What breed is my cat? Characteristics of some common breeds


People take the initiative to understand and regulate the breeds of cats, which may help people choose cats to accompany them.

And the process of choosing people for cats is full of randomness: whether it is a chance encounter with you when you are hovering downstairs, or a piece of adoption information suddenly breaks into your sight.

This kind of fate is equally wonderful.

In a nutshell, you can tell from the following points:

  1. Check parents or ancestors, breed cats pay great attention to pedigree, most of the purchase will be accompanied by documents and certificates.
  2. Check the information, go to the official website of TICA(The International Cat Association)or CFA (Cat Fanciers Association) to see the information of the corresponding cat breed, if it is a breed of cat, the physical characteristics of your cat must be highly consistent with the data.
  3. To accept the fact that your cat may not belong to any certified breed, it is a randomly bred cat.
