How to read a pedigree

How to read a pedigree

First of all, look at the hat, which emblem is there: WCF (World Cats Federation), RUI, FIFe, WCF, TICA, CFA or the name of an independent club or cattery? It should be borne in mind that the rules and standards of world systems are not obligatory for an independent club (nursery). Therefore, it is not always possible to understand what exactly the pedigrees issued by such clubs are. If the pedigree is issued by a recognized organization, then it is preferable that it be written in English and Russian. Her number must match the one indicated in the studbook of the club and / or association.

Registration ……… serial number assigned in the club.
Nickname ……… name of the cattery and proper name of the kitten Sweet Candy (name).
The “SPH” breed indicates that it is a Sphynx. If “DRX” is found it means that Devon Rex took part in mating. Such mating was allowed by the World Cat Federation until 09.2006, in order to add new blood to Canada due to closely related breeding. Now the number of Canadians is sufficient and an individual is recognized as purebred, which is Canada in the 4th generation.

There are a huge number of colors:
The letters n, a, b are the color code in the pedigree.

Solid colors:

n – black. The skin of genetically black sphinxes looks like slate gray. The paw pads are black or dark brown. The nose is black.

a – blue (is lightened black). Blue sphinxes have an even light blue color with a silvery sheen. The paw pads are gray or light gray. The nose is slate gray.

b – chocolate. Sphynx skin of this color has shades from dark chocolate to milk-chocolate. Light brown to pink pads. The nose matches the color.

c – lilac (is a weakened chocolate). Skin color is a combination of cold silver with a pink tint. Paw pads and nose are lilac pink or lavender.

d – red. Skin tones from bright red to pink. Pads and nose from brick red to deep pink.

e – cream (is weakened red). Shades from pink to pale pink (pale pink, almost white). The pads and nose are pink.

w – white. Nose, eyelids, paw pads – pale pink.

Bicolor colors can have cats and cats – any of the listed colors (solid, tabby, tortie) with white. The colored part has clear boundaries from white and is not less than 1/3 and not more than 1/2 of the white color. One ear must be colored, preferably a large colored spot on the head. The tail is colored, but may have a white tip.

Harlequin. Intermediate color of sphinxes between bicolor and van. On the head, one spot is enough, which captures the ear. Several spots on the body, painted tail, spots on the legs are allowed. The nasal speculum and paw pads are pink.

Wang. The Sphinx is almost white, the tail is colored, the spot on the head is captivating the ears. No more than 3 small spots on the body are allowed. The nasal speculum and paw pads are pink.

Color – point (Siamese). All kittens of color – point are born white, but after a few days the tip of the nose, edges of the ears, legs, tail are colored. This color has several options:

1. Cream point. A very rare color for sphinxes. The body is light cream to white, the ears and tail are cream. The nose and paw pads are pink. Blue eyes.

2. Seal point. Kittens of this color have a light body and a black-brown nose, legs, ears and tail. Adult Sphynxes of power point color are completely darkened, with the back being darker in color. Blue eyes.

3. Chocolate point. Lighter in color than seal point. The body of an adult Sphynx of this color has a beautiful golden brownish tint. Blue eyes.

4. Tabby point. The color differs in color: seal – tabby – point, blue – tabby – point, chocolate – tabby – point, etc. The body of the sphinx of this color is light, the sphinxes have stripes on the face, paws and tail. The nasal speculum is pink with dark edging.

Only female cats can have tortoiseshell colors. A cat can also have a tortoiseshell color, but this is a genetic mutation and such a cat is sterile and cannot reproduce offspring, because This is a “mistake of nature.” A cat has a sex set – “XX”, a cat – “XY”. When the sex is conceived, the cat has one more X chromosome left and the cat has “XXY”. But such a cat can live life happily as a pet for a long time.

f – Black turtle. Black and red spots all over the body (including the head and legs).

g – blue cream. The color is obtained from an uneven mixture of cream color with blue (gray) color.

J – purple turtle. The color is obtained from an uneven mixture of cream color with lilac color.

h – chocolate turtle. Red and chocolate spots are arranged in the most bizarre way.


  • Встречаются скрытые черепахи. Кошка допустим красного окраса, но при внимательном рассмотрение обнаружили всего на одной из лапок одна подушечка темного цвета и 2 волоска черных на кончике хвоста. Следовательно, это котеечка в разведении будет давать все 16 окрасов, что и ее собратья с ярко выраженным черепаховым окрасом.

Читаем цифры:

  • 01 – ван.

  • 02 – арлекин.

  • 03 – биколор.

  • 09 – пятнистость.

  • 21 – табби (полосатый или пятнисто-полосатый окрас), шея, подгрудок, животик и внутренние стороны лап светлее основного оттенка окраса, и имеют желтоватый отлив. Зеркальце носа розовое с темной окантовкой. Окрас различается по цвету: черный табби, голубой табби, красный табби и т.

  • 23 – макрель (тигровый). Полоски располагаются по всему корпусу.

  • 24 – спотет (разновидность 21). Короткие полоски ввиде пятнышек по корпусу животного.

  • 32 – тонкийский окрас. Менее заметна, чем у поинтов, граница окраса корпуса и выступающих частей тела: хвост, уши… Глаза минковые.

  • 33 – колорный (сиамский) окрас. Лапки, нос, ушки, мордочка и хвост окрашены очень ярко по сравнению с корпусом. Глаза голубого цвета с разной интенсивностью прокраса.

Цвет глаз обозначается только у белых животных:

  • 61 – голубые.

  • 62 – оранжевые.

  • 63 – разноглазные.

  • 64 – зеленые.

И так суммировав все:

  • SPH f 21 03- Сфинкс черепаховая таббированная на белом.
