So sorry for your loss of belle Run free sweet girlThank y’all for your help, and your compliments to them.The white one was Belle, we lost her 10 days ago at age 14, and we’re still crushed. But I wanted to try to type her as well.
The black one is Frosty, he’s 14 as well and has thankfully gotten a clean bill of health. He’s 18 lbs of overly sweet and friendly!
we of course don’t know what their parents looked like, but I’ll tell what we know and a couple things folks have mentioned in the past, I know sometimes personality traits are associated with some breeds.
On our Belle-she was a feral kitten rescue. We briefly saw a couple other kittens in her litter, they were white with black and yellow spots, and long haired like her. She could have had numerous things in her, but she was addressed as a Persian mix in her lifetime, even though her nose was not all the way flat, some said it was slightly flatter compared to other breeds. In personality, she was our little ninja. Excellent hunter in the house (those feral genes maybe), dominant force in the house, tended to push Frosty around, but was very sweet, smart, and funny. She’d sit and hiss at the mailman. We miss her desperately.
On our Frosty-he was a found stray in a parking lot, and was terrified. We scooped him up, took him to the vet, she estimated his age at around 3, and we’ve had him 11 years. So we have no clue what his ancestors look like, but a lot of people on him say maybe Maine Coon in him, he does have the mane, size, and he’s definitely a gentle giant that makes friends very easy. Hes overall a laid back sweetheart.Thanks for noticing that dot of white on him!
Though I tend to agree, that they are just longhairs that people think they see partial breeds in them...
