    Hi everyone,
    I got a 4 months old female kitty and I’m just curious to find out which breed she could be. When we got her, they said she is just a tabby cat but I’m not convinced.
    I will attach some picture so I hope they can help you to figure out the breed.
    Thank you so much in advance for your help!

    Tabby is a coat pattern, not a breed, however I would say that your kitten is of no specific breed. She is a pretty tabby domestic short hair or moggy and absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    Lol not sure I’d say tabby moggie to be honest, a gorgeous girl. What breed do you think she is? Are you thinking Bengal cross?

    I don’t know but it looks like she has got black spots and not strikes on her coat and she has pointed hears. So I was just wondering if she could be a mix breed and if there is a breed with these characteristics!

    @Nicola234 To be honest, I was think about Bengal cross. Is it a possibility?

    I thought that but you’d need to ask the Bengal breeders

    This is the 3rd or 4th time you've asked about breeds.
    If you want a certain breed you need to go to a reputable, registered breeder.

    Otherwise there is nothing less special about having moggies.
    She does not resemble a Bengal. Any brown tabby will have black markings, most tabby cats have spotted bellies, broken mackerel or spotted tabby moggies are not uncommon. Bengals have small, rounded ears, not pointy.

    I hope she is spayed and your male neutered.

    Is this the same girl as before?

    Unfortunately the fact remains that unless you have pedigree papers from your breeder the cat is still an indeterminate mixed breed, nothing and no-one will change that.
    Is there a particular reason why you need to know the ancestry? The obvious person to ask is the breeder of your cat.

    She is just a spotted tabby moggy. She isn't a breed but she is very pretty and you should just enjoy her for what she is. A pretty pet.

    Why do people want to call every nicely marked tabby a Bengal cross? There are plenty of beautifully marked domestics and she is one. Bengal breeders - the ethical ones that is - will tell you exactly the same.

    Please make sure to spay her by 6 months old. Current recommendations are 4 months.
