Can You Guess the Popular Cat Breed Based on Its Kitten Picture?
We’ll give you a few hints, starting with: They’re not in alphabetical order. Just read the clues and try not to pass out from cuteness overload. Ready, set, guess!
I sometimes get teased for my ears
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) reports my ears are similar to the lynx, with long tufts fanning outward at a 90-degree arc. You might also recognize me for being perky and alert. I even wear a surprised expression that will likely make you smile. My breed comes in all colors and patterns, in both long and shorthair varieties. I am a medium-sized cat, and you will recognize my walnut-shaped eyes.
I am really talkative
My rasp or yowl might even come off as annoying, according to Petfinder. But you forget all that staring into my deep blue, almond-shaped eyes. My paws are dainty and oval-shaped, while my legs, neck, and tail are long. My ears are quite large, like the love we share snuggling on the couch. Here are all the secrets I would be telling you if I could talk.
I’m surrounded by myths and legends
I’m even the official cat of my state. I’m known for hunting mice and my coat is suited for harsh winters—but it doesn’t stop me from being incredibly soft. I have large, tufted paws which help me to walk on top of the snow even though I’m a bigger cat. My large, oval-shaped eyes usually come in green, gold, or copper, and under the right circumstances, they can even be blue. Vetstreet reports that my communication style is a chirping trill rather than a meow, an incongruous sound coming from a gentle giant.
While my silver-tipped, blue coat has a halo effect, that’s not all that makes me angelic. I’m super affectionate, plus, according to the CFA, there are five “hearts” around my body. My head looks like three hearts: one looking straight on, another by glancing at the top of my head, and the third is my nose. The fourth heart is seen in the chest area when I am sitting up, and the fifth heart is beating inside of me. Find out why cats purr.
Just don’t call me “Stumpy”

I’m known for being a working cat, so it’s good I’m strong, smart, and active. My most notable feature is what I lack: a full, fluffy tail. Vetstreet reports when there is no tail, we are called “rumpys.” But when at least three vertebrae are fused at the end of the spine, we are referred to as “rumpy risers.” For tails longer than a stump but shorter than a typical tail, we are called “longys.”
