So me and the breeder of one of my new girls have been talking, and we agree we are pretty sure ms Cleo is a Calico Smoke..she doesntlook like any of my other calicos for sure.
Yes its very possible that the cream/white father is a cream smoke - that is very hard to tell. If the father's mother is a tortie smoke then most likely he's registered as the wrong color (not sure what you can do about it).
The kitten then could be a smoke calico when full grown.
I've seen mislabelled rex colors on pedigrees - one in particular was labled as a blue/white van and a cream mother - the kitten was labeled as a TORTOISESHELL! The father had to be a light color black/white - not a blue/white. But it was about 8-10 generations behind.
