    IMG_0596.JPG IMG_0506.JPG IMG_1151.JPG I have a beautiful cream color, medium length hair rescue kitty. His flame points (particularly tail & feet) have gotten more pronounced as he has aged. He has blue eyes and a diva personality, typically hissing or growling when he dislikes or is unsure of anyone. Being an only cat would be his preference, but he has finally formed a "friendship" with the other adult male, playing chase & wrestling which can get too rough at times. Snowy was very antisocial when I first got him, but after several years he now finally sits on my lap for short periods & initiates nose rubs. Preferred sleeping place is above my head on couch or chair. He is an amazing high jumper. His face (under the fur) is small & kind of triangular. What do you think might be in his breed mix? Siamese? Himalayan? Persian? Ragdoll? Birman? Thanks for your best guesses.

    Maybe we can compare him to a pointed Siberian?

    This is a misunderstanding, but spread further by a popular TV-program (the 101 cats?).

    The M is typical for all tabbies. Connection with Maine Coon? Maine coon are very often tabbies, so - in part its true sort off - Maine Coons usually do have this M on their forehead. :)

    He is about 9 lbs now that he is completely indoors. When outside, it was hard to keep weight on him. Lots of tree climbing and running around on the roof.

    All of my tabbies have M's on their foreheads. I thought maybe Snowy has some dilute orange tabby in him?

    Tabby is a coat marking, not a breed in itself. Snowy’s points do have tabby markings, so you could call him a flame lynx point. Lynx point is the official name for a point with tabby markings.

    All reds are tabbies so often we dont call them for tabbies. It wouldnt be no sport. But sometimes they have the markings really distinct and clear. If so we do call them for tabbies. :)
