    I assume that you are referring to Maine Coons, since you are posting on a MC thread. For a list of colors possible in the MC breed, see the Cat Fanciers\' Association breed standard page for the MC at: http://www.cfainc.org/breeds/standards/maine.html Basically, Maine Coons come in all the colors that the average American housecat comes in. The only colors not allowed are those that show Siamese influence, the \"pointed colors\" in which the ears, feet, tail, and sometimes face, are of a darker color than the rest of the cat. The great variety of colors available in the Maine Coon is one reason for its popularity. Enjoy!
