Below is a collection of variety pictures I have taken over the years to show the comparison between different varieties that have lived or been born at Alpha Centauri. Burmese & Black Eyed Varieties are now here

All my pictures are taken with a Canon s40 or Olympus SP350 digital camera and in daylight with no flash.

British blue based colours - from a 'pure' British line

(Alpha Centauri Guinness x Alpha Centauri Bridget litter with a Rivendell russian blue thrown in for comparison)

lilac and British blue comparison - the lilac is the paler of the two.

lilac and Russian blue - again lilac is the paler rat
