Rules to remember:

A red male will always give tortie daughters only,unless the mother is red/creme/tortie - then he may give red daughters also.

A red female will always give tortie daughters only- unless the male cat is also red/creme, then she may give red/creme females also.

Red/creme is a dominant gene and will only show up on kittens, if one of the parents have visible red or creme.

Tabby markings are also dominant and will only show up if one of the parents have visible tabby markings.

Dominant genes do not skip a generation and show up later.

To make blue, cream, chokolate or lilac, both parents must be at least carriers of the color.
