Background color is always a very white silver clean-tipping can be silver, chocolate, lilac and other colors, red or cream. This color comes from a particular gene that inhibits pigmentation hair on a portion of its length. Tapping’s intensity is less important than its homogeneity. A tipping that is considered too open, that does not create a net contrast. The cats often have a tabby drawing on their head, legs and the tail, derived from selected lines of wives Clarke. The drawings should not be tabby and body, but only on the extremities.
