Need help identifying markings on kittens

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm a newbie...so my apologies if this is posted in the wrong section!

Anywho...I was hoping to get some help identifying what you would call the color/markings of a couple of kittens. I'm thinking maybe flame point or orange tabby... but I know nothing about cat colors/markings and would like some opinions. These two are just a day over two weeks, and this is what they look like so far....

Kitten One:

His/her face has been orange since birth, and is getting darker and getting kind of a striped pattern.


His/her tail has also been striped since birth


Here's a full body shot...lots of orange stripes on the legs and face...body is more of a cream color with an orange-ish tint


Kitten Two:

This one was completely white at birth, and is getting some orange coloring. His/her face is much lighter. Has some orange around the nose and eyes, and has orange ears.


The tail is cream...no stripes of color but a slight orange tint.


Body shot, some orange stripes on the legs, and some orange on the face and ears. Mostly cream colored. It's a lighter cream than the first kitten, without the orange tint.

Those look like Orange tabbies to me!

Kitten 1- Red
Kitten 2 - Cream, maybe cameo

We'll have to wait for a while to confirm if there are markings or not. They could be solids, especially kitten 2. But at the moment, both appear mackeral. We should know in a couple of months.

I guess I'll have to update once they're older then. Does anyone know of a good website that lists different varieties of cats with pictures?

They're both red tabbies of some sort, what knd of pattern they have will show later on. Number two is a red silver tabby.

It also looks like they have fever coats. That's why they have the very pale color on their bodies. Fever coat isn't dangerous and will disappear with age.

Red Silver = Cameo, CFA speak

I took care of a couple kittens with fever coat several years ago. Here is a link that can explain it better than I can... http://www.showcatsonline.com/fever_coat.htm

Edit: Adorable kittens, btw.
