Re: RE:HYB:Plicata Genetics Part 4

About "intensities" - I won't enter into the fray on that in irises, but in 
re to cats! Some 14 or so years ago, my Pretty-Girl aka as Minerva, was a 
very dark tortoiseshell.    Her coat was black with just flecks of gold 
throughout  -Her nose was half black/half cream , she had a light-color under 
her neck, black ears, sort of tannish tummy, black tail.  But as she has 
advanced in her "nine lives" instead of getting gray like people, she has 
become more orange -- all those flecks of gold in her coat have spread into 
dull gold/tannish ares/blotches,  gold on her chin, still black whiskers, but 
white eyelashes (yes, cats have eyelashes), her tail now shows tiger stripes 
by having lighter fur instead of all black., her ears are still black.  She's 
a very smart cat,  smarter than most dogs,has exhibited what would be equal 
to a Ph.D. in intelligence!  Don't know if the iris world can draw any 
conclusions from what has happened to an ageing  16+ old puss-kit.  Rosalie
