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.
