Birman is an fantastic cat to breed, it comes in several color variations. They are both like and different all together. Varies in coat, size and color. This is actually very interesting. In a previous issue of the NRR Aristokatt (magazine), it was written about MyCatDNA. A DNA-test that could not only tell about any illness, but also the breeding material.
The test was performed by MyCatDNA in Finland. Vetrinær Siw Røeggen Lødemel took the spit samples here at Ørsta Volda Dyreklinkk. Together with NO*Ped Alba we got tested three of our cats. We want to see how this test worked.
To get all the litters that both I and Siw have had, we tested NO*Condotti's Athena - SBI b 21, CH NO*Ped Alba Winter Princess (Eloise) - SBI n and CH Cinamon Boy of Ontario (Koda) - SBI b.
Included in the test is NL Of Jekima's Lord Oberon - SBI b, CH NO*Ped Alba diCondotti - SBI n 21, NO*Ped Alba Amora - SBI n 21, CH (N) My Beautiful Reward (Kitzy) - SBI n 21, CH Shapur Cassanova - SBI n 21, IC S*Ziblora's Ozzie-Zaian - SBI b and GIC NO*Citrus Sweet Fairytale and their lines.
Koda we got to see through Athena. But we was very interesting to see what lies in his coat and the color, so he was tested.
diCondotti has the same parents as Amora. We see the result through Athena. Lord Oberon we get through Winter Princess.
