Dear Chi Chi,
Yous a beeeeautiful Persian Kitty. But Chinchillas are white with only a dusting of dark hair on the center of the back. I am a shaded silver and have much less color than yous. Yous looks like a cross between a smoke and a shaded silver. If yous wants to looks ats more pictures; you can goto persian-cats.com they haves a bigs library of photos and lots of furrpeople and people to talk to.
Big Purrs to an lovely kitty.

Symphony, you are a real beautie! Mew!

You look like a black smoke to me either. I'm not sure about CFA standards but according to FIFe standards chinchillas are supposed to have green eyes and look white with little black tips. Black smokes look black and show undercoat when they move or when one "opens" their fur.

But you are a cutiesmile
