OUR CATS COATS COLOURS

We specialise in Breeding British Shorthair & British Longhair cats, we breed the delightful shimmer of Shaded, Chinchilla Tipping & Ticked kittens in a beautiful range of specialised colours.

Within our Silver, Golden and Colour Point lines there are beautiful specialised colours, our colours are Chocolate, Lilac, Black, Blue & cinnamon.

Blue is the dilution colour of Black.
Lilac & cinnamon is the dilution colours of Chocolate.

With different 'types' of markings: Ticked (Ta), Spotted (T) coat markings, which is the Tabby banding of colours on a cat’s fur. 

In the Silver & Golden Cats, the 'type' is also characterized by colour at the tips of the hair. There are three types which include chinchilla, shaded and smoke, each distinguished by the extent of the shading on individual hairs.

In Chinchillas, only the very tip of the outer coat is coloured, it gives a delightful shimmer to the coat. With the shaded pattern, a quarter of the guard hair farthest from the cat’s body exhibits the colour. In the smoke pattern, half of the guard hair farthest from the cat’s body displays the colour.

We are affiliated through FIFe, they use the Easy Mind System (EMS) system which is used to identify cats by codes. 
The code for a specific colour, pattern or other trait is always the same, no matter the breed. The EMS system is not a genetically based system. Within FIFe Chinchilla is described as Shaded.
