dilute tortie/blue cream (blue and cream mixed - dilute of the tortie colors)
chocolate tortie - (chocolate and red)
lilac-cream - (lilac and cream mixed)
Then you can throw in the lynx points (tabby) and have all those above colors with tabby markings
Does that help?
I was getting confussed, I know what I was thinking, but was trying to think of some thing else, LOL! I am trying to learn genetics for colors/patterns for raggies, and I have ben getting so much info lately I am over whelming myself with it
I had seen a cat with light blue and patches almost of lighter colors, I thought they said blue cream, so I thought it was the blue with cream colors. mabey a torti? With the OPs cat I was seeing the flame, but on his face under the nose I saw "white (cream" ) so I thought that would make it like a flame cream point. That is where I am comming from
I know he is a flame but I thought he had some cream in there too, if you look at his face, around the eyes and the mustche are light I thought, so that is why I was asking about being a flame cream.
Tif, another poster said it is either cream or red you can't have both this is where I was getting confussed. But I thought you would say flame cream or blue cream, and merrytreecats was saying it is a cream or a flame.
I am looking at adopting a cat he is (I think it said) cream tabny, so while I know the difference between some thing being red or being cream, I was wondering if the lighter spots I thought I was seeing were cream, just like with a lynx. It is a bloe color but the pattern is lynx blue lynx. But some one said it can't be both?
GK45. I see a lot of people calling cats flame or reds. I recently seen a siamese called a flame, I thought they were called red? I thought pretty much the short haired are called reds and the LH are called flames. Am I wrong, or does it go by just certain breeds or breeders some say one some say the other. I thought the advertiser just didn't know what they were doing well, but then I see some one say they had a red himi, or some thing. Does it really matter? or is it catorigized another way? himi's and ragdolls are called flame, while siamese, rex, abysinians, ect are called reds. Is that how they are classified? I like learning these thing! I really am learning too, I just occationally get mixed up, but I really am learning
I find it all so fascinating!
