    Hi,

    So my cat is a Male and is a similar age to our female cat but is much larger in comparison. You can’t see well in the picture but the outside of his eyes are a yellowy gold and the inside is green.

    He is very energetic but is super soppy and loves lap cuddles, also when he meows it’s very quiet, but he’s a loud purrer.

    Really? He’s super fluffy so I thought he might have been crossed with something else.

    Yes didn't spot his tail, maybe semi longhair but still a domestic. Very attractive cat.

    Domestic longhair or a longhair moggy. No specific breed, just a lovely fluffster :)

    He’s very beautiful but definitely not crossed with any purebred. The longhair/semi-longhair gene does exist in the domestic cat population, after all, that’s where purebred cats originated anyway.

    Every trait in pedigree cats originated in a domestic population somewhere in the world.

    We originally thought that maybe he was a mix of a Norwegian Forest cat or a Maine coon because of his tail and furr, but he is a beautiful cat.

    He doesn't resemble either breed, a fluffy coat and tail does not a pedigree make. Love him for what he is, a very handsome mogster :)
