Luna the Himalayan/Ragdoll cross


image by lunathehimmydoll, on Flickr

Meet Luna, born October 6, 2012. I adopted her when she was nine weeks old. She is growing a lot! Does she look more Himalayan or Ragdoll? Her father is a flame-point Himalayan and the mother is a seal-point Ragdoll. Luna appears to be a flame-point. Only one of her siblings was seal-point.

Luna is so fluffy and adorable! She definitely looks more Raggie than Himmy. Actually I cannot see any Himmy in her if you didn't mention it

But I'm confused... How can a flame point sire and seal point dam give birth to a flame point girl? It doesn't make sense... Such pairing only gives tortie point girls and seal point boys. Have you actually see the mom? I suspect the mom is a tortie point, not a seal point.

Oops, I just checked and the mother is actually blue-point. I am not very well versed in the different colour points. Not sure if that makes any sense. I did see the mother.

Still doesn't add up... Blue and seal points have the same base color gene (blue is just diluted seal). The mom has to be a blue-cream tortie point to get a flame girl

The mother looked to me to have siamese-like colouring, but I guess it is possible that she was slightly tortie. I am not sure how feline genetics work exactly. Four of the five kittens were flame-point.
