The flash washes the color out a little, but I'd say buff - and a very pretty kitty at that.

I'd vote for light orange. he's a good looking puddums!!!
(In cat breeding vernacular, I think he would still be termed "red", but I will let someone with more knowledge speak to that.)

Ok - those pictures show more orange. And I have to ask... what's with the chickens? That's not exactly what I would think of to have as a bed buddy.

lol my friend would not get out of bed so i put my rooster on her head to wake her up and he kept crowing until she got up lol


so i guess he really is an orange tabby>? He was buff tabby as a baby which is what i was told

What if he had pooped on her head too?


I'll let someone else weigh in on his color, though it does look like his color darked a little.

I'd almost have to see him in person - but based on the pictures, I would call him a dark CREAM (buff color is "cream") classic tabby. There's a fine line between what breeders call "pale Red" and "hot Cream". You'd have to know the parents and the genetics.

If your cat's parents are dilute color cats, then he would be cream. If one was dilute and the other a non-dilute (meaning a black or red cat), then its an iffy thing as to cream or red.

Here's a picture of a cream tabby - and your cat does seem to be about the same shade

I would defer to GoldenKitty on this subject. I'm sure she can tell you whether or not cats colors do darken as they age. I know that's true with pointed cats. My neighbor's orange boy's color has deepened and darkened since he was a kitten.

If he crapped on her head looks like she would be in trouble then as they crap like every five mins lol I never even thought of it! lol

I found him as a kitten so I have no idea who his parents are or where he came from, he is the tallest cat I have ever had though! Hes as tall as a fox!

He's a very handsome cat! No idea what colour he is though, sorry!

I agree... he looks cream to me too. My cat Peaches, is the same color only she isn't a tabby.
