First Lulu's litter:

Meet Figgy Pudding:


And here's Twinkle Light:



Now Othie's Girls: There's only two pics each for these little girls, because they're a wee bit younger and wigglier.

Here's Junior Mint:



And here's Candy Cane:

Lulu is seal point according to her papers...the babies look mink to me, but I am not an expert on color. It's hard to tell their coloring in the pics--Lulu's babies look sometimes black in the pics but look much lighter in person.

Mink is no color....it's about the eye color....
Figgy looks like a seal mink or point...Twinkle could be a seal tortie mink or point....but it's still hard to tell....do you see any trace of red on Twinkle ?
The Othie babes seem to be all tabby....Silver Bells maybe not...

I know that mink is eye color--Lulu's papers say she is sealpoint, but I think she is mink--her eyes aren't vivid blue. And Boo is also mink--so I think the babies are going to be mink...but just not sure. I think that Silver Bells is bicolor blue/white.
I thought Candy Cane is tortie, but maybe torbie. Junior mint looks like a chocolate torbie if there is such a thing. No, I don't think I see any red in Twinkle.

I keep checking your two threads over and over, it's addicting! They are all so beautiful :Adore: I even checked to see if my shelter has any newborn kittens needing foster homes, but not at this moment. I haven't had any foster kits since May, so we'll see, hopefully soon :Smile:

Just went back and reread my other post--it did sound like I was saying mink was a coat/skin color--I think both Figgy and Yule are seal and I'm thinking I don't know for sure what Twinkle is- seal and white?
My old house doesn't have an awful lot of natural light in the winters, so without flash is tough.

Aww they're all so beautiful. I just love the picture of Lulu kissing her baby on the top of the head. And wow, those markings on Junior Mint's head, they're so vivid! I want them all!

They are soooooooo cute!!! Cute I tell ya! Did I say their cute?? Oh my goodness...I couldn't imagine having to part with those cutie pies. Junior Mint is such a charmer..he is such a cutie.

Love the photos!!!!! Thanks for sharing!!
You should write into their contract that who ever purchases them has to join sphynxlair and shower us with photos. Especially Jr Mint so I can adore him from afar!

Oops...sorry about that :Smile:

If Lulu is mink it's even harder on the colors and points...with mink x mink you'll get 25% sepia kittens, 50% mink kittens and 25% point kittens :Dizzy: That's in theory...
All the Othie babies look tabby to me...exept Silver Bells maybe....so the tortie's are torbies then....the red and white boy is also a tabby...
Chocolate can only be if both parents carry a gene for chocolate ( watch out with that one...a lot of breeders say that their kids are choc...but really aren't ) :Smile:
The tabby patern does also work on the coatcolor of your babies...the tabby can make it a bit brownish/greyish...i hope you understand what i mean :Smile:
The combination of Boo with Othie gave you torties...so my guess is...that Boo is red or cream under his white coat...then he is also tabby...

Ow never mind Susi...i thought i misread your post ( i'm still a foreigner :LOL: )
Yep...i think that Figgy and Yule are seal....and Twinkle must be a seal and white....if you don't see any red on her....
Witch one of the 3 was the bit darker one when they where just born ? Because if Lulu is mink...then that darker one at birth could be a seal sepia kitten....

Is it unusual to have the papers use the wrong coloring? I always thought Lulu was sealpoint, but her eyes aren't real vivid blue----and don't seem to have that red glow in a flash picture that blue seem to always have....
I think Figgy was the darker one--but maybe it was Yule. Shoot, I can't remember--

Thanks for the help with the coloring Cristina....I'm sure you're also right about Sugar Plum--being a tabby as well. His little tail is barred and there might be faint little bars on his legs. I hadn't looked that close until you said he was tabby too. And you're also right about Junior Mint most likely not being chocolate--it probably is just a brown tinge from the tabby pattern--he just looks chocolately not meaning he is a real chocolate. Gosh, I have to watch my descriptions--I'm just describing at this point--especially with Lulu's babies as these were my first experiences with thermal kittens and I haven't done my homework on genetics and coloring like I should. I've mostly just used color predictors and my eyes up til this point. But it hasn't been hard before--Vans, Bicolors, Torties, Tabbies, Calicos aren't too bad, but when it comes to all the different combinations, I get worse at it. So, thanks for the help.

You are very welcome Susi....i like to talk color :BigSmile: So it is really no problem for me :Smile:

Sometimes it happens that the paperwork isn't right...just because the colors and points are pretty hard....but once you know it...it isn't that hard...for me it is a bit easier....because i had all my breeders DNA tested on color...points....tabby/non tabby...bloodtype....etc.etc. Because i like to know what to expect...and what not :Wink:
If i had an all white like your Boo...i would sure had him tested on color...i would be just to curious ( sp ? :Dizzy: ) what he was hidding under his white coat...lol :LOL:

If you take some pics of Lulu with the flash on....and there isn't red...then she isn't a point...then she is mink....i have 1 point...but i see the redness in his eye...just by looking at him...

To bad you can't remember Figgy or Yule....that one could be a seal sepia....oh well around 10 weeks old....the eyes start to change ( sp ? ) color...sepia kids are gonna have bright yellow eyes...so i guess you will see in time :Wink:

The breeder where i got my first sphynx ( my dearly beloved Gummi :Adore: ) ever from has told me...that all reds or creams are always tabby...and if you look close at Sugar...you see his tabby markings :Smile:
