Aby-a-Day – 6 Maj: Cat Scanner app (Thursday Things)

Yesterday in one of my Facebook cat groups, someone posted about an app, Cat Scanner, that claims to identify what breed your cat is from a photograph. So of course I had to try it out.

It worked great with the Abyssinians.

It even identified Angel correctly.

And it got Markis pretty well, too.

I was disappointed with how it did with Tessie. I was expecting perhaps a Burmilla…but I guess at least it could tell she’s a tortie?

And then…there was Izaak. Complete and utter fail. I was expecting a Singapura to be a fairly easy ID…at worst, maybe a Burmese or Aby…but a Bengal!? Seriously? Well, you know I clicked that “Am I right?” link to tell them they weren’t. And the explanation was…the app only really works with FIFe-recognised breeds.

Um….what!? Singas have been recognised in FIFe since 2014…SEVEN YEARS!

Which, naturally, I felt the need to tell them. Haven’t gotten a response yet, but I can’t wait to see what they say.

  1. Perhaps they scanned Zak’s soul rather than his features. I’m sure on the inside he’s as proud and wild as a Bengal.
