I just realized iPhone has a new feature that will ID a cat (also plant, dog etc). Just thought it was cool! Does it seem to be accurate?
Thank you. That is exactly what I was askingI think Siri is confused. You'd probably get better information asking a stranger on the street.
The only one that might be considered a lookalike is the first one that Siri identifies as a Bombay. There are some similarities to your cat in the shape of the head and eyes. The Burmese is completely off.
The similarity in your cat to the Siamese and Balinese is that they are all pointed cats (cooler "points" on the cats are a darker color). The Siamese has a different body type and head type, and the Balinese is a longhair cat.
For your tabby, both Egyptian Mau and American Shorthair are completely off. No similarity in tabby pattern, body type, head, etc.
While the app can be fun to try, I wouldn't trust it to identify a cat that I absolutely know is a specific breed.
Your cat, may not be Siamese. Many domestic cats are pointed like yours. Unless you got them from a breeder and have their pedigrees ("papers") most likely they are pointed domestic cats.that’s pretty much what I was asking in my original post. Aside from knowing my cats are siamese, I have no idea about cat breeds. I always go “uhhhhh” when they ask me that at the vet
Ahh ok. They def aren’t pedigree. Their mom was pure black! Her litter had a black cat, a black and white cat and my 2Your cat, may not be Siamese. Many domestic cats are pointed like yours.
