Colour question. Is Freyja a dilute point?

So when I first got Freyja's colours explained over the phone by my breeder I just thought she had random splodges of blue and apricot all over her body.

Now that she is actually here however I can see the colours are isolated to point locations (Ears, tails, face, feet).

When I took a picture of her eyes in the dark the other night they flashed red instead of the usual green which was another sign of the point and she has the point blue eyes.

I don't really have much experience with dilute genes is all so was just curious what others thought. Will her colours come through any stronger as she ages? She is 14 weeks now.

Here is a link to album with some pictures, I didn't include her feet because they only have a small amount of apricot on each and was difficult to photograph.

Yes, "dilute tortie point" is probably how I would describe her colouration, anyway.

All blue eyed cats and dogs glow red. It's because of the blue eyes not that they're pointed. Just fyi

Ooh I did not know that deafdogsandcat.

Maybe a dilute tricolour point? They have so many different names for things nowadays haha. Though she does have the white, orange and blue on her face, paws, ears and tail only.

So either point or coincidence

The photos aren't too clear....but if they're blue and "apricot", her color would be called dilute tortoiseshell point or blue-cream point.

They are blue and apricot but also a bit of white on her face that is more white than the rest of her body if that makes sense.

Her paws actually do have a bit of colour on them but its mostly on the back of the paws but still the apricot and blue.

But they are very dull blues and dull apricot. I am hoping they will darken as she ages but either way she is gorgeous in my eyes

The colors likely will likely darken with age....if she has the white....then her color description is blue-cream point and white or dilute tortoiseshell and white.

If you look at the photo of my Zuba his breeder registered his color as seal-silver lynx point and white. Lynx point designates tabby pattern on his legs and face. His sire was black smoke and white (carried silver gene), and his dam was white (she carried the pointed pattern as her dam was a seal point Devon). Zuba's body color is actually pewter color with a buff shading on his upper front legs, and roots of his hair is white like a smoke color pattern. Devons come in some very different colors.

Yes they do hehe.

Your Zuba is gorgeous though!

It's hard sometimes describing colours with people. When I went and got Loki fixed they listed his colour on the certificate of neuter as "chocolate" not even chocolate point...

So when it came to sending the proof away to my breeder she almost didn't believe me because he is NOT a chocolate haha

I've found that a lot of vets don't have a good knowledge of cat color descriptions. Just to give you an idea how varied Devon colors can be, here is a description of the various colors in CFA=Cat Fanciers' Assoc. Devon Breed Standard. Other registries may have different color descriptions. Zuba is under ODRC=Other Devon Rex Color
