Is my cat a doll faced persian?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi all, just wondering if my cat neve is in fact a persian, if not can anyone tell me what she is?

post #2 of 20
I really don't think so. She looks more in the ragdoll family perhaps, that is a guess, there is no way to tell exactly unless she was registered and all that. She is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous though. I really wouldn't think persian at all. The coat doesn't look right for a persian and her face structure. I am not good on that stuff, but judging from the purebreds I have seen, she really doesn't look persian. The legs aren't short and stocky enough really either.

She's very pretty, but because of the lenght of her fur and the shape of her face I would say that she looks more like a Persian mix.

These are white Persians;

i saw a picture of a cat that looked just like mine, the owner described her as a "ragdoll persian". Is a ragdoll and a persian a different breed of cats?

Thank you all for clearing it up for me...

I purchased her for about $20.00 and by the looks of her I think she shouldve cost a tiny fortune

Thank you again!!!

Persians and Ragdolls are both wonderful, but very different breeds in looks. As well a Persian/Ragdoll would just be a mixed breed. She is beautiful, but I wouldn't say a Ragdoll either. I would just say a pretty odd-eyed white kitty.

I'm no expert but she looks like a Turkish Angora to me. She's lovely

If she is a Turkish Angora she would be deaf...is she? She is beautiful no matter what she is! (so are the babies)!

I dont think she looks like Turkish Angora either. Those are more on the slender side from what I have seen at shows. She is beautiful tho! And I hope she has been spayed now. As for being deaf wouldnt it be only one side since she has only one blue eye?

Not all blue eye cats are deaf, just a noticible percentage of them.

And if she was it would only be on the side with the blue eye.

And she doesn't look like a Turkish Angora.

I think you have a very beautiful white cat. Her babies are darling too!

She looks like she has persian and turkish angora in the background - you could tell more on the type/texture of the fur. Does she mat easily? or is the coat more silky. A matting coat indicates more of a persian background where as a silky little matting coat would be turk or ragdoll.

Not ALL white cats are deaf and not ALL blue eyed white cats are deaf, but its a higher chance of being deaf if the blue eyes are not "siamese" blue background. I had a gold-eye white rex that was deaf (only one I ever had) and that was due to the father (bi-color) and not the mother (odd-eye white) as the mother came from pointed rexes which were not deaf at all. My 15 yr old blue-eyed white rex is NOT deaf as he is out of the same background (pointed).

She is definately not deaf... I checked when I brought her home, and again after I read your posts. She does however ignore us a lot, she isnt overly affectionate and hates to be held or cuddled.

No mats on her upper body, her hair is very silky and soft, but tends to mat under the arms, but not often. I cant brush her as she tends to bite so I just cut the matts.

I read up about turkish angoras, and thought it a possibilty that she might have some in her background as she looks very similar, eyes, fur and jaw structure, however her ears are not quite as large. I saw a picture of a turkish angora and it looked exactly like one of my kittens, pure white with a black smudge on the top of his head.

She does have some of the traits of angoras, such as hyperactiveness, she yaks non stop and she loves to play.. I read that they do not like to be cuddled for long and that they tend to connect with one person more than others, which is me cos she follows me around non stop.

Thank you for all your replies. I really wanted to know as she is so beautiful and Ive never seen a cat like her before. Apart from angoras and a picture of a ragdoll that I have seen I cant find a breed that is similar to her in appearance...

PS: I will try and get a better picture of her in a sitting position that might help a little, but it is difficult as its really hot here and she is always lying down on the cool tiled floor.

Oh that reminds me, i do not know how to check if she has a double layered coat or just a single, but when she is hot she pants a lot which gives me the idea that she has a double coat, unlike angoras which have a single coat...

Do you get tabbies or maine coons that look like her?

Just one more thing, do I need to know what breed she is if I plan to bring her to LA with me?

She is gorgeous!!!! Man, I love white cats! It's possible she's simply a medium-to-long-haired domestic. What great eyes!!!

As far as relocating her, all that matters is her shots. She is extremely beautiful!!! I used to have an odd-eyed white cat that looked just like her. My husband got her from the animal shelter. He always called her a Turkish Angora, but of course it was just a way of identifying type. (Like as compared to Persian.) My cat wasn't deaf, nor was Smudge, who was an odd-eyed white, not related to the first cat. Anyway, I think she's absolutely gorgeous!
Here is Smudge, but he went to the Bridge last October.

Awww, sorry to hear about your loss, RIP sweet smudge. What a beautiful kitty, is he a turkish angora? One of my kitties have the same little smudge on his head, we named him gogga (meaning insect in afrikaans) you can see pics of him here http://s68.photobucket.com/albums/i1.../My%20Kitties/
When I first saw this little kitty I really thought he was unique with the little smudge on his head, but since his birth ive seen multiple cats that look the same.

OMG!!! He is SOOO cute! We had three in the litter that were white with black spots on their heads. The mother is my Elsa who is spayed and is there in my Siggy. The dad is a long-haired white cat. I found Elsa living under the trailer where I worked and tamed her and brought her home. Then she had 8 kittens. Definitely not any kind of breed, but cute and sweet nonetheless! (Smudge had short hair like his mom - 2 of the kittens out of 8 had long hair. We lost him at 6 months to FIP.)

Unless you have papers to prove the breed, all you need is description of the cat and the shots records. Make sure they are up to date and you have a recent (within 10 days) vet exam for a health certificate. If you don't have a rabies shot, make sure you have one.
