10. I did tell my vet about one of the

2 breeds that I suspect because I learned that it has a sensitivity to some sedatives that requires using lower doses or alternative meds. The vet noted it on my cat's chart.

Normally, I wouldn't care about my cat's breed history. I got her from a coworker and knew that the cat's mother was not pedigreed so I had no expectations. I was just happy to have another cat 6 months after my previous one had died.

But very early I noticed some distinctive behaviors unlike any cats I had known and looked them up. They fit two separate breeds that I learned are both used for cross-breeding with a wildcat to create a hybrid breed. It would explain why my cat has traits of the two breeds. There is a breeder of this hybrid cat in my area.

So I'd like to confirm whether my cat has a sensitivity to sedatives. I'd also like to know if her recent history includes a hybrid domestic and wildcat mix. I've joked that she's more wild than pet, but now realize that it might actually be partially true.

These tests can't hurt the cat. They require a saliva sample, so if anyone gets hurt, it will be me trying to get the sample from my cat.
