stripes on legs and tail
stripes on legs and tail
with “leopard spots” on body
There are also other genes that account for points, like a Siamese cat- head, feet and tails darker color
Mutations that cause long hair
Some suggest that many of the white genes are additive
There are many different names for all of the cat genes, and some are just suspected genes…Other genes
Grey tabby with white
Black striped tabby
Black /tabby and white
This does not make any sense in normal mendelian genetics, becaseu tomcat would not be possible. I think the mother must be hetero for S, and be mosltly white because of other gene affects.
Some sources think the white genes may be additive, so there may not be a clear cut between ventral white, <50% and white with spots, >50% as thought.
The queens at the main feral colony are all related-either sisters or mother/daughter. There are 1-2 white queens with black spots, 1-2 white queens with grey spots, without knowing that I should have been looking at striping patterns too, some may be black tabby…. Which may look grey from afar.errors
