Bes Sekhmet

photos Sept 18 08 on a visit for breeding with  Silver Phoenix
as of march 09  Sekhmet has moved to  Fairisle cattery
She is a Lilac Tipped Golden Burmilla female  -a colour that some Fancies refer to as Caramel.

We have presented a number of photos as this colour is often difficult to understand and see. The very fact that the predominant colour to the viewers eye is the golden  is what leads us to the tipping designation.

The photos are untouched other that to reduce them in dimension and DPI for presentation and ease of loading. If any reader should wish a more complete and larger photo we can present that on request.

She is only the second cat  of this colour we have noted and been able to photograph. Horizons Bella Donna is  of similar in colour to the eye but is a tortie and this is very confusing to the judges. It is her mother Lavina who is identical to Sekhmet.

Sekhmet is the daughter of Horizons Romulus (see Lavina link), (brother to Adonis), and a Lilac European Burmese female.

genetic code proposed

A/a, b/b, cb/cb, d/d,  i/i,  L/?,  o/o,  Ta/  ,Wb/wb,  swb/swb

bred to Phoenix
A/a, B/B, cbcb, D/d, I/I,  L/?  Ox Ta/ , Wb /wb,  swb?  - - (as of dec 28/08  Swb/- see note Below)
as of jan 17'09 we have amended this colour profile to  for reasons noted in Silver Phoenix's file
A/a, B/B, C/cb, D/d, I/I,  L/?  Ox Ta/ , Wb /wb,  swb? and noted changes below in red

the prediction   - -kittens should be
25% self or  non agouti  (see below)
all B/b  genetic black
50% C/cb  full expression -- -----50% pointed ie black/ebony vs sable,   brown/havanna vs champagne ,  indigo vs blue,
50% dilute dd ----------------ie  blue
all  I/i   ----------------------- silver
Unlikly any long hair- - - shorthair
-----------all females tortie  all males non red
all TaTa ----------------------abbytabby
at least 50% wide band----- shaded 
at least 50%  swb ---------------tipped------
------------thus non agouti (25%)  will probably  all be smokes
as of jan 17'09 we have amended this colour profile shown in red

We would have thought to see more tipping (swb/swb). As the females are tortie and red is a 'weeker colour' they really do not count in this consideration. Thus the best conclusion is that Phoenix is not tipped  and is Swb /-.

a Sable Tortie Smoke shorthair female

photo Sept 18 08

 on a visit to the cattery for breeding with Findus

The reader will note that it is almost impossible to see any red (tortie) . This is a result , and a great illustration, of the colour reduction capability of the inhibitor (I/-silver) gene.

genetic proposed

aa, B/ cdcd, D/ , I/i,  L/l possible. O/o  Ta/Ta,  Wb/wb, swbswb suspected

bred to Findus
A/a, B/b. cb/cb D/D. I/i. L/?. o/x. Ta/Ta - Wb/wb- and swb/swb.

possible outcome

50% agouit 50% non
posible 25% genetic brown    unlikely  
all cbcb  thus all probable -------sable
all  not dilute ------------------------sable
 ---------------------25%   golden
minor possibility of long hair   unlikely
50% males  red based  50% females tortie
all TaTa  - - abbytabby
25%  narrow Band    - - of the non agouti 75% will be smokes
I think all wide band will be tipped thus 75% tipped   - of the agouti 75%  will be tipped ie 2 of 6

Burmilla kittens born 11 May 08 to Bes Lilac Sweetheart of Horizons "Sweety"  lilac European Burmese X Silver Phoenix (Red tipped silver) Burmilla
  2 blue  shaded tortie females 1   sable self tortie
2 sable  shaded males, 1 Blue shaded male
The keeper in the litter is Hector the "so called" sable shaded male and that would be him top left  in the first photo and bottom left in the second.

This is interesting the kittens are clearly tabbies - agouti and silver as well. Therefore Phoenix is agouti ( a tabby)
It is impossible to tell by looking at Phoenix , his mother Medusa, or both her parents Aurora or (Far) Horizon
We know Far was Agouti therefor Medusa had to be Agouti not smoke as identified.
he is genetically

A/a  due sable tortie kitten
B/- as there is a sable kitten probably BB
cbcb as no kittens are C
D/ as  at least 1 kitten is sable  therefor he is red not cream and some are blue  thus D/d
I/  as kitten is I and probably I/I
Ox as obvious
Wb /wb as one kitten is not smoke ?? at this time
swb unknown
A/a, B/B, cbcb, D/d, I/I, Ox Wb /wb,  swb?

As of jan 17'09 we have determned that as Hector (Phoenix's kitten) is a black cat based on an examination of paw pad colour. (See below)
Thus our comment  " cbcb as no kittens are C"  is incorrect.
therefore his genetic profile is
A/a, B/B, C/cb, D/d, I/I, Ox Wb /wb,  swb?
as he did produce a sable tortie we have him as C/cb this amends our Sekmet predictions
Phoenix is a full expression red and his mother Medusa had to be full expression red

Manillas Findus of Horizons
Findus(fin- -dus)comes to us from Maiken Mortensen of Manillas in Denmark via our friend Annemette Jørgensen.
He is a Sable Shaded Silver short hair Burmilla male dob 24 Oct 2005.
His pedigree is posted.
 The reader will note there are no Burmese and no repeats in the 5 generation pedigree, we are very pleased.
Thank you all.

He is tipped
We see the basic  gene profile   as
A/. B/. cb/cb D/. I/. L/. o/x. Ta/ - Wb/- and swb/swb.
We see this as our opportunity to prove the swb gene conjecture.
Genetic resolution

A/a   has produced non agouti kittens
B/b  has produced genetic brown
D/D  no dilutes produced with lavina
I/i  golden produced
L/ ? no long hair produced does appear to have some of the 4 long hair genes
Probable L/L no lh from Olympia
Ta/Ta nothing produced otherwise
Wb/wb has produced a self


we  make it so
A/a, B/b. cb/cb D/D. I/i. L/?. o/x. Ta/Ta - Wb/wb- and swb/swb.
