What Breed Do I Look Like?
About nine months ago I found Gypsy at the Humane Society, she was found as a stray. She looked quite different from other cats as well as her personality. Out of curiosity I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on the possible type of breed.
In my opinion she looks like a Lynx Tabby Colorpoint. Her eyes are blue and she has the M on her forehead with the same on her ears. The Humane Society just listed her breed as Siamese mix. She is such a sweetheart!

Hi Lindsay and thank you for your photo of Gypsy. She's adorable!
In my opinion the Humane Society were correct to list her as a Siamese mix, as without proper papers it isn't possible to tell whether a cat like Gypsy is a full Siamese or not.
However, all cats with this coloring and blue eyes will have at least some Siamese genes, and you are right that she is a Lynx (Tabby) Point.
It's difficult to tell from the photo whether she's a Seal or Blue Lynx Point (in the picture she looks more like a Blue), but if anyone has any opinions on this, do join in!
