What color is Sprout?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can someone here tell me what his color/markings would be called? He was described by his former owners as a "Seal Point Blue Sphynx" . I would call him a black tuxedo cat, minus hair! What do you think? Sorry about the quality of the photos.

This one is under different lighting. He really was sleeping upside-down like that under his blankie!

Seems to me like it's a black and white Sphynx. Maybe it's the pictures but the eyes don't look blue to me (a colorpoint always has blue eyes), they look yelow/orange.

There actuarally is no color called seal point blue. A cat is either seal point (black/brown point) or blue point. Obviously the previous owner also forgot about the white spotted part because there's no doubt about that cat being white spotted.

Here's a blue point with white Sphynx:

This is a seal point with white:

This one is black and white:

This one is blue and white:

Thank you, that was very helpful! I knew it didn't make any sense to call him a seal point blue, but I didn't know that colorpoints always have blue eyes. Very interesting!

From the example photos you posted, I'd say he's black and white too. Thanks again!

Any "pointed" cat would have blue eyes. I was told you basically tell the color of sphynx by the little bit of fur that is on the face/nose. So in your case, the cat would be a black and white.

Only reason they added "blue" was the body looks blue - but if he had hair all over, he'd be a black and white
