PATTERNS

Tabbies

Swirls of pattern on the body Stripes going vertically from the spine line to the belly

Solids                                                                            Tortoiseshell

The coat is one colour from the hair tip to the base The Tortoiseshell is a mixture of red and black, 

Smoke                                                                               Shaded

Tortie Smoke & White. The tortie areas actually have a silvery white undercoat although it is not visible until the coat is parted. Smokes look like solids until the fur is parted to reveal the pale undercoat. The shaded cat has a lot of pale uncercoat visible, with a mantle of colour over the top, making it appear like it has just had coloured flour sprinkled on the coat.

Has one colour, e.g. brown tabby or red, with white, usually to the limbs, tummy, chest and head. Has two colours, e.g. black & red, with white, usually to limbs, tummy, chest and head.
