These are my 2 babies and I was wondering what breed they are, thanks in advance for info and I dont know to make them smaller, sorry they are so big

This is YAGI












and this is YANCEY

I would say they are Domestic Medium Hair Cats, of no particular breed. They are beautiful, but I don't see them as any specific breed. I think Yancey is especially striking.

Yancey is what we'd call a "Vanalike" because she bears a striking resemblance to a Turkish Van. She's a very pretty girl You should enter her as a HHP in a cat show sometime and see if you confuse any of the judges

I was gonna say Maine Coon for the boy - but the cat is pretty even and MC's have a shaggy coat. The girl looks a little more MC or Turkish Angora.

But they are both mixed domestic longhair cats. IMO I'd show both in the household pet class

Thank you, they are my babies. I wouldnt know how to go about showing them in a pet show, never done that before, any suggestions or input is welcome. Is Yagi tuxedo? someone told me that he is.

Its easy - only a few basic rules for showing household pets

1. Spayed/Neutered if over 8 months
2. Not declawed
3. Groomed (bath, combing, etc.)
4. Good personality, likes people, doesn't mind strangers handling them, plays with toys.

I would first attend a local cat show in your area and watch what goes on. Then go home and work with your cat. I start off kittens with "table work" - being cooperative on the table, playing with toys, letting the person go over body, head, etc. and stretching them out and learning to be comfortable with things.

I have done the same thing with adult cats too - "table work".

Here's some links for the various associations, you'll have to check out their show calendar to see when a show is scheduled in Tennessee.

If you think you might be interested, I'll be glad to help you out on what you need to do and take to the show for your cats

Yagi would be listed in the show as "Red Mackeral Tabby/White" (tuxedo is usually used with a black/white cat, but its a wrong term - proper term is Black Bicolor (meaning solid color and white - Black/White)

Your girl is a "Calico Van".

Both would be longhair household pets.

BTW on entry blanks, you don't need to know the parents (its not listed anyway), so leave those blank. The only thing you need is cats name, birthday (approx if not known), color, sex (spay/neuter), your name, address, etc.

The more I look at Yancy, the more I see a beautiful Vanalike The TUV standard is written in a way to reflect domestics, so its always fun to see one that meets what it is on paper because you'll never really know what is in the gene pool.

Her white tail tip is really cute too. It's striking with the Tortie
