My cat came home from a late night stroll and a few months later we had these cuties!
They will be six weeks old this weekend. The only other cat we saw with our female was a solid black, same as her.
Can anyone help with identifying these colours? They are gorgeous! Thanks in advance. :)

They have what is called a 'fever' coat, mama was sick at some point in carrying them. They will be most likely black by the time they are 6 months old. The 'pointed' one (white one) is carrying the pointed gene, so parents must have some in their background. They are usually born pure white and develop the darker ears, legs, and tail. That one may keep it's blue eyes also. It also may get a little darker as it grows. Gorgeous kittens!

I agree! I was thinking they will end up as 3 black kittens and one colorpointed kitten (probably seal point).
