Some people on a different forum are saying that the dad can't be a black long haired Tom because Nova has blonde/gingery bits in her pattern. Is there any truth to this? Mum is a seal point, not mitted.Awww she's gorgeous! If both her parents are long, than she should be as short is dominant and cannot be a hidden gene.
There's two parts to this. Seal point (to the best of my knowledge) means brown points. The darker coat your cat has as their 'base coat', as well as the strength of the color on the points, is partially influenced by the ambient heat.I didn't know that! Very cool. Except I have a question. My seal point had black points and a chocolate brown body. But what I see people calling cats that I would have called a chocolate point (brown points, white body) a seal point. What am I missing? Are they both seals just one lighter than the other, or are people wrong in calling them seals?
