Somali Colouration

Somalis are always ticked tabby, and come in fourteen different colours - four 'dominant': Usual (Black), Chocolate, Sorrel (Cinnamon) and Red; the 'dilutes' of these: Blue, Lilac, Fawn and Cream; and the Tortie versions of these (excluding Red and Cream). All colours can also come in Silver, making a total of twenty-eight different permutations.

Our Somali girl, Sonia, is a Usual and carries both dilute and sorrel, meaning that she could produce any of the possible Somali colours if mated to the right stud.
