What breed cross is this kitten?  

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello

We are fostering this kitten and wanted to know what he is crossed with. we have no background on him but we thought breeders could tell us what he is crossed with.

He's the only kitten in the cat album - http://community.webshots.com/user/bierhousea

Thanks,

Angela

Not a breeder..but it looks like a chocolate point siamese to me.

He is very beautiful. He probably is a siamese or a hymalyan cross, but I think he is a seal point.

Hmmm...seal point. You know...I'm honestly not good with "points". I saw the brown and figured it was chocolate. Learn something new everyday.

I think he's a chocolate point too. The picture makes him look darker then he actually is. Thanks everyone. We think we're going to adopt the little guy. We've raised tons of kittens for the foster program. They're all cute but its funny sometimes how out of all of them 1 comes along that just feels right and this one does.

Thanks everyone

Hi!

Since I breed traditional Siamese, I am familiar with their colorings. I would say that based on the picture, the kitty is a seal point. Even if he's lighter in person, I still think he's too dark to be a choclate point. At that young of an age, chocolate points hardly have any brown coloring on their feet.

It is possible that the kitten has some Siamese or Himilayan in it. It is also possible that the cutie is nothing more than a DSH (domestic shorthair) that got the recessive "pointed" gene from both parents.

Nonetheless, he's certainly a cutie pie! Enjoy your time with him!

Yes, I agree. I don't breed cats, but I am familiar with pointed cats ( I have a cream point himilayan), and like I said before, he looks like a seal point. He also looks like an old style siamese, not the modern type, but like you said, it's hard to say with not a purebred cat if he is part siamese or not.

He could be siamese Birman mixed.

He is so pretty, I have gone back and looked at him about 5 times. He has such lovely big paws. I bet he will be a total hunk when he grows up!

Sorry to bring up this old, old thread, but I have just got a SiamesexBirman kitten, and did a google search to see some more pics of them, and this kitten looks exactly like mine! Don't know if you still have him or are still areound the site, but that's my much belated opinion

He looks like a gorgeous little pointed cat to me

I've got one here, her rescue group as her down as a Siamese mix, which she may well be, but her coat is too long, and her points are screwy.
She's not longhaired, but she's got a 'rough' coat about the length of rabbit fur.
But she has the bottle-brush tail of a Balinese.

Sealpoint except for her blue-lynx point tail.
Whatever she is, she's my baby.

Looks like a seal point himalayian to me, because of the long hair. It does look like he could have some traditional siamese in his lines.

Unfortunately, There is but a few of us who actually know feline genetics really really well... I happen to not be one of them. In any case, no one can really answer your question properly without knowing what the background is of the parents, (as well as the parents themselves).... So, Your cat is mixed with whatever he looks like to you he's mixed with, sounds kinda harsh I know, but different people will see different things, so the best thing to do is go with your gut.

I am now closing this thread.
