tortoiseshell catsTortoiseshell cats (torti, calico) are a win–win lottery. Yes, yes, it is a lottery. There is no gene that transmits such a colorful color. Such a fur coat is given by Nature exclusively to female individuals in unpredictable variations. There are, however, exceptions in these exceptions, but their rarity is incredible (for example, one in a million a mustachioed gentleman can be born with such a coat color).

Cats of tortoiseshell color do not have clear frames and proportions. The main indicator of tortoiseshell is the presence of red in the coloring. That is, red spots of different sizes and shades are added to the main tone. Moreover, there is evidence that this type of coloring is unstable and can change under various influences, for example, after molting or childbirth.

According to legend, tortoiseshell cats bring happiness to the house. From time immemorial, people have been happy to let tricolor hunters under their roof, considering this fact to be God's providence. At the moment, felinologists, reacting to the incredible demand, are making a lot of efforts to breed animals of such colors, creating more and more original shades and combinations.

persian tortoiseshell cat

By the way, the classic tortoiseshell cats in Russia were called "bogatki", and felinologists use a slightly different term – calico. They are tricolor: white-black-red (the colors are standard, and the shades vary).

Such a combination of colors and shades is allowed among animals of almost any breed. It can be a Persian tortoiseshell cat, British or Siamese. The differences are only in the color scheme. So, there may well be long-haired or short-haired, purple, chocolate or black "turtles". In some cases, inexperienced breeders confuse the color of tabby with tortoiseshell, similar in the presence of stripes of different shades, but having (according to existing prescribed standards) several color markings on the muzzle. A mixture of scooped and tabby gives the color of torbi (torti).

The eye color of cats depends on the shade of the coat. Almost all "turtles" of all breeds have bright copper-orange eyes. For example, a Siberian cat, whose tortoiseshell color distinguishes it from the rest of its fellows, should have a bright red eye shade as an exception in the breed standard.

It should also be noted that the classifications of different felinological associations prescribe different requirements for shades and type of coloring for different breeds.

siberian tortoiseshell cat

We have told you exclusively about the general provisions that currently exist in relation to the mustachioed "turtles". At exhibitions in cats of this color, the type of backbone, the shape of the head, the structure of the ears and only last of all the color are evaluated. The evaluation in this case has a purely "taste" character. That is, if the judge likes it, then you are in the lead, if not, then "alas and ah". As they say, tastes are not disputed. There are, of course, some conditional criteria, such as brightness and quality of wool, but the shade itself is not regulated by anything clear, that is, strict standards.
