You can read more about Polycats here – but if you don’t want to go read about it, this sums it up: Polycats are domestic cats of (yet) unknown origins. I’m mostly surprised that he’s got no Norwegian Forest Cat in him, but also surprised that he’s 5% Peterbald.
So basically he’s a mutt. (Of course, as more people DNA test their cats, the more information they’ll have to draw from, and maybe the test will pop up with something surprising. It’s entirely possible!) I’ve added his results to his page (which is accessible via the sidebar if you ever want to refer to it again in the future).
