I work at an animal shelter, and I have been fostering for them for the past year. Mostly bottle fed kittens and a few puppies here and there. This year we have started taking home not only bottle fed babies, but nursing mothers and their litter. I brought home April, who is a tortishell. She has 3 kittens in her litter, Joker, Harley, and Quinn. One of which is solid black with a small white patch on her chest. The other 2 are POINTED.....That's right, like a siamese. The male is a lighter beige with a pink nose and the female is a darker beige with the black nose. So my question is.....How in the world does that happen? Does the dad have to be part siamese or something? This is one of the most unique things I have ever seen. Everyone at my workplace is baffled by this.
