genetics help <33

Please see this announcement HERE for the rules and information on new regulations and additions!
It's with a heavy heart that we announce the shutdown of FeralFront. You can read more about this, as well as find a link to an alternative, great new place to RP, here:
If you'd like some free FeralFront memorabilia to look back on fondly, see this thread from Dynamo:
Some FeralFronters are having a thread to reminisce in character. You can find it here:
  • ✦ ✧ (half somali, half ticked tabby) long haired brown ticked tabby with emerald eyes (female) X (mixed, mostly somali) long haired ruddy tom with emerald green eyes (male)


  • -assumed heterozygous where possible to increase diversity

    - (+) is used to show an assumed to breed standard or wildtype.

    male genetics used: xB Y Dd (+) (Ruddy/standard)

    female genetics used xB xbl (+) (Ruddy/standard)

    the results:

    AMAB kittens:

    xB Y D- (+) Ruddy/standard - 33.33%

    xB Y dd (+) Blue - 16.67%

    xbl Y D- (+) Sorrel - 33.33%

    xbl Y dd (+) Fawn - 16.67%

    AFAB kittens:

    xB - D- (+) Ruddy/standard - 66.66%

    xB - dd (+) Blue - 33.33%

    All kittens will be long furred

    All kittens can have any possible eye color but blue

    genetic risk factors:

    chronic hemolytic anemia/pyruvate kinase deficiency - recessive hereditary disease that prevents the body from producing or using the pyruvate kinase enzyme. causes the body to produce aspherical red blood cells, which are then filtered out by the spleen en masse and destroyed, causing chronic or intermittent anemia, lethargy, jaundice or paling of the skin and gums, and an enlarged spleen. Many are able to live a relatively long life with a lower red blood count, only rarely resulting in death. Between 15% and 30% of somalis are carriers.

    renal amyloidosis - unknown cause, suspected hereditary that causes a disfunction in the kidneys, resulting in a build up of the protein amyloid. As the build up occurs, the kidneys gradually lose function, and the body loses it's ability to filter waste and toxins from blood. Symptoms are excessive drinking and urination, lethargy, vomiting, swollen limbs, loss of appetite, and weight loss. It is highly fatal.
