Yes, most cats fit under the category of Domestic Short, Medium, or Long hair, and then they add on a descriptive color such as white, tabby, black, calico...etc. Most cats are some kind of mix unless you know they came from a breeder. Some may have characteristics of certain breeds, like siamese or maine coon, and then you could classify them as a mixed breed. She sure is adorable though, and I doubt that it would be worth it to pay for any testing to be done, but it is available if you want it!

She is a DSH (domestic short hair) and the pattern looks like a tabby stripe. You could do blood test to be sure. She is just so sweet looking no matter what her breed.

I belive she is a Domestic Short Hair. She looks exactly like one. If you wanted to know for sure what she is there are tests, but the tests are expensive. Have fun with your adorible kitten!

Without any papers stating that she is a "purebred" of some kind, I believe your cute kitty will simply fall under the category of "Domestic Short Hair"!!!
