a brown kitten?

Used to have a cat who gave birth to kitten that was a rich, glossy brown; Never seen another like it; why is this such a rare color? He was a beauty! just been niggling on my mind. thanks.

The rare - Havana Brown cat breed originated as the result of breeding a black domestic cat carrying the brown recessive gene and a seal or chocolate point Siamese cat. As the breed was undergoing further development, an occasional Russian Blue cat was also used. Please read the articles on the origin for more information about the breed. Did you know that the color "Brown" is one of the rarest colors and most difficult to achieve...
Come to think of it, other than the sealpoint markings on my Siamese, I have never seen a brown cat! I'm glad you asked. It's possible a black cat and Sealpoint Siamese are in your cat's heritage. Too bad you didn't keep her, now that we consider how rare they are!

Believe it or not, this cat was closest to the color of a chestnut horse! that's the only thing that comes close. Her ma was just a feral stray that we took in.

Could it be that the kitten was chocolate?

This is how chocolate looks like in British Shorthairs:



This is how it looks lika in the Burmese:



Then there's the classic agout in the Abyssinnians and the Somalis, search the web for these breeds and see if ou find the color. The colors in Abys and Somalis are very special and are seldom found in other cats than Abys and Somalis.

I've seen a brown mixed breed just once before. It looked like that havana brown Jeanie posted a picture of. Not a spot of white on it. It was the runt of its litter. I wonder if it survived.

Then maybe it was cinnamon/sorrel (in Abys it's called sorrel and in other breeds, cinnamon) which is the diluted form of chocolate.

This is a sorrel Aby:



and on this link you'll se a cinnamin Oriental Shorthair: http://www.pet.gen.tr/2002/cats_pics/cats_84.jpg
