Need Color help!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi All!!

I have a color question that I cannot seem to find the answer too.

I have a Blue persian male who is CPC. His mother was a himi & his father was a white persian.

I am going to be mating him to my seal/chocolate point himalayan. I am unsure what she is really, her papers say she is chocolate point, but when researching, her points look allot darker than average chocolate points & more like the seal point.

Does anyone have an idea of the colors the kittens will be?? I can find color charts everywhere. None that pertain to crossing persians & Himalayans. HELP! =) Thanks!

You should get both solids and pointed with him being a CPC - probably blue and seal points and probably blue or black (if the female is seal and not chocolate) in solids.

Thank you very much!!

Now is there a source for me to go look into if my girl is really a chocolate point or a seal? like pictures?

I'd ask the breeder - or post a picture here.

I'm one of those Persian breeders who doesn't fully belive in mating Pointed Persians to other colours. We've got some beautiful Pointed's here in NZ.

Is therea specific reason or just preferance?

I guess it's just because I'm not a fan of CPC's.

W rarely see them over here - on the bench anyway. My Nana exported a Red Tabby CPC once - he was gorgeous but had a different look.

I am a big fan of color points! I think they are absolutely beautiful!

I also on the other hand don't like the extreme faces on persians, that is why I love himalayans & CPC. In my experience, their faces are not as "extreme" as some call it.

So I guess that is kind of what you are talking about--(the face was different)

I love the book "Robinson's Genetics for Cat Breeders & Veterinarians" though it is a bit of a rough go. Excellent reference on color/pattern genetics as well as disease/disorders.

A quick way out is the program listed below. The more you know of the genotype, the more complete the phenotype information will be. You can download a the free version from the company website.

Phenotype Predictor

I used both of these in selecting our Siberian kittens, as I wanted a wide range of colors in the litters.

best, tom
