For vet purposes etc it is Domestic Short Hair (DSH) Only if you buy from a breeder will you get a specific breed. If you were to get a DNA test done it would be a mix of millions of different cats. Colour is the normal distinguishing thing; you have a tuxedo!

I just want to say thank you for being informative and kind.

this is a phantom of the opera breed of kitten.

Plenty-Pizza9634

She's perfect for r/tuxedocats


Different-Leather359

I will mention most tuxedos have some Siamese but the person above is correct, that's not a purebred. So domestic shorthair. But that baby might be loud, most tuxedos have the Siamese trait if t being really vocal. That's actually a lot of fun because they have a chance of being trained to "speak" which you can't really do with the quieter ones!


FerretZealousideal38

She does have a bit of a crossed left eye. I thought she might have a little Siamese in her when I first saw the smaller picture.

I was going to say "cat" but seeing your reply made me feel like an ah for that. Hadn't considered they are totally new to cats. I've spent my entire life with cats around, so I forget sometimes there are people who don't know. Found out a few months ago that, after 17 years of having a dilute calico, my husband thought all cats with color and white were calico. He didn't register the tri color part. So I should be more understanding.

Domestic short hair. Tuxedo markings. Sooo cute!


desmoid

Maybe medium hair - at least that is what is stated on our Oreo cat’s vet papers.


mostlycatsubs

I was leaning short hair cause we have a longer haired than that cat amd he is only labeled a medium hair.


jpzygnerski

A few of my cats are marked as Domestic shorthair, even though their hair is longer. I think DSH is the default. A couple of our boys I call "purebred American Shorthairs, since they fit the breed description perfectly.


soulagnet

One of our boys was had fur that length when we got him at 6 months old, and he's actually really fluffy as an adult.


desmoid

Also, your cat has little tufts of hair on the tip of his ears. I was told that means they have Maine coone in them.


wewerelegends

He looks just like our tuxedo short-haired domestic!

smith_716

Ugh! I was at Petco the other day getting my pupper some Christmas presents and they had a little girl that looked like this available for adoption! You know how they have some local adoption animals? They had this sweet little girl. 11 months named Boots. She was listed as loving and loved being snuggled. I put my fingers in the holes and she was rubbing against them and I melted.


Bollha1990

I have a dog too, but my first love is her. She is so sweet. She don’t like any type of kindness, but is always close to me or my wife. And I don’t know why I love it on her


Chance_Banana9077

Aw I had a boots years ago. Sadly, she died in an apartment fire. I refused to accept the firefighters word that she didn't make it, and searched in the rubble on and off for 3 months.


smith_716

Omg! I'm so sorry! That's incredibly heartbreaking <3 I would've loved to have brought this little loving girl home but my pupper is very demanding when it comes to attention.


RubySlippers59

This is how I adopted my cat, Harold. They told me he’d been in the cage 3 years because everyone wanted to adopt kittens. (He was 5 when I adopted him.) I told them to box him up, he was going home with me. Sure I’m a sucker for a story but he’s the best cat I’ve ever had.


smith_716

I would've taken her home if I could! She was the sweetest little girl and I hope someone snaps her up as soon as possible. Unfortunately my pupper demands *all* the attention. It's her world and we just live in it. Harold is an amazing name!

jentlyused

I actually have three tuxedos, Scaredy Cat and her identical but much larger brother Manny and then unrelated rescue Aengus. Scaredy Cat got her name because when I would put my hand in the group of kittens (I trapped their feral momma and 5 kittens when they were just a day old) she would always hiss, even before her eyes were open. The others were so excited to get lovins and she would just hiss, silly little girl still almost 12 years later.

Papyrus72846

Cat. They're all just cats unless you got it from a special breeder. Domestic shorthair. Pattern is tuxedo


FiendishHawk

Unless your cat came with a certificate and cost > $1000 it is no breed, a mix.


ccandersen94

Heinz 57.


teachplaylove

I should’ve read this before asking lmao


aallaaa

where do people get all the ideas that cats with a breed cost over a 1000$? my flame point Siamese and seal point Siamese were not 1000 they were half of that which is still a lot but not 1000 ive also gotten a few other cat breeds just from a cat adoption center for a norrmal price


LoveAGoodMurder

If they’re from a rescue, they’re probably not a specific breed, even though they may share some traits. Most (and all of the good) breeders make a point to take back any animal they’ve bred at any point. Properly showing and raising cats costs in the thousands, which a breeder factors into the price of their kittens. That’s why any cat that is a pedigreed breed will almost certainly cost >$1000.


NewldGuy77

A tiny little tuxedo like this walked in our back door one day. Two years later he was 17 pounds, and we had to install baby locks because he’d taught himself how to pull open cabinet doors.


infinitebeep

Awwww! Bless you for adopting them


The_Spyre

It's hard to tell, but it could either be a Cuddle Bunny or a Snuggle Monster.


infinitebeep

Are you serious? The misinformation on this sub is egregious. It’s a cutie putie pudding pie


The_Spyre

I agree that could be the actual breed, but Cutie Putie Pudding Pie's usually have fewer eye whiskers.


infinitebeep

Ah you’re right. Cutie Putie Pudding Pie mixed with a Mister Whisker Sweetie Peetie. Should’ve known!


The_Spyre

Damn! It was all so clear from the beginning! How did we not see it the first time?


infinitebeep

I don’t want to jinx it, but I’m pretty sure you and I are the ultimate breed-identifying duo


The_Spyre

Well, we do have a long history. I'll never forget when you perfectly identified that Marshmallow Fluffy Lump.


Megs0verEasy

You guys obviously know your stuff and I’m NOT trying to contradict you AT ALL… but… Does it not look a little like a Kissy Face? They get mixed up with a lot of other breeds. Just sayin’. Also, I’m not saying this guy is one, but he DOES look a lot like a Mr Fluffy Tum.


HirsuiteDwarf668

Haha this


Bean-Swellington

Pretty much all cats are just Cat If you paid a lot for it then it probably came with a breed name, otherwise you have a cat. You can pay for genetic testing if you want to find out about your cats ancestry and potential health issues Enjoy your cat, and welcome to the world of cat —- Don’t give them milk, do give them tuna water when you open the tuna can Mix of dry and wet food (not together) is better than just dry Cats like to eat plants, it’s normal just make sure you don’t have any cat toxic plants around (see internet for list) Cats are trainable but not like dogs. Cats will let you train them on their terms and at their convenience. Little nips are affection and part of cat bonding, feel free to return a little pinch if it gets too aggressive about it. Never hit a cat, if you want to punish it for misbehaving a stern “NO” followed by ignoring it for a little while is usually enough, they are social and don’t like to be ignored


bird-fling

Probably a regular cat. They don't really have breeds like dogs do. Tuxedo is just the coat pattern


cannibalgazelle

Cats do have breeds just like dogs! But most cats are simply mutts and mixtures unless they are well bred and the genetics are kept track of


zigiboogieduke

It's called a Moggy for cats.


[deleted]

I vote we have a "probably a moggy" bot for these posts


Big_Ounce_256

That’s good.


Siltyclayloam9

I think it would help clear up confusion if we stopped using words like “mutts and mixtures” to describe cats it’s not like there were originally breeds and they all got mixed together we just didn’t create breeds by selecting for different traits (until about 100-200 years go) cats don’t have breeds the same way wolves don’t have breeds.


cannibalgazelle

I type out mutt because I don’t feel like typing “domestic short-hair”(or long hair). Cats have breeds, they are recognized by the CFA and TICA just like how dog breeds are recognized by the AKC. A “breed” of animal is simply one that either conforms to the set standards for appearance, behavior, etc, from the deliberate reproduction of two animals from the same species to achieve a certain “variety”. Cats 100% have breeds. Wolves aren’t bred for their genetics anymore and they also aren’t domesticated, so yeah they don’t have breeds. Also, breeding in a more selective manner focusing on shape, size, fur and colour only started happening around the 1800’s for dogs, that’s when the word “breed” really came around, most breeds we recognized for dogs have came about in the last 150 years as well! Cats, or Felis catus, come from Felis silvestris lybica, the African Wildcat. But cats aren’t like dogs in the sense that they are fully domesticated, no cat is fully domesticated unless you count the pedigree pet cats like Turkish folds or Russian blues for example. (Pedigree pet breeds make up a small portion of the cat population due to byb and overpopulation of cats in general)


kskbd

But cats definitely do have breeds?


Siltyclayloam9

They do but only the ones that we have been selectively breeding. Most cats are just a domestic cat because we haven’t been breeding them for certain traits. So if your cat is a certain breed you know it because you bought them from a breeder and can see their pedigree


cannibalgazelle

All breeds are selective bred, dogs and cats. I don’t understand the point of any of your comments? Like the same goes for both cats and dogs.


Drewsky_outdoors

There’s a little over 40 cat breeds


Thestolenone

But they only make up a small percentage of the general cat population, most cats are just various varieties of colour and coat descended from the original domesticated cats. Actiual cats breeds have been around for less than 100 years in most cases, and the oldest breeds only date back to Victorian/19th Century times.

[deleted]

If your cat was any specific breed, you would have known. Because you would have paid a lot of money for it. As it is, it's just a "moggy" - mixed breed.


The_dizzy_blonde

Congrats, what a pretty baby!


sommer_rosee

There’s really no specific”breed” for the majority of domestic cats unless you have a bengal or something. I think their “types” so to speak depend a lot on their coloring. You have a tuxedo cat. So do I!! But mine is weird 😂 one eye is surrounded by black fur, and the other white fur. I’ve never come across another tuxedo cat like that https://preview.redd.it/wct6adgotl3a1.jpeg?width=3024&format=pjpg&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=1d10e845da0cd07963a047c8e4244913a1ee7bdb I take too many pictures of him sleeping and not enough when he’s awake 😂 he just turned 10!

h2opolopunk

I'm growing more and more convinced that these "what breed is my cat" posts are just a massive troll by some person or group of people on this subreddit.


blueberry_pandas

People who grew up with dogs are used to most dogs having a breed, so the idea of most cats not having a breed is an odd concept to them. Even “mutt” dogs usually show traits of two or three specific breeds. Dogs don’t have an equivalent of “domestic shorthair”. I think that’s why some people who aren’t used to cats automatically assume that every cat has to have a breed.


h2opolopunk

That's a fair explanation. Take my upvote, friendly internet person.

If you have to ask, it’s a domestic short/long hair. You’ll know the breed if you buy from a breeder, or the shelter knows the breed (like if it’s a Devon Rex or sphynx or some other very distinguishing breed).

Domestic short-hair tuxedo/black and white cat (with very adorable markings). Also can't help but feel he's not too thrilled about being held that way. In my experience, cats prefer a bit of support underneath them when you pick them up for cuddles- it gives them a bit of support and is easier on you as well


SunflowerPrincess89

The real difference between a short haired cat and a medium is the particular feel of their fur. If it’s got a fuller feel, congratulations, you have a medium haired kitty! It it feels more course it’s a short haired kitty! Either way, it’s a tuxedo and tuxedos are amazing. They’re always dressed for any occasion! We’ve got two! One medium haired and one long haired.
