The Tortoiseshell








POINTS
HEAD 15

Small, broad across and between the eyes, rounded above,
below tapering towards the lips, nose rather long than short,
ears of medium size, narrow and rounded at the apex, broad at
the base.

EYES 10

Orange-yellow, clear, brilliant, large, full, round, and
lustrous.

FUR 10

Short, of even length, smooth, silky, and glossy.

COLOUR 25

A mixture of three colours--black, red, and yellow--each to
be distinct and clear of the other, with sharp edges, not one
colour running into the other, but in small irregular
patches, of great brilliancy of tint, the red and yellow to
preponderate over the black. If the colours are deep and
rich, and the variegation harmonious, the effect is very
fine. White is a disqualification.

FORM 15

Narrow, long, graceful in line, neck rather long and slender;
shoulders receding, well-sloped and deep; legs medium length,
not thick nor clumsy; feet round and small.

TAIL 10

Long, thick at the base, and narrowing towards the end,
carried low, with graceful curve, and well-marked with
alternate patches of black, red, and yellow.

SIZE AND CONDITION 15

Large, lithe, elegant in all its movements; hair smooth,
clean, bright, full of lustre, and lying close to the body,
all betokening full health and strength.
