    hi, this is my little princess Myny, she is pregnant at the mo and when i rang the vets to register her( as ive only just taken her on )they asked what colour she was, so i just said white, grey and light ginger...for which i got a bit of a lecture off the woman on the phone telling me that she is either tortie or tabby??? i was always inder the impression that torties are like my other cat eeny who is black, ginger and white.
    What would you class myny as?? Photo0717.jpg

    SHe is a blue tortie with white. Calico if you are american. Can't see any tabby on her as well so not a torbie (tortie tabby). Your other cat is a black tortie with white. And looking in your the photo section it looks like the other one is a blue tortie. Are they all sisters?

    The best way to check if it is a dilute is to look at the roots of the hairs. If they are a silver or light colour compared to the tips then she is either a dilute or silver (I have a silver tortie) but looking at the photos, if the roots are light then it would be a dilute.

    I think the first one is seal tortie (is her darkest color black?), with white
    The next one is blue tortie
    the last one is red/white or am I seeing it wrong?
