DesertZephyr: I can't see that Valerie's truly pointed. Her face and what I can see of her body are pretty uniform in color... tho I can see some lighter color patching on one side of her face.... like she's a blue/cream/lilac combo thingy..

Well, she's certainly not purebred. The older she gets (she's 3 now) the darker her body gets. All that blue/cream/lilac thingy has some some darker colors too...maybe chocolate? She was born white, I think. Here she is at about 2 weeks, our first meeting.

farm5.static.flickr.com

She's about 1 year old here. One paw dark, the others dilute tortie in blue/cream/lilac. Tail half solid, half "something else." Back has the dilute colors flecked over the darker ones, but they are low contrast so it's hard to see. I should take better photos of the details.

farm5.static.flickr.com

And here's her "tortie ear." Tabby pattern ever so slighly evident on back of head. (Sister Rose has the "butterfly!" I never noticed it before. I'll take photos later.

farm5.static.flickr.com

I'm open to suggestions. At the vet, we call her a "Siamese-type, color tortishell."

Oh, and Happy Birthday!

predle: This is how someone on ICHC tried to describe Lucy's coloring.

/I always thought she was Calico because of the white, but now I'm not sure.
//Actually I thought the picture was amazing because she had managed to get her 'pleasingly plump' butt on top of my kitchen cupboards


I would think that Lucy is a tortie, or tortie & white. She is very pretty, and I find her very striking because she reminds me of my Dinah a bit, and she has that "Cindy Crawford" beauty mark on her lip.

Lar - you has email! As an addendum, the Seams Like Murder block of the month is still available on the website I sent you under the block of the month tab, along with several others.

Now I should prolly get to sleep. Gotsa be up early Caturday morning to go see the future Mr's daughter show her baby moo cows at the fair. I'll try to get pics - maybe do some "cheezburger-in-training" pics or something. Granted, they're dairy cows.... but it'll still work, right?

DesertZephyr: Lars is a mackeral tabby...and the spine stripe is part of that pattern.

Anybody have a cat with a "butterfly" pattern across it's shoulder girdle? That's characteristic of the classic tabby.

When the individual hairs are banded, that the ticked tabby pattern rearing it's head... she may be carrying a single copy of the gene as a recessive.


This is one of my old cats, Boo-Boo, who was a classic marble tabby, and, *bonus!*, who happened to be orange and a female. The sort of rounded pattern on the back of her neck that connects with the stripes on her head, is that what you mean by the "butterfly"?

i870.photobucket.com

Before I adopted her, I had heard somewhere that not only were orange female tabbies rare, but that they were also sterile. Boo-Boo proved to me that this was a myth, as the shelter folks informed me that she'd just finished weaning a litter of kittens (at the tender age of 8 months, no less! I took her in and had her spayed as fast as I could. Wish I'd asked the shelter staff what colours her kittens had been though.).

Fascinating information you both provided about the genetics, DesertZephyr & Oddmind. I've never seen it explained so clearly! Caturday: fun AND educational! Believe it or not, that made my day. I've spent all day thinking about all the cats I know and trying to picture what their parents must have looked like. :)

She was a stray(now she is loved), the vet lists her BD as 8-11, but sh was about 3-4 weeks old when found...

Good a day as any.

Oh, and she hates tuna. =)

Debby7813: things I do to my cats...: oddmind: Oh yes, and Rose, my somewhat rare female orange tabby

in a response to a very short discussion on the rarity (virtually UNHEARD OF) of male calicos, jaynleng had asked me the other day if female orange tabbies are rare. my Weeners on the question of a male calico was on the order of "well, since the calico is recessive and is carried on the X chromosome...yadda yadda yadda... and so a male calico would have to be XXY (or something) yadda yadda". is there a something that (a) i am in complete or partial error about re: the calico X chrom business and/or (b) is there something else going on here?

so, what is the deal with a potential rarity of the female orange tabby? is this such a thing? if so, why? how?

/confused
//NOT going to check out the 'net on Mendel, genes, calicos, gender, tabbies.
/// YET.

---

oh, and a cat! a tortie cat. "rare" for males as well?

//since tortie is a variation on calico, I would say "unpossible", rather than "rare". But, who knows? I'm no geneticist, that's for sure.

//oh, and a cat...and a tortie at that!

Now, it's time for sleep.


Good morning Caturday friends! I can't speak for everybody, but I want to see Cretinbob's kitty pictures NOW. Contest be damned! Oh well, I'll have to wait. I'm going to miss all of Caturday, and won't be back til Sunday night, so I has a sad.
FiamettaKittehPettah, Ollie O was really lucky he found you. It makes you wonder if they don't have some kind of sixth sense for finding a good person!
