In Sweden we've learned that judging color in Rexes by eye color is a very unreliable way to determine the correct colors. We have blue eyed cats who have proven to be both mink and sepia by DNA-tests.
Judging kitten color by the eye color is probably even more unrealiable since it can take a long time for the eyes to get their final and mature eye color.
This is a natural mink with white:
and this is the same cat as an adult:
He absolutely doesn't have the aqua colored eyes a natural mink "should" have. The unreliance in determining color by the eye colors are simply that we (at least in Sweden) don't breed by color, we don't work to refine eye colors or coat colors. Not yet.
We've had registred points being changed to minks as well... "pointed" cats that judges have determined being points but DNA-tests have shown they aren't.
