"The Ruddy Somali has an overall impression of an orange-brown or ruddy coat ticked with black, with darker shading along the spine allowed. The underside of the body and inside of the legs and chest is to be an even ruddy tone, harmonizing with the topcoat, without ticking, barring, necklaces, or belly marks.
The Red Somali is a warm, glowing red ticked with chocolate brown. Darker shading is allowed along the spine. Again, the underside of the body is an even color, harmonizing with the topcoat .
The Blue Somali's coat is ticked with various shades of slate blue, the extreme outer tip to be the darkest, with an ivory to blush-beige undercoat. The underside of the body is a peach-apricot color that harmonizes with the topcoat.
The Fawn Somali has a warm rose-beige coat, ticked with light cocoa brown, the extreme outer tip to be the darkest, with a blush-beige undercoat. The underside of the body is a lighter cream which harmonizes with the topcoat.
