purebred out of mixes?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone could put my mind at ease, once and for all (I hate these little ideas that dance in the back of my head, but that I can't answer!) I was wondering if anyone knew if you could get a more or less purebred cat out of a mixed breed crossing? I got a kitten about 3 months ago (he's now 5 months old) from a woman who was giving kittens away for free (her queen had had an unwanted litter). The mother was a calico, and I have no idea who the father was, but the kitten we got (Elmo) looks and acts like the spitting image of a Turkish Van. I have pictures of him, which I can't post, because I use Geocities. If you'd like to see him, please e-mail me.

NO,Even if the cat looks like a purbred it can not be registered as such if the father or the mother is not registered. If the cat looks purebred to you then thats what matters.

No you can't. Every mating mixes the genes of both the father & the mother. So, even if the kitten looks like a purebred, it is still made up of 50% mum & 50% dad's genes.
