In the self cats [d/d]  this gene can be seen as a lighter colour and is called Caramel in blue tones, Taupe in lilac, and Apricot in cream tones.  They are sometimes talked of as the powder coats.  In  the dense [D/-] cats that are also  sepia [cbcb]  is is sometimes called the Berrington gene . It is most often identified in  b/b, cb/cb,  (champagne)cats. We suggest these terms not be used.
