Kitty Colours!!


Munchkin & Waffle

Apparently, Persian kittens are quite popular among my friends and relatives. They go goo-goo gaa-gaa when they saw Munchkin, Waffle and Sugar. And that includes moi. Well, they are so cute, indeed! And some of them actually wanted to adopt these darlings! I don't know. I don't feel like parting with any of these kiddies, but then again, can I upkeep them all?

Then there's a question of, who to give which? Then one friend even suggests that I should let Honeybun 'do-it' with Oreo! And he's taking a pair! And that's final. OMG!

With all these still at the back of my head, out of curiosity, I serched the web for this color chart. Its supposed to tell you what kitten color will be depending on the parents. Well, it was definitely accurate for most of my kittens, including the three new darlings. The link is here at Cats4U.com.
Msg from Cats4u.com : Hope you did not go cross eyed looking at the chart! (lol)

So, let's say Oreo is the sire, the the kitty colours would be just like Honey. Red, cream or red and cream. Interesting!

Well, I don't know yet. Whatever it is, Honey has to have a good rest and take great care of these 3 furballs before I decide on the next course of action.

I think you need university to understand this breeding stuff, lol ! The kitties are really so cute that I go gaga too ! I had all my cats neutred because I know me, I would have kept all the kittens and by now I would probably have over 200 cats!
I prefer to give a shot to a cat then a pill ! I don't want to commit suicide !

Cute indeed. Bet number 99 have no hope to get one? **sad**

Your babies are very cute but please don't have more kittens. The shelters are full of abandoned Persian and longhaired cats whose owners can't cope with long hair. Don't add to the problem. Ask those who want longhaired cats to adopt those that need a home.

Cuter as cute :)
I want to hug all ..... ^____^

Hi Gattina
I agree. There's so much to read and find out about cats...lol. Neutering is a good option for you if you want to keep 'em all. ;)

Hi Friend

Don't be sad. Pls read Katztales comment. She's got a valid point there. :)

Hi Ellen

Point taken. Too many are abandoned at the shelters. However my circle of friends and relatives are mostly cat lovers and very responsible owners, I will not worry about the cats with them. My concern right now is Honeybun. Very good point there.

Ydiana said...

Hi Anya

I will hug them all for you! One of them look exactly like the kitty you have in your post. I asked you to 'fedex' her to me fast, and I got it. Must thank you! Lol!

On the contrary, I did went to SPCA and Paws a few times to accompany a friend, but most of the cats that I saw looks sickly, that my friend actually hesitate to adopt. I didnt see any persian or other long hairs there.

Anyway, I was just pulling your leg about getting your cat. As much as I love cats, I am still incapable of caring for one right now. No worries!

Ydiana said...

Hi Friend

I haven't been to SPCA or Paws for a while now to verify that. Those days when I was not allowed to keep cats, I sometimes drive over there just to survey, and never pass by a pet shop without peeking in...lol!

Back to these shelters, I think what you meant is not 'sickly', because I'm sure they're healthy, but maybe 'depressed' is a better word. imagine staying there with lots of other depressed cats. They truly need a home to be 'happy' again.

Hello Ydiana, I too love Persians, as well Siamese. They're adorable. Especially when all white and fluffy coat.
Best regards, Lee.

Ydiana said...

Hi Lee

I know you love White Persians so much. When I get my White Doll Persian, I will add 'Lee' to her name! Eg, Snowflake Lee...lol!(kidding!!)

Pam said...

I think the kittens are adorable. I don't understand anything about breeding colors either. I'm glad your cats will have good homes if you should decide to give them away.

Ydiana said...

Hi Pam

They have this complex theory termed by chromosomes to determine the colours, and I won't bother to learn about it...lol!

Pam, they will have good home. I decided to keep them all!! :)
