Did you know that there is no such thing as a solid orange cat? Take a closer look at these photos of orange cats.
Solid-color cats have a genetic “aa” gene combination. The “Aa gene” controls whether or not a tabby pattern is expressed. The “dominant A” causes a tabby pattern, while the “recessive a” does not.
However, the O gene for orange color suppresses the “aa” gene, thus a true solid orange cat is not genetically possible.
