Cat Genetics. So simple, yet so complicated. Let's see how short-furred and long-furred genes get passed down. Let's use the Firestar family.

Daisytoe and Flashnose - These two are sisters, and are long-furred. It is unknown whether they carry the short-furred gene.

Swiftbreeze and Adderfang - These two are mates. Swiftbreeze is short-furred, while Adderfang is long-furred. Swiftbreeze carries the long-furred gene via Flashnose, but it is unknown in Adderfang.

Robinwing and Fuzzypelt - Robinwing is short-furred while Fuzzypelt is long-furred. It is unknown whether they carry the opposite gene.

Redtail and Brindleface - Brindleface is short-furred, while Redtail is obviously long-furred. Brindleface has the long-furred gene via Fuzzypelt, and Redtail has the short-furred gene via Swiftbreeze.

Jake and Quince - Jake is short-furred and so is Quince. Unknown whether they carry the opposite gene.

Scourge, Socks, and Ruby - They are all short-furred, and it is unknown whether they carry the opposite gene.

Nutmeg - She is short-furred, and it is unknown whether she has the opposite gene.

Firestar, Princess, Luna, Filou, and Tommy - Firestar and Filou are both short-furred, and Princess, Luna, and Tommy are all long-furred, indicating that one or both of their parents may have the long-furred gene.

Oliver - Long-furred. Unknown whether he has the opposite gene.

Cloudtail - Is long-furred, but carries the short-furred gene via Jake and Nutmeg.

That's it for now, because I'm lazy. :P

PS: I dunno if these are controlled by genes, but whatever.
