Anybody know what breed my cat is? Siberian?

I rescued my cat from a shelter when she was 11 months old. She's pretty long haired, but doesn't really leave too much hair laying around.

Eyes are big and get really wide. Coat is extreeeemely soft, like a stuffed animal. She's all black, but has symmetrical spots above her eyes where her hair is noticeably thinner and you can see her skin, and on her chest she has a small patch of hair that's greyish. She's not very big, but she is young still. Weighs about 8 pounds currently at 1 1/4 years old. Looong bushy tail, that she often curls around her body when she's sitting down.

She's very patient, will let you hold her but truth be told is not crazy about it. She'll oftentimes sit in my lap and purr. Usually climbs into bed at night on sleeps on my chest.

Seems that she might be a Siberian, or a Ragamuffin. Not sure. Any ideas?

Made a profile with some photos.

Isis is a pretty cat. Cats do not have breeds like the dog world. 95% of cats are Domestic Shorthairs, Mediumhair, or Longhairs respectively. A cat only has a breed if obtained from a reputable breeder and is registered with papers. Only about 5% of cats are purebreds. Guessing the background of a Domestic mix cat is just that - a guess. Isis doesn't need a breed.
