Strawberry Cream

Fur

Coat color shall be white and orange over the topcoat giving a blended or mottled “strawberries and cream” effect. The orange will fade towards the sides of the animal, with the belly fur being white. The under fur shall be white throughout. Overall the effect shall be brighter and more vibrant than a Honey Cream.

Eyes

Shall be red, large and bright. Clear circles of lighter color should surround them.

Ears

Shall be pink but covered with fine white fur.

Whiskers

Shall be white, long and bristling.

Feet

Shall be white with toenails that are neutral in color (i.e., clear and without pigment).

Faults

Either too little or excessive white in the coat; fur of any other color in the coat; toenails not of the right color.
