The presence of pigmentation in a cat’s epidermis determines a cat’s coloring. There are only two pigments in cats: black and red. Genetic factors and modifiers act on these pigments to result in other colors. The cat’s genetic make-up is determined by melanocytes, which create the patterns and colors of the cat’s hair, skin, and eyes.
Interestingly, female domestic felines frequently mate with more than one male during a heat cycle. Therefore, a litter of kittens usually is made up of a mix of breeds, such as a tabby, shorthair, longhair, and a tortie.
