Introducing My Newest........Cotton (cuteness warning included)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
This is Cotton, my newest addition. A stray momma had 7 kittens in my flower bed the end of May. He was solid white when he was born and his coloring has changed tremendously. There was 3 solid black and 3 striped tabbies, some long hair, some short. He is long haired and has the prettiest blue eyes you ever seen. Can someone please tell me what the proper coloring he is?


Here he and Prince is tickling a little ivory while mom is on the computer!!

They play and sleep on the keyboards anytime someone is on the computer!!

Awwwww, Cotton is so lovely! What a beautiful little boy!

It looks to me like Cotton is a pointed kitty. He has the pointed genetics, like a Siamese cat. My little boy Bamf is a seal point Siamese and Cotton's coloring looks to be almost identical to Bamf's. Cotton's dark or pointed spots are almost exactly the same shade of brown-black that Bamf's are. So I would say that Cotton is a seal point kitty! Officially, he would probably be seal point domestic long (or medium) hair. Here are some pictures of Bamf, to illustrate:


Bamf about a month and a half ago:


See how much darker Bamf keeps getting? This was last week and he has darkened significantly when compared to the previous photo.

I love pointed kitties. You should show us more pictures of Cotton!

I would agree - seal point Siamese mix. Pointed kitties are usually born white.. and their color forms as they develop.... and often gets darker as they age. (Sometimes you can see hints of the color points to come, tho', I've noticed.)

I don't know the genetics of it; if you want those answers, someone else will have to help.

He's gorgeous!

I would guess seal or chocolate pointed, probably seal but its hard to tell in the pictures. Congrats on the new addition

Cotton's paw pads appear to be black skinned and not brown, so I'd say he's a seal point.
I would never call him a siamese mix though as the pointed gene can show up anywhere in the general population, it is not unique to the pointed breeds.

He looks so soft, like my ex-boyfriend's kitty, Bug
Here's a baby pic of Bug and an adult pic to show the darkening.
She is a Seal Point domestic longhair.

That's what I was looking for, Seal Point for sure. I sure hope he gets as dark as your ex's Bug, he is gorgeous. Cotton is darkening as time goes by!! Thanks to all that responded!!
