Looking through my 2007 year's pictures to find three for the "best in 07"-thread I found this. Not one of my best, but I know what it is. Can you see?

Lovely fur, and the backlighting adds to the picture. Is it a cat? If so, it's really reaching and that makes it look more like a ferret or something like that. Neat picture, in any case.

Obviously it was a bit too easy. This cat, drinking from a zink tub, is one of a few long-haired cats born at our place some years ago. The strange thing was that two different she-cats, both normal short-haired,gave birth to mixed litter with short and long haired kittens. The yellow cat bore yellow kittens, and the black-and-white bore black-and-white kittens. But both had long-haired and normal short-haired offspring. Anyone can explaine that?

It might not be so simple, but it would seem that the genes for color expression and hair length are separate.Maybe the next appropriate queation would be "Who's the daddy?" :roll:You would also need to know what the parents of the two mother cats looked like.

"Father unknown" is noted in the files.:lol:

But the mother cats are the third and fourth generation after the old old grand mother, who moved in here at the same time as we did. At most they were nine, now they are six. We feed them and occasionally let them indoors, but throw them out again when they have stolen the thawing chickenfrom the kitchen table. Happens over and over again, you never learn.

We never say we have cats, we just say we share space with a cat clan, ruled by the oldest female cat in a strict matriar-cat-ic way.
