Tabby Color?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi. I was wondering if anyone could identify the color of my kitten. Her markings are not the ususal black on grey -- more of a grey on grey on cream. Would she be considered a dilute? ___________ tabby and white.

She's a Blue tabby & white, though being a kitten, she may eventually loose her stripes and just be a blue bicolor.

That's some great eyeliner she's got there though.

The "cream" color is called "patina" on a blue - its not a true cream but more of a beige underlaying color.

She is very pretty. I had a blue mctabby/white cat that had that "cream" color too and thought he was a bluecream male. Found out when I showed him about the true color.

BLUE TABBY (classic, mackerel): ground color, including lips and chin, pale bluish ivory. Markings a very deep blue affording a good contrast with ground color. Warm fawn overtones or patina over the whole. Nose leather: old rose. Paw pads: rose. Eye color: brilliant gold.

I don't know what you'd call it... but I just wanted to add that... that is the most ADORABLE KITTEN I've ever SEEN!

Your kitten is darling! I also have a blue mack tabby w/ white who has cream. We call it warm undertones. If you scroll down to Ilona, you can see her. Notice the creamy look on her front legs and face.

Its not true cream on the blue tabbies. Its the undercoat of beige/patina

Thanks for the nice comments and information. She also has a bobtail (her 2 siblings did as well). I've seen a bit about Japanese bobtails and American bobtails.. and was wondering about the difference between them.
