Surprise Kitten!

Thanks! What I meant was- is there something more specific than just 'smoke'? I read about it on another thread:

"smoke can come in any color of melanistic ; brown black, chocolate, cinnamon, and the dilute colors blue, lilac, fawn, and the modified dilute colors caramel, taupe, and carmel-fawn (or what ever a cinnamon modified dilute is called). It caused the silver inhibitor gene and makes a melanistic cat a smoke. Otherwise the cat is silver."

He was born on October 1st :)

Ah, ok...IDK - it is hard to tell right now, so when he gets older, his breeder should be able to tell you ;) Or we will be able to tell you!

He is a cutie! I think if his nose is black and his paw pads are black then he is a black smoke :up:

Here is our new SV baby- my husband's Christmas gift!! He knows I am getting a kitten for him, but has not seen any photos :) (I've gone back and forth with about 10 kittens before finally settling on this guy =) This little smoke boy will be home for New Years!! I can't wait to have 2 kitties, and I know Vivi will be happy to have a playmate! I had to share my excitement with you guys, as I know you'll understand!!

I just read on another thread about smoke colors (had no idea)- chocolate, tawny, etc... What would you say this boy is?

LOve, love, LOVE smokes! Congrats on your new baby!

Congratulations on the new kitten!

My guess would be black smoke, which is a permissible color/pattern for the Savannah breed :)

Awwww, so cute! I have a 6 month old smoke kitten. Your guy has much more silver than mine, which is very cool. My guy looks like a Mel in pictures, though in person his spots are easy to see and his tummy has a lot of silver. I am seeing more and more silver come through as he grows, but he won't ever be as dramatic as your baby!

Yes, depending on how well the silver gene develops, your smoke Savannah can range from almost appearing melanistic (I had one like that years ago) to one that appears almost exactly like a silver spotted tabby too!

Thanks everyone! It will be pretty cool to have 2 rare color SVs :) But let's be honest, I am a sucker for that black nose!

Anyone else an 80's kid here? One of our favorite cartoons when we were little was David the Gnome, lol. I loved the fox, 'Swift', and am hoping to name him that. He reminds me of a little black fox or wolf... Hopefully hubby will like it too!

I also like the names Lucifer (from cinderella) & Vendetta (one of our fave movies). I thought 'Vivi and Vendetta' would be a cute pair!

Any other names come to mind?

You are asking for trouble with a name like Lucifer:p

He is adorable! What a nice wifey to give him as a gift...
