Bicolor British Shorthairs

I may have mentioned that bicolors are white plus one color. Funny in a way because white is an amalgam of three primary colors: red, green and blue.

It is the piebald gene (white spotting gene) that produces the white areas. Here is a famous British Shorthair bicolor photographed by Helmi Flick. His name is IW/SGC HMS Prescott of Chaucer "Scottie" for short. He was TICA's 2008 Alter of the Year (British Shorthair).

The photograph was published in Scientific American. Well done Helmi.

The colored parts of the coat appear to be grey, a dilute black. But there is little hint of blue in the grey. Perhaps a breeder can help me out with that. He lives with Jeane Camarena and daughter.
