    Default Crazy cat color genetics

    First, I am a putz b/c I don't have pictures of this cat. Yet.

    Stray cat walked in the back of the feed store warehouse this afternoon. She's super friendly and young, talks like crazy.

    From a distance she's a mid-length coated Siamese. When you get closer you realize that her dark points are tortoiseshell calico!

    She's a very pretty sweet cat-something I've never seen before with the two color patterns. I'm sure she's inbred to the hilt.

    Tortie-point totally describes her-but her tortie-ness is much more pronounced than at your link. It's split between the eyes between black and tortie and her legs show the tortie too but all her middle (and her personality) are all meezer.

    I didn't realize tortie-point was a term-obviously I'm lax on my cat colors!

    This is the closest picture I've found only her nose isn't quite so orange, more diluted: http://www.willowtreerags.com/ragdollbreed.php and the last cat on the page, at the bottom.

    She's very striking-and friendly and talkative.
