  2. All three of my cats have some degree of white fur, so this is interesting information. Especially the differing theories as to how the spotting gene works in distributing colour. Looking at my own cats, I’m guessing it’s possible that all three theories could be correct.

    Phoebe has grade 2 spotting. She’s a ginger tabby with a tiny locket of white on her chest and little tufts of white fur on some toes, which is only visible when her paws are viewed from the underside. Charley is a grade 5 ginger tabby and white, whereas Horace is a grade 7 white cat with a few black patches and a black tail.
