    LOL at "reflectors on the top of its eye lids". WTF are you talking about?

    Unless you have papers to prove otherwise your cat is simply a "domestic" - no breed at all just like over 97% of the cats on this entire planet.

    Further proof it isn't a specific breed: a black cat of a specific breed would be solid black while it's VERY rare to find a black domestic that doesn't have a small patch of white on its chest or elsewhere on its body - even just a few hairs. That's because black cats were so persecuted over the centuries as "evil" so most black domestics have some white DNA in their background.

    Love how everyone assumes that a cat without a tail or a short tail is immediately a "Manx". You wouldn't have a Manx unless you bought one from a breeder. The fact this cat has a short tail is simply a birth defect or because one of its parents had a short tail.

    From the short tail it could be a Manx if the tail was a natural product. If the cat has tufts of hair on it's ears, it is most likely a Manx, or Manx cross, since it has long hair. You could just classify it as a domestic long hair for vet purposes. This basically covers any cat that doesn't meet breed specifics.

    W/O a pedigree or registration papers, you have a black domestic shorthair of no particular breed.

    Probably just a mixed breed. 99% of cats are just mixed breed.
