Tortie Tuesday - Baby Praline

This was one of the pictures my mom had to send to CFA (Cat Fancier's Association) when I was getting registered as a baby. The breeder told my mom that I was a Seal Point Persian, but CFA said I couldn't be pointed because I didn't have the appropriate genetics in my family history, my eyes were not blue and a couple of my toe pads were pink instead of dark. My Himmie mom and Persian dad were both registered, so I had the papers, but they couldn't decide my coloring. CFA asked mom to send in a photo and based on the photo below, my coloring is officially "Tortoiseshell". That makes me a Tortie!

As I grew into an adult ladycat, the dark markings on my body disappeared and my coat is a mixture of cream and red (from both of my parents) and my tail, toes, and face have the seal pointed markings of my Himmie mom.


Mom says even though I have the sweet disposition of the Himmie and Persian that I do have the cattitude of a Tortie at times. I don't know what she could be talking about.

I bet you are very sweet Praline! You have such lovely eyes! You were much darker as a kit too, which to us is surprising. Most Siamese are lighter when they are younger...

Love your cute kitten photo. Whatever the category you are a lovely distinctive ladycat.

Your baby photos make me squeee every time!

I think floofies must change colour as they grow up, 'cos when Cosmo got little she was solid grey and now she's got bits that looks like someone spilled bleach on her.

Praline,
Whatever you are, you are loved. I learned when I was adopted from the humane society, that it doesn't matter where you come from. All that matters is what you are. You are a loved ladycat.
