Champagne hooded with black eyes

Post by Rhian33 » Tue Sep 08, 2015 1:08 pm

Can anyone tell me what appears to be a champagne hooded but with black/very dark ruby eyes could be please? We have one of these at wood green atm and I want to get her variety right before outing them on the rehoming board. At first I thought she could be a marked Himalayan but has no points.

A buff who is a bit off in terms of body colour? The tone can vary quite a lot depending on actual genetic makeup.

Ah, good point Beri. I have a buff here who is rather pale and she is kinda similar. Much darker eyes though which is why I didn't plump for buff.
