This particular girl, Synergy Suntali, born November 6, 2001, is shown here with a regular ebony ticked tabby kitten(a.k.a. brown ticked tabby or black ticked tabby, depending on registering body). Note the difference in color between the two. Picture taken Feb. 23, 2002. Suntali's tail tip, eye, and nose liner, and paw pads are all black, but only the tips of other hairs on her body are black. At this point she is too young and her coat too short to determine how good her color will be when she is grown, but at this age she is the most obviously golden Oriental I have had. These pictures were taken with a flash, which washes the color out to some extent, but I think you can get the idea!
The little boy at the
right of the middle picture and lrft on bottom is also heterozygous "ticked"
pattern, not homozygous like Suntali. You can tell this by the presence
of some leg and tail striping, though it is somewhat diminished by selection
on my part. In spite of that there is a clear difference in the amount
of black on the two kittens.
