    This is my lilac tabby point and my blue point kittens  -08a.jpg at about 7-8 weeks - (excuse the mucky eyes - I should have wiped before photographing. I think yours could be a lilac

    yeah lilac's possible,mum is lilac tortie point dad is cream bi colour,mixed opinions i see.Hes only 4 weeks yet.His sisters are a lilac tortie bi colour her pads are baby pink-his are a bit darker than hers,his pads look simular colour to his other sister 'a blue tortie point',so i would say hes a blue but the thing is his nose and ears arnt as dark as as the blue tortie's.Ill put a pic up here of that blue tortie girl so you can see what i mean.

    Soooooooooooo hard to tell in pictures due to flash, best to take the pictuer by a patio door / window.

    Is one parent a tabby/lynx? as the inside of his ears look white? so he maybe be a lynx?

    I prob would have said blue, but Ive had no expereince with lilacs so dont know :blush: his lovely :)

    I think my lilacs paw pads were more a soft pinky grey rather than blue. But there are shades of lilac

    I breed birmans, and had lilac and blue pts before, I'd say he's a lilac, definate warm 'pinky' tone there, rather than a cold slate grey you look for in a blue.

    dad was cream bi colour not sure if a lynx as is it right that creams can show pattern whether lynx or not?correct me if im wrong.Mum is lilac tortie point she's not a lynx.I supose lynx/tabby is possible maybe thats why he looks lighter than the blue tortie girls colour:confused:

    remember that that lilac is a tabby so don't look at the nose leather cos it will be pink anyway.
