Purebred Cinnamon Ragdolls
Dr. Maxine Stiles, a veterinarian and geneticist, and Sharon Steadman of Lattedolls, introduced the cinnamon gene from an outcross of an Abyssinian into the Ragdoll breed. After many generations, Dr. Stiles was granted her first SBT registration papers from TICA, in 2007, for Dollnouveau Dr. Pepper.
A cat's "phenotype" is the way it looks and it's "genotype" describes its actual genetic makeup for particular pairs of genes. Butterscotch Puddin's great-grandfather, Dollnouveau Cinnamon Sebastian, phenotypically is a Cinnamon Lynx Colorpoint Ragdoll, and genetically is b'b'Dd.
The cinnamon gene is a mutation of the gene responsible for producing black hair in the cat. An "allelic" group includes differing mutations of the same gene. In the cat, this particular allelic group includes black (B), chocolate (b) and cinnamon (b'). Black is the dominant form of this gene. Chocolate behaves as recessive to black, and dominant to cinnamon; therefore, cinnamon is the recessive to chocolate.
If a cat gets the dominant black form of the gene from one parent, then regardless of what came from the other parent, the cat will be black (BB, Bb, or Bb'). With no black gene, but with two copies of the chocolate gene, the cat will be chocolate (bb or bb'). The only way to see the cinnamon color, is for the cat to have two copies of the recessive cinnamon gene (b'b'Dd or b’b’DD).
With only one copy of the recessive cinnamon gene (Bb’ or bb’), a cat is considered a cinnamon carrier, that cat’s phenotype will not exhibit the cinnamon coloration, but it will have the ability to produce visual cinnamons when mated to a pure cinnamon with two copies of the cinnamon gene. A diluted cinnamon cat is a fawn. It takes three pairs of recessives to produce this coat color - cscs, b'b' dd.
