And which one will get the PotOGold name? I would pick either the mostly white with red or the red one with the lease amount of white
And the other looks like a brown tabby - if its develops some red patching, it will be a brown patched tabby female. Red sometimes doesn't show right away and may develop in the next few weeks. Keep checking.
From the litter, looks like dad was either a brown or a red tabby
You're right! I just posted in Pennie's thread that I couldnt wait to sex the kittens. If any of the reds are girls then I know the tom was red as well, or if the tabby is a girl, I know the tom was NOT a red. Either way, it doesnt really matter except that I am a huge genetics freak. Most people's eyes glaze over when I start to talk about it, so it's fun to find someone who actually knows about what you're talking about or that cares - lol! As of right now, I think Shenanigans is a brown macheral tabby, dont see any signs of red, but I am definitely keeping my eye out.
Right now only 2 of the kittens have names - #1, the red with the most white, is being called Shamrock, and the tabby is Shenanigans. We've been calling the kittens as a whole "The Pot O' Gold" as we feel like they're all a treasure!
Twix is still being very sweet, she will make it very hard to send back to the shelter. I guess I have 8 weeks to work on hubby. As long as I pace myself... he might not notice one extra cat hanging around
