Angoras can be any of the standard shorthair colours. The range of possible coat colours includes everything from self-coloured (black, blue, chocolate, lilac, cinnamon, caramel, fawn, red, cream and apricot), torty, smoke (silver undercoat), shaded or tipped, tabby or white. All angora cats have green eyes, except for the whites, which may be green, blue and odd-eyed whites.
If an oriental longhair (Angora) cat is bred to a shorthaired oriental or a siamese cat, the kittens will all be short-haired. However, if these kittens are reintroduced into a breeding program as adults, half of their kittens will have long coats.
