    Hi All
    im new to the whole forum thing but i was wondering if anyone out there can help me shed a little light on something.

    I have 2 beautiful cats who have just turned 1 this week and we have been racking our brains as to why they were still so long but skinny until a visit to the vets advised us they may have some form of oriental breed in them.

    as far as i knew they were general tourtie lol

    both mums were general black and white short hairs but they had escaped and came back pregnant 2 days apart with no idea who 'Daddy' was.

    we did get the only non black and white from each litter (me and my taste for the unusual or so says my other half) so just wondering if anyone out there hads any suggestions as to what they think might be in them (not paying 80 quid for dna test im just curious lol)

    any help would be great :001_smile:

    No clue, but they definitely do have an Asian breed look to them--the slender angular faces and big ears, almond shaped eyes. I've always assumed our Henry and Eleanor are part Siamese or some other vocal Asian breed. Ellie is quite the talker and if we could dye her fur to cream, take off the black splotches, she's got the Siamese bone structure. They're rescue siblings and 4 of the litter were white with black spots and one was grey. No clue about either parent. I've always wondered myself, just because it's nice to be able to pin some breed characteristics to your pet's looks or behaviors.

    Thanks for the posts :) No idea who Dad would be as we live in a different area but as far as the mums owners knew they thought it was a tabby but im thinking not lol

    They are both really vocal as well and can be really needy which ive been told is a Siamese trait

    they do seem to space out and go hyper occasionally plus love nothin more than draggin all my clothes out of the wardrobe to make a bed lol
