I am actually the one not trying to start any flames, as when I mention the minks and solids, there are varying degrees of opinions. Yes, there was a thread on here a few months back, that became heated. That is the only reason I am reluctant to speak about Minks or Solids on a public forum. I respect those breeders who choose to stay Traditional, and definitely don't want to step on any toes.
I have heard that some of the pedigrees will be changing, and have heard that this will affect my Minks pedigree to reflect Ragamuffins in the back ground. If this is correct, then from what I understand Lucy's Grandfather is a CON, Lucy's Mother is an SBT, making Lucy now a 2nd generation SBT. I am not positive on that though, as I have called TICA's offices and got many different answers.
None the less, the opinions and facts vary from person to person, from breed to breed.
SO, Dante' is a high mitted, just like my Berlioz!! When he is put with mitteds, you will have bicolors and mitteds, and of course when put with any bicolor will produce one of the 4 bicolor patterns. Our studs, can never produce colorpoint Ragdolls.
I look forward to seeing the pictures.
Well, i'm glad we got that sorted out,
I just didn't want you to think I was trying to offend you, or any one for that matter (ragdoll, solid, mink, or traditional, or ragamuffin breeders) I have no idea of minks or solids, and for now intend to stay with the tradtional, and mostly because i'm just learning about them, and would be too confussed to get into the others. I Just remember a post (and now that I had been thinking about it, it could have even been a different forum I had been on, (untill I found this one
) and I believe they had said they were able to trace then back, but I don't know what that means for people's registations with those cats now, so good luck if you have stuff get changed on you. If he is put with a mitted, will they produce mitted and bis, but will they be true bis? (I don't have my pattern chart right in front of me)I really don't want to do what was done to me, to some one else, meaning sell them a bi-color when he's not a true bi, I was told Dante' was a true bi, so i'm a little dissapointed for being mislead, but not dissapointed with him, or what he willproduce in the future, and would have gotten him probley if I had known he was a high mitted, just didn't like thinking he was some thing else. Also I was thinking one has a light nose still and light feet, and had thought for a while he looked like he could be a bi-color, i'm sure I am wrong, but what would he be then, if I get mitted and bis? I guess i'm going to have to go get my little chart out, but would he still be a high mitted, or is that some thing else to produce that?
Well pics soon, mabey I will take some nice Easter pics in the morning, and share the names I have decided on, (after loved ones)
(I just checked my chart and it would be a mid high white if I did have the bi-color kitten, but I bet I have all mitted meaning that he is like your Berlioz, a high mitted, I know you know, i'm just telling myself, lol!)
