Brown Ticked Oriental Shorthair Kitten

“No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.” – Leo Dworken – he was an author. This is one of the great cat quotes. This photo was taken at an Oklahoma cat show 2009. Marty Young is the breeder. This was (now adult) a very sweet kitten. Helmi captured a great expression. There is a human element to it. Ticking is a form of cat hair appearance caused by the agouti gene. The Abyssinian is the flag bearer of the ticked coat.
