A better picture of the dad, he does have blue eyes so for sure a flame point. But since they are barn cats its really hard to say, she says he is the only unfixed male around though.

pics from today. She's getting some interesting coloring in coat, the stripes on her body are orange or brown (not black). Her face is getting dark and more grey. So maybe a blue torbie?

Thanks for the pictures of her undercoat! That's very helpful! From the undercoat pictures, she doesn't appear to be silver in color. Grayish beige undercoat like that is seen in many brown tabbies. Some people call it "mousy gray" or "mouse coat."

She doesn't appear to be dilute (blue). Blue cats cannot have any black stripes or black areas. A blue tabby would be significantly lighter in color, similar to her mother.

So I think it's most likely that rosegold rosegold 's guess is correct and Ceriah is going to turn out to be a "cold" torbie and white similar to Chilli.

In any case she is a gorgeous cat :)

She is actually very dark lol, in the light, it just bounces off the light parts of her coat :) Her coat looks she has lots of brown in it but I think it might be orange, as she has orange stripes on her front legs and that's what the stripes looks like on her body. Her tail has a mix of silver, grey, and black. Pics from today of her at over 4 months old, and I will keep updating this as she gets older to as it's pretty neat to see how kittens change as they age.:)

Updated pics of her at 4 months and 2 weeks old (20 weeks old). You can see how super light she is in the sunlight and how dark she is when its dark. My mom says I take way too many pictures.. I uh dont know what she's talking about LOL. Her stripes are brown except on her face

^.. these two were taken when it was getting darker and in shaded light. The one thats more orange is a different setting for my phone that shows colors more vividly but really shows that her brown nose is actually orange.. (its so confusing as it seems brown in other lighting lol)

It’s always so interesting to see how multi colored and patterned kittens turn out.

Ah yah I love my cats, they have really helped me alot. I have some severe health issues so i'm generally house bound alot and they really have helped keep me sane, especially with how crazy the world is right now lol.

Plus it's really cool to see how torbies can change. This was her at 8 weeks old :) She was super dark, almost black. Now she has a white/grey/black tail lol with tons of grey/orange.

A few weeks away from 7 months old and she's still stunning as ever. Not 100% sure her coloring still, its very unique.She's very dark but her tail is white on the bottom then black/orange on top and then turns into grey/brown. She has a long body, short legs, small head and short tail lol.

Ceriah is over 7 months old and very stunning. She hasnt changed much besides getting a bit more fluffy and uh "fluffy" lol. Her color still looks different depending on the lighting. She can look super grey, blacklike or super orange.

Ceriah at 8 months of age, she is so stunning and sooo dark.I think she is classified a brown torbie? But to me she's more black then brown lol. Her brown is more grey/brown and orangey. Her face is still just grey with a ton of orange in it (yes her nose is actually all orange not brown). She predominately has orange stripes to with cream orange and dark orange. She's a makeral though so its probably why she looks so black. Just an update on her color progress so far haha. She is sooo fluffy, her tail is all poof.

9 months old already. She's getting pretty floofy now lol. And you can really see the brown in her now. And she has a ton of black in her still. She for sure looks like an adult cat now lol. She lost a lot of the grey in her which I am sad about, but she is still a stunning girl so i'm ok with that haha especially as she is my lil lap kitten.
