black silver tabby cat

anonymous asked:

What would the parents need to look like to get a smoke colored kit ?

1. a parent who carries the silver gene

2. two copies of the solid gene

so you can have a 

blue silver tabby x fawn cat

black cat x red silver tabby 

chocolate smoke x blue cat etc etc

Bit of a crazy question, but what would be the most possibly diverse litter when it comes to two parents? Like which two cats could make the widest range of kittens in appearance?

Hooo boy, yeah crazy indeed; this’ll need some brain power, let me think now pls. xD There are a lot of combinations out there that could yield a rainbow’s worth of a kitten litter, but it’s hard to say which would be the most diverse of all… it’ll have to include just about every recessive gene in existence of lordie me, ummmm…

Okay, let’s look at this: 

A shorthaired black-red silver shaded heterozygous ticked tabby calico molly (omg what a mouthful !!) she carries these additional genes: 
- cinnamon
- solid (non-agouti)
- dilution
- non-ticked
- mackerel and classic tabby
- longhair
- amber
- siamese colourpoint

She is mated to this: A longhaired epistatic (dominant white) tom who carries these extra genes beneath his coat: 
- chocolate and cinnamon
- solid 
- one ticked gene
- one spotted tabby gene
- classic tabby
- dilution
- longhair
- one white spotting gene
- amber
- siamese colourpoint

… that’s more than the average amount of recessive genes we usually play with, trust me. owo; Now do you really want me to list every kitten possibility for them? It’s gonna be long. REALLY long.

If this isn’t one of the most colourfully diverse litter outcome possibilities I don’t know what is - forgive me for not completing the list, but I think attempting to do so would’ve driven me mad. x’D
