Hi there,

I rescued a kitten the past two days from and egyptian family across the road she was thrown out onto the street and riddled with fleas. They have now given me ownership of the cat but after much dilberation I am trying to acertain if she is a Bengal or even a corss. Please could anyone offer some advice?

Thanks

I would tend to say not Bengal, though there may be some in the background. Egyptian Mau is also possible.

What is the colouring, looks charcoal/grey with white on the picture.

Importantly, how bad were the fleas; if you brought the kitten in then treated have you also treated the house areas?

Hiya,

I have had cats before and therefore treated the house hoovered everyday they are all dead now which is great. Yes could very well be Egyptian mau I did get from and an Egyptian family! Who knows may be a cross or something?

Oh colour is grey with bits of white.

Thanks for your help..

Probably a tabby with some breed in the background then. Grey leads more to Mau, but could be diluted Bengal.
At least she has a home to be appreciated.

Whatever her breed, she looks lovely and good on you for giving her a home. Do you know how old she is?

Aww bless her. That's quite young for a kitten to have been taken from its mum - most Bengals don't get homed until about 16 weeks. Why did the family have the kitten and then throw it out? Thank goodness she's got a new start with you.

It was given to them as a gift but they did not want it. Barely speak english so I do not know.. They just put her in the bin outside! Awful I know but she is all settled now :) I do not think she is a Bengal I could only wish but she does look like a mix of something exotic due to the spots! Heres another pic..

She's very sweet and she looks nice and settled already. I've just got 3 rescue kittens from Animal Concern to join my Bengal and I must admit I get a special buzz when I see them relaxed and purring without a care in the world. Life could have been so different for them and it's the same with your little one. She does look as if she might have some exotic blood in her - like you say, it might be Egyptian Mau - the eyes should be a clue as I think they're green in Mau's.

good for you fluffy_monkey, its always good to hear of a cat being rescued especially in extreme circumstances as yours was. I am sure you will give the kitten a special home and she will be loved more. Have you got a name for her.

congratulations to you for little tammy, thank goodness for you taking her in. she'll have a happy life now :D
pedigree cats are usually homed at 13 weeks (a week after their course of vaccinations is complete) but unfortunately the majority of moggies are homed at 8 weeks or even less :shock: it's ever so young, but hopefully she'll bond with you & forget about her bad start :wink:

She's cute ! :D

But I'd say she's 100% pure brown tabby DSH ;).

The spotted pattern exists in moggy, not only in some breeds... I've got a brown spotted moggy ;).

And she doesn't look like an Egyptian mau (who are often silver and not brown) or an Occicat either.

how about reporting them...they need to know that that sort of behaviour isn't acceptable here. People make me sick -at least she is safe now.
