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.
