If you happen to be the owner of an undocumented cat or kitten, but the color of your cat seems to you noble, then you can assume that she has pedigree parents and even name the breed with a certain accuracy. However, without a pedigree issued by the club, the cat is still an outbred animal and will not be able to participate in exhibitions and be a producer of purebred kittens.
It is necessary
Atlas of cat breeds and a description of the characteristics of the breeds. Photos of your cat
The breed is a group of domestic cats recognized by international felinological organizations.
Thoroughbred animals are animals whose pedigree is confirmed by the club. By purchasing a kitten in a certified cattery, you can be sure of the "noble" origin of your pet. The pedigree indicates the breed of the kitten, the names of three generations of its ancestors and the features of the color of the animal.
In the absence of a pedigree, the cat is considered a mongrel, even if its color suggests that it has pedigree parents. You can compare the exterior of your cat with typical representatives of the breeds from the photographs in the atlas of cats (such atlases are available in bookstores and on the Internet: http://funcats.by/breeds/ or http://www.kotikoshka.ru/atlas/). In addition, the features of the color and character of the cat must comply with the standards of a particular breed
If you took a small kitten without documents or picked it up on the street, then it is better not to rush to determine the breed. The fact is that some features of color are manifested only in adult animals. For example, white cats often have dark spots on their heads as children, which later disappear.
