Berlin is 5 months today!

ShannonMarie 08-09-2009 12:47 PM

Aww she is adorable! There was a kitten that looked just like that from the litter that I got my kitten from, I ALMOST got him, but I really didn't want a boy cat.

She is SOO cute, I love the lighter markings on her. What coloring would that be called?

Happy 5-month-day Berlin

VanillaRat 08-09-2009 12:51 PM

Thanks! :)
I am not sure...I just call her a mixed tabby!

CrWoodyspets 08-09-2009 02:27 PM

Happy Birthday!! She's so cute!

She's yours right, not a foster?

VanillaRat 08-09-2009 02:39 PM

Oh yeah! She is mine!
I don't foster cats,only dogs.

CrWoodyspets 08-09-2009 02:41 PM

Berlin seems getting more active and playful, love her collar...

at the shelter I worked at in new york, that's called muted Tortoiseshell! You see she has a little orange in her fur just like a tortoisehell! But i am not sure whether muted tortie applies only to tortoishells who are grey instead of black or if it's also for those that are tabby torties.
Tortoiseshell is for cats that are black and orange or grey and orange, and the markings are more like slashes or stripes of orange within the black rather than spots. White, black and orange spots is called calico, calico can also be grey, white and orange.

Shannonmarie, the boy cat you saw also had little bits of orange? if so that's EXTREMELY rare! all tortoiseshell are usually females!

ShannonMarie 08-11-2009 02:03 PM

Yea, he looked exactly like Berlin, but the orange was in different places. I don't have any pics of him though, and I don't think my sister does either. I'll try to find out who got him and see if I can get some pics. :)

Dustette 08-11-2009 02:55 PM

you should tell them they have a rare specimen!

VanillaRat 08-13-2009 01:17 PM

I know what a tortishell cat is,as my ex had one and my mom has a dilute calico.Berlin is tabby though,she doesn't have full "tortie" markings.
Male calico and "torties" are indeed very rare.From the research I have done,if they do exist,they are usually infertile.

EDIT: I think you are right though!
I just looked up muted "torties" and alot of them look like my Berlin!

LuvPets 08-13-2009 09:14 PM

Wow--Berlin is growing up so fast!! Absolutely gorgeous kitty, BTW!!! Happy belated b-day, Berlin!!! *kisses*

Kendalle 08-13-2009 09:52 PM

Normally male tortoise shell cats are infertile and if calico they normally don't live and sometimes are stillborn. It is weird.
