Supervisor

It is very important that a kitten supervise my work at all times, or I might do ANYTHING.

Oddly enough, for being orange tabby, she seems to have points. Her ears, mask, base of tail and feet are all sort of smudged. I suspect there was a Siamese somewhere in the none-to-distant past.

Interesting! I have a tortie with black points, but I don't think I've ever seen points on an orange tabby.

The "genetics" and "colors/conformation" sections of the MessyBeast site are *fascinating* -- I'd be curious where your little orange critter falls on the genetic spectrum :)

(I actually found out some interesting things about my own cats that I hadn't known, even though I had a reasonable knowledge about cat coloring and how it's inherited. Apparently, Zuul isn't a silver tabby, she's a silver-blue!)

Oh, wow! Just bought a used copy -- sounds like a really entertaining book. Thanks for the recommendation!

(I had wondered for a moment if she was related to Stephen Jay Gould, one of my favorite authors -- but I'd think she would have at least an informal genetics background, were she his daughter!)

I wondered, too, but I think not. She writes well, like he does, though.
