Midweek Blues

Pansy Blue, one of our blue Burmese kittens. Genetically, blue is a dilution of black. Her mother was brown, her siblings chocolate or brown. No lilacs in this particular litter.
In different lights Pansy looked more silver than blue.
A blue background complemented her colour.
Here she is curled up with a chocolate friend. To us she was, quite correctly, 'blue' - but to the uninitiated she was grey!

  1. She is gorgeous! We used to have a blue kitten many years ago called Meep. She went to stay with my friend's mother and got lost in the woods near her house. I went to look for her but no luck. Graham's Mum thought she saw her a couple of years later around the neighbourhood. I hope so as it was very sad. Her mother was black-my cat Connie.

  4. She looks blue to me! What a pretty color and how special. Kind of like the blue tick in the dogs! Funny how I never though of blue on cats and dogs before this week.

  5. You can really see the blue in her coat when she's against a blue background: how adorable!

  6. I love your blue kitten, Pansey Blue. I didn't know these existed so you are educating me. Of course I don't know a lot of the cats. :)
    We are on a Princess Baltic Cruise and will be back in Copenhagen on July 11. That evening we will fly to London and stay there for daughter, Karen's, birthday on the 19th. And for granddaughter, KP's, first birthday on the 16th. Then I go back to Texas. Mrs. Jim will stay for a couple of more weeks.
    I'll think of you and Guildford.

    Sarah, it's always so sad when a cat disappears. Not knowing what happened is awful :-(

  16. You can see she does have a blue tint to her. It reminds me of our Camry color. It looks silver in the show room but when we brought it home, it was lavender. I liked it, but my son was appalled.
