He looks like an adorable cat!

Ritz was one of four brothers and sisters; two were short haired domestic, two were long haired.  I wonder if they were fathered by different sperm donors.  Over the three year period I TNRd where they were found, I saw no long haired cats.

Yea, I have no idea on the father of these babies since mama was an outdoor only rescue. I'm curious if the boy and tortie girl will be long haired on not?

I think the tortie girl will turn out to be a longhair. Not so sure about the black boy--that could just be kitten fuzz.

Thanks, I've never had a long haired kitten, my ragdoll was an adult when we got her. Black boy has the same coat as the tortie, it's just really hard to photograph what with him being solid black. I've started noticing toe tufts on them both, their mom has toe tufts along with ear tufts and lynx tips and a fluffy tail but her coat was in really bad shape when she got here. She was really underweight and looked like she had blown her coat.

to me the tortie looks like a long hair and the black one may be as well. I'd like to see his tail to be sure.

BUT all of them are SOOOOO adorable!
