What Colour Am I?

 

There are 6 colours accepted within the breed standard, these are:-

 

Blue: This colour can vary from slate blue to smokey blue/grey with the nose and paw pads being slate blue. The body colour is blue white to ivory in colour.

 

Seal: is a dark, rich brown in colour and can look almost black. The body colour should be a fawn to cream with shading over the back although sometimes it is possible for them to be a little darker. The nose and paw pad will be a dark brown colour.

 

Chocolate: These are very similar to the Seal (although rarer), however, the brown will be warmer in tone and will vary from a lighter milky chocolate to deep warm brown.

 

Lilac: will have points that are a lilac to pink-beige. Body colour will always be milky white and the nose and paw pads are mauve to lavender in shading.

 

Red: This varies from apricot to marmalade on the points with the body colour being creamy in hue. Some of the darker colouring can carry on to the body.  The nose and pawpads are a softer pinky red hue.

 

Cream: This is a softer more dilute form of the red or flame colouring.

 

There are also 3 colour patternings (just to confuse the issue lol).

 

Lynx/Tabby: As the name suggests stripes appear on the face, tail, legs and at times on the body.

 

Tortie: Only appearing in females this occurs when a red or cream is mated with another colour.  The colour combinations are red/seal and blue/cream, choc/red and lilac/cream (the last two are quite rare).  The colours appear in patches on the body to varying degrees.

 

Tortie Tabby: Is a combination of Tabby and Tortie markings on the one cat.
