Help for my Genetics lab

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hi guys! I'm hoping that the TCS crew can come to my rescue here. My lab is doing a lecture on cat genetics tomorrow afternoon, and I'd like to see if you guys can provide me some pictures. My poor students have a big test tomorrow morning, and then a quiz in my class. I know they're going to be so tired, and the cat genetics lecture is a looong one. So I'm hoping to put some amusing pictures up for them as examples of cats so that they can at least get a laugh out of them. There are pictures already in the lecture, but they're rather boring.

If you don't mind your cats being in the slides, could you please post a picture of them for me in this thread, along with their names? Thanks in advance, you guys are great, and I know my students will appreciate it! Its a long list, I think you'll see what I mean by a lengthy lecture!

I'm looking for pictures of:

Brown tabby (preferably a really cute kitten!)
Black cat
Havana brown
Brown mackeral tabby
Classic or blotched tabby
Abyssinian tabby
Orange cat, no white
Tortoiseshell cat
Calico cat
Orange and white cat
Tortie cat with tabby striping in orange
British or Russian blue
Silver tabby
Siamese or other pointed cat
Black cat with no white spots
Cat with some white spots, less than half of body
Cat with large white posts, more than half of body
White cat (can someone with a two-eye colored cat donate a picture please?)
A white cat and a black cat
A blue-eyed white cat (please let me know if he/she is deaf)
Any cat with a long tail
Cat with short fur
Cat with long fur
Polydactyl cat (picture of toes would be great too!)

Cable is actually more black than brown, IMO, but she is a mackeral

Java is a calico, & also has white on more that half of her body

Pixel is a shorthair (they all are) & has white on less than half of her body - she also has an unusual skunk stripe

Ernesto, semilonghaired brown tabby with white:

Ernesto and his sister Mimosa (look, matching white paws) a great example of recessives:

I didn't see any Aby's yet, Flynn is a Somali, 4 months old so his ticking needs to come in a bit more:

This pic is not particularly funny but shows his black paws and tailtip, tabby face and ticking:

Hunting the guppy:

Hunting a flash animation:

Two different tabby faces:

Mimosa making a face (she was nibbling a bit of duck):

Or you can take a peek in my photobucket album:
