As cat lovers at Daily News America we love cute cat pictures but we also love knowing exactly what those little furry friends of ours actually are roaming around next to us. Turns out there’s a cat scanner on your phone (not to be confused with the medical scan.)
In the IOS/Android store the following app will allow you to hold it up to your cat and it will explain to you what kind of cat you actually have. I was surprised to learn that I had a rare French cat and a Tortoiseshell cat. I was not aware of either of such during their initial adoptions.
The app is called “Cat Scanner” in both stores and it is mostly accurate. It correctly identified my Turtoiseshell Cat and my Russian Blue/Chartreux cat.
