What is my cat crossed with????

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if you guys could tell what my cat is crossed with.
Her mum is a siamese but they don't know who the father is?

The day we got her

This is her asleep in my mum's arms
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b3...InMumsArms.jpg
This is her rolling over
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b3...verEnlarge.jpg
This is her trampling over the chairs and licking her lips
http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b3...ingHerLips.jpg
This is her sat on a chair. Having a photoshoot. (took loads of her there)

This is her when she was getting ready for me to throw her, her mouse

If you can't tell from just those. Take a look at this website. The password is lucinda

Since you know her mother is a siamese, then she's just 1/2 siamese mixed.

Father is probably a just a mixed stray tom. If people ask you what she is, just tell them "she's 1/2 siamese" and leave it to that.

I know on some of the household pet "parents" people would write
Sire: Traveling salesman
Dam: Siamese (or whatever the mom's name was)

the best one i have seen was for a puppy:

mother: cocker spaniel
father: sneaky neighbours dog

the dad is most probably a domestic short hair tom as those are the most commonly un-neutered cats roaming around. perhaps he was black too?

we can't tell you what your cat was crossed with. You have a DSH cat and that's all we know without a pedigree

I thought Cindy and Lucy were exotic Mau mixes after we picked them up from the shelter, but in truth, they are a mixture of probably different mixed breeds. But, bengalbabe, our Lucy as an adult does have that narrow wedge shaped head with large ears like your pic of a bengal cat, including some of the markings. Lucy has long black ear tips, a trait of Maine Coon's, but she's a very affectionate lap cat who likes to just plop down on your lap whenever she gets a chance, which doesn't seem to fit any of these breeds. Mooie, our rescue cat (a neutered male), who belonged to somebody out there, is a large, magnificent looking cat, and he looks just like some pics of bred Norwegian forest cats. He could, however, be part Maine Coon, instead.

My guess is that Moo is a mixture of Norwegian forest cat, DSH, and yet another magnificent moggie. What's interesting is how dark torties look so similar, like our Punkin (Punky).

Bengals are not supposed to have large ears, they are supposed to be small with rounded tips. It's hard to tell ear size from a pic, many pics make ears look bigger then they actually are. My marble bengal does have ears that are a bit too large for her breed however I wouldn't classify them as 'large'.

Oh, I didn't know that about begals having small ears. I don't know, it's just something about Lucy's body posture or face that reminds me of some bengal photos, like Lucy in this pic.

We are really trying to breed bengals to get away from the domestic face as much as possible although were quite a ways away from that still.

here's closer to what a bengal profile should look like:
profile should be straight or only slightly curved


large, round eyes but not 'buggy"


prominant wisker pads


small, ears, rounded at the tip


again, small rounded ears, dark black eyeliner around the eyes, white "goggles around the eyes.

just a note that i've noticed these cats usually have to grow into their ears. Harley is still growing into his, his were huge when he was little.
post #15 of 25
You;ve got "one of those black cats" LOL. These cats
rock. Pt. Siamese w/ black DSH mixed in. Awesome
personalities. She'll have a lovely tail and will grow
into the ears, but they will always be big. Wedge head
too...

Enjoy her! Dam = Siamese Sire = no good tramp

I also agree with this

Bengalbabe-that last picture you posted up there looks exactly like that cat I almost adopted from the shelter I worked at! We thought she was a bengal, of course we couldn't be sure at a shelter but she had the pattern, the color, the eyeliner, the tanish/pink nose, the ears, and the VOICE! Oh my was she a loud one! In fact that is why the original owners left her there and why the first adopter brought her back. She was great and walked on a leash and everything.

lulu-Your cat looks like my Da-Ku's identical twin sister! He looked just like yours as a baby with huge ears and wedge face and looks like yours does in the older pictures. Mine is also 1 year and 3 months old. You don't happed to live in Ohio do you? Maybe we got 2 from the same litter haha! Does your have any random white hairs, like just a single white hair here and there, or a little white coming out of the ears? Mine does. I love black cats.

She sure is a beauty!
I don`t know what the mix is....but I have seen several cats throughout my life that are black and when I heard their cry I suspected that they must be part siamese too. Is that quite a common thing for mixes to be black , I wonder?
