What is a Trait :  Stray Cats have 9 possible Traits


PELT    -    EYE COLOR    -     EYE SHAPE    -    EYE PUPIL    -    EARS    -   TAIL    -    SHADE    -    BODY   -   WHISKERS


Anything ‘STANDARD’ or ‘CLASSIC’ is NOT a trait, however keep reading….

With Pelts, Classic may or may not be a trait.  You need to look at the specific breed page to confirm, but for the most part, it is not a trait,

unless it is on a Faboo breed.   ALL Faboos Pelts are considered a trait.


Pelts:   There are several base colors in many breeds that are considered ‘standards’ or ‘starter colors’, therefore not a trait.  

             See individual list in breeds under Pelts.     


In general, not-trait pelts are:   Chocolate, Light Brown, Brown, Tawny, Seal, Blue/Red, Brown/Red, Red/Chocolate, Red/Black, Chocolate/White


Eye Colors:   Standard Starters (non-trait) are:   Sage, Canary, Chocolate, Forest, Sunflower, Cobalt, Gold, Amber


Eye Shape:   “Almond’ is considered a standard, therefore not a trait


Pupils:   ‘Round and Slit’ are considered standards, and are therefore not traits.


Shade:   ‘Classic’ is a standard, and therefore not a trait.


Body / Ears / Tails:   Any ‘Standard’ is not a trait.


Whiskers:   Standard is not a trait.  (As this trait was introduced in December 2023, older cats will not show this trait.  They only have 8 possible

                   traits, and will not have the DNA for the new 9th whiskers trait.  Their whiskers just appear as standard.
