I wanted to bring this over here! They are doing it at the dogs side. I know we don't have quiet as many cat breeds. So with that, I would like to include WILD cats as well, lions, tigers, you name it, you find it, and it's of the feline family add it, or you can do domesticated breeds. :)

I will start with this one, tell me what breed you think it is, if you win, then you get to post a breed for the rest of us to guess.

I am in no way an expert, at all, on cat breeds, other than some obvious ones, but for some reaon I want to say, an american curl? I don't know why, the fur looks curly to me. I don't even know if thats why curls are called that LOL! anyway I think the cat is still fairly young from the size of its ears, it has not quite grown into them yet!

so what breed is it?

Nope, not a Devon Rex, or an American Curl. Try again. :)

It's a rarer breed, if you will.

The Devon Rex is close however, in reference to the coat :)

Cornish Rex?

Nope. The coat pattern has nothing to do with it, these cats can come in any colour or pattern, size, it's just all about the curly/wavey fur.

Lailamara: Very good you got it, a LaPerm! :)

You can go ahead and post your breed/species for everyone to guess. :)

lailamara-congratulations!

angelzoo-wow, you sure did make a good guessing game!
I got mixed, up, for some reason I thought Kathoo was the one that had posted the guess game, and when she posted that it was a rex, I thought that was the answer...duh! (wake up mary!):rolleyes:

Here's another picture where it's clearer to see what possible origins are.

Pretty cat, but I don't have any idea what breed. Is it a rare breed?

BastetsMum

Turkish Van?

lailamara

Bastet's mom you are on the right track. Some more clues...... Oriental type cat (longhair and shorthair forms) exhibiting the Van/Harlequin pattern.It is very obscure!! and only recognized recently.

My guess is Turkish Angora.

bluekat

I thought Turkish Angora too
I'm probably wrong, but is it a Javanese? The face reminds me of one.

Bluekat you are probably as close as anyone will get. I've really picked a very obscure breed. They only breed them in Britain . If no one can guess I'll post the answer. Their breed name appealed to me as its a place I'd like to visit (almost did) and I liked the description of their personalities ..."Scatterbrained, demonstrative and demanding of human attention at all times," especially the scatterbrained, as that would be a cat matched perfectly to me !!!:rolleyes:

It's a Seychellois

I'm not really good at all those cat breed but I do know the most propular breed of cats. My quess would be La perms. Is that the right answer? What a nice looking cat, the fur looks really unique and different. It's like curly fur, it's different then the other cats fur. Soo what the cat breed?
