The breeders section is for the discussion of breeding etc. of purebred cats. You kitten is very cute..but is definately not a purebred cat....he is a domestic orange and white tabby (look for the classic M on his forehead). Of all the forums...this is probably the closest one to house your post.

o ok i didnt notice the m thing on his head thats kinda cool. Is it true that moggie cats live longer than purbred cats because purebred cats can get unwanted genes and illness? I just read that on a website when i found out that he was a moggie.

I haven't read anything along those lines....however, be proud of your little one's mogginess. BTW....my boy is an orange and white tabby as well. Although...now that I look at your guy and my guy...yours is probably red and white (like the other poster said).

He is a sweet looking cat! Most cats are not purebreeds, all that matters is that they are happy and healthy and loved. And you sound like you already love this little fellow very much. When you are ready and need advice about care or getting shots etc, there are lots of really good people here who can help, so don't be afraid to ask about anything. And anything your vet says or that you read and you don't understand, the answers are often here.

Cute site. I am not an expert in genetics, and there are people here who are, but inbreeding of any kind of cat can cause problems if inherited faults or sicknesses are passed on from parents to kittens. 'Moggies', or ordinary cats such as most of us have, are less likely to be inbred so may avoid some problems. But responsible breeders of purebred cats do research to ensure that their cats are as healthy as possible in their genes, and there are cases where cats of any type are inbred because their owners have left brothers and sisters too long together before getting them spayed, or because in an isolated colony of feral cats too many of them are closely related.

Just enjoy your cat and watch as he grows to love you!
