We adopted my cat from a shelter, and have no idea what her breed is! She is quite small, very fast and intelligent. Her fur is quite dense and incredibly soft, and she has a dense undercoat. Any ideas ?

Most cats aren't just one breed. Most likely she's a grey domestic shorthair, possibly a medium hair.
Beautiful eyes, though.

Your kitten has a great expressive face and beautiful eyes.
Did you name her Sophie?
Thank you, she’s so cute! Her name is actually Luna 🌙

Nice! Is there any silver shimmer in her blue grey coat?

Ie any silvertipping on her hair?

If so, I would say she is a good look alike to a russian blue.

If not, the likeliness is decent but lower...

Yes the tips of her fur are silver! It makes her paws and nose look a lot lighter :) her fur is also very very silky and smooth, much like velvet but softer.

She is so pretty💕 She does remind me of a Russian Blue but I think they mostly are more slender and have brilliant green eyes. One of my fb friends has a pb rb. So a dsh blue beauty. Her fur is beautiful.

Yes, I don’t think she is a Russian blue as I believe they are hypoallergenic. And unfortunately Luna sets off peoples cat allergies 😭❤

Well, no cat is completely free of allergens but some breeds have less of the proteins, but it depends on each person as well. Siberians are supposed to be good for people with severe cat allergies.
