Hi guys! I was wondering if you could help me know my cat's breed (if he has). My dad's friend gave him to me when he was just a kitten, he told me that the cat was a stray cat. So, hope you could help me:) thanks!

How old is he?  Is he slender mostly because he is still quite young, or is he slender by his natural posture?  A pic from the side would be nice, to see clearly what type of tabby he is.

 

Anyway, whatever his possible ancestors, he is surely a domestic.  The pattern is tabby and white.   I guess he is striped = "mackerel" but I dont see it clearly.

Some  spots on the tummy are quite common with tabbys.

 

The bolded sentence is a nice illustration to what I often say.  That is, "Never give away a kitten for free - because people tend to think, what is for free, is practically worthless.   One of the few exceptions is when you give the kitten as a precious gift, and the kitten is accepted and adopted as a precious gift."

 

And so it was apparently here.

 

Tx a lot, and congrats to your beautiful furry friend!

 

 

Good luck!

He's 2 yrs old and slender by nature, I think. One more thing, he likes to pee inside the house even on me.lol. I think he sees me as his territory or something. So, do you know what triggers that behavior and how to prevent it?. Thank you so much! smile.gif

Oops,  I still dont see clearly his pattern on his side.  If it is my eyes or an unusual coloring / pattern, I dont know.  But it is not the most common mackerel nor classic.   I suspect it is either broken mackerel, or even spotted...

 

 

To your next question.  Is he neutered?  If not, high time to do, it by several reasons.   Neutering should help.

 

If not, its more behavioral than I want and dare to answer here and now.  Please write down your question on our Behavioral forum!

 

 

Good luck!

Getting him neutered should stop him peeing in the house and on you. It's a very simple procedure, it won't bother him at all.
