The results are given of a survey of inherited characters in 700 London cats.
The hypothesis of random mating was tested by using the results for yellow and tortoiseshell, and was found satisfactory.
Gene frequencies were estimated on this hypothesis, and are given in Table 3.
There was a significant tendency for male castration to increase hair length.
