“Noble” colors

One of the most common colors in this category is blue. It is a gray color, which added some other shades, and is a consequence of the long work of felinologists. Most often, the blue color is common in cats of the British breed and Russian blue cats, although British kittens of the blue color are more popular. Their wool has a higher quality, and its color is uneven and contains tones of a wide range – from light blue to rich blue shades. As a rule, the Briton blue color has copper or orange eyes, and is considered “clean”, if there are no stains on the wool – they are completely unacceptable for breeders.

The lilac color of cats is considered more romantic and tender. It is also called belonging to the British breed, although initially purple color appeared in oriental cats and today it is extremely rare in the colors of the Persian breed. However, the most common is still British kittens of lilac color – they have a pinkish-blue fur, which in color resembles forget-me-not petals. The same color is painted on the nose, the paw pads and the rim of the mouth and eyes. It turns out the lilac color of the British due to the interaction of the lighter gene on the genes of the brown color. The main requirement for such coloring is the absence of contrast between wool and undercoat, as well as any pattern.

Finally, another rare and noble color of cats – golden. This includes all sorts of marble, spotted and tiger varieties of colors, although there is also a pure golden color, which is very characteristic of chinchilla cats. The golden color implies coloring the hairs in a bright or light apricot tone, and the shades in different parts of the cat’s body may differ, but they cannot turn into dull and gray tones. Sometimes there are cats that are generally golden in color but have a gray undercoat: this variety is not considered to be a marriage, and is characterized by bright emerald eye color. In addition to chinchillas, the main breeds that have a golden color include some species of Persian cats, golden European cats, Siberian cats (may have a weakly pronounced pattern), and even some British cats, which, however, are not considered “natural”, but bred by Persian breed.
