    Hello my name is Blair. I just got a cat from rescue, also from my boss who runs the rescue. I was looking online and to me he looks and sounds just like the british blue. He has the faint lines around his tail and my and family called him a bulldog cat when I got him. And here is my baby Nightmare

    Not sure, he's certainly chunky like one. There are a few BSH breeders on here who I'm sure will be along soon to check him out :p

    He's a cutie sure enough :D

    he looks like one in my opinion but im not a breeder so im not 100% his head is a little thin if that makes sense british blue's tend to have quite wide faces. He has got the beautiful amber eyes of a british blue. He is lovely :001_wub:

    He's beautiful and certainly has a lot of the look of British Blue about him. Of course without knowing his parentage you could never be 100% certain but whatever he is, he is a stunning cat :001_tt1: Do you know anything about him or how he came to be in rescue?

    Thanks everyone!!! Ive only had him 2 days but I am already completely in love with him!! He is an awesome cat!! His old owners were boarding him where I work for like a month and then just decided to give him up! I have no clue why they would but I am happy they did:D
     
  13. He looks alot like one of my mates cats which is a british blue but i'd say his head was alot more rounder than yours. Prehaps he is a cross with british blue in him. He is gorgeous whatever he is. Lucky you & well done for giving him a nice home:)

    hes a nice boy to me he looks very much british blue the right colour the right colour eyes,id say the head is a litte on the small side as males of this breed have a big head and cheeks,unless he is still a bit young he might develop more yet but id say he looks 3/4 british blue,maybe 1 parent was british blue maybe the other was bsh cross who knows,its very close tho aint it hes gorgeous can i have him?;)
