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.

    When I got my cat I tried to figure out what breed she is. She has the turkish van coloring but I know she\'s not that. I found out that there are plenty of mutt-cats with that coloring. Chances are that if you didn\'t get your cat from a breeder, it\'s not a \"pure\" breed. If it has a flat face, perhaps it has some persian in it\'s ancestry. Try browsing through the breeds on this page and see what it most resembles:

    I'm not very sure what I am! When I saw a Turkish Angora I thought I looked like one, but my family thinks I am a DLH.:-k

    Yours is probably a himilayn mix. Most domestic longhairs aren't mixes with any purebreed though. Yours could have been a Siamese mix but judging the head I'd say Himilayn.

    My vet said when I was rescued that I was 8-9 weeks old and that I was a DMH, however my owners now think with my fascination of knocking over water & playing in it that I might be a Maine Coon, so Mom contaced a breeder and sent a picture & he said maybe a NFC, or \'wegie\'...What do you all think I am?
