Hello, I am new here!

My name is Carolina_Man and this is my first time here. I have a question about genetics. I have a female cat who is all golden-yellow and her mother was white with golden-yellow spot on her. I don't know what kind of cat she is. I am thinking about breeding the all yellow cat with a grey- black cat. What could happen if I breed them.

i don't recommend breeding as this would be called backyard breeding.

Which breed of cat do you have? If we are talking about a domesticated tabby..then Aurora is correct. There are literally thousands of domesticated tabbies (both adult and kittens) looking for homes. If you do not have a purebred cat that you acquired from a breeder (that has breeding rights), then I highly recommend having your female spayed.

From the description, it sounds like you have a cream or buff colored cat, which is basically a dilute orange (ginger) cat. If you mix her with a grey-black cat, you'll probably wind up with anything from orange, cream, grey, black, calico... It depends on the genes, which you wouldn't know if you don't know the cat's parents.

I wouldn't recommend breeding for selling. There's tons of kittens in the shelters that could use a home.

Welcome to TCS! We are glad you have found us!

As the others have already mentioned, TCS does not support nor do we encourage breeding non-pedigreed, domestic cats. If you are interested in genetics, I might suggest this site as it relates to feline color genetics and may prove interesting to you without actually having to breed your cats.

Best of luck.

How many cats live in your grandmothers yard?

Regardless of breeding or not breeding domestic cat, I think you question is about which colors the kittens (if any) can have.

A red, or cream (diluted) female and a black/brown male give red males and tortie (calico) females, but never red females. To get a cream male the father would have to carry the gene for dilute. If he does, you could also have blue tortie baby girls.

So your cat lives outdoors? It truly is best to have her spayed as there are many health benefits to her once she is spayed. I would also get the male neutered. If you need a list of low cost or free spay clinics, I can provide those for you.

Hello there!
firstly please could you send me a photo of your cat to my hotmail faye_jinx@hotmail.com , what ever you do don't breed with another breed of cat you will end up with 'moggies' a common term for backyard breeding. If you want to breed her it is a good idea to find out what she is and breed with the same. There are thousands of kittens that are not wanted every year due to accidents and cross breeds you could end up with all sorts of colours yes i agree and some of them very pretty but can you find a litter of 15 a good home????? probably not. I'm not being rude i'm a trained vet and i may be able to help with more info of your furry friend. i'd be very upset to find out that you have bred them without some advise.

I have 2 concerns...1. cat is currently living outdoors....2. cat sounds like a moggie herself. My advice is still to spay...the sooner the better. That way you avoid accidental breeding with a stray.

I do completely agree with you!!!
My only concern is that there are so many different breeds out there and this lady obviously wants to breed her cat.
In this case you wont stop her so I am trying to find another way of helping you don't actually know what breed the cat is and niether does she,for that matter even I don't at the moment. No matter how much you say get it spayed it may not happen. So I have offered my professional help to see whether she will change her mind or whether she has a GOOD breed cat and she would breed it with another GOOD breed cat.
I hope this stops your worries

My mood at present is concerned
