of an Ocicat. The eye shape and ear is EM, but I question if its really all EM. If so, its a pet quality.

I did compare it to the CFA Maus (bronze) and the head does look EM - body/pattern doesn't. So I don't know. I would have guessed Oci (pet) rather then EM.

I was going by what the owner said he was. Definitely a pet quality cat as an E. Mau or Oci. There were even breeders on the bengal list that said that cat was bengal.

Whatever he is, he's a cute cat. Hopefully the guy can curb his biting habit.
