|Coat Colour||Hairs are tipped with the appropriate colour with a narrow silver-white band at the roots, which can be seen only on parting the hair.
Undercoat silver-white. In repose the cat appears to be solid coloured, but in motion the silver-white undercoat is clearly visible.
The cats are silvery around the eyes and have silvery frown markings.
Frill and ear tufts are silver-white.
A smoke cat without ghost tabby markings is preferred.
|Remarks||A smoke cat is a cat of contrast.
Often kittens have some marks or reverse contrast, which usually disappear with the development of the kitten.
