Nebelung Mix? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Post  foxmulder on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:56 pm

Hello! I'm new to the board and recently acquainted with the breed. This forum has been a great source of information!

I see that the board is inundated with questions from people wondering if their grey cat is also a Nebelung. Unfortunately, I am no exception! I recently adopted a kitten from a rescue that takes animals from kill shelters in Georgia and adopts them out to people in NY. My kitten made the trip up with his littermate who was a fluffy black and white kitten. Long story short, despite being kin to a kitten who is quite obviously NOT a nebelung I believe my kitten shares an alarming number of similarities with the breed.

Gucci is about five months old now and has a very long body and tail. His coat is grey with a blue tinge and definite silver tracers at the end of his coat (which has been remarked upon by many). His eyes are yellow/light green but he has a distinct ring of green around his pupil. He is one of the most intelligent and affectionate cats I have ever come across and definitely fits the description of the nebelung personality.

So, without further ado I will share some photos and ask for your opinions. Do you think there's some russian blue or nebelung in this little guy's lineage? I realize he can't truly be a nebelung without the pedigree but it would be interesting if you thought he shared some of their traits.

Hello foxmulder

I think you did a wonderful thing by adopting a kitty and you did yourself a great favour by adopting a Nebelung. Since a Nebelung is a naturally occuring mutation that was then made into a breed (what a splendid idea!) I would say your boy is Nebelung.

I too had a natural Nebelung for 6 1/2 years and it was a terrific experience for me. He was totally devoted to me and very smart.

I hope you and he have a long happy healthy life together and please post more pics!
