The gene (grizzle gene) that creates the silver tipped black melanistic Chausie cat is yet to be indentified, as far as I am aware. I cannot find reference to it in Robinson’s Genetics for Cat Breeders and Veterinarians. The Chausie is a wildcat hybrid. The silver tipped coat is therefore, quite possibly, a combination of the ticked coat inherited from the Abyssinian (the domestic cat half of this wildcat hybrid) and the Melanistic Jungle Cat (see above), the wildcat half.

The Abyssinian cat has a ticked tabby pattern, a restricted form of the classic tabby coat. Black is a solid color caused by the non-agouti gene. Tammy Issac talks about this very interesting coat.
