BREEDING THE COLORS: (Recreated from Van Cat Chat #10)

Below are all possible colors obtained from mating the different Turkish Van colors together (note: these are the colors in the van pattern, always on a white body). There are several caveats to remember in breeding Turkish Vans:

  • When breeding dense colors together (i.e. red, black) you will not get a dilute (cream, blue) unless both parents carry the dilute gene.
  • There cannot be a black/blue offspring unless one of the parents has black/blue in the pattern.
  • To have a tabbied offspring, only one parent needs to be tabbied.
  • A Solid to solid breeding will only produce solid offspring.
  • A majority of red and cream cats are tabbied.

 Abbreviations: Bl = black, Br= brown; TICA color definition are used. In CFA definition a torbie is called a patched tabby.
