Default Maple's Colouring?

If you haven't seen my other thread Maple is my new female Syrian. I pretty sure she is a satin red eye cream but just want to confirm it with something who has a better knowledge on colouring. So is my assumption correct?

Here is a photo of her face (more photos can be found here All About My Maple)

I've looked at the other pics and I think she is a Mink satin myself. The shade just doesn't look right for cream however it could be the light in the cage. You don't see the eye rings that clearly on satin coats.

Ok - I did consider mink but it difficult to find pictures of coat colour in the satin form. Although it quite difficult to get good photos/or a look of her at the moment as she is very energetic.
The other thing that threw me is I thought satin usually made the colour darker than what they would be usually but I can see what you mean now especially comparing photos to your Halloumi that Maple doesn’t look to be cream.

So thank you

Yes Halloumi looks almost cinnamon now but your girl has a more browny / minky tone to her I think. She will get more orangy as she matures though.

Thank you such much for this information - I am now really excited to see what colour her fur goes as she mature.
I’m really fascinated with colours especially how satin effect the colouring.
