Breed Council Change Considerations:

NOTE:  Rose highlight indicates a "Strike-through" of wording in the Bengal Breed standard to be removed.  Gold highlight indicates an "underline" which is new wording being proposed to add in to the Bengal Standard.

1.  Accept 2018 proposed CFA Bengal Standard for BLUE SILVER LYNX POINT,  BLUE SILVER MINK TABBY, BLUE SILVER SEPIA TABBY as a group of colors rather than individual color descriptions.  Change the description wording as follows from the 2018 Ballot:

Same as for corresponding non-silver color, except coloring is colder and duller, cooler. A white undercoat may be present, especially at underside of tail base. 

Rationale:

A.  Shortens the color portion our standard by combing 3 colors

B.  These colors will be infrequently registered and shown.   

C.  We can separate these colors if we start to see more of them registered and shown in CFA.

D. Eye color and Tail Tip color are already included within the language of the first part of the first sentence.

E. The word "duller" has a negative connotation.   Some council members don't beleive it's necessary.  

Obstacle:

PROPOSAL #66 on the 2019 Ballot.  Ballot results:  40 yes, 27 no - 67 voters need 41 "yes" votes to pass.  Did not pass. 

2.  If Proposal #66 doesn't pass, we need to add in tail tip color as it is currently not addressed.

TAIL TIP:  Blue.

Rationale:  Tail tip is not addressed.

PROPOSAL #67 on the proposed 2019 Ballot.  Ballot results:  40 yes, 27 no - 67 voters need 41 "yes" votes to pass.  Did not pass. 

Breed Council Change Considerations for 2019 that did not get on the Ballot:

A.  Accept 2018 proposed CFA Bengal Standard for BLUE SILVER LYNX POINT, BLUE SILVER MINK TABBY and BLUE SILVER SEPIA TABBY:

 

Same as corresponding non-silver color, except coloring is colder and duller, and white undercoat may be present, especially at underside of tail base.

Rationale:

A.  Shortens the color portion our standard by combing 3 colors

B.  These colors will be infrequently registered and shown.   

C.  We can separate these colors if we start to see more of them registered and shown in CFA.

D. Eye color and Tail Tip color are already included within the language of the first part of the first sentence.

Obstacle:

A.  "Duller" seems to have a negative connotation.  Suggest we change to question #2.
