    Hello everyone!

    for the past five years, I've been wondering what breed my cat is. Her name is Jolie and I adopted her from a local rescue. She's a very exotic looking cat, especially with her huge green eyes. Not to mention, her behavior is like nothing I've ever seen in a cat. She enjoys playing fetch, likes water, and seems more like a puppy in a cat suit. Anyway, I've narrowed down her breed to either being a Bengal or maybe even a bronze Egyptian Mau. Seeing as the two breeds look very similar, I'd love for your guys' input. Here are some pictures of my girl:

    Bengals, Egyptian Maus (and even Savanahs) look very alike to my untrained eyes so I have no idea! [​IMG]  But she is so pretty and beautiful! I've always wanted a cat like a Bengal

    Did you read the links that are on the home page for Describing Cats Forum. They are right under the name of the forum.

    I myself would thrown in an Ocicat as a possible idea.    Compare not just the pattern of spots, but also, which breeds in question encourage green eyes.

    Technically he is a spotted tabby, and MAY be domestic, however his looks.

    But I agree, its not impossible he is a purebred.  There are several not too impossible variations where a purebredd preg queen may get homeless and come into a shelter.

    Sweet boy!
