Is there a specific breed I can call this little precious mix? The top of her ears are white with black patches.
Sometimes longhair carriers have a slightly fluffier or softer coat, but this is not always the case. I have had longhair carriers with a short hard coat. I've also had homozygous shorthair cats with a fluffy "longhair carrier" type of coat. Some breeders will tell you that they can always tell without a genetic test... but that's not reliable, so if you don't know for sure, it's best to actually do the test. Just for your future referenceSo the Oriental Shorthair breeder I'm getting my foundation cats from claims longhair carriers will ever-so-slightly exhibit the trait. In other words, longhair is not fully recessive.
