This is Skye! She is over 2 years old, blue with green eyes. I've seen a fair amount of pictures of Russian blues, but most look very slim with a long face. And Korats seem more thick/muscular. Any help?

She's lovely! I would describe Skye as a blue domestic shorthair. I'm not seeing any indication of Korat or Russian Blue ancestry in this picture. Blue cats are quite commonly seen in the domestic cat population, especially in the United States, and the color doesn't indicate any specific breed ancestry. Most cats are not any particular breed.

Agree, a nice domestic. That said, if you want to press her into some recognized breed somewhat look alike, to have something to compare with, so it will be korat, sooner than russian blue.
