Default What breed please???

Hi,

Just bought this gorgeous kitten but am curious as to the breed. Was led to believe a British blue but pretty sure he isn't. Saw the apparent father and again didn't look to be as not broad enough and a little pointy. I just don't know if they fill out more when they're older. There were also a couple of NFC's in the house (I've owned one before and recognised it) which I think is the more likely - not fully I know but he is pointy and has a very faint gold/tortishell in his thick short grey coat. Any help would be much appreciated.

HI, Moggymeow ! Welcome. Your kitty looks a bit like a Russian Blue, but not sure why he is more pointy than broad ? Anyway, it doesn't really matter, does it ? You'll still spoil your kitten to bits... coz, he's just gorgeous ! Concats ! What is his name ?

Cool

Irene is correct. He looks like a Blue Russian.
British Blue Shorthairs have rounded heads & pecked faces, like my Lady Brenda (below pic)

Maybe he is a mix. He does have a special kind of look. Not quite like a Russian blue, maybe he is 50% RB and 50% NFC? Handsome boy, anyways

I previously mentioned that he is a "bit" like a Russian Blue, and looks more like one than a British blue (Maya is right, coz her Lady Brenda is, you can compare with Lady's picture), but he is definetely NOT pure RB. I think Kathrine is also right, your boy is a mix, he may have some RB and and some NFC in him (not sure about the percentage). But as I said before, he is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous ! And no one would care about his breed anymore. Gotta love him to bits ! My Russian Blue boy, Earl Blue is sending him his furry hugs !

I agree with Katrine. He looks like a Russian Blue/ Norweigan forest cross. I have an NFC and he has certain traits that would show up in a mix. But he could just be a mutt- 99% of cats are, unlike dogs (I think they are more like 70%)... and it doesn't matter, really. He is quite handsome. Congrats!

Hi there!

Is he a purebred cat? He could, in fact, be a little bit of what you think he is, but another breed could be mixed in there to give him his questionable features.
