I've had two Siamese mixes with blue eyes--Molly (who's with my ex and of whom I have no digital photos, alas) had the white chest and tabby stripes (and pink nose...), but had the dark ears of the Siamese.

Mason's got the tabby stripes but he's fairly buff, no white on him at all. You can see a photo of him in my first post on this thread.

Thank you I just love the breed - here's a head pic of Ruh: http://shahbazinanatolianshepherds.c...es/ruhlook.jpg
He's got the really sweet personality of one of his grandsires, yet has typical young male prankishness - as a pup, he pulled such stunts as turning on the water spigot, trying to surreptitiously stuff a dead mouse in my back pocket, & perching on the top rail of the 5 ft fence.
Are you a member of either ASD breed club? (ASDI or ASDCA)

And Zamber, that bird from my current layer flock is one of my "special blends"; I call them California Daisies, but they're nowhere near standardized yet - I crossed large Easter Egger over bantam Cochin frizzle & Silkie, then added a dash of Polish. They lay blue/green eggs & are real tame.

Can I play?

Here are several pix of my new babies, Merlin and Nimue, and one of ds squishing Merlin. Merlin is soooo patient.... I'm just glad I got nearly-grown cats!

Oh my goodness. I am now in complete chicken lust. Do you ever sell/ship day-olds? Are they naturally broody?

Here are my babies!!!

This is my Dane boy, Badger, who just turned 1 year old in December. He is pictured here with one puppy out of a litter of 6 that I had over the summer. He came into rescue at 8 weeks of age and I just couldn't let him leave me! Actually, he is my DH's fault but I didn't protest.

This is my Dane girl, Sara (the black one), pictured with one of my former foster babies.

And, last but not least, my Silky Terrier, Titan. He's the BOSS!!

Don't know if this is going to work but here I go again:

I must say, everyone here has some pretty cool looking pets!

Currently I have one kitty, Benjamin. He was adopted from the Humane Society 11 1/2 years ago, and they thought he was about 5 when I got him. He's a typical bg old cat. You can get an idea of his size on that bouncy seat! He likes to run away from my DD and also poop in DD's tent. grrrr.

And, because she always be in my heart, this is Lily. She passed away this past fall of pulmonary hypertension. I miss her so much. I can't wait until our lives are in a spot for a puppy, I will get another Portuguese Water Dog, like Lily. She loved to swim, fetch frisbees and eat popcorn

These have all been so fun to read!

This is my 4-legged crew:

Nicky, my 9yo male Rottie (he's not at all photogenic- always lays his ears back, flops on the floor and starts panting when he sees the camera) and "his" cat, Merlin (who is 7). Nicky loves raising kittens
http://img5.ranchoweb.com/images/bal...ckymerlin2.jpg

Oscar, Nicky's newest kitten He's 6mos now, and bigger, just can't find a recent picture. He's gorgeous. I"ve always wanted an orange tabby.

And he's not born yet, but our new baby:

No. Actually, our ASD is not papered or anything, he's a shelter rescue. Everyone thinks he's full ASD, but we have no proof of it.

It's because the forum uses BBCode, not HTML. You can google up cheatsheets/tutorials for BBCode, which is what I usually do after typing out oodles of HTML tags.

Zamber,

Here's what some people think about your Phantom's coloring:

http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=115686

The white spot on his face is most likely the culprit, though I think it's interesting that his odd eyed brother didn't have white on his face as well.

Frog, your beautiful guy Mason has his blue eyes because he's pointed (white/beige body with ears, nose, feet and tail displaying the cat's color). With the tabby markings you would call him either a tabby or a lynx point. I'm not sure why the pointed gene makes blue eyes though!

Everyone has such beautiful animals!

Thanks for updating me ! FWIW, other photos of him have reflected his eyes back to me as red. I think that one photo reflected yellow because his eyes were not looking directly into the camera.

Oh, man, a color genetics question and I almost missed it!

Phantom's a brown mackerel tabby with an unusual white splash--I would guess that he's just a normal s-spotted tabby where the spot happened to go up over his eyes (that can blue the eyes), but he could always be something new and different; after all, that's how most cat breeds got started, that somebody noticed something they liked in a domestic random-bred cat and decided to try to concentrate it.

I have also noticed that tabbies change their eye color over a lifetime; they tend to start amberish and will often end up blue-green. But Phantom's eyes are certainly a striking dilute of that.
