just reading about some cats sand it says 'our cat carrys the so+so colour'

do you have a DNA test done to know this?

As i will be getting my Brown Rossette Bengal next year the first litter i have i would like there to be some Snows as i want to keep one for myself, But i would also like them to carry the Blue gene as i also want to keep a Blue! As i love the Blue & Snows..well and browns really!

so would my brown girl have to carry a certain colour? what about the Stud? so how do i find out if she does?

thanks!

I think you know what colours they carry by looking at what colours their family-line is and what coloured litters they've had? Also the texture of the coat and darkness/lightness of the coat can be an indicator, I believe??

i dont know! i know with dogs that say for example a german shepherd dog, you would have to mate a GSD that carries a blue gene, with a stud that carries a blue gene! one dog could be white, the other black!

but im pretty sure that they get them tested to know what they carry?!

You can also make glittered and snow affects using Paint Shop Pro 7 I believe and a easy tutorial online ;) That way you can customise it more :D
As for the colouring question, I'd google it as its what I did for the lines I will be breeding with my persians. Its amazing the work and time some people put into colour charts and you might find what you are looking for there :)
