What color do I register my new sphynx as in TICA and CFA the breeder does not know

The breeder said TICA is picky with colors and does not know what I should register as.
All her pedigrees are TICA.
What do you think she is?
This is what the breeder said about her color.
I know that TICA is weird about their colors… But CFA should do Seal / White Mink
I know…. I have a van calico and TICA would not reg. her that way but CFA did.
Dark Seal color on her ears. And a light seal color large patch on her back.... But it is light in color.

I thought I answered this one - she should be Seal Mink & White as her color.

The breeder is saying TICA is different.
I will put that for CFA.

Put it down for TICA too - let them tell you if its wrong. If the breeder is registered in TICA, I would think they would know the color choices that TICA requires.

Heck I can't figure out half the time what color Sphynx are supposed to be when there is no fur

The breeder is TICA first then CFA and she dont even know lol
All Peds are TICA except for the Belgium Pedigree.
Some people think Cleo is blue and white when she is black and white.
I never had a problem with Cleo because her colors are correct.
I do not want to be embarrassed in the ring with the new sphynx
I have seen it happen in CFA before.

IMO the breeder SHOULD know the color of the cats - if they don't....well I'll be polite

Well she says she knows the colors but TICA does not agree with her.
CFA does.
What color should I use from this?
Pointed?

Ok according to the CFA colors if she is mink, then she has to be a Natural Mink (which would be the color of Seal in the pointed). So Natural Mink and White. But I'm concerned that her eye color is too blue - minks have aqua eye color and I don't know how long that would take to show.

If she is pointed and not a mink, then she would be Seal Point.

If you really want, you can show her as a kitten without registration and ask the TICA judges and the CFA judges at to what in the heck is her color supposed to be. You really don't have to have a registration number until they are 8 months old and go in championship/alter classes.

The breeder did say her eyes might change to Aqua.
She was born June 30th if that helps.
