new kitty!! anyone good with cat genetics??

alright so i got this new kitten... and she is pretty unique considering where she came from. we got her from our neighbor who rescued her from someone who just has lots of cats around her house that breed and breed like rabbits, now Zafara (my new kitten!) is born from 2 regular domestic mix breed cats(i guess..) and she was half the size of the others so i guess that makes her the runt of the litter, she was also almost bald, and she looks like someone shaved her, now she isn't a sphynx as she does have fur, it's very short and coarse, her color is as i assume it to be a Dilute Calico, i believe her to be a Cornish Rex, as she has the rounded back, the face, and ears of one and of course the fur, the original cornish rex was from Cornwall, England and it came from a regular batch of kittens where only one(like zafara!) came out looking smaller and funky, so i guess that is what happened! now here are lots of pictures of my girlie!

haha she gets cold VERY easy, and she is usually cold in 70-80 degree weather so she has to wear clothes to keep her warm or always cuddled up in a blanket.

Very pretty! She does really look like a Cornish Rex. I don't know much about cat colors and the proper names for them, but she looks like a blue calico to me.

She's adorable!! Love how her personality seems to be captured in each picture. Wonder if her hair will grow back in. Looks like her ears could use a bit of a cleaning. Congrats on your new addition!
