Black Blue Gray Red Or Any Self Colour Long-haired Cats





POINTS

HEAD 10



Round, and broad across and between the eyes, of medium size;

nose rather short and dark at tip, excepting in the red, when

it should be pink; ears ordinary size, but looking small,

being surrounded with long hair, which should also be long on

the forehead and lips.



EYES 10



For black, orange; orange-yellow for blue; deep yellow for

gray; and gold, tinged with green, for red; large, round, or

almond-shaped, full and very bright.



RUFF OR FRILL 15



Large, very long, flowing, and lion-like, extending over the

shoulders, and covering the neck and chest thickly.



FUR 15



Very long everywhere; mostly so along the back, sides, legs,

and feet, making tufts between the toes, and points at the

apex of the ears.



QUALITY OF FUR 10



Fine, silky, and very soft in the Persian, with slightly

woolly texture in the Angora, and still more so in the

Russian.



TAIL 10



In the Persian the hair long and silky throughout, but

somewhat longer at the base; Angora like the brush of a fox,

but longer in the hair; Russian equally long in hair but more

full at the end, tail shorter, rather blunt, like a tassel.



SIZE, SHAPE, AND CONDITION 10



Large, small in bone, looking larger than it really is on

account of the length of the hair; body long, legs short;

tail carried low, not over the back, which is a fault; fur

clean and glossy, even, smooth, and flakey, which gives an

appearance of quality.



COLOUR 20



Black, dense, bright brown-black, with purple gloss; blue, a

bright, rich, even dark colour, or lighter, but even in tint;

gray, a bright, light, even colour; red, a brilliant, sandy,

or yellowish-red colour.
