what will Kitten look like?

Not sure which section to post this.
I'm curious, at what age will you see if a cat will have long hair or short hair?
example the Mom was a russian blue cat and the Dad was a black Persian cat.
Some kittens came out all gray, and some came out all white.
how will you know if that kitten will look like dad or look like mom?
at what age will you know if its gonna get the ling hair of the persian, or short hair trait from the Russian blue?

Our current kitten is the first long hair I've had and I could tell when I got her at 2 weeks for bottlefeeding.

Hard to say now, I would wait a few weeks. She (or he) may grow out of those tabby stripes but I doubt it will have really long hair. You will know much more when it is a month or 6 weeks old.

When I was a child we had a cat that was supposed to be full Persian, only there was a little accident somewhere along the line and he was a shorthair, with the thick Persian undercoat so his hair stood up a bit and he looked very fluffy, but not longhaired. Wonderful cat. Still loved and missed after more than half a century. With a mixed breed it's really fun to see how they turn out.

thanks I like the blue color of a russian blue, but i'd prefer short haired cat so i can comb them once a week . I used to have a Persian and its hard to maintain their long fur.

Well it sounds like to me that there was an "accidental" breeding in there somewhere. Not possible to have a white cat when parents are black and blue. One of the parents would have to be white.....so momacat snuck out somewhere and found another boy. Yes, it is possible for a litter to be sired by different males.

As to length of coat...in the photos the kitten looks about 4-5 weeks old. He does look fluffy, but may have a medium longhair coat, but it is hard to tell at this age, and you should have a better idea when he's a few months old.
