I was talking to the rescue I foster for earlier, we have had a mum and kitts brought in. Mum is white with black splodges, and the kitts are: 2 blue/apricot, both longhaired, a tabby and a tortie and white (both shorthaired) - all female. How is this possible? I am guessing that mum (or dad) was carrying both the dilute and longhaired genes, but didn't think a white and black could have a tortie and white - or does this mean that dad is red? In which case, how would you get a tabby??
