Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


What breed am I?

I just adopted my kitten from the Honolulu Humane Society. He is fun and energetic- always up when we want to sleep. He is pretty vocal and VERY curious. He loved to be around people and to play with anything he can. He is shorthaired and is mostly grey and white. His legs have stripes and his body has spots. He has markings on his head that look like eyebrows or an "M". Does anyone know what breed he is, I have thought of some kind of Tabby or Ocicat? Thanks

    I would guess Tabby. I am no expert though. My kitten looks very similar. Stripes and spots. My vet called her coat "exotic". LOL!

    A "cat of unknown origin"., a mix-breed cat, is called a "Domestic Shorthair." A longhair cat of unknown origin is a Domestic Longhair. Your coat coloring is tabby, and contrary to popular belief "tabby" is NOT a breed or type of cat, but is a coat patterning. :-h

    :-h Hi Kona and welcome to Catster!! You look alot like me. I'm a Domestic Medium Hair with the coloration of a Tabby. I have the M (really a double M with a small m in the M) on my forehead, stripes on my legs and spots on my tummy. You are adorable (just like me)!! :)) |:|

    You are a brown tabby like me--and the up and down stripes and spots like we have makes us mackerel tabbies. There are 3 tabby patterns--Mackerel, like us, Classic, where the stipes make a bullseye on the kitty's side, and 'agouti, or ticked' where the stripes are not distinct but are a darker color on the end of each hair.

    Just to give a picture of what a classic tabby looks like, with the bullseye, Cowboy is a red classic tabby. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
