Her color and pattern are unique for sure. Body is cream clasic tabby, but she does have the darker "lynx" points on head, ears, and tail. Can't say I've ever seen her coloration before...very unusual. She's absolutely gorgeous. You should put her in a HHP (Household Pet) class at a local cat would have fun with the judges about her color. If she has an outgoing personality, likes to be handled, she should do very well. She looks in very good condition. These are all things that the judges look for in HHP, but her coloring would make her stand out.

Couldn't her body darken with age? She is very beautiful.

Along with the dogs Tara and Coco.

My goodness! She is a lovely, unique little girl.
Her color patterns are a little confusing to me,
though. The basic cream-colored swirlies on
her sides are the classic tabby markings, which
I think are absolutely beautiful. She has the
typical tabby "M" markings on her forehead, too
as well as the barring on her forelegs. But then
she throws in that dark brown seal-point tail and
the dainty little white feet. She must have some
really interesting genetics going on there.

I think I'd call her a cream classic tabby for the
most part and just gloss over the really dark tail,
but that's just my opinion. What I am certain of
is that she is just gorgeous!

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile.

No idea what breeds she could have in her, but she is absolutely gorgeous. I've never seen a cat with colouring quite like hers. What a beautiful little kitty!

What a lovely girl! She is very uniquely coloured. I'm currently catsitting for a neighbour who has a cat with a similar look to him (lynx point with ghost mackerel tabby stripes on his back and sides.) I'll check if he's got any white on his paws when I go over tonight. In Simon's case, I'm sure he's a cross between a DSH and either a Siamese or one of the breeds that was developed from them, like an Oriental. The lynx points are a dead give away, as are his slightly crossed blue eyes (which, are apparently due to the fact that the gene for pointed coat colouration is a variation of the allele responsible for albinism.)

I checked Simon when I went over to feed my neighbour's cats this evening, and yes, Simon does have white socks on his front feet and white boots on the back.
