I have become very curious recently on whether or not my cat is of the Siberian breed.
I have seen a cat that looks absolutely identical to him, who is one and that is where my wonder started.
We had adopted him from the pound around 8 months ago, He was brought in after his owners were arrested and sent to jail, so its not like he was a stray at all.
I figured I better ask you guys, as oppose to Yahoo Answers.
his instagram if you wish to check it out is @kinglouthecat
yeah its just an unfortunate circumstance where as I said the previous owners were arrested, which gets rid of any chance of proving it through papers.
Oh well, thanks anyways guys.
Maybe one day they'll work out a DNA test for cats like Wisdom Panel for dogs.
A quick google search turned up this -
I don't know anything about them. But it might offer you some options.
What's my cat's breed? I'm thinking Persian.
Mixes are even rarer than purebreds, because people who can afford them actually take care of them and fix them. He's a mutt. Just long hair isn't a Siberian trait. Not every curly haired dog is a purebred poodle, why do you think your cat is purebred Siberian because it has long fur?
Papers for a cat ... that's like having a certificate of authenticity for one of those little coins minted from the ruins of the world trade center.
Who gives a fuck? It's a cat. It's pretty much a collectable, except everyone collects them, so only have value to eccentrics and the cats themselves serve zero purpose - exactly like those damn coins
"Oh, but wait, you can prop up the little towers so they stand off the coin!"
... no, still don't give a shit.
Enjoy your animal as the companion it is. Bloodline only matters in keeping them disease free.
Dogs are, of course, a blaring exception to this. You don't buy a blender to chop down a tree. You don't want to be sold a pyrenees/toy poodle mix to guard your livestock.
You make a valid point but there are major behavioral differences between cat breeds and pretending that a Savannah or Bengal is just a Scottish Fold with a different paint job is pure ignorance.
So I can boost my ego and feel better about myself? And so I can feel different knowing my cat is unique? Fuck off shitlord. My cat is Siberian, at least that's the fact I'm going to enlighten my friends with, and that's final.
Ever thought of offing yourself? You prolly own some generic SHITcat. Goodbye.
there's no exceptions to this rule, DNA tests are meaningless in cats.
it doesn't matter how much it looks like a breed, if it doesn't have paperwork for it it isn't that breed.
Yeah it was more so for me to figure out whether or not he was, due to health concerns . Just trying to figure out if there is anything with his breed that would cause his problems recently.
I had just seen a cat identical to him, which was a Siberian, and that caused my initial question.
Op your cat is a mutt. Nothing wrong with that. Pic related is an actual Siberian.
