BURMILLA
The overall impression of the Burmilla is a medium foreign type – similar to the Foreign Burmese, but non-Burmese in coat, pattern and length. The Burmilla bears the same relationship to Foreign Burmese as the Oriental to the Siamese. Siamese head type or cobbiness of the British Shorthair is regarded as a fault.

I – BODY/CONFORMATION (25)
(10) BODY – Medium in length and thickness with firm muscles. Straight back from shoulder to rump. Chest is generous but not disproportionately broad.
(10) LEGS & FEET – Medium in length with hind legs slightly longer than front. Paws oval in shape.
(5) TAIL – Medium to long. Medium in thickness and tapering slightly to a rounded tip.

II – HEAD TYPE (25)
(15) FULL FACE – Wide at jaw hinge with good width between  ears. Gently rounded top head. Short wedge and in profile, a noticeable but gentle nose break is apparent.
Firm chin.
(5) EARS – Medium to large with rounded tips and set well apart, continuing angle of upper face to produce a butterfly-wing outline from front. In profile, slight forward tilt. Ear tufts are acceptable in both short and long hairs.
(5) EYES– Slightly oriental in shape but neither almond nor round. Set well apart. Large and expressive.

III – COAT TEXTURE/LENGTH (20)
SHORTHAIR – Short, fine and close lying with a slight“lift”. Slight ear tufts are acceptable.
LONGHAIR – Silky and fine in texture. Longer on tail and noticeable ruff. Furnishings inside ears to form “streamers” and tufts at tips of ears are acceptable.

IV – COLOUR (30)
See Coat Colour Description for more details. For cats without pattern, allow 20 points for colour.
(10) COLOUR
(10) PATTERN 
the full details are delivered as a separate document (below) and are linked
Solid – 100% of colour (no silver or golden)
Smoke – 75% of colour (25% silver or golden) these % breakdowns would have to be amended it our suggested changes are passed
Shaded – 50% of colour (50% silver or golden)
Shell / Chinchilla – 25% of colour (75% silver or golden) names would require changes
Tabby – Ticked, Spotted, Mackerel,Classic, Patched (may be silver or golden) patched would change
(10) EYE COLOUR– Colour may range from yellow through chartreuse (green preferred).

V – CONDITION & BALANCE (0)
Healthy and alert. Muscular and firm.

REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS:F1 Allowed
SHOWING REQUIREMENTS:F1 Allowed
ALLOWED ANCESTRY:
Burmese, Foreign Burmese,
Burmilla (LH & SH),
Chinchilla Persian (used only once as the foundation breeding of a new line and not tobe repeated in that line),

ALLOWED MATINGS:Burmilla (LH & SH), Burmese, Foreign Burmese, Chinchilla Persian (used only once as the foundation breeding of a new line and not to be repeated in that line).

1998 06 22





Explanation of  ALLOWED ANCESTRY:


Traditional Chinchilla Persian (used only once as the foundation breeding of a new line and not to be repeated in that line).


Traditional and/or Foreign Burmese to ensure Burmese type and temperament .

Burmillas of all colours, patterns and coat lengths as described above.

This breeding program is specific in the first 4 generations and should be adhered to as follows:

Step 1: 
Burmese x Chinchilla
This gives 1st generation, (gen. 1), Burmillas. This gives Shaded or Tipped varieties or occasionally Ticked Tabbies if the Chinchilla carries Golden.

Step 2:
1st gen. Burmilla back again to Burmese This gives 2nd generation, (gen.2), Burmillas.  At this stage you can expect to get Tabbies, Selfs and Smokes as well as Shaded or Tipped varieties.

Step 3:
2nd generation Burmilla to an unrelated Burmilla (any variety)
This gives 3rd generation, (gen 3), Burmillas.  Again any variety is possible, including longhaired Burmillas, (Tiffanies), if the 2nd gen. cats both carry the longhair gene.

Step 4:
3rd generation Burmilla should be mated back to Burmese
This gives the 4th generation, (gen.4), Burmillas.

After that, matings should mainly be Burmilla to Burmilla.

There is a need to provide some flexibility is this in order  to accomodate heterozygous Chinchilla Persians. The objective remains the same, Burmese type with some imported genetics from the Chinchilla. A full Burmilla should show at least 3 breedings to the Burmese in it's ancestry.

Summary of:  Meeting at All About Pets, various emails and phone calls
Jean, Ann, Elaine, Beth, Ivan, Josee, Johanne, Kim
 
Black
according to Elaine ebony is considered the darker colour so I stand corrected. The comments jet black to be removed.


Patched

Elaine has asked that we go with patched and (tortoishell) in brackets as this is standard with the CCA and the judges understanding.
This may become redundant if we take out the red genetics (see below)
 

Comment

The standard is too large and too complex and judges are becoming discouraged " show me the illa"
 

Some suggestions

Remove as (AOV) the following for show (ie. Not to be shown)
* the solid cats
* the tabbies except the ticked cats  all out are classic , mackeral and spotted
 
All shaded are ticked thus no tabby designation as in the tipped cats
Increase the tipped designation ( shaded are then 75% - 10% colour
* Tipping = colour @10% or silver @ 90%
* Shading = colour @ 10-75% or silver @ 25-90%
* Ticked Tabbies = colour @ greater than 75% & silver  (could aov this group as well??)
 
Remove the designation golden and silver
 
Show only the silver cats (this removes the caramel question and the golden question)
 
The smokes remain as do Shaded and Tipped
 
Remove the red genetics (this removes the Patched/Cameo/Shell question)
 
The Burmese and full expression colours are not differentiated   thus
There are only the following colours:

      Black (covers Ebony term)

      Brown (covers FE Brown, Sable, Champagne)**

      Blue (covers Blue, Indigo)**

      Platinum (covers Frost, Platinum)**
** They are fundamentally difficult to differentiate in silver based cats anyway


Hi Ann and Ivan and everyone,

I have a Chocolate Silver Classic Tabby girl from England and she is gorgeous, I would hate to see them go by the way side, because they haven't been seen before.

The Remove as (AOV) the Following for showing (can be used for breeding, but not for Showing):

The Solids (like you said)
The Goldens (confusion between Ivory and White)

Ticked are not Shaded, they have an extra bar of a different Colour in the hair Shaft).
Should be:
Tipped (Colour at end of the hair shaft)
Shaded (Colour about half way down the hair shaft)
Smoked (Colour about 2/3rds the way down the hair shaft)
Ticked (Colour about 2/3rds the way down the hair shaft, but has an extra colour bar to split the main colour on hair shaft)
Solid (Colour all the way down the hair shaft)

"Show only the silver cats (this removes the caramel question and the golden question)"...No, this isn't so, I have a Caramel (Lilac based) Silver Ticked Tabby female and I have a kitten from the previous Mom (sister to the one I have), who is a Caramel (Blue based) Tortie Silver Ticked Tabby, so I still believe that you need to keep the Caramel as a Colour, even in the Silvers.

I don't believe that removing the Red or Cream Gene will help, the reason being, is most of the World is Breeding these colours in the Asians and Burmillas, the only Country who isn't currently breeding these colours (and that could change soon) is Australia.  Do you know how hard it will be to only use cats who are from the 4 Colours and to produce kittens or cats that don't have the Red or Cream Gene will also be hard.  I think you would be shooting yourself in the foot if you do this.  I like those Torties and I love showing them.

Sincerely,
Kim

BURMILLA
NOTES:
The Burmese colour restriction gene [cbcb] has the effect of reducing the melanin in the hair shaft particularly close to the skin, thus the colour may not be sound to the root, and the cat may have a denser concentration of pigment on the mask and ears.
Eye colour.
There is a the connection between the melanin production, as regulated by the various recessive mutations of the full colour (C) gene and the colour deposited on the iris of the eye.  Copper (eye) is the unrestricted/darkest form and varies through burmese sepia-- cb/cb  - - - gold eyes and Siamese sepia -- cs/cs--- blue eyes.
The blue eye is the result of a lack on colour deposition on the front half only of the iris in both cats and humans.
The silver/inhibitor [I] gene is responsible for producing a "shredded or weakened phaeomelanin"  and thus green eyes.

BURMILLA

The Burmese colour restriction gene [cbcb] has the effect of reducing the melanin in the hair shaft particularly close to the skin, thus the colour may not be sound to the root on the solid cat, and the cat may have a denser concentration of pigment on the mask and ears.

   Coat Length:

The Burmilla can be both Long [l/l] and short hair [L/-]

  Eye Colour:

There is a connection between the melanin production, as regulated by the various recessive mutations of the full colour (C) gene and the colour deposited on the iris of the eye. Copper (eye) is the unrestricted/darkest form and varies through Burmese sepia -- cb/cb - - gold eyes and Siamese sepia -- cs/cs -- blue eyes.

The blue eye is the result of a lack of colour deposition on the front half only of the iris in both cats and humans. The silver/inhibitor [I] gene is responsible for producing a "shredded or weakened phaeomelanin” and thus green eyes. The resulting eye colour is “yellow through chartreuse (green preferred)” for all cats.

This section constitutes the colours that are available, following sections deal with the pattern variations of these colours. All following references to colour should come back to this section.
Since the shorthaired Burmilla is of non-Burmese coat colour and pattern, only the solid Black and Indigo Brown and Frost can be shown. However, all solid colours can be registered.

This section defines the colours that are available in all cats. All following references to coat nose leather paw pad and eye colour should reference this section. Comments with regard to colour being sound to the root pertain to the solid cat only. Since the shorthaired Burmilla is of non-Burmese coat colour and pattern, only the solid Ebony (Black), Indigo, Brown, and Frost can be shown. However, all solid colours can be registered.

It is interesting to note the use of the term "Fawn" and that in this case it appears that the use of honey would indicate the underlying golden /silver  genetics . We are not sure of the base colour understanding here as TAUPE has not been described

Sable is not a "colour" it is a compination of two genetic characteristics black and burmese sepia, to produce sable, as are the following examples of well recognized combinations:
Indigo  - -black and dilute
Blue - - black, sepia, and dilute
There are only two recognized colours -  black and brown and in fact it may well be that there is only one colour and the variation in what is seen is due to colour dot shape.

SMOKE  [ as above plus Wb/- , swb/swb and I/- or ii]
The Burmilla Smoke is a non-agouti cat as are all solid cats above and varies from the solid cats only in one aspect - that it displays the wide band genetics .
All colours defined in the solid section above, are available. The cat is defined by colour and followed by the term SMOKE.

Some faint ghost marking may be evident on the body especially in kittens, but is undesirable in adults. There may be silver frown marks on the forehead and silver rings round the eyes, sometimes know as "Clown" markings.
Our current understanding is as follows;
The Agouti (ticked) cat is distinguishable by the brick nose, the non agouti cats have nose colour that matches paw pad colour.  Thus any cat that has a brick nose can not be defined or shown as a SMOKE. The only exception is the genetic Orange (red cream) cat as the  brick nose
colour is largely non-distinguishable from the red nose.

Wide banding is made up of two genes one dominant and one recessive, that  work in both agouti and not agouti cats to vary the amount of colour [B/-] depositied on the hair shaft.
There are a number of factors that affect this colour deposition.  Black[B/-] is the "strongest"colour. Its' deposition on the hair shaft is reduced in its' recessive form [bb] (shape of colour dot) , by the sepia genetics [cbcb] (temperature sensitivity), the dilution genetics [dd] (dot deposition pattern/clustering) and by the affect of the "silver inhibitor' gene  [I/-]  as against golden [ii] and whether the cat's normal colour production is amended by the sex linked orange overide (eumelanin vs phaeomelanin, the latter being more sensative to [I/-]).
Thus there can be both  golden smokes and a silver smokes  As a result the ground colour can be white [I/-] or pale cream [ii] and the  hair shaft will have a varying percentage of colour pigmentation dependant upon whether one or both wideband genes are present and the accumulation of recessives mentioned above. The ideal SMOKE has usually been seen as clearly silver on the undercoat and having 50% of colour. This should no longer be the case.
It is not intended that golden smokes and silver smokes be differentiated at this time. But judges and breeders should be aware of the possibilities and recogize that the smoking base colour and amount  can be  highly variable. The cat should clearly be a "smoke".
The golden smoke will additionally deliver a perceivable darker hue to the main colour particularly in the (weeker) colours rendering the Blue cat to (caramel), Lilac to (taupe) and Cream to (apricot). These darker coats and conversely the "powder coats" (silver cats) are also not differentiated at this time.

NOTE:
The orange based cats (Red and Cream
and Tortie smokes)  will not show much if any colouration due to the increased sensitivity of phaeomelanin (orange genetics ) to silver [I/-]. Thus a sable tortie smoke may appear very uneven in colour with almost no red in sight, and a red or cream smoke may be almost all silver and appear Tipped. In fact it can often be impossible to differentiate a red tipped from a red smoke and may not be determined until subsequent breeding. While this would be of concern to the breeder it should not affect the judging process.

SMOKE  (non agouti, wide band cats)
[as above plus Wb/- , swb/swb and I/- or ii]

The Burmilla Smoke is a non-agouti cat and varies from the solid cats only in one aspect in that it displays the wide band genetics. All colours defined in the solid section above, are available. The cat is named by colour and followed by the term SMOKE.

Some faint ghost marking may be evident on the body especially in kittens, but is undesirable in adults. There may be silver frown marks on the forehead and silver rings round the eyes, sometimes know as "Clown" markings.

The Agouti (ticked) cat is distinguishable by the brick nose whereas the non agouti cats have nose colour that matches paw pad colour. Thus any cat that has a brick nose can not be defined or shown as a SMOKE.

Wide banding is made up of two genes one dominant and one recessive, that work in both agouti and not agouti cats to vary the amount of colour [B/-] depositied on the hair shaft.

There are a number of factors that affect this colour deposition.  Black[B/-] is the "strongest" colour. Its' deposition on the hair shaft is reduced in its' recessive form [bb] (shape of colour dot), by the sepia genetics [cbcb] (temperature sensitivity), the dilution genetics [dd] (dot deposition pattern/clustering) and by the affect of the "silver inhibitor' gene  [I/-]  as against golden [ii]

Thus there can be both golden smokes and silver smokes  The ideal SMOKE has usually been seen as clearly silver on the undercoat and having 50% or less of colour.



















The only exception is the genetic Orange (red cream) cat as the brick nose colour is largely non-distinguishable from the red nose.









and whether the cat's normal colour production is amended by the sex linked orange overide (eumelanin vs phaeomelanin, the latter being more sensative to [I/-]).

As a result, the ground colour can be white [I/-] or pale cream [ii] and the hair shaft will have a varying percentage of colour pigmentation dependant upon whether one or both wideband genes are present and the accumulation of recessives mentioned above.

This should no longer be the case.

It is not intended that golden smokes and silver smokes be differentiated at this time. But judges and breeders should be aware of the possibilities and recognize that the smoking base colour and amount can be highly variable. The cat should clearly be a "smoke". The golden smoke will additionally deliver a perceivable darker hue to the main colour particularly in the (weeker) colours rendering the blue cat to (caramel), lilac to (taupe) and cream to (apricot). These darker coats and conversely the "powder coats" (silver cats) are also not differentiated at this time.
NOTE:
The orange based cats (red and cream and tortie smokes) will not show much if any colouration due to the increased sensitivity of phaeomelanin (orange genetics) to silver [I/-]. Thus a sable tortie smoke may appear very uneven in colour with almost no red in sight, and a red or cream smoke may be almost all silver and appear Tipped. In fact it can often be impossible to differentiate a red tipped from a red smoke and may not be determined until subsequent breeding. While this would be of concern to the breeder it should not affect the judging process.

TABBY PATTERNS (agouti, narrow band cats)
[ A/- ,   I/- or i/i , -- , O/- or o/o, plus   wb/wb, Swb/- , Ta/-, if not then, Mc/- and Sp/- and the recessive of each ]

OVERVIEW

The tabby pattern is formed by markings of the solid pattern of colour on a background of agouti hairs. The pattern colour in standard tabbies should be that of the equivalent colour Burmilla solids and torties and their Burmese colour restriction counterparts. In silver tabbies the pattern colour may lack warmth (I.e., red or cream) and should not be penalized. The pattern colour in spotted, classic and mackerel tabbies should match on head, body, legs and tail. There should be no speckling of agouti hairs in the markings and the pattern. On ticked tabbies the pattern colour on head, legs and tail should match the ticking colour on the body.

In golden tabbies the markings should be dense, as near as possible to the roots and in silver tabbies they should extend well down the hairshaft. The markings should show good contrast with the ground colour, but in dilute colours the contrast between the markings and the ground colour is less than the required in non-dilute colours. In tortoishell tabbies the distribution of tortie markings is immaterial.
   
TICKED TABBY
[as above Plus   Ta/-]
The body hair is to be ticked with two or three bands of colour with shades of the marking colour and ground colour. The pattern should be free of spots, stripes or blotches (except for darker dorsal shading). Lighter undersides may show buttons on chest and stomach. The face and tail must show distinct tabby markings. Legs may or may not be barred. Any necklaces may be broken or unbroken.

OBJECTIONS:
Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot - where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tamishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies

NOTE:
The orange based silver cats (Red , Cream and Torties)  will show reduced colouration due to the increased sensitivity of phaeomelanin (orange genetics) to silver [I/-]. Thus a silver tortie may appear very uneven in colour with almost no red in sight, and a red or cream may be almost shaded. Conversely, it can often be impossible to differentiate a red ticked golden from a red solid and may not be determined until subsequent breeding. While this would be of concern to the breeder it should not affect the judging process.

NOTE:
Indications of a mask or colour [C/- versus cbcb] not sound to
the root (colour pointing /sepia) is not differentiated at this time and could be confused with silver versus golden[I/- versus ii].

MACKEREL TABBY
[as above but tata, Mc/-, spsp]
The body pattern conforms to the same specifications as the Classic Tabby except the design of the markings - instead of swirls or Circles, has vertical bands of darker colour markings on the cat's sides. This 'butterfly' is delineated by thin lines instead of solid colouring. This pattern can have three distinct spinal lines but they are narrow and usually meld into each other. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.

OBJECTIONS:
Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot-where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies    

CLASSIC TABBY
 [as above plus  - - tata, mcmc, spsp]
The markings are dense, clearly defined and broad. Legs barred with bracelets. Tail markings can range from complete or broken rings to a continuation of the darker colour of the spine line and ends with a dark tip (except in red, cream, apricot-where a light tip is permitted.). Necklaces will be broken, the more the better. Frown marks on forehead should form a letter 'M'.  The line runs back from outer comer of eye to form 'spectacles'. There are swirls on the cheeks. Vertical lines over back of the head extend to shoulder markings which end in the shape of a butterfly. Spine markings consist of a vertical line down the spine from butterfly to tail with a vertical stripe paralleling it on each side. A large oval blotch on each side is to be encircled by one or more rings. Side markings should be the same on both sides. There are vest buttons on chest and stomach.

NOTE:
Markings can vary considerably and still meet the standard. Such variations include the width of the spine lines; single or double 'butterfly' pattern; number of necklaces; complete circular markings of the 'bull's eye'; number of rings on tail.

OBJECTIONS:
Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail. licking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies.
   
SPOTTED TABBY
[as above plus  (Sp/-]

The spotted cat comes in two varieties, the spotted mackeral [Mc/-] as in the Ocicat (discontinuous vertical stripes) and the spotted classic [mcmc] as in the Bengal (rounded spots, more random pattern. Pattern conforms to the same specifications as the classic tabby pattern, except the body pattern is comprised of spots or dots rather than swirls and lines. It is not intended to differentiate at this time. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Spine lines may appear solid but preference is given to spots. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.

OBJECTIONS:
Solid Mackerel markings or spots that run together. Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot - where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies

NOTE:
A 'marble' pattern is seen in heterozygous spotted classic cats [mcmc, Spsp].

SHADED SILVER & GOLDEN  [ A/ ,  -  I/- or ii and WB/-]

Burmillas will have shading on the face and a mantel of colour shading down from the spine to a lighter shade on the chest, stomach and under the tail.
A shaded cat is an agouti cat  in which between 25 and 75 % on the hair shaft is not marked and shows only the golden or silver.
As  the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability shaded golden cats are usually and the lower end of the 25/75 spectrum.
This variety has all the same colour and pattern classes as the ticked cat above with the shaded term added.  Because of the reduced pattern definition some varieties become more difficult to define.
Again as the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability on the red/cream genetics (phaeomelanin cats) most of the shaded silver cats will appear almost tipped and pattern identification will be almost impossible. While this is for the breeder to know it should not affect the judging decisions.

SHADED  (agouti, wide band cats)
classification includes the tipped cats not differentiated
[ A/ ,  -  I/- or ii and Wb/-]
excessive tipping would be seen as a fault


Burmillas will have shading on the face and a mantel of colour shading down from the spine to a lighter shade on the chest, stomach and under the tail. A shaded cat is an agouti cat in which between 25 and 75 % on the hair shaft is not marked and shows only the golden or silver.

As the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability shaded golden cats are usually at the lower end of the 25/75 spectrum.



TIPPED (Chinchilla)  (agouti, super wide band cats)
[ A/ ,  -  I/- or ii and WB/-, swb/swb]

Burmillas will have tipping on the face, with a light mantel of colour shading from the spine to the sides and tail. The pigment will only show at the extremities of the hairs .
A tipped cat is an agouti cat  in which more than 75 % on the hair shaft is not marked and shows only the golden or silver.

As the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability tipped golden cats are usually at the lower end of the 75% "no colour" spectrum and may not be seen as clearly tipped. Flexibility is suggested. If fact a shaded golden is probable genetically [Wb, swbswb].














The shaded cats have all the same colour and pattern classes as the tabby cat above with the shaded term added.  Because of the reduced pattern definition some pattern varieties become more difficult to define.

and be evenly distributed in the non tortoiseshell variety.

Again as the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability on the red/cream genetics (phaeomelanin cats) most of the shaded silver cats will appear almost tipped and pattern identification will be almost impossible. While this is for the breeder to know it should not affect the judging decisions.



Tipping so slight as to be barely discernable is undesirable except in the "red/cream variety .

Again as the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability on the red/cream genetics (phaeomelanin cats) most of these cats will have almost no colour.

This variety has all the same colour and pattern classes as the ticked and shaded cat above with the "Tipped" term added. Because of the reduced pattern definition all varieties become impossible to define in the adult cat. They are therefore not differentiated for judging purposes.

Colour is also often severely reduced and the ability to differentiate between the "weaker" colours may be a problem particularly in the juvenile cats. Judges and breeders should make their best determination, at the time, based on their understanding of what they see. Breeders should be aware of the possibility of surprises in the breeding of such cats.

TIPPED  (SHELL & CHINCHILLA) (Chinchilla) [ A/ ,  -  I/- or ii and WB/-, swb/swb]

Burmillas will have tipping on the face, with a light mantel of colour shading from the spine to the sides and tail. The pigment will only show at the extremities of the hairs and be evenly distributed. Tipping so slight as to be barely discernable is undesirable except in the "red/cream variety .
A tipped cat is an agouti cat  in which more than 75 % on the hair shaft is not marked and shows only the golden or silver.
As  the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability tipped golden cats are usually and the lower end of the 75% "no colour" spectrum and may not be seen as clearly tipped. Flexibility is suggested. If fact a shaded golden is probable genetically [Wb, swbswb].
This variety has all the same colour and pattern classes as the ticked and shaded cat above with the "tipped" term added.  Because of the reduced pattern definition all varieties become impossible to define in the adult cat.
They are therefor not differentiated for judging purposed.
Colour is also often severly reduced and the ability to differentiate between the "weeker" colours may be a problem particularly in the juvenile cats.  Judges and breeders should make their best determination, at the time based on their understanding of what they see. Breeders should be aware of the possibility of surprises in the breeding of such cats.
Again as the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability on the red/cream genetics (phaeomelanin cats) most of these  cats will have almost no colour .

TABBY PATTERNS  [ A/- , B/- C/-, D/-,  I/- , L/-, O/-, and recessive of each plus   wb/wb, Swb/- , Ta/-, if not then, Mc/- and Sp/- and the recessive of each ]
OVERVIEW

The tabby pattern is formed by markings of the solid pattern of colour on a background of agouti hairs. The pattern colour in standard tabbies should be that of the equivalent colour Burmilla solids and torties and their Burmese colour restriction counterparts. In silver tabbies the pattem colour may lack warmth (I.e., red or cream) and should not be penalized. The pattern colour in spotted, classic and mackerel tabbies should match on head, body, legs and tail. There should be no speckling of agouti hairs in the markings and the pattem, which consists of dark agouti on a light agouti background, If so it must be penalized. On ticked tabbies the pattern colour on head, legs and tail should match the ticking colour on the body.

In golden tabbies the markings should be dense, as near as possible to the roots and in silver tabbies they should extend well down the hairshaft. The markings should show good contrast with the ground colour, but in dilute colours the contrast between the markings and the ground colour is less than the required in non-dilute colours. In tortoishell tabbies the distribution of tortie markings is immaterial.
genetics [Agouti, all colours, silver and golden, longhair and shorthair, orange overide, narrowband, not super wide band and abby tabby and if not then  mackerel or classic and spotted or not ]

TICKED TABBY  [as above Plus   Ta/-. ]
Body hair to be ticked with two or three bands of colour with shades of the marking colour and ground colour. The pattern should be free of spots, stripes or blotches (except for darker dorsal shading). Lighter undersides may show buttons on chest and stomach. Face and tail must show distinct tabby markings. Legs mayor may not be barred. Any necklaces may be broken or unbroken.
OBJECTIONS: Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot - where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tamishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies
NOTE:
The orange based silver cats (Red , Cream
and Torties)  will show reduced colouration due to the increased sensitivity of phaeomelanin (orange genetics ) to silver [I/-]. Thus a silver tortie  may appear very uneven in colour with almost no red in sight, and a red or cream may be almost shaded. Conversly it can often be impossible to differentiate a red ticked golden from a red solid and may not be determined until subsequent breeding. While this would be of concern to the breeder it should not affect the judging process.
Note; indications of a mask or colour [C/- versus cbcb] not sound to
the root (colour pointing /sepia) is not differentiated at this time and could be confused with [I/- versus ii].

MACKEREL TABBY [as above but tata, Mc/-, spsp]
Pattern conforms to the same specifications as the Classic Tabby except the design of the markings-instead of swirls or Circles, the body pattern has vertical bands of darker colour markings on the cat's sides. The 'butterfly' is delineated by thin lines instead of solid colouring. This pattern can have three distinct spinal lines but they are narrow and usually meld into each other. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.
OBJECTIONS: Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot-where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration n Silver tabbies
genetic  [not abbytabby,  mackeral, not spotted]






102
CLASSIC TABBY   [as above plus  - - tata, mcmc, spsp]
Markings dense, clearly defined and broad. Legs barred with bracelets. Tail markings can range from complete or broken rings to a continuation of the darker colour of the spine line and ends with a dark tip (except in red, cream, apricot-where a lighttip is permitted.). Necklaces will be broken, the more the better. Frown marks on forehead should form a letter 'M'. Line runs back from outer comer of eye to form 'spectacles'. Swirls on cheeks. Vertical lines over back of head extend to shoulder markings which end in the shape of a butterfly. Spine markings consist of a vertical line down the spine from butterfly to tail with a vertical stripe paralleling it on each side. Large oval blotch on each side to be encircled by one or more rings. Side markings should be the same on both sides. Vest buttons on chest and stomach.
NOTE: Markings can vary considerably and still meet the standard. Such variations include the width of the spine lines; single or double 'butterfly' pattern; number of necklaces; complete circular markings of the 'bull's eye'; number of rings on tail.
OBJECTIONS: Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail. licking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies.

SPOTTED TABBY  [as above plus  (Sp/-]
The spotted cat comes in two varieties, the spotted mackeral [Mc/-] as in the Ocicat (discontinuous vertical stripes) and the spotted classic [mcmc] as in the Bengal (rounded spots , more random pattern. Pattern conforms to the same specifications as the classic tabby pattern, except the body pattern is comprised of spots or dots rather than swirls and lines. It is not intended to differentiate at this time. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Spine lines may appear solid but preference is given to spots. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.
OBJECTIONS: Solid Mackerel markings or spots that run together. Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot - where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration n Silver tabbies
NOTE  a  'marble' pattern is seen in heterozygous spotted classic cats [mcmc, Spsp] .

The proposed CFA standard as taken from the GCCF in England

Comments are in red   Much of what is seen here  is the rational that resulted from some very long and extensive discussion of the English standard and why so much of it was rejected by CCA.
Colours have only one undesputed means of definition - and that is based on genetics. Most fancies are slowly coming to that conclusion. Anything else causes problems.

GENERAL: The Asian is an elegant, unique cat breed of far eastern origin, moderate type with gently rounded contours. The Asian Shorthair's reason for being is the coat color and in the Asian LH it is the coat color as well as the coat length. They are alert, active and intelligent with a very friendly disposition. Any oriental elongation or excessive cobbiness is incorrect and should be regarded as a fault. Reds, Creams and Apricots may show "freckles" on the nose, paw pads, lips, eye rims and ears. Slight freckling in  a mature cat should not be penalized.

HEAD: Top slightly rounded. Good breadth between the ears. Wide cheekbones, tapering to a short blunt wedge.

EARS: Medium in size. Set well apart. Slight forward tilt. Broad at the base. Slightly rounded tips. The outer line continues the shape of the upper face, except as that may not be possible in mature, full-cheeked males. Ear tufts and streamers are preferable in the Asian Semi-longhair. Allowance should be made for correctly shaped but over-large ears in kittens where the head size and shape is still developing.

MUZZLE: Visible nose break. Jaw wide at the base. Strong lower jaw. Strong chin and the bite level and even. Nose Leather should be appropriate to the coat color. In agouti (Tabby and Shaded) cats, may be pink rimmed with the equivalent solid or tortie color.

EYES: Large. Alert. Set well apart. Top line slightly curved, with an oriental slant toward the nose. Lower line rounded. Eye Rims Appropriate to the coat color.

EYE COLOR: The eyes may be any color from yellow through to green, depending on the variety. In the Silver Tipped and Shadeds green is preferred, in the Solid rich yellow to gold is preferred.

BODY: Medium to Medium-large length and size. Firm Muscle Tone Preferred. Chest strong and rounded in profile. Back straight from the shoulder to the rump.

LEGS and FEET: Legs are slender and in proportion to the body, of medium length with the hind legs slightly longer. Feet medium and oval.

TAIL: Medium to long length. Not thick at the base. Tapering slightly to a rounded tip. The length should be sufficient for the tip to reach the shoulder when the tail is brought gently around the side of the body.

COAT: (Shorthairs) Short, fine  close-lying. Very glossy. Satin-like in texture. Almost without undercoat.

COAT: (Longhairs) Should have a fine and silky coat medium long, except over the shoulders and without a woolly undercoat.

COAT COLOR: Coat color may be Black, Blue, Chocolate, Lilac, Red, Cream, Black Tortie, Blue Tortie, Chocolate Tortie, Lilac Tortie, Caramel. Apricot, or Caramel  Tortie. The Burmese color restriction of any of these colors is acceptable in all except the Solid and Tortie varieties and the Silver gene is accepted throughout the range.

All the following descriptions are for fully mature cats. In Burmese restriction colored kittens, the coat color will be slower to develop. The Burmese color restriction gene reduces the melanin in the hair shaft, particularly near the skin, thus color in these cats cannot be sound to the roots of the hair. In Burmese restriction colors, the cat may have a denser concentration of pigment on the mask and ears. The full expression color non-agouti Asian Tortie will show a greater degree of color than Tortie Asians of other patterns. In Silvers the inhibitor gene may cause the color to lack warmth. This should not be penalized. In Asian Longhairs, the longer body hair may appear to cause paling of the color. This would have to do with the uncoloured undercoat.

PENALIZE: Pronounced muzzle pinch (top view). Oriental eye shape. Round eyes.??? Flat brow. Excessive cobbiness. Extreme or Aggressive temperament.

DISQUALIFY: White markings anywhere, other than those referred to in the color description. Small or close set eyes. Visible tail kink.??? Lack of weight or condition.

AOV: Any Asian SH in the 10 European Burmese colors, not to be shown.

COLORS:
BASE COLORS

Black (Full Expression Color):genetic B/-, C/- D/-. Jet black. Paw pads: Black or dark brown. Nose leather and eye-rims: Black.
Actually our experience of this is a ebony colour that will show a brown tinge under clear sunlight. carefull with this jet black term.

Brown (Burmese Color Restriction):genetic B/-, cb/cb, --. Rich, warm seal brown. Very dark color bordering on black is incorrect. very good Paw pads, nose leather and eye-rims: Brown. this is the English term - -  Sable is the NA term and a better discriptor given the comments below - - see Chocolate  -this is the cat that equals the sable burmese -and could not be shown

Blue (Full Expression Color): genetic B/-, C/- d/d. Medium to dark blue, showing silvery sheen to rounded areas of body. Nose leather and eye-rims: Blue. Paw pads: Blue or lavender.

Blue (Burmese Color Restriction):genetic B/-, cb/cb --. Soft silvery blue grey, which may be very slightly darker on the face, back and tail, showing silvery sheen to rounded areas of head and body. Nose leather and eye-rims: Dark grey. Paw pads: Pinkish grey. genetic B/-, cb/cb.

note two para  above are trouble - this will confuse the judging , registration and public -also   the present rules disqualify the full expression cat from showing where as the non dilite version 
"Black " is not. The colours must be differentiated by name.

Chocolate (Full Expression Color):genetic b/b-, C/- D/-. gene Rich warm chestnut brown, no dark or cold tones. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Brown or pinkish brown.  Again this is the English term   this is the cat that equals the Havanna Brown when a/a

Chocolate (Burmese Color Restriction): genetic b/b-, cb/cb--- Warm milk chocolate, which may be slightly darker on the face, back and tail, evenness of color overall is very desirable. Nose leather and eye-rims: Warm chocolate brown. Paw pads: Brick pink shading to chocolate. this is the cat that equals the Champagne burmese and could not be shown

note again two para  above are trouble - this will confuse the judging , registration and public and disqualify the full expression cat from being shown The colours must be differentiated by name.

Lilac (Full Expression Color):genetic b/b-, C/- d/d- Frosty grey with a distinct pinkish tone giving an overall appearance of lilac. Color too blue or too fawn is undesirable. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pinkish lilac. Again this is the English term

Lilac (Burmese Color Restriction): genetic b/b-, C/- ---Pale delicate dove grey, with a slight pinkish cast giving a rather muted effect. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Lavender pink.   this is the cat that equals the platinum burmese when a/a and could not be shown

note again two para  above are trouble - this will confuse the judging , registration and public and disqualify the full expression cat from being shown  The colours must be differentiated by name


Red (Full Expression Color):genetic b/b-, C/- - - -  O/O(Ox)- Rich intense red, as even as possible. Nose Ieather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pink.  ----- tangerene???

Red (Burmese Color Restriction): Light tangerine. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pink.
this is the cat that equals the red burmese when a/a  and could not be shown

note again two para  above are trouble - this will confuse the judging , registration and public and disqualify the full expression cat from being shown  The colours must be differentiated by name.


Cream (Full Expression Color): Medium cool toned cream, as even as possible. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pink.

Cream (Burmese Color Restriction): Delicate cream, as even as possible, showing a distinct bloom on ears and back resulting in a powdered effect. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pink.
this is the cat that equals the cream burmese when a/a  and could not be shown

note again two para  above are trouble - this will confuse the judging , registration and public and disqualify the full expression cat from being shown  The colours must be differentiated by name these colours are very difficult to differentiat in the a/a cat.



Caramel (Full Expression Color):genetic A/-, b/b-, C/-, d/d - - -  i/ i-and most often SWB/--- Cool toned bluish fawn. With maturity a soft metallic sheen may be seen, especially on the head, up the hocks and around the paw pads. The depth and tone of caramel color may vary depending upon whether it is blue or lilac based. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Bluish fawn.

Caramel (Burmese Color Restriction):genetic A/-, b/b-, cb/cb,  d/d- - -  i/ i-and most often SWB/--- Cool toned pale fawn graduating to rich honey coloring on the chest and abdomen with lilac overtones. Color may be slightly darker on face, back and tail. With maturity a soft metallic sheen may be seen, especially on the head, up the hocks and around the paw pads. The depth and tone of caramel color may vary depending upon whether it is blue or lilac based. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pinkish fawn.

Technically these colours do not exist. What is happening is that the viewer is looking at a blue cat (C/- or cb/cb) that is agouti and golden giving the gun metal gray colour that is described. As such it is a pattern  The golden is seen through the blue. It is in essence a non true colour as in any colour generated from red yellow and blue  in your ink jet printer.  The problem with using this discriptor,  is that in this form,  it confuses the breeding process.  -
-It should not be considered as lilac based in our understanding - -  most lilac based goldens that we have seen are often confused with "champagnes" - -  reminder - - the colour is in the paw pads.
That is not to say the discriptor could not be used - - BUT the standard must clearly put forward the genetic  understanding we have outlined here
Additionally this would indicate a discriptor requiremment for the "Lilac golden'.


Apricot (Full Expression Color): Cool dusty cast over warm intense pinkish cream. With maturity a soft metallic sheen may be seen. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pink

Apricot (Burmese Color Restriction): Cool dusty cast over warm intense pinkish cream shading to pale tones on the body. With maturity a soft metallic sheen may be seen, especially on head, up the hocks and around the paw pads. Nose leather, eye-rims and paw pads: Pink

We have no understanding of what is being described here.
Apricot is usually the seen as the full expression red in our understanding  but see robinsens

SOLID COLOR CLASS

If colours are defined correctly all this is unnecessary

For all Asian solid colors it is very difficult to attain a consistent color through the length of the hair shaft and some paling to the roots can be allowed for as long as it is a slightly paler shade of the coat color.

Black: Even Black. Nose leather: solid black. Paw pads: solid black or very dark brown.

Black Tortie: Jet black with shades of red. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Appropriate to coat color and / or pink.

Brown:= our sable?? -  does not agree with comments above Rich, warm, seal brown. Nose leather: rich brown. Paw pads: brown.

Brown Tortie: Seal brown with shades of red. Nose leather and Paw pads: Seal brown, pink or both.

Blue: = our indigo  no comment for burmese blue  Medium to dark blue to the roots. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Solid blue.

Blue Tortie: Medium to dark blue with shades of cream. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Appropriate to coat color and ~ or pink.

Chocolate: = our new Brown no comment for bumese sepia champagne  Rich warm chestnut brown to the roots. No dark or cold tones. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Brown or pinkish brown.

Chocolate Tortie: Rich warm chestnut brown with shades of red. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Appropriate to coat color and / or pink.

Lilac:= our frost  not comment for sepia colour and no comment re taupe given they went for caramel and apricot.   Frosty grey with a distinct pinkish tone to the roots, giving an overall appearance of lilac. Color too blue or too fawn is undesirable. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Pinkish lilac.

Lilac Tortie: Frosty grey with a distinct pinkish cast giving an overall appearance of lilac, with shades of cream. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Appropriate to coat color and / or pink.

Red: Rich intense red, as even as possible. Slight tabby markings and some shading to paler roots may be evident and should not penalise an otherwise good cat. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Pink.

Cream: Medium cool toned cream, as even as possible. Slight tabby markings and some shading to paler roots may be evident and should not penalise an otherwise good cat. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Pink.

Caramel: Cool toned bluish fawn. With maturity a soft metallic sheen may be seen. The tone of caramel color may vary depending upon whether it is blue or lilac based. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Bluish fawn.

Caramel Tortie: Cool toned bluish fawn with shades of apricot. With maturity a soft metallic sheen may be seen, especially on forehead, up the hocks and around the paw pads. The tone and depth of caramel color may vary depending upon whether it is blue or lilac based. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Appropriate to coat color and / or pink.

Apricot: Cool dusty cast over warm intense pinkish cream. With maturity a soft metallic sheen may be seen. Slight tabby markings and some shading to paler roots may be evident and should not penalise an otherwise good cat. Nose Leather and Paw Pads: Pink.

these last 3 colours do not exist nor can they genetically.
Cats have ony 2 colours brown and black the dilutes of those are blue and lilac. The sex-linked override is  red  and the dilute is cream black and brown can not be differentiated in most cases when sex link red is delivered.

SMOKE COLOR CLASS

May be any color accepted in the Asian's Base Color. The Asian Smoke is a non-agouti cat and the undercoat of silver-white or near-white should be no less than one-third and no more than one-half of the total hair length in adults. When in repose the cat should have overall appearance of a Solid or Burmese colored cat, the silver undercoat showing through when the cat moves giving the "smoke" effect. Some faint ghost tabby markings may be evident on the body, especially in kittens, but distinct tabby markings in  adults are undesirable. There may be silvery  speckling  on the face, silvery frown marks on the forehead and silvery rings round the eyes.

 genetic a/a.....I/i....Wb/- and or swb/swb which along with C/- or cb/cb  delivers the varibility. We have not been able to identify a i/i smoke and that may be as it is unidentifiable.

CHINCHILLA (TIPPED) OR SHADED COLOR CLASS

The coat to be Chinchilla (Tipped) or Shaded in any color accepted in the Asian Base Colors. The undercoat may be Silver or Non-Silver (Standard). In Silvers the shading color may be reduced in intensity and the undercoat should be as in the equivalent Asian Silver Tabby. The silver base-color can take some time to develop in kittens and allowance should be made for a minimum amount of silver in kittens and adolescent cats. In Non-Silvers the Tipped or Shading color should be as the Asian Base Colors described above and the undercoat should be as in the equivalent Asian Standard Tabby.

In Silver Chinchilla (Tipped) or Shaded, tarnishing i.e. discoloration of the silver ground color is undesirable.

Pattern --The Chinchilla (Tipped) or Shaded Silvers may show wide variation in degree of Tipping or Shading, from light to heavy. All variations in the density of Tipping or Shading are equally acceptable the important consideration being that the Tipping or Shading is evenly distributed. Chinchilla (Tipped) or Shaded Silvers will have a mantle of color Tipping or Shading down from the sides, face and tail, from dark on the spine to lighter patterning on the chest, stomach and under the tail. A heavily Shaded Silver may show very little undercoat on the spine line. Where the Tipped is lightly colored giving a tipped effect, the pigment will only show at the extremities of the hairs and be evenly distributed. Tipping so slight as to be barely discernible is undesirable. The Chinchilla (Tipped) and Shaded Silver is an agouti cat and the tabby pattern, which may be Spotted, Classic, Mackerel or Ticked, may show clearly on the surface of the coat in kittens but should become less distinct as the lighter base color extends up the hair shaft with maturity. The more heavily Shaded adults may still show some superficial tabby pattern, especially on the back and sides. This pattern may be more noticeable in Standard varieties than in Silver varieties. Cats with classic pattern may appear darker because the pattern area is greater.

The legs, head and tail may show tabby markings of varying clarity depending upon the degree of Tipping or Shading and basic underlying tabby patterning. The denser concentration of color should extend from the feet up the back of the legs to the hock joint. Light spotting on the belly is permissible.

This is a mine field that the reader/cfa/judges need to clearly understand... colour (black and the recessive brown) are diluted by many other genes. Red is a less intensecolour and more affected by the inhibitor/silver gene  than black. Brown is inself weeker than black. Sepia is a colour reducer. Thus a black is reduced to brown (to the eye).
Question - -  can the sepia black be distingished from non sepia brown. 
"I" is also a reducer of colour.
Question  - - - what is the difference between a brown cat with wide band and a black cat with sepia. Not much but remember the paw pads.
The length of the hair also fools the eye.
A black cat with agouti, longhair,  Wide band,  and the recessive super wide band,  is a Chinchilla by definition in England. It is probable the need to hold the recessive that has pushed them into declaring it a separate breed.
A shorthair red, non adjouti, will appear tipped because of the weekness of the colour - -  and this is accentuated by sepia.
This chinchilla effect will not breed true with other colours and will cause much confusion.
It is our suggestion that the term is not used  --
 shaded is a general term  covers more possibilities, and raises less questions.



TABBY COLOR CLASS  this is a paturn not a colour and all cats are A/- agouti with red brick noses.


The tabby pattern, which may be Spotted, Classic, Mackerel or Ticked, is formed by markings of the solid pattern color on a background of agouti hairs. The pattern  colour only color in Standard Tabbies should be that of the equivalent colored Asian Solids and Torties or their Burmese Color Restriction counterparts. In Silver Tabbies the pattern color may lack warmth and this should not be penalized. The pattern color in Spotted, Classic and Mackerel Tabbies should match on head, body, legs and tail. There should be no speckling of agouti hairs in the markings and a pattern, which consists of dark agouti on a light agouti background is incorrect and must be penalized. In Ticked Tabbies the pattern color on head, legs and tail should match the ticking color on the body. Pedantic and functionally incorrect a tabby is and abby tabby only if it is not (ta/ta) can it be other

In Standard Tabbies the markings should be dense, as near as possible to the roots and in Silver Tabbies they should extend well down the hair. The marking should show good contrast with the ground color, but in dilute colors and Burmese restriction colors, the contrast between the markings and the ground color is less than that required in non-dilute or full expression colors. In Tortie Tabbies the distribution of Tortie markings is immaterial.

1. The Burmese Color Restriction Gene genetic C/- versue cbcbc has the effect of reducing the melanin in the hair shaft particularly close to the skin, thus color cannot be sound to the roots nor can the undercoat be as rich as in the equivalent full expression cat. However, in all Asian Tabbies of Burmese Color Restriction the markings should be as near to the roots as possible Not correct or possible given the statement above or a genetic understanding and show good contrast with the ground color. The ears and mask of Burmese color restriction cats may be slightly darker.

2. In Silver Tabbies tarnishing i.e. discoloration of the silver ground color is undesirable.

3. In full expression color Asian Tabbies the markings should show good contrast with the ground color. repeat of above noted information

Head Markings --On the forehead there should be an "M". In Ticked Tabby kittens there may be a skull-cap, which may clear to an "M" in adults. There should be an unbroken line running from the outer corner of each eye and penciling on the cheeks. The edges of the ears should be the same color as the markings with a central patch of ground color resembling a thumb-print. The Tabby has a tendency to white in the immediate area of the lips and lower jaw. It is a serious fault if this extends to the throat in Standard Tabbies.last two statements are true only in the golden cat  - -this information has been taken from other standatds and does on encompas the cb/cb cat   - - best left out

Leg Markings -The legs of the Ticked Tabby may or may not be barred. However, the legs of the Mackerel and Spotted should be barred and/or spotted. The legs of the Classic Tabby should be barred. In all patterns the darker pattern color should extend from the feet up the back of the leg to the hock joint.

Tail Markings - The markings on the tail of all Asian Tabbies may range from complete (all patterns) or broken rings (Ticked, Mackerel and Spotted pattern) to a continuation of the darker color on the spine line (Ticked pattern). The tail should have a solid tip of the darker color except in Red, Cream, Apricot and Tortie Tabbies where a light tip is permitted.

Spotted Tabby Pattern: The coat should have all markings clearly defined. The spots may vary in size but should be round and evenly distributed. The spots should not run together in any part of the coat. Lines should extend from the top of the head down the back of the neck, breaking into spots on the shoulder and along the spine. The legs should be barred and/or spotted. The denser concentration of color should extend from the feet up the back of the leg to the hock joint. On the neck and upper chest there will be necklaces, which may be broken, the more the better. The belly should be spotted. The tail should be marked with complete or broken rings.
-this information has been taken from other standards and does on encompas the cb/cb cat   - - best left out

Classic Tabby Pattern: The coat should have all markings clearly defined. The ground color and markings should be equally balanced overall. There should be a vertical line or lines running  over the back of the head and extending to the shoulder markings, which should be shaped like a butterfly seen from above. Both the upper and lower "wings" should be clearly defined in outline, with dots inside the outline. On the back there should be an unbroken line running down the spine from the butterfly to the tail, with a stripe on either side of this line running parallel to it. The stripes should be separated from it by stripes of ground color. On each flank there should be a large oyster or blotch surrounded by one or more unbroken rings. Both sides of the cat should have symmetrical identical markings. On the neck and upper chest there should be unbroken necklaces, the more the better. The belly may be spotted, blotched or barred. The tail should be banded.

Mackerel Tabby Pattern: The coat should have all markings clearly defined. There should be a narrow unbroken line running from the back of the head to the base of the tail, on either side of which should be a broken spine line from which narrow vertical lines run down the body. These lines should be as narrow and as numerous as possible and should be unbroken. On the neck and upper chest there should be necklaces, which may be broken, the more the better. The belly should be spotted or barred. The tail rings should be as narrow and numerous as possible, complete or broken.

Ticked Tabby Pattern: The coat should be evenly ticked with two or three bands of the pattern color extending well down each hair shaft. The darker color should be more apparent down the spine line, shading to the paler ground color on the belly and inside the legs. Any necklaces may be broken or unbroken. The belly may be spotted. The legs may be barred. The tail may be ringed with complete or broken rings or may have a continuation of the darker color of the spine line.



Nose Leather: As in the equivalent Solid, Tortie or Burmese Restriction color, or pink rimmed with the Solid, Tortie or Burmese Restriction color.
this is flat dead wrong

Eye Rims and Paw Pads: As in the equivalent Solid, Tortie or Burmese Restriction color.

The Tabby patterns will be less distinct on the semi-longhair coat.

Coat Length and Texture: Medium long except over the shoulders where a shorter length is permitted, fine and silky in texture, without a woolly undercoat. The coat should appear dense, but lie flat along the spine and display a glossy shine; the coat should lengthen down the body to form fringes or "frills" along the lower edges of the body and under-parts. The tail should be plume-like. The furnishings from inside the ears should form streamers and tutts at the tips of the ears are preferable. A ruff is desirable in the mature cat and, all other things being equal, preference should be given to the cat with a ruff and full breeches.  Asian Longhairs do not normally achieve full coat until mature (2 years plus) and allowance should be made for shorter coats and lack of ruff in kittens and adolescent cats.

 Allowance should also be made for toe tufts making paws seem larger than they really are. no - - this kind of excessive hair is sometimes seen in neutered cats

The coat lies flat along the body, but forms a ruff around the neck and tends to form fringes or frills along the lower body thereby disguising the underlying bone structure. By smoothing back the coat it is possible to study the lines of the body, which should be of slender, elegant and of medium to medium-large Foreign type exactly as per General Type for all Asian cats.

Genetic Brown is missing

Note the reader will understand given the genetics outlined on the genetic page that there are colours errors. Mathematically there are 16 colours. If  Black reds can not be differentiated from Brown reds (we agree with that) then there are 12 colours. If full expression reds also can not be differentiated then this number is down to 10. Brown is missing.
If the reds are to be differentiated then they would be Russet red, and it's dilute Apricot (or tangerene),  Red and it's dilute Cream. If not then Apricot should be removed.

As all variants below, fall from this colour understanding then the above noted errors are compounded.

TABBY PATTERNS
OVERVIEW
The tabby pattern is formed by markings of the solid pattern of colour on a background of agouti hairs. The pattern colour in standard tabbies should be that of the equivalent colour Burmilla solids and torties and their Burmese colour restriction counterparts. In silver tabbies the pattern colour may lack warmth (i.e., red or cream) and should not be penalized. The pattern colour in spotted, classic and mackerel tabbies should match on head, body, legs and tail. There should be no speckling of agouti hairs in the markings and the pattern, which consists of dark agouti on a light agouti background, must be penalized. On ticked tabbies the pattern colour on head, legs and tail should match the ticking colour on the body. In golden tabbies the markings should be dense, as near as possible to the roots and in silver tabbies they should extend well down the hairshaft. The markings should show good contrast with the ground colour, but in dilute colours the contrast between the markings and the ground colour is less than the required in non-dilute colours. In patched tabbies the distribution of tortie markings is immaterial.


CLASSIC TABBY Markings dense, clearly defined and broad legs barred with bracelets. Tail markings can range from complete or broken rings to a continuation of the darker colour of the spine line and ends with a dark tip (except in red, cream, apricot—where a light tip is permitted.). Necklaces will be broken, the more the better. Frown marks on forehead should form a letter'M'. Line runs back from outer comer of eye to form 'spectacles'. Swirls on cheeks. Vertical lines over back of head extend to shoulder markings which end in the shape of a butterfly. Spine markings consist of a vertical line down the spine from butterfly to tail with a vertical stripe paralleling it on each side. Large oval blotch on each side to be encircled by one or more rings. Side markings should be the same on both sides. Vest buttons on chest and stomach.

NOTE: Markings can vary considerably and still meet the standard. Such variations include the width of the spine lines; single or double 'butterfly' pattern; number of necklaces; complete circular markings of the 'bull's eye'; number of rings on tail.

OBJECTIONS: 81urred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail. Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discoloration in Silver tabbies

MACKEREL TABBY
Pattern conforms to the same specifications as the Classic Tabby except the design of the markings instead of swirls or circles; the body pattern has vertical bands of darker colour markings on the cat's sides. The 'butterfly' is delineated by thin lines instead of solid colouring. This pattern can have three distinct spinal lines but they are narrow and usually meld into each other. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.

OBJECTIONS: Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot—where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies

SPOTTED TABBY
Pattern conforms to the same specifications as the classic tabby pattern, except the body pattern is comprised of spots or dots rather than swirls and lines. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Spine lines may appear solid but preference is given to spots. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.

OBJECTIONS: Solid Mackerel markings or spots that run together. Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot—where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies

TICKED TABBY

Body hair to be ticked with two or three bands of colour with shades of the marking colour and ground colour. The pattern should be free of spots, stripes or blotches (except for darker dorsal shading). Lighter undersides may show buttons on chest and stomach. Face and tail must show distinct tabby markings. Legs may or may not be barred. Any necklaces may be broken or unbroken. Any necklaces may be broken or unbroken.

OBJECTIONS: Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot—where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies

PATCHED TABBY
All four tabby patterns permitted. Distribution of tortie markings is immaterial.

end of GCCF standard



For the reader:
What follows below is a breed standard discussion initiated by my email and the linked charts as an attachment . It would be my suggestion that in order to follow the discussion the  reader should probably print the charts "genetics and colour" and "genetics and pattern"  or otherwise have them available on their computer for reference. As there were many replies I will attempt to answer each one.  I have edited out the greeting and salutations comments (hope that is ok). If the answer is short I will answer within the text.

The answer is below the

Dear Felicity    CCA Burmilla Breed council secretary  - congratulations and ;-)).
Greetings to all.
I have undertaken a genetics review and have attached two  updated documents that are to be posted on the the horizons web site  <http://www.durham.igs.net/~kiddbatt/>
They reflect our understanding of the genetics to date.
I have included Elaine (standards) in this email so that she is aware of where we may be going. To Sumarize
1) Presently  CCA_Standard the genetic black cat (B/-, C/- D/-)  is called "Black"  That is most often not the case as the cat will often appear to have a brown tinge in sunlight. I therefor suggest we call the cat colour "Ebony" . Besides being more exotic, it more closely reflects the reality.
2) The standard presently has no discussion or place for the genetic brown (bb, C/- D/-). "Brown" is OK unless someone has an exotic name they would like.
3) The standard presently has no discussion or place for the  "dilute" of brown (bb, C/-, dd).  Stephens in her book "Legacy of the Cat" uses the term "Fawn"  and I would suggest we go with that.
The colours Caramel , Taupe , Apricot and  Cinnamon are in my view misnomers that should be avoided. They are combinations of multiple genetic colour and pattern traits and will cause continuous problems as noted in the attachments below.
If such a multiple genetics/ colour/ pattern terms are to be used it should be clearly agreed upon as to what that is in genetic terms.  Example: The colour Sable is a long standing term  and is a Black, Sepia cat  (B/-, cbcb).
Example  the pattern /colour?? Chinchilla has caused  problems.
 It is also worth considering the addition of the genetic code to the colour and pattern descriptions in the standard.
regards to you all,
ivan

I have a problem with the "Dilute of Brown" being called a Fawn in colour.  The reason being, is in an Abyssinian, Fawn was produced when Blue (Carrying Red) was bred to Red (Carrying Blue).  So, in my thoughts, we need to call it something totally different.

Also, I tend to like having Caramel, Apricot and Cinnamon, due to I can produce Caramel fairly easily with my breeding cats.  Apricot, was a bit harder to produce, but was able to produce that colour at least once. Cinnamon, well, that is a bit harder, due to you need to start out with a cat (probably an Aby) to breed that into the lines.  I don't know that much about Taupe, don't know if I've ever seen one.

Thank you Ivan for including me in this dialogue with the Burmilla Breed
Section Members.
-- I thought it might be helpful to provide some insight into how breed colours are used by judges which may effect the names the Burmilla breeders choose to identify colours.

For instance, the colour black is a shared colour for many breeds. The expected visual of the colour is to be a solid glistening black colour which is sound to the roots without white hairs or rusting or smoking. Even the Oriental Shorthair colour Ebony has the same expectations.  (FYI, at one point there was discussion to have the colour name Ebony changed to Black in an effort to simplify colour descriptions. The OSH breed section didn't want to lose their distinctive name which it is know as in most associations.)

So, saying the Burmilla Black  (if I am correctly understanding your example Ivan) has brownish tones makes me question whether the colour is a poor example (instead of a different colour).

The Burmilla designates 20 points for coat colour and pattern. This makes judging the breed difficult when so many of the exhibits have questionable coat colours. This is also a problem for the central office when it comes to registering kittens, because Burmilla genetics is complicated a checker board chart would be extremely useful.

Regardless of what colour names the Burmilla breeders decide upon, accurate descriptions for those colours is needed in order for the judges to compare the entry to the desired colour. It would be to your breed's advantage for your section to review the standard and colour descriptions.

Maybe what is thought as Black (Self or Solid) could be a Full Expression Brown instead of Black.  see comments on brown  I do know that some Blacks to have highlights of a Brownish Tone, but I believe that could be due to how much sunlight the Blacks get or if not, then it probably is a Full Expression. agreed

I really don't see why change the Colour of Caramel, due to it would have to be classed with the Lilacs or Blues and they would be considered a really poor quality of those 2 colours.  Same with Apricot, it would be classed in with the Creams and then it would be a really poor quality of that colour.  Now, Cinnamon or Fawn, can't really be classed in any of the current other colours, due to their Genetic make up and mostly goes with anything that might have been breed to an Aby.

Hi again

I agree with you Kim, if colours are visibly different (and genetically possible), they should not be grouped into the closest colour because they would be penalized as a poor example.  Using discriptive names from other breeds is also OK in order to differentiate them.  However the basic colours, unless there is a visible (not slightly visible) difference, is frustrating to the judges and makes registrations difficult (and probably costly if colour changes are being made after the fact).

My interest in this is purely from a judging point of view and the improvement of registration services at the CCA office.  While the breed section discusses the genetics of the colours . . . just keep in mind you are also part of a system that may not be able to accommodate adding genetic codes to colours for registration purposes.  However, if you would like to make suggestions as to how your needs could be better served, please let me know. . .changes can always be made.

I believe that we can simplify the Burmilla colours to remove some of the colours that just describe what we would class as a poor cream (apricot) or a poor blue (caramel) etc.
On the issue of blacks, I have had several solid blacks and there colour was solid without any brownish tint.  So the blacks with a brownish tint would be considered a poor quality black. agreed

Ivan, we run into a lot of confusion when we consider the genetic colour in respect to the visual colour.  As judges we have to judge their colour by what we see.  Colour registrations are also by phenotype not genotype, although they do try to verify that the colour is actually possible out of their two parents. agreed
 
Elaine - we were using the Persian colour chart as a reference but I agree we should work on a chart for the Burmilla.

I still stand behind, keeping the Caramel and Apricot as a colour, I don't think we need to keep Cinnamon or Fawn tho, unless someone brings in the colour from New Zealand or from Europe, who do allow for those colours.

I know that Ann and Ivan thought my Sekhmet is a Chocolate, but it isn't, I've had both Chocolate in Full Expression (Brighter) and in Burmese Colour Restriction (Lighter) and the way I've made my Caramels is breeding either a Blue or Lilac to a Chocolate.  When I had my cats tested for PKD with Leslie Lyons, she told me that my cats also tested for the Dilute Modifier gene which all were Positive for.

I completely understand the point of view of Miss Balmer. I can understand that a judge who has a cat to judge on his table has to judge the cat and doesn't have the details of the dam and sire genetic code. The judge can only trust his eyes to evaluate the colour of the cat that stands on the table.

The CCA recognizes over 200 colours for the Burmillas. In my humble opinion, efforts should be made to simplify this list. I have experienced first hand asking questions to a judge about the colour of Burmillas and more than once I have received the answer that they are not likely to challenge the colour the cat has been registered under. I don't think it's a lack of interest in their part as much as them being somewhat discouraged by the endless list of accepted colour. There are a only a handfull of judges who will actually challenge the colour. It happened to us. We went along with it but it gets frustrating to have to pay fees to change the registration and re-show the cat. agreed

In any cases, it's a tough task to refer to the standards of acceptable burmilla colours from other organization. Let me mention that in all cases, the silver white base is mandatory. It's not the case at the CCA. Moreover, let's not forget that in some cases ( in Australia, for example) the Chincilla persian has been introduced more than once early in the lines in the longhair burmilla programm which is unacceptable at the CCA.. The CCA is the only organization that will allow an eye colour other than green.  Most of the organizations will only allow a shaded or a ticked pattern ( in most cases only with a silver white base) to be shown and not self expression coloured cats. The GCCF is the organization that allows the most colours ( besides CCA, of course) and there are only 40 of them.

I am not in any way, shape or form trying to tell who is right and who is wrong. The only thing I want to convey is that the chart of acceptable colours at the CCA is getting to be something of a overly intricate maze. I sincerely appreciate the fact that the CCA has a wider range of acceptable colours than most of the other organizations but it doesn't mean that I don't believe we could simplify the colour chart.

In a perfect world, that chart should be simplified and this chart should come with a definition of each of the acceptable colours. I know it would be a huge task but I believe also that the burmilla breeders and the judges could work hand in hand in trying to redefine a simpler colour chart who would suit both the needs of the breeders who have to register their cats and the judges who have to judge them. agreed - - am trying

 I spoke with Jean who has attended all Burmilla cat shows in England.  She tells me these colours are all possible and beautiful.  In Europe the breed has been established a lot longer than here.  There are a large quantity of Burmilla/Tiffany/Asian/Bombay breeders.  These cats are all different colour catagories of what we call the Burmilla breed.  There are enough breeders that they can specialize in different colours.  If we take the Persian colours and add the Burmese colours and then try to calculate the possible combinations it is astronomical.  Also because of the unique properties of the Burmese coat and it's effects on colours we run into colours that are "full expression" or "Burmese restricted".  Which does not mean that it is a "bad" colour by our standards, just different from what we are used to.
 
Paw pad colour is supposed to be the main indicator of Burmilla colour.  I have also found that looking at the roof of the mouth can also help identify if a cat, usually a silvered tortie, is actually a tortie.
 
I agree the colours are many, but so are the Persian, Cornish Rex, and lots of other breeds.  The difference being that the Burmilla has a unique colour influence from the Burmese. agreed we are also slowly learning
 
Simplifying the colours may not be possible, however, we could probably produce a document of most "common" colours and patterns.  I am just not sure if that would make much difference.  We should probably revisit the colours descriptions and see if there is any way we can improve on their descriptions.  I was thinking that it might be worth getting in touch with some breeders in Europe to get colour photo's of the colours we are unfamiliar with.  
 
When Ann & Jean & I were working on submitting the colours to CCA, we already cut the number of colours in half because instead of using the terms "full expression" or "Burmese restriced" for each colour we gave a range in the colour to incorporate these two expressions of the colour into one colour.  For example a full expression sable  is black??? is actually a dark mahogany colour resembling a Havana Brown see below and they even have a lot of the physical characteristics of the Havana.  I don't believe we have actually shown one because the type do you mean colour? is not desirable.   The colours are possible but you may not see them shown because we haven't had enough people working with the Burmilla's to produce one of sufficient quality to show.

Yes, that is very true.
BTW, I noticed that someone mentioned the Tiffanie/Burmilla Longhair in Australia.  There are 2 different types in Australia, there is a small group of breeders (Waratah group) who have been doing Australian Tiffanies (aka AustTiffs), which if you look at the pedigree, they were breeding back constantly to the Persian.  The AustTiffs are not recognised in the other Organizations in Australia, due to a falling out of Waratah Club out of the main Organization and due to they will do whatever they please.  Unfortunately, some of the Breeders (some new and some not so new) in New Zealand, purchased cats from the Waratah bunch and didn't realize that they weren't true Longhaired Burmillas or Tiffanies and started to breed with them (which has turned into a mess).

The 2nd Group of breeders in Australia are breeding what is called Longhaired Burmillas, which is the same as what others in Europe are calling Tiffanies, same breeding program for each other.

In Australia, they do not allow for the Red or Cream gene to be added into their lines, which also means that they don't have the Torties either.  And they are only allowed to Register their Burmilla patterned cats for Show and anything that pops up which is a different pattern can be used in the Breeding Program, but otherwise, are considered pets.

Answer
There are multiple parts of this reply.
A) The rational of some of the changes to the standard  are listed below starting a short section of basic genetics.  Please note a genetic code for each classification in the standard is provided. The Standard is reordered so that each section builds on the information provided in the previous section . Thus the whole document is signifigantly reduced in size and information is not repeated.

 this section highlights and explains the major changes to the standard .
   
    Charts and checkerboards this section has external links to sites that explain some of the terms used
    Tortoishell
    Ebony vs "Black"
    Brown
    Fawn
    Caramel Apricot and Taupe
    Red/Cream
    Smokes
    Tabbies
    Shaded
    Tipped



 B) a review of the current standard  can be found on the above.   I have also provided a copy of that document broken down into a table that enables comment on individual paragraphs along with most of the changes incorporated into the final draft.

------------
Let me address your request for a "chart"/"checkerboard".

 I have developed one for a 6 gene variation, which you can view if you dare.  I produced it using a straight abcdef combination that does not reference any "genes" in particular.  It is a template and an "nerdy" academic exercise, but is how one determines what a cat (or any other animal) will produce.

While all genetic texts use these checkerboards, they generally serve no other purpose than to turn off all but the most ardent enthusiast.
 
The basic principle of single gene inheritance requires one only to look at each gene as a separate item.  Almost all genes are single/separate.  Two other important principles that need to be understood in relation to cats, are:

1) The  "Epistatics" which are genes that mask other genes ie. abby tabbies mask mackeral and classic tabbies so that an Abyssinian cat may well be a mackeral tabby and you can not see it and a Sable Burmese could be silver or golden based (I /- or ii) without the breeder or judge's  knowledge or ability to see it.

2)  The sex linking genes which are gene that do not have the normal "dual characteristic" or pairing (see below)  ie.  the reds and torties.  This sex linked red gene in cats also happens to be epistatic so that a Red (genetic orange [OO]) cat can be genetic black.

So here is a basic checkerboard of a breeding of two heterozygous agouti cats [A/a].  Normal cell reproduction (Mitosis) reproduces the cell exactly. Meiosis is the process that produces the egg and sperm and splits the "dual characteristic" into it's parts. Beside it is a checkerboard for the red  cat.
 
normal genetic  inheritance

What we have here is 3 of the offspring or 75% would be Agouti and 1 or 25% would be non agouti or "self".  Two would be homozygous (AA and aa) and two would be heterozygous (Aa).

Because the sperm and eggs are produced in very large numbers, the kittens could all be the same - -it is only when large numbers of offspring are produced that we are guaranteed to have the distributions as demonstrated in this chart. 

If we were to get a "self" kitten from two agouti adults then we would know that the parents both "carry" the recessive (a) gene.

The Tortoishell cats are included in the "Solids" colours section

Reason  - -because that is what they are. They are in fact two solid colours and females only.


The colour Black  has been replaced with the term Ebony

I agree with Elaine and Kathy when they say, a poor example as viewed,  should be judged as such.

Take a moment and look at Wikapedia on the Human eye.
While most of us understand the blue eye / brown eye human inheritance as simple dominance as in the Agouti example above there are often many factors that create subtle variations. So too with the black cat. One of the best examples of that can be seen at the zoo when one observes a Panther,  a non agouti variation of a Leopard. If you look at one, and the angle of the sun is correct you can actually see the spots, and that ability may well be variable dependent upon, the amount, type, and level of light and wheather the animal is heterozygous or homozygous (Aa or AA) among other things (coming up).

I am not advocating for acceptance of a "self" cat that has variation along the hair shaft such as would be the case for a smoke, or a sepia. 
I am advocating that; as we are working with complex gene pool, unlike many other breeds that have over time become refined i.e.. removed many heterozygous features; we do not limit ourselves excessively at this time. Therefore the standard should be written to allow some variation and eliminate the possibility of disqualification. Thus the choice of the term "Ebony" and desire for terminology (in the self cat standard) to state the uniformity along the hair shaft is "desirable".

Generally it has been our experience that "black" can be identified in all but the most tipped cases within 16 weeks.
The dilute of Ebony is Indigo and has been in use for some time.

Brown has been written into the standard.

The genetic recessive of Black ( written as B/ ) is Brown (bb) and there is a variation cinnamon (b1b1) that that is recessive to both B and b. Cinnamon is highly controversial in England and given that Kim agrees, I suggest we stay away from it as long as we can.
Cinnamon and the dilute Fawn are not used.
The brown cat  is as in the Havanna brown has been written into the standard. This variation is easly distinguishable from the sable and is a full expression colour version of Champagne.
This designation causes difficulty as the term Brown has been variously used by non North American jurisdictions to describe the champagne cat. This case best illustrates the need for genetic definition of cats as a means of translation of "Fancy " names.  Robinson's is universally accepted. We reject the term Chocolate used in Robinsons (p158) as it too has many various fancy uses. Brown is the genetic name.

Frost has been written into the standard

As Indigo is the dilute of Black,  Frost is the dilute of Brown. Robinsons use the term Lilac but that term is already in use. We have therefore gone with the term used in Stephens first edition page 12.

The terms Caramel,  and Apricot have been removed from the standard and are not used.

Copied below is a section of p 141 of Robinson's that explains the use and  derivation of the terms including taupe. Most readers would understand this as a discussion of the "powder coats"-  Caramel being the dark version of Blue, Taupe being the darker Lilac and Apricot being the darker version of Cream. Remember this  blue, lilac, and cream are full expression colours being our Indigo, Frost ( cream is undifferentiated).

rpbinsons p141 dm

I do not agree with this DM gene and have corresponded with Lorraine Shelton,  a Robinson's  author, who has professed skepticism of it.
I do not dispute the "existence"  of Caramel, Taupe and Apricot. Rather  we should understand these are the minor colour variations  seen (in the solid cats -most particularly, and not just,  the "dilutes") due to the underlying golden /silver variable that becomes more clearly visible in the tabby [agouti] cats. ( The Barrington gene variable has the same source.)
Caramel colouration is most easily remarked upon, but its recognition would then require identifiation of Taupe and Apricot and as these clearly problematical. I suggest we leave it alone.

The Red/ Cream  cat is unchanged.

As above Apricot is not used. There are many variations of the red cream that will provide subtle variations on the colour. As in the Foreign Burmese and the European Burmese these variations have not been differentiated.

The Smoke

I present a radical view of what a smoke is. Wideband genetics is introduced. While we may not be entirely correct in our understanding, there is no other clear understanding within the genetics world (as Gloria Stephens did agree). Our supposition will provide reasonable assurance of breeding outcomes.
All colours come as smokes. The variations possible are listed.

The Patterned cats  I.E. Tabbies
This section is largly unchanged. "Ticked" = tabby = agouti = narrow band.  I drop the term "Patched" in order to be consistant throughout the document. All the colours are represented in their new terms.  The genetic relationship of the various tabby types is explained. All colours come as tabbies. The variations possible are listed.

The Shaded cats

Wideband genetics is expanded upon. All colours are available. Subtle variations in colour and pattern are explained. The variations possible are listed and are similar to those above. The term tabby is not used.

The Tipped cats

The terms Cameo, Shell, and Chinchilla are dropped in the interest of simplicity. Wideband genetics is taken to the limit. All colours are available although difficult. Patterns are no longer always distinguishable and are dropped. The variations possible are listed.  The term tabby is not used.




Proposed revised appendix to Colour and Pattern posted April  '09

Preliminary

1) Genetics are shown in [brackets]

2) The naming convention:
A) Colour
B) Tortoishell, or go next
C) Silver, / Golden or go next
D) Smoke or go next
E) Shaded or Tipped (?/) or go next
F) (Ticked, Mackerel, Classic and (Spotted if applicable) Tabby or go next
G) Burmilla

3) "EBONY" replaces "Black” but the old term can be carried in brackets for clarification and Ebony is listed first based on the alphabetical term Black).

4) The term "TIPPED" replaces "Cameo" "Shell" or "Chinchilla"
 -As appropriate  -the old term can be carried in brackets for clarification. - Shell being for the orange cats and Chinchilla for Ebony and Indigo cats.

5) TORTOISHELL replaces  "Patched"; the old term can be carried in brackets for clarification. All Tortoishell cats are females.

6) The terms "Caramel", "Taupe", and "Apricot" are not differentiated at this time and could only be used in the golden cats.

7) Bracketed terms () are information only and not for judging or registration purposes. Brackets within a genetics string denote ‘epistatic” or masked characteristics that not able to be seen.
   

BURMILLA

The Burmese colour restriction gene [cbcb] has the effect of reducing the melanin in the hair shaft particularly close to the skin, thus the colour may not be sound to the root on the solid cat, and the cat may have a denser concentration of pigment on the mask and ears.

Coat Length:

The Burmilla can be both Long [l/l] and short hair [L/-]

 Eye Colour:

There is a connection between the melanin production, as regulated by the various recessive mutations of the full colour (C) gene and the colour deposited on the iris of the eye. Copper (eye) is the unrestricted/darkest form and varies through Burmese sepia -- cb/cb - - gold eyes and Siamese sepia -- cs/cs -- blue eyes.

The blue eye is the result of a lack of colour deposition on the front half only of the iris in both cats and humans. The silver/inhibitor [I] gene is responsible for producing a "shredded or weakened phaeomelanin” and thus green eyes. The resulting eye colour is “yellow through chartreuse (green preferred)” for all cats.

SMOKE  (non agouti, wide band cats)
[as above plus Wb/- , swb/swb and I/- or ii]

The Burmilla Smoke is a non agouti cat and varies from the solid cats only in one aspect in that it displays the wide band genetics. All colours defined in the solid section above, are available. The cat is named by colour and followed by the term SMOKE.

Some faint ghost marking may be evident on the body especially in kittens, but is undesirable in adults. There may be silver frown marks on the forehead and silver rings round the eyes, sometimes know as "Clown" markings.

The Agouti (ticked) cat is distinguishable by the brick nose whereas the non agouti cats have nose colour that matches paw pad colour. Thus any cat that has a brick nose can not be defined or shown as a SMOKE. The only exception is the genetic Orange (red cream) cat as the brick nose colour is largely non distinguishable from the red nose.

Wide banding is made up of two genes one dominant and one recessive, that work in both agouti and not agouti cats to vary the amount of colour [B/-] deposited on the hair shaft.

There are a number of factors that affect this colour deposition.  Black[B/-] is the "strongest" colour. Its' deposition on the hair shaft is reduced in its' recessive form [bb] (shape of colour dot), by the sepia genetics [cbcb] (temperature sensitivity), the dilution genetics [dd] (dot deposition pattern/clustering) and by the affect of the "silver inhibitor' gene  [I/-]  as against golden [ii] and whether the cat's normal colour production is amended by the sex linked orange override (eumelanin vs phaeomelanin, the latter being more sensitive to [I/-]).

Thus there can be both golden smokes and silver smokes As a result, the ground colour can be white [I/-] or pale cream [ii] and the hair shaft will have a varying percentage of colour pigmentation dependent upon whether one or both wideband genes are present and the accumulation of recessives mentioned above. The ideal SMOKE has usually been seen as clearly silver on the undercoat and having 50% of colour. This should no longer be the case.

It is not intended that golden smokes and silver smokes be differentiated at this time. But judges and breeders should be aware of the possibilities and recognize that the smoking base colour and amount can be highly variable. The cat should clearly be a "smoke". The golden smoke will additionally deliver a perceivable darker hue to the main colour particularly in the (weaker) colours rendering the blue cat to (caramel), lilac to (taupe) and cream to (apricot). These darker coats and conversely the "powder coats" (silver cats) are also not differentiated at this time.

NOTE:
The orange based cats (red and cream and tortie smokes) will not show much if any colouration due to the increased sensitivity of phaeomelanin (orange genetics) to silver [I/-]. Thus a sable tortie smoke may appear very uneven in colour with almost no red in sight, and a red or cream smoke may be almost all silver and appear Tipped. In fact it can often be impossible to differentiate a red tipped from a red smoke and may not be determined until subsequent breeding. While this would be of concern to the breeder it should not affect the judging process.

The following colours are available.

TABBY PATTERNS (agouti, narrow band cats)
[ A/- ,   I/- or i/i , -- , O/- or o/o, plus   wb/wb, Swb/- , Ta/-, if not then, Mc/- and Sp/- and the recessive of each ]

OVERVIEW

The tabby pattern is formed by markings of the solid pattern of colour on a background of agouti hairs. The pattern colour in standard tabbies should be that of the equivalent colour Burmilla solids and torties and their Burmese colour restriction counterparts. In silver tabbies the pattern colour may lack warmth (I.e., red or cream) and should not be penalized. The pattern colour in spotted, classic and mackerel tabbies should match on head, body, legs and tail. There should be no speckling of agouti hairs in the markings and the pattern. On ticked tabbies the pattern colour on head, legs and tail should match the ticking colour on the body.

In golden tabbies the markings should be dense, as near as possible to the roots and in silver tabbies they should extend well down the hairshaft. The markings should show good contrast with the ground colour, but in dilute colours the contrast between the markings and the ground colour is less than the required in non-dilute colours. In tortoishell tabbies the distribution of tortie markings is immaterial.
   
TICKED TABBY
[as above Plus   Ta/-]
The body hair is to be ticked with two or three bands of colour with shades of the marking colour and ground colour. The pattern should be free of spots, stripes or blotches (except for darker dorsal shading). Lighter undersides may show buttons on chest and stomach. The face and tail must show distinct tabby markings. Legs may or may not be barred. Any necklaces may be broken or unbroken.

OBJECTIONS:
Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot - where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tamishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies

NOTE:
The orange based silver cats (Red , Cream and Torties)  will show reduced colouration due to the increased sensitivity of phaeomelanin (orange genetics) to silver [I/-]. Thus a silver tortie may appear very uneven in colour with almost no red in sight, and a red or cream may be almost shaded. Conversely, it can often be impossible to differentiate a red ticked golden from a red solid and may not be determined until subsequent breeding. While this would be of concern to the breeder it should not affect the judging process.

NOTE:
Indications of a mask or colour [C/- versus cbcb] not sound to
the root (colour pointing /sepia) is not differentiated at this time and could be confused with silver versus golden[I/- versus ii].

MACKEREL TABBY
[as above but tata, Mc/-, spsp]
The body pattern conforms to the same specifications as the Classic Tabby except the design of the markings - instead of swirls or Circles, has vertical bands of darker colour markings on the cat's sides. This 'butterfly' is delineated by thin lines instead of solid colouring. This pattern can have three distinct spinal lines but they are narrow and usually meld into each other. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.

OBJECTIONS:
Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot-where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies    

CLASSIC TABBY
 [as above plus  - - tata, mcmc, spsp]
The markings are dense, clearly defined and broad. Legs barred with bracelets. Tail markings can range from complete or broken rings to a continuation of the darker colour of the spine line and ends with a dark tip (except in red, cream, apricot-where a light tip is permitted.). Necklaces will be broken, the more the better. Frown marks on forehead should form a letter 'M'.  The line runs back from outer comer of eye to form 'spectacles'. There are swirls on the cheeks. Vertical lines over back of the head extend to shoulder markings which end in the shape of a butterfly. Spine markings consist of a vertical line down the spine from butterfly to tail with a vertical stripe paralleling it on each side. A large oval blotch on each side is to be encircled by one or more rings. Side markings should be the same on both sides. There are vest buttons on chest and stomach.

NOTE:
Markings can vary considerably and still meet the standard. Such variations include the width of the spine lines; single or double 'butterfly' pattern; number of necklaces; complete circular markings of the 'bull's eye'; number of rings on tail.

OBJECTIONS:
Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail. licking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies.
   
SPOTTED TABBY
[as above plus  (Sp/-]

The spotted cat comes in two varieties, the spotted mackeral [Mc/-] as in the Ocicat (discontinuous vertical stripes) and the spotted classic [mcmc] as in the Bengal (rounded spots, more random pattern. Pattern conforms to the same specifications as the classic tabby pattern, except the body pattern is comprised of spots or dots rather than swirls and lines. It is not intended to differentiate at this time. Good contrast must exist between the ground colour and pattern. Spine lines may appear solid but preference is given to spots. Necklaces will be broken, the more the better.

OBJECTIONS:
Solid Mackerel markings or spots that run together. Blurred or indistinct markings. Light tip on end of tail (except in red, cream, apricot - where a light tip is permitted). Ticking in dark markings. White that extends to the throat. Tarnishing or discolouration in Silver tabbies

NOTE:
A 'marble' pattern is seen in heterozygous spotted classic cats [mcmc, Spsp].

SHADED  (agouti, wide band cats)
[ A/ ,  -  I/- or ii and Wb/-]

Burmillas will have shading on the face and a mantel of colour shading down from the spine to a lighter shade on the chest, stomach and under the tail. A shaded cat is an agouti cat in which between 25 and 75 % on the hair shaft is not marked and shows only the golden or silver.

As the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability shaded golden cats are usually at the lower end of the 25/75 spectrum.

The shaded cats have all the same colour and pattern classes as the tabby cat above with the shaded term added.  Because of the reduced pattern definition some pattern varieties become more difficult to define.

Again as the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability on the red/cream genetics (phaeomelanin cats) most of the shaded silver cats will appear almost tipped and pattern identification will be almost impossible. While this is for the breeder to know it should not affect the judging decisions.

TIPPED (Chinchilla)  (agouti, super wide band cats)
[ A/ ,  -  I/- or ii and WB/-, swb/swb]

Burmillas will have tipping on the face, with a light mantel of colour shading from the spine to the sides and tail. The pigment will only show at the extremities of the hairs and be evenly distributed in the non tortoiseshell variety. Tipping so slight as to be barely discernable is undesirable except in the "red/cream variety .

A tipped cat is an agouti cat  in which more than 75 % on the hair shaft is not marked and shows only the golden or silver.

As the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability tipped golden cats are usually at the lower end of the 75% "no colour" spectrum and may not be seen as clearly tipped. Flexibility is suggested. If fact a shaded golden is probable genetically [Wb, swbswb].

This variety has all the same colour and pattern classes as the ticked and shaded cat above with the "Tipped" term added. Because of the reduced pattern definition all varieties become impossible to define in the adult cat. They are therefore not differentiated for judging purposes.

Colour is also often severely reduced and the ability to differentiate between the "weaker" colours may be a problem particularly in the juvenile cats. Judges and breeders should make their best determination, at the time, based on their understanding of what they see. Breeders should be aware of the possibility of surprises in the breeding of such cats.

Again as the silver/inhibitor [I/-] gene has such a strong colour reducing capability on the red/cream genetics (phaeomelanin cats) most of these cats will have almost no colour.

The following colours and patterns are available.
Nose leather,
Paw Pad and
Eye Colour comments are identical to the solid colour cats.
The genetics are only placed on the first grouping – all others are similar except for colour.
