Oriental Bicolour Group - Supporting & Promoting Oriental Bicolour Cats in the UK
 
GCCF STANDARD OF POINTS FOR THE ORIENTAL BICOLOUR (48, 49)
General Type Standard
 
The Oriental Bicolour should be a beautifully balanced animal with head and ears carried on a slender neck and with a long svelte body supported on fine legs and feet, with a slender, whipped tail, free from abnormalities. The body, legs, feet, head and tail should all be in proportion, giving a well-balanced appearance. The expression should be alert and intelligent. The cat should be in excellent physical condition.
 
Head & Neck - Head long and well proportioned with width between the ears, narrowing in perfectly straight lines to a fine muzzle and forming a balanced triangle with no break or pinch at the whiskers. The head and profile should be wedge shaped, neither round nor pointed, avoiding exaggerated type. In profile the nose should be straight, free from any stop or dip, and the chin should be strong with a level bite. The tip of the chin should line up with the tip of the nose in the same vertical plane. The neck should be long and slender.
 
Ears - Large, pricked and wide at the base, without exaggeration, with their setting continuing the lines of the wedge.  Cats should be penalised equally for ears which are set too high or too low, distorting the balanced triangular effect.
 
Eyes - Oriental in shape and slanting towards the nose with good width between. No tendency to squint. They should not be deep-set. The haw should not cover more than the corner of the eye.
 
Eye Colour - In full coloured Bicolours the eyes may be green, blue, or one green and one blue, with no flecks of contrasting colour. The green should be as clear, bright and vivid as possible; an amber cast to the green is not acceptable in any colour. The blue should be a definite clear, bright, vivid blue, the deeper the better, neither dull nor grey.
In pointed Bicolours both eyes must be blue, the deeper the better, neither dull nor grey.
Note: Where the white patching covers one or both eyes, the intensity of the eye colour may differ slight between the two eyes.
 
Body - Medium in size. Long and svelte with a tight abdomen: firm and well muscled throughout.
 
Legs & Paws - Legs long and slim: hind legs higher than the front legs. Legs to be firm and well muscled. Paws small and oval.
 
Tail - Long and tapering. Not blunt ended and free from any abnormality of the bone structure.
 
Coat: Shorthaired - Very short and fine in texture: glossy and close lying and free from any flakes of dead skin.
 
Coat: Longhaired - Medium long, fine and silky in texture without a woolly undercoat; glossy with no knots. A long coat should not be penalised provided that it is fine and silky. The tail should be plume-like. The ears may be tufted. The coat should lie flat along the body with the exception of the areas around the chin, neck, underside and tail, where there may be a tendency to frill, thereby disguising the underlying bone structure. By smoothing back the coat it is possible to study the lines of the body. The longer portions of the coat may show a tendency to wave. Longhaired Bicolours do not normally achieve full coat until they are mature and allowance should be made for shorter coats in kittens.
 
White Markings - Any distribution from a minimum of one third white up to and including 'van' pattern with colour showing only on the head and tail; it is essential that there is white on the face, on all four feet/legs and along the underside of the cat from chest to lower abdomen. If the white on the underside forms spots there must be a clear link from one spot to another. The amount of white on the tail is immaterial. Cats displaying less than one third of white to colour, or with unlinked chest and/or belly spots.must not be awarded the certificate, nor first place in kitten classes.
 
In the pointed varieties, the white patching may not be particularly obvious in young kittens. It is also important to understand that the white patches may distort the shade of colour on the points and that in cats showing a high proportion of white the points may be completely obscured. Body shading on pointed cats will appear more exaggerated next to the white patches and should not be penalised.
 
The margin between the coloured and the white areas should be distinct but, due to the close-lying coat, may show slight 'feathering' of white and coloured hairs. As in other Orientals and Siamese, there should be no scattered white hairs in coloured areas or scattered coloured hairs in white areas. Fine lines, sometimes only a few hairs in width, or distinct spots of white in coloured areas or colour in white areas are acceptable.

TORTIE & WHITE
In coloured areas the base colour should be free from tabby markings. This base colour is patched and/or mingled at random with shades of red/cream/apricot which may show tabby markings. The higher the grade of white marking, the more the base colour and the red/cream/apricot form distinct patches.
Nose Leather, Eye Rims & Paw Pads - As in the equivalent Self & White colour.
 
Black Tortie & White (48e) (49e) - Coloured areas jet black with shades of red.
 
Blue Tortie & White (48g) (49g) - Coloured areas blue with shades of cream. Almost black should be penalised.

Fawn Tortie & White (48y) (49y) - Coloured areas fawn with shades of cream.
 
SMOKE & WHITE (48 42 - 48 42y) (49 42 - 49 42y)
In coloured areas any of the above Self & White and Tortie & White colours, with a near-white undercoat which should be approximately one third to two thirds of the total hair length in adults. The degree of contrast on the head and face should match the body as closely as possible and too much silver, giving the appearance of clear tabby markings, is undesirable. In dilute colours the contrast may be less obvious but the undercoat must be silver. The silver gene may modify the colour, resulting in a colder or darker shade than in the self or tortie equivalent and this should not be penalised. Some faint ghost tabby markings may be evident on the body, especially in kittens, but distinct tabby markings in adults are undesirable. In Red, Cream, Apricot and Tortie Smokes & White tabby markings may be more evident, especially in kittens, and should not penalise an otherwise good cat.
Nose Leather, Eye Rims & Paw Pads - As in the equivalent Self & White or Tortie & White colour.
 
TABBY & WHITE
In coloured areas the tabby pattern, which may be Spotted, Classic, Mackerel or Ticked, is formed by markings of the solid pattern colour, which may be any of the above self and tortie colours, on a background of agouti hairs. The pattern colour in Standard Tabbies & White should be that of the equivalent coloured Self & White or Tortie & White. The silver gene may modify the pattern colour, resulting in a colder or darker shade than in the standard equivalent and this should not be penalised. The pattern colour in Spotted, Classic and Mackerel Tabbies & White should match on head, body, legs and tail. In Ticked Tabbies & White the pattern colour on head, legs and tail should match the ticking colour on the body.
 
In Standard Tabbies & White the markings should be dense to the roots and in Silver Tabbies & White they should extend well down the hair. The markings should show good contrast with the ground colour but in dilute colours the contrast between the markings and the ground colour is less than that required in non-dilute colours. In Tortie Tabbies & White the base colour is patched and/or mingled at random with shades of red/cream/apricot. The higher the grade of white marking, the more the base coloured tabby areas and the red/cream/apricot tabby areas form distinct patches. In Silver Tabbies & White tarnishing, i.e. discolouration of the silver ground colour, is undesirable.
Nose Leather & Paw Pads - As in the equivalent Self & White or Tortie & White colour or pink rimmed with the Self or Tortie colour and/or pink.
Eye Rims - As in the equivalent Self & White or Tortie & White colour.
 
Head markings in coloured areas - On the forehead there should be a letter "M" extending to form a beetle shaped "scarab" marking running back between the ears. There should be unbroken lines running from the outer corners of the eyes and there should be pencillings on the cheeks. Thumb-prints on the ears are desirable. In Ticked Tabbies the head markings may be less distinct. The Oriental Tabby has a tendency to white in the immediate area of the lips and lower jaw. It is a serious fault if this extends to the throat and/or muzzle in Standard Tabbies but silvery white colour on the throat and/or muzzle in Silver Tabbies is not a fault.
 
Leg markings in coloured areas - The legs should be barred in Classic, Mackerel and Ticked Tabbies, barred and/or spotted in Spotted Tabbies. The barring should extend from the body marking to the toes, except in Ticked Tabbies where it may be reduced, and the pattern colour should extend well up the back of the hind legs.
 
Tail markings in coloured areas - The tail should be ringed, the rings being wider in Classic Tabbies and less distinct in Ticked Tabbies. There should be a solid tip of the pattern colour except in Red, Cream & Apricot tabbies where the tip may be pale. In Tortie Tabbies the tip may be mottled. In shorthaired Bicolours the rings should be clearly visible on the top of the tail as well as on the underside.
 
Body markings in coloured areas –
 
Spotted pattern (48 38 - 48 38ys) (49 38 - 49 38ys) - On the neck and upper chest there should be broken or unbroken necklaces - the more the better. Lines running from the top of the head down the back of the neck should break into spots on the shoulders and along the spine. Kittens may show a rather solid spine line but evidence of breaking into spots is desirable. A solid spine line in adult cats is a serious fault. The spots may vary in size but should be round and evenly distributed. Spots should not run together into a broken Mackerel striped pattern in any part of the coat. 
 
Classic pattern (48 41 - 48 41ys) (49 41 - 49 41ys) - On the neck and upper chest there should be unbroken necklaces, the more the better. One of the lines running from the top of the head down the back of the neck should extend to the shoulder markings which should be shaped like a butterfly when viewed from above; both upper and lower wings should be clearly defined in outline with dots inside this outline. On the back there should be a line running down the spine from the butterfly to the tail and there should be a stripe on each side of this, running parallel to it. These three stripes should be separated from each other by stripes of the ground colour. On each flank there should be a large solid oyster or blotch, which should be surrounded by one or more unbroken rings. The ground colour and markings should be evenly balanced except on the belly which should be predominantly lighter with spotted markings. The markings on each side should match as closely as possible.
 
Mackerel pattern (48 44 - 48 44ys) (49 44 - 49 44ys) - On the neck and upper chest there should be unbroken necklaces, the more the better. One of the lines running from the top of the head down the back of the neck should extend as a narrow unbroken line to the base of the tail. On either side of this should be a broken spine line from which the narrow lines which form the Mackerel Pattern run vertically down the body; these lines should be as narrow and numerous as possible. Ground colour and markings should be evenly balanced.
 
Ticked pattern (48 45 - 48 45ys) (49 45 - 49 45ys) - On the neck and upper chest there should be at least one distinct necklace, broken or unbroken. The body should be free from spots, stripes or blotches, except for darker dorsal shading. The lighter belly may show tabby markings. The coat should be evenly ticked with the pattern colour, with double, or preferably treble, ticking. i.e. two or three bands of each colour on each hair.

SHADED & WHITE (48 43 - 48 43ys) (49 43 - 49 43ys)
Coat Colour - An agouti cat in which the darker shading colour is restricted to the surface of the coat with a clear under colour.  A Shaded & White is differentiated from a poor Tabby & White by the presence of a clear paler under-colour, free from agouti banding or ticking, extending at least two-thirds up the hair shaft on the sides in adults. Some cats may show heavier shading on the spine line, which is permissible, and may show some residual surface pattern. The tabby pattern, which may be Ticked, Spotted, Mackerel or Classic, may show clearly on the surface of the coat in kittens becoming less distinct as the lighter under-colour extends up the hair shaft with maturity. Classic based Shaded & White may appear darker because the pattern area is greater. The head, legs and tail may show tabby markings of varying clarity depending on the degree of shading.
 
In coloured areas the coat may be shaded or tipped with any of the above Self or Tortie colours. The shading colour should be the same as the pattern area of the equivalent Tabby & White. The under-colour should be slightly paler than the ground colour in the equivalent Tabby & White since there should be no agouti banding, but should not lack any warmth required by the description. The silver gene may modify the shading colour, resulting in a colder or darker shade than in the standard equivalent and this should not be penalised. Tarnishing, i.e. discolouration of the silver, is undesirable.
 
Nose Leather, Eye Rims & Paw Pads - As in the equivalent Tabby & White colour.

The effect will be to produce a paler and muted version of the Self or Tortie Point & White colour, although this will be less obvious in dilute colours. In Red, Cream & Apricot Smoke Points & White the ears may have a faintly mottled appearance. The silver gene often modifies the coat colour resulting in a colder or darker shade than in the standard equivalent and this should not be penalised.
Body - Coloured areas a paler silvery version of the equivalent Self Point & White or Tortie Point & White colour, with a near-white undercoat which should be approximately one third to two thirds of the total hair length in adults. Shading, if any, to tone with points.

TABBY POINT & WHITE (48 40t - 48 40yt) (49 40t - 49 40yt)
 
SILVER TABBY POINT & WHITE (48 40ts - 48 40yts) (49 40ts - 49 40yts)
Points - In coloured areas the markings colour in Standard Tabby Points & White should be that of the equivalent coloured Self Point & White or Tortie Point & White. In Silver Tabby Points & White the silver gene often modifies the colour of the markings resulting in a colder or darker shade than in the standard equivalent and this should not be penalised. The mask, legs and tail should all show clear tabby markings which should be the same colour on all points, although leg markings may be slightly paler in tone. Paler markings are acceptable in kittens. In Tortie Tabby Points & White the base colour is patched and/or mingled at random with shades of red/cream/apricot. The higher the grade of white marking, the more the base coloured tabby areas and the red/cream/apricot tabby areas form distinct patches. In Silver Tabby Points & White tarnishing, i.e. discolouration of the silver ground colour, is undesirable. In Tabby Points & White from Shaded or Shaded & White breeding the tabby markings will be less distinct but should still be evident.
Mask - In coloured areas stripes, especially around the eye and nose, with an 'M' marking on the forehead, stripes on the cheeks and darkly spotted whisker pads. The stripes should not extend over the top of the head to form a 'hood'.
Ears - In coloured areas the edges of the ears should be the same colour as the markings on the mask with a central patch of paler colour resembling a thumb print. These thumb prints may be less apparent in dilute colours. In Tortie Tabby Points the ears may be mottled and the thumb -prints may not be visible. In Red, Cream & Apricot Silver Tabby Points & White  the ears may have a faintly mottled appearance.
Legs - In coloured areas varied-sized, broken stripes. Solid markings on the back of hind legs. The leg markings may be slightly paler in tone than the other points, especially in Red, Cream and Apricot Tabby Points & White.
Tail - In coloured areas varied-sized rings, possibly broken. The rings should extend for the entire length of the tail, ending in a solid tip except in Red, Cream and Apricot Tabby Points where the tip may be pale. In Tortie Tabby Points the tip may be mottled. In shorthaired Bicolours the rings should be clearly visible on the top of the tail as well as on the underside.
Body - Coloured areas as in the equivalent Self Point & White, Tortie Point & White or, in Silver Tabby Points, Smoke Point & White colour. Shading, if any, to tone with points. Shading will show the underlying tabby pattern which may be ticked, spotted, mackerel or classic. A Tabby Point & White should be penalised for shading no more nor less severely than the equivalent Self, Tortie or Smoke Point & White.
Nose Leather & Paw Pads - As in the equivalent Self Point & White or Tortie Point & White colour, or pink outlined by that colour.
Eye Rims - As in the equivalent Self Point & White or Tortie Point & White colour.
