I have recently posted pictures of my cat Mickey who is 11 yrs. And that made me remember something odd about his litter. The litter consisted of 4 kitties, all male, all with black and white coloring. Mickey was the youngest in the litter and is a shorthair. The oldest was all black and a longhair. I didn't get to see the other two grown up because we gave them away, but I'm pretty sure they would have been longhair too. The kitties mother was also a shorthair. I once heard that one litter of kittens may have different fathers. Is that even possible? Or is it just that Mickey got the shorthair gene from his mother and not the others?
