They're lovely :luv I'm impressed you can see what colors they are. I'm lousy when it comes to determining color on colorpoints. Sure I can determine colors on an adult, but not on tiny babies.

It's all a matter of ruling things out (and knowing what colors to expect). :wink:
Color on nose = colorpoint, Pink nose = bicolor
Dark ears = seal, Not quite so dark ears = blue (its always easier when you have both colors in the same litter)
Pink earlobes (when they're very young) = tabby, Solid earcolor = solid.
Now you can clearly see who are tabby and who are not, their ears are almost white on the inside.

Now that you point it out, it's really easy to tell! And I guess you had to rule out colors like lilac and chocolate.

Yes, the chocolategene is very rare in ragdolls in Sweden, and the chances that both the parent cats would carrie the gene is close to zero.
Even though Samira's father's father is registrered as lilac in the pedigree, I know for a fact that the cat is actually blue.

But this summer, I will mate Samiras daughter from her last litter, Tifa, to a lilacpointed male, one of the few we have in Sweden (we have two). I'm so happy I got the chance to borrow this male, even though I most likely won't have any chocolates or lilacs in the litter, since Tifa does not carrie the gene (at least not very likely). But they will all be guaranteed carries of the gene, and that alone is very exciting! :D
