Or maybe CFA feels its too close to birmans with the same concept (pointed/bicolor) even tho the cats are totally different in type.
The gene that makes a white cat is different then the gene in Bi-colored/mitted cats (the white Spotting
gene, it is in bi-colors and mitteds too)
I know nothing about snowshoes, but the ragdoll breeder I got my ragdoll from had a snow shoe, it wasn't a bi-color pattern. it was the mitted pattern. He also had white under his nose (name was got milk, he looked like he had a milk mustache)I know they use siamese, but what else? I know GK said a bi-color, but a bi-colored what? bi-colors aren't a particular breed.
I don't think they look alot like birmans, they only have the mitted pattern (but have a colored not white chin) birmans are not supposed to be bi-colors are they? I don't think they look a lot like birmans(except the mitted pattern)
Like tiff said, they do look (color wise only) like a short haired ragdoll, they atleast have the same patterns except they are short haired. bi-color/mitted/colorpoints.
