Yes, I too am a cat lover. I have had cats all my life.. Dogs too but Cats I have always been super close with.. Like a child. So the very special cat or furry child in my life now is Isabella. And I have had her since she was a kitten. She is 14 now and still acts like a kitten at times.. I admit she has slowed down now, she sleeps more but still loves to play with ribbons.

Introducing Isabella (perched in her fav spot, our bathroom):

Thanks!

well no she's not a Russian Blue but thanks.. She's just a mix. Her parents were a solid white and a solid black. The litter she came from had two whites, two blacks and her.. Genetics...wow.. a mystery.. I guess down the road on either side there were ancestors had more of mix like her (grays, calico, or orange tabby).

Here's some good pics of my big black and white cat who is Bono's Dad. Look at his pretty sea green eyes and perfect pastel pink nose with no spots.





and here's sweet little Constance Marie

question,

can a dilute torti come from parents who were one all black and one all white?

How does the genetics work to get a dilute torti?

Depends. I don't know enough about coloring and pattern genetics to say which are dominant and which are recessive. I'm also unsure as to whether a "dilute" torti is actually some other gene diluting the torti, or a seperate coloring we just call diluted because that's what it looks like. Maybe Sicy will know. Marijke is a torbi (torti+tabby), not dilute b/c she's black and brown rather than gray and tan.


Do you know if the all-white was a true double merle/"lethal white"? A pure white cat with blue eyes (as opposed to red eyes like in albino animals) is very rare and they are almost always deaf and have other health problems. This is usually true for lethal white dogs as well and lethal white horses will not survive more than a week.

lies, I don't know about her parents very well. My hubby got her from someone/a friend just six months prior to me meeting him and becoming isabella's 'mom'. I can ask him if he remembers more but all he said was one parent was all white and the other was all black. The litter had 2 whites, 2 blacks and isabella.
