    My first cat had an all black boys litter and her last litter was black, b &w and ginger & white..shes jet black...

    Each kitten that she produces can have a different dad...

    A different dad for each one? My goodness!! xx
     

  8. I'm no good at genetics lol BUT this is what i found...

    I am pretty sure tabby is dominant so you could get:

    assuming dad is a red tabby & white, and that neither parents carry the genes for dilute or points.

    Brown (black) tabby m & f
    black m
    red m
    black tortie F

    all with or without white.

    I think!!!!! pmsl i'm not very good at this though!


    PLEASE SOMEONE WITH THE GENETICS KNOWLEDGE COME AND ANSWER THIS FOR ME!
     
  9. lol yes very much so!

    Awww, your cat is beautifull! And clearly in very good hands :)

    It's shocking that you were told she was spayed! But i'm sure you will enjoy her litter.

    I hope all goes well for you and your pretty kitty.

    I can see why :)
     
  19. How is she doing now?

    Have you got her onto a kitten food? if not it would be wise to asap, as she needs the extra nutrients to grow healthy kittens.

    She does look like a tortie tabby to me. So you could even get red females if she mated with a red tom.
