>>2042299 >>2042311 First of all, with a cat or any domesticated animal, it would be called a breed, not a race. Second of all, that's just what would be called a domestic.
Unless you're into cat breeding or go to cat shows, or know somebody who is into that kinda thing, then like 99% of the cats you see are just called domestics. It's just a plain old cat, no specific breed.
>>2042427 I don't really get that logic. If someone buy a purebred ragdoll from a breeder then it ends up in a shelter, does it stop being that ragdoll? You'd need DNA tests to be sure it's purebred but it's a valid (though annoying) question.
>>2042834 >they're either pure bred with paperwork or they're mutts.
To be fair you still often see people saying "Lab mix" or "siamese" even when they don't have papers, and there's nothing strictly wrong with that.
Of course it's more accurate with cats to say domestic short hair dilute point or whatever, but nobody's going to get that detailed when you could just say "I think he's part siamese!" because nobody irl cares.
OP, the cat is a Domestic Longhair, probably not a purebred, looks white and grey, probably photoshopped eyes though many breeds have a tendency to have odd eyes, for example the japanese bobtail. Search 'cat odd eyes' for more photos of this if that's what you're looking for.
>>2042899 All of the cats in the google image search are clearly prize winning cats that are perfectly groomed and deliberately set on display with customized backgrounds to show off their best traits via contrast.
While the cat in OP's pic is clearly an outside cat that hasn't been brushed lately and is covered in dirt.
Of course there is going to be a difference. Just like a white poodle would look nothing like a pedigree poodle in pictures if it's fur wasn't properly groomed and it was covered in filth.
I agree with this. I'd sooner believe it had some maine coon before believing it was a turkish anything. That's my best guess if we need a label for the mix, but even then it's hardly relevant in this case.
Obviously determining possible breeds in a mix can be useful for things like temperament, noise, and size etc but it doesn't really matter here. OP might want to know because he wants to get one and whatever this cat is it's one of a kind, and no "it might be maybe a little bit beagle" is going to help him with that.
