COLOR PREFIX NUMBERS

The following codes incorporate the breed, color and sex of a cat registered by CFA, and used in the prefix section of a cat's registration number.

The registration number prefixes listed below are for males of that breed and color. The value of 1 is added to this code to identify a female of the same breed and color. For example: 1700 is a Blue Eyed White Maine Coon Male, 1701 is a Blue Eyed White Maine Coon Female.

NOTE: Color Prefixes marked ** are no longer issued. They are included here for informational purposes only.
