    Thought someone here might be able to clarify.

    I have a Blue Slate Tom (pretty sure he is a Splash - gray with black spots), a Splash Female, and a Blue female (very light, no spots). According to what I read online I should expect, Splash babies (check), Blue babies (check) and Black babies (check).

    But...we also have a white baby, ok not a baby anymore, about 9mths old, a Jake.

    Anyone else get white babies from Blue Slate parents? Nope, tHANKsgiving [​IMG] is not an albino.


    PS My Tom is pictured in my avatar.
