Mini Quiz #2: Cat Breeds

Identify the following cat breeds. Since some breeds have a lot of diversity of colors and may look very similar to other breeds, I've give you six chances to get five points. That is, the maximum score is still 5/5, but you get six guesses and I'll take the best five of them.

What official breeds are these cats?


Oh, in case there are multiple contestants who get 5/5, the sixth answer will count, as the tiebreaker. If multiple people get 6/6, they all win!

Don't worry dog lovers, I'll get to you soon. Maybe even birds and reptiles, too...

I have no idea, but I dis recognize the ragdoll, and is #6 a siamese?

Metamatician said...

Nope, #6 is an Abyssinian. At least you spotted the ragdoll!

I'll do a dog one sometime and make them all Reggies or something :)

I missed the whiskas-ad kitten, silver too, but with wider stripes, I hoped someone will tell me its name. :D

Metamatician said...

Oh yeah, the Whiskas cat... hmm. American Shorthair, maybe?

If you didn't notice I'm not up on my cat breeds, I either like them or don't with little time taken to appreciate the pedigree. ;)

Metamatician said...

That's quite alright, I'm not much into the whole breeding thing, just like cats with good personalities, "breed" or street cat.

You got 4 and 6 right anyway!

2/5 Correct.

Raelha said...

You did a cat quiz without me :(

Metamatician said...

I'll do another soon - promise.

You'd have got all these anyway.

Hans said...

Congratulations Mandy!!!

Metamatician said...

And you, Hansies. I decided to award the prize to you both. The Egyptian Mau was called the Egyptian Silver Mau at one time, and oddly enough there was a famous one called "Princess" - but it was never part of the breed name.

Anyway, two winners are better than one! You can each have a statue of Bastet. Don't pounce on her, Hans! She might curse you and make your tail fall off.

Raelha said...

I would've got stuck on the Abyssinian.

Metamatician said...

That would still have netted you five points, in which case you can consider yourself a third winner of the Bastet statue.

Raelha said...

:D It'll look great in the lounge.
