What distinguishes "chinchilla" color from "silver shaded" color?

Outwardly, these colors are very similar, which is why people on the Internet often confuse these two different colors, in terms of felinologists. This is not entirely true! Now I will try to explain to you the difference, and also illustrate my explanation with photos of my breeding cats, cats and their children 🙂

Scottish cats of chinchilla color (ns 11) have well-colored each tip of the cover hair (about 1/3 of the hair), and the rest of the hair is pale. Due to this special kind of color, which is called "tipping" in the terminology of professional breeders, all the hair look slightly colored, and, consequently, the tabby effect is not active. The degree of tipping in chinchillas is negligible, so at first glance it may seem that the cat is white, but if you look closely, you can see that the color of the cat seems to sparkle.

And if we talk about shaded silver (ns 12), then the coloring of each covering hair begins much higher. In this kind of color, the colored tips are shorter (about 1/8 of the hair) than in the color of the "chinchilla", so the cats of this color are lighter, they have a white undercoat.
Chin, abdomen and ears, according to the standard, should only be white. Dark hairs on the paws and between the fingers are a defect for this color.
