My little Yuna was not purchased with papers (other than her veterinary documents) so we are trying find out how we would describe her coat colour and pattern. From what I've seen online I'd guess that she is a seal point tabby? Her fur also seems to get lighter or darker at the tips. Any thoughts appreciated :)

Also, her eyes seem to be two distinct colours - blue around the pupil then a sort of pale yellow/gold around the blue. This is most apparent in indoor lighting, outside they are a very pale blueish. Will this change? Is there a technical term for this? She is 8 months old.

One other question. She used to have a 3 distinct stripes running from the base of her neck to her tail, but recently these have become more of a solid darker patch of fur. She's currently shedding a lot - is this change to do with summer/winter coats or her adult coat coming in?

Photos/kittenspam! Hope no one minds lots of pictures ;)

In some of the photos she has slight acne around her mouth - that was resolved by giving her bottled water instead of tap. Such a princess.

She is so adorable! What's her breed? Her coloring looks lynx point to me since my Siamese has similar coloring and she is the same.

And about her fur, all pointed cats have coats that are dependent on temperature... which is why they're born white and slowly fade to darker colors. By about one year of age your kitten should be as dark as she's going to get.

My aunt's cat started out cream colored and now her entire back is chocolate/near black colored; entirely different.

Haha, yup, she's a cutie and she knows it! She's also very sweet natured and loving. She's been in a cone for the past month because of spay complications and I cannot express how much it hurts to see her little face depressed. On the plus side, I've learned that if you offer her an antibiotic she will eat it, no questions asked. Very strange!

Anyway, Lynx seal point sounds about right! Here's a picture of her paw pads if it helps:



Is there a name for the way her fur is white at the tips and dark at the base? I've never had a cat with this before.

Anyone know what colour her eyes are? Under LED lights they're very golden but blueish at other times. I'd probably describe them as grey since they seem to take on the colour of her surroundings, but I don't think cats can get grey eyes, can they?

A few more pictures I have on my desktop. This was when she was very small:


And one of her favourite ways to sleep:

^^^ I call that the "dead cat pose" when my Shelly does it. :D She looks like such a little doofus when she rolls onto her back and looks up at me with those big eyes of hers.

What great owl eyes! Absolutely adooorable!

His coloring is quite similar to my Devon Rex boy Zuba (check out his photo in my album). Zuba was registered as Seal-silver Lynxpoint and white. Your SF is showing the mackeral tabby pattern, which may be a "ghost" pattern that disappears when his adult coat comes in. I would say now he's seal-silver mackeral tabby, but if his tabbby body markings disappear then seal-silver lynxpoint. Zuba's coloring is different in his summer coat than winter...and right now his body color is more fawn-beige color like your cat. You should put him in a HHP=Household Pet class at a cat show and let the judges figure out what his color is.....he's a stunner and I'm sure would win some ribbons. He doesn't need any registration papers to enter in a HHP class. Gorgeous cat! lucky you!
