I work at a shelter and love cat coat colors and patterns, but I can't figure out what to call this girl! What do you think??

Wow! That's the most unusual color I've ever seen in a cat. My guess is Chocolate Calico. You should put her in a cat show in the HHP (Household Pet) class, and I'm sure the judges would be stunned at her beauty.

Wow! She's stunning!

From what I can see there's a few different genes at work: colorpoint (aka Siamese) from her eyes and the way her points are darker, calico/torti from the blending of orange, Brown, and white, as well as dilute which males her genetically black bits chocolate Brown, and her orange cream.

Amazing.....I'd love more pics if possible!

As far as what to call her, I'd go with 'dilute calico colorpoint/Siamese'.

It almost looks like her face was starting out as a Ragdoll, then the colors just started dancing and twirling all over. I'll bet she doesn't stay at the shelter long. She has the sweetest face. What's her name?

i want this cat. if i didn't already have one too many . . .

she doesn't look like anything else really, but maybe something they call dilute calico? there are dilute calico rex, persian, ragdoll, munchkin, all that but they all look different.

Oh wow how unique! So gorgeous. I am going to go with others and say Chocolate calico. I have seen a (very) few chocolate tortis before and they had a lot of the brown swirls, but not the white. so I am leaning that way on this girl.

here is a pic of a girl with similar coloring (not pattern) labeled as a chocolate calico

seal tortie point bi-colour, or seal tortie point. can't see her underside in those pics but she has bi-colour facial markings.

Dilute calico is not a colour in itself, dilute refers to more than one colour - lilac, blue.

I agree with Missy, she's a seal tortie point and white cat.

There are several spots on her that are clearly black (eg tail tip, ears) so no dilution or chocolate but "seal" (the colorpoint name for black). There are some brownish spots but that's just the effect of the colorpoint gene, it makes black look a little brownish sometimes.

people are sick. just watch the animal control show on animal planet sometime. or don't actually, sometimes people do the most wrong things. there was a guy living in a single hotel room and he had 13 or 17 cats and animal control was called to make him get rid of them. they were all really nice cats and he was taking good care of them, there were just way too many cats in a single room and the smell was bothering other tenants. a mother cat had kittens and they were all fostered to one home. i think his biggest problem was that he didn't have the money to spay or neuter them and they were breeding :( (animal control let him keep 3 cats and paid to have them fixed for him).

Dilute calico is not a colour in itself, dilute refers to more than one colour - lilac, blue.
k thanks. i know nothing about calicos tbh lol, just taking a stab at it. the only breed i really know anything about is siamese, and even their color point classifications have changed. i don't remember cream and lynx and flame point but they have obviously become valid in the last 40 years or so.

Regarding tv shows with people and awful things they do, Rescue Ink is one of those bad but good ones(they get saved from bad endings, by these big ol' biker guys!!) I have a hard time watching it sometimes because of the awful situations these poor animals are in, but it really is a great show, and rescue group.
