What Breed Is My Girl?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Please help me in identifying the primary breed for Gracie. She was listed as a DMH by the shelter. Some say she is part Maine Coon. I am attaching her baby, juvenile and adult pictures. She has a silent purr, very acute hearing and will leave the room if the tv is too loud. Thanks.

She COULD be part Maine Coon, but unless you have papers, you can't ever be 100% sure, unfortunately.

She is absolutely stunning! Whatever her breed is or isn't doesn't matter...you have one gorgeous cat!

Thank you SO MUCH for adopting this lucky little girl from your shelter. It makes such a difference, not only to her, but to the world (and to us rescuers, too! )

Majestic? Oh yeah. She feels that she needs to be treated like a princess. "You may kiss my paw".

What a beautiful kitty! She is considered a domestic medium hair. Very pretty!

She is sooooo pretty! You must just adore her. Did her eyes change from that copper color to the green as she got older?

Well, of course! She IS royalty, y'know.

She is a beautiful cat.

She's definitely cute, and is a DMH without a pedigree and papers.

I know that without papers she is just a DMH. I was just wondering what do you think is her main breed?
post #14 of 24
Unlike dogs cats don't really exist naturally in breeds. So it makes it really hard to tell if there is anything purebred in her. But she is a gorgeous girl!

She probably does have maine coon in the background somewhere - very pretty kitty. She's a DLH unless you have papers to prove otherwise.

I'm sure she would do well if you chose to show her in the HHP classes in a cat show!

Yes showing in HHP can be really fun! I do it with my tabby cat occasionally. If she has sensitive hearing she might not like it though as it can get noisy. You never know though .

The color of her eyes are just incredible! I love that intense coloring.

No papers. Adopted her and George from a city shelter in August 2004. George is a month older than Gracie. He is just an everyday Gray DSH who thinks his "Mommy" is the best thing since sliced bread. Wished Gracie felt that way about me, her "Daddy".

She's a beautiful Longhair Domestic!

Purebred cats only make up 3% of the cat population. The chances of your kitty having a purebred parent is rare. You have a beautiful brown tabby w/white domestic longhair.
