Over the years, Wyndcreste has only been blessed with only a few Shaded Goldens, like the pet quality Golden above, as it is a recessive gene a 'Golden" kitten pops up in a litter every now and then for placement in a home as a pet. With that being said I would like to provide you with an introduction to Golden Persians and Exotics and photos of Show Quality Goldens currently being bred. Links to the owners' websites are below. Many thanks to everyone contributing photos and articles for this page.

Golden Persians appeared in Silver Persian litters for many years before this beautiful color was recognized. Golden kittens were quietly sold as pets and breeders tried to pretend that they did not have such a thing in their line! Most were sold as pets without papers. If they were registered, they were usually listed as Brown Tabbies or Shaded Silvers. The Cat Fanciers Association, Inc., (CFA) finally admitted Goldens to championship competition in 1977.

Recognition of the Goldens has been achieved in all the U.S. cat association. Goldens only appear when both parents carry the recessive gene for Gold or when one Golden is bred to another. Goldens have beautiful green or blue-green eyes that provide a striking contrast to their golden-hued coats. They carry the rose nose, dark paw pads and black margin and mascara of silvers. It is believed that Silvers are a genetic mutation from green-eyed Brown Tabbies. Over the years, breeders are conscientiously breeding out the barring and early splotched color. But, even though the markings are being bred out, the recessive brown gene still remains in many silver lines. Silvers and Goldens are technically or rather gentically speaking shaded black cats. Both carry the gene for eumelanin or black/sepia coloring. If you are a silver breeder, Goldens can be used in your breeding program. CFAs standards describe the color as follows:

CHINCHILLA GOLDEN PERSIANS: Undercoat pale honey to bright apricot. Coat on back, flanks, head and tail sufficiently tipped with black to enhance a golden appearance. Legs and end of tail may be shaded with tipping. Chin, ear tufts, stomach and chest, consistent dilute color, much lighter in tone that the undercoat color. The general effect is lighter than a shaded golden due to less tipping. Rims of eyes, lips, and nose outlined with black. Nose leather: rose. Paw pads: black. Eye color: green or blue-green. Disqualify for incorrect eye color, incorrect eye color being copper, yellow, gold, amber, or any color other than green or blue green.

SHADED GOLDEN PERSIANS: Undercoat pale honey to bright apricot with a mantle of black tipping shading down from the sides, face, head and tail. Legs are to be the same tone as the face. Ear tufts, chin, chest stomach and underside of the tail, consistent dilute color, much lighter in tone than the undercoat. The general effect is darer than a Chinchilla Golden due to more tipping. Rims of eyes, lips, and nose outlined with black. Nose leather: rose. Paw pads: black. Eye color: green or blue-green. Disqualify for incorrect eye color, incorrect eye color being copper, yellow, gold, amber, or any color other than green or blue green.

Most Goldens are noted for their beautiful eye color. Maybe that is because it shows up so clearly against their apricot colored fur. Chinchilla Goldens are rare, as most born are Shaded Goldens or Golden Tabbies. Kittens are born almost black with mackerel or classic tabby markings. The kittens temple area usually indicates the adult color. The brighter this is, the brighter the adult coat. They also go through a color change and anywhere between six and twelve months, your gorgeous kitten can develop a drab, grey looking coat; be patient and have faith! The true adult coat will eventually appear.

More breeders are devoting their time and efforts toward producing superior Golden Persian Cats. However, they are not plentiful and obtaining one requires patience and effort.

The Following Rules Apply When Breeding for
Golden Persian or Exotic Cats:

  1. Two Silvers not carrying the Golden-gene: none of the kittens will be Goldens, nor will they carry the Golden gene.
  2. A Silver carrying the Golden gene bred to one not carrying it: all the kittens will be Silver and 50 percent will carry the gene.
  3. Two Silvers carrying the Golden gene: 25 percent of the kittens will be golden, 25 percent will be Silver and 50 percent will carry the Golden gene.
  4. A Golden bred to a Silver not carrying the Golden gene: all kittens will be Silver carrying the Golden gene.
  5. A Golden bred to a Silver carrying the Golden gene: 50 percent will be golden and 50 percent will be Silver.
  6. A Golden bred to another Golden will produce all Golden kittens.

A Silver carrying only the Silver gene is homozygous for Silver, as a Golden is homozygous for Golden. If a Silver carries the Golden gene also, he or she is heterozygous for either gene. Breeders who have purchased a Silver cat get upset when their colorbreed Silver Silver develops a cream spot, thinking they have been sold a Chinchilla or Shaded Silver out of Solid color breeding. If a Silver has Goldens in their pedigree may develop these spots which come and go as the coat changes. This has nothing to do with Solid colors (Blacks, Reds or Tortoiseshell or the dilute Blue, Cream and Blue-cream) Persians, it only means that your Silver may carry the Golden gene, or is heterozygous Silver. Homozygous Silvers carry two genes for Silver and can only produce Silver kittens. Heterozygous Silvers carry one gene for Silver and one gene for Golden. When bred to a Golden or another heterozygous Silver they can produce Golden kittens. It is fun breeding a Silver to a Golden and wondering if a Golden kitten will appear in the litter.
