What would you like to do?
it depends on the cats genetics, the most likely pair would be gray or black tuxedos or black or gray patch. black is a more dominant color so you most likely will have black

Answer: Breeding a Black and a White Cat You would probably get some black cats, some white cats, and some black and white cats. And there's also a chance of some grey cats …too. you will get a white or black cat or a mixed i have a white cat w/ a black tail his brother was ornage so you never know with mixing but i would most likely bet on white or black, and the mother jeans in fur will probably out through the other. At least half the kittens will be white. You won't know if the white cat can have non-white children until you actually breed them or know what its parents looked like. :) The all-white cat is a result of a dominant gene which masks all underlying colors. So basically you can get ANY color and pattern from a mating with a white cat, depending on the colors he/she wears under the white coat. In theory, 50% of the kittens should be white. This is only true for an all-white cat, this is not true for a bicolor (a white cat with colored areas). White spotting is caused by a different gene.
You would most likely get more tabbies than anything else because the tabby gene is more dominate than any other coat color gene. (This is one of the reasons most second or th…ird generation feral cats are tabbies). Natural selection made the tabby gene more dominant because the tabby coat is better camouflage than solid or bicolor coats, and thus an individual with a tabby coat would have better chances of survival because it could hunt and avoid predators more easily. Depending on which parent is the bicolor, the black and white cat, it may give you more of a clue as of what the kittens may be. If it is a male cat, then the babies are more likely to be a mystery. This is because there are two basic colors for the coats: red and black, both being dominant. All other colors are a variation of one of those two, and white is a masking gene, which means it covers up the true color. Since males are xy chromosomes, and because the x chromosome holds the dominant coat color, males will appear with either red or black coats and not both. Since females have two xx chromosomes, they could be both red and black. This is why calicoes and tortoiseshell cats are usually female (the males of these types have an extra chromosome [xxy] and they are usually sterile.) Basicaly this means it depends on the blood line for your two cats; If the bicolor is male then he may be carrying the red gene. If it is female, then the kittens are more likely to have black then red because the two xx's are both genes for black coloration (but she may still carry the red gene if there was a red cat in her blood line). Another Answer Unless there is a blue or silver (grey) cat in one or both parent's bloodline, the kittens are probably not going to be grey. The black and white from the bicolor cat will not mix to make grey kittens. (Again, black is dominant and white is a masking gene, so they can't mix.) Then there is the tabby cat to consider. Tabby is a coat pattern and not a color or breed of cat. Tabbies come in all colors from red, more commonly brown, blue, silver, Cinnamon, fawn, chocolate, buff, cream and many more, and that cat could have many more colors in it's blood line then what shows. Your best bet is to spay and neuter your pets and find a cat/kitten with the coloring you want at your local humane society or cat rescue group. They will most likely have a cat or kitten that had parents with the exact coloring or the two you were consider breeding.
The colour that the kittens are from this combination all depends on the genitic make up of each cat and what is passed on to each kitten. There any many different optio…ns that could result from this mix.
Hereditary traits in cats can be difficult because of so many variables involved such as, are the Black cat and Grey cat both pure breeds (who's blood lines are documented). I…f the mating pair are not pure breeds it can be almost impossible to determine what colors the kittens will be. the simplest answer is, that if the Black cat and Grey cat bred, there's a 50/50 chance that the some kittens will be Black and some will be Grey. This is where genetics play they're role, but it's not that easy. Cats are spontaneous ovulators, which means; a female will come into estrus (heat) when an intact (unneutured) male is in the area. Now to add to the confusion, a female cat can mate and become pregnant by multiple males. Yes, one litter of kittens with the same mother can have multiple fathers. If this factor was removed, then the next question would be, "what colors were the Grandparents?". Again there are so many variables you could be asking yourself questions all day long and never get a solid, straight answer. so in conclusion, you really can't answer this question with certainty. Sorry. Hope this helps. For further information you could try talking to your local veterinarian. --- Around 50% to 100% of the kittens may be black, and 0% to 50% of the kittens may be gray. Also 0% to 25% of kittens may be brown or light brown.
I would assume some orange some black and some grey. --- You wouldn't get any orange kittens. You would mainly get tabbies, you might get some black kittens and depe…nding on the lightness of the tabby's fur you might get brown or gray kittens.
The kittens would be plain white, tabby marking and colour, or if the white cat is a mixed breed any colour can be expected
They could be white, grey, white and grey, or many other things. It is all about genetics. There could be a recessive gene in there for dark fur, so you might end up with a bl…ack kitten, or some other random color. Most likely you will get a white, grey or mixed white and grey kitten.
It all depends on genetics like if the black is B1 B2 or B3 and that means it's ability to be carried on... most likely you will get some dark cats.
if the female is white then you get white,grey and spots if the female is grey then you get blue,black and spots
It depends because a ginger tom and a black and white mixed breed bred and one of the kittens was grey with ginger splodges. You may get another white cat or brown cat or a wh…ite cat with brown splodges.
There is actually no way to know. It has to do with the anscestors of the cats, whether they are purebreds, and their genes. If they are purebred, it will most likely be that …the kittens are a solid color.
Depending on the parent's genes, it is likely the kittens will be either Black, White or a mixture of the two.
my cat, Morticia has had 2 litters (she is now desexed) but both times she had all black and white kittens. some even looked identical to her :)
Yes. Sometimes two white cats will mate then on kitten might black. Cats can come from a grey cat and be orange.
You will get a multi-colored cat likely..............
Purple, with a side of who the $@%^ cares.
It would most likely be a mix between white and grey cats.
