Four years ago, my friend Heidrun Zeh, with the cattery name of IZ MISINZA SIBERIAN CATS, brought a blue mac tabby to mate with my sire, Joschka, a red tabby w/w, bi-colour, as she wanted a nice tortie/torbie to keep for breeding. Well, she got a lovely torbie but SHE turned out to be a HE!! Yes, Heidrun got a lovely torbie MALE.
It took 4 years to find out if this cat was potent (99% tortie males are sterile) Anyway, to our delight, Tschudo (Wonder in Russian) not only brought a healthy litter of 5 but in this litter is a TORBIE MALE!!!!
As I have been in touch with researchers and have told them about this, there was much excitement because, as far as anyone knows, this is a one off thing to happen, a TORBIE MALE to bring a TORBIE SON. What makes this even more rare and interesting, ALL the cats involved with the matings are of different lines.
With the exception of Joschka, there are NO reds in these lines, all cats are either blacks or blues.
Mother: Helena, Blue mac
Father: Joschka, red, classic, w/w, bi-colour
Father: Tschudo, black torbie, bi-colour
Mother: Raisa, black mac w/w.
The kittens are black classic´s and macs and the only torbie is a male, w/w, bi-colour.
