Shorthair Version Here!
DISCLAIMER: I AM IN NO WAY A TRAINED EXPERT ON THIS SUBJECT. I AM SELF-TAUGHT. THERE MAY BE PLACES WHERE MY INFORMATION IS NOT ACCURATE! IF YOU THINK SOMETHING IS WRONG, PLEASE TELL ME.
Say hello to the first expansion of the Cat Mixer-- Longhair Edition!
Consider this a second version of Shorthair. You can have one, the other, or both-- all future expansions will be split to include one layer set for shorthair and one set for longhair. Hope you enjoy!
Please read the following carefully so you can know if this is for you!
Upon purchase you will receive a .psd file containing 70 layers to turn on and off to create a custom cat. There are almost 500,000 different possible combinations. This creator includes basic coat genetics; base color, dilution, tabby, tortoiseshell, white, eye color, and albinism. There is a guide below to create a genetically sound cat as the creator won’t stop you from making mistakes: I recommend you save it to a text file for quick reference.
You will need an art program that supports:
- Layers and layer groups
- Blending modes (Specifically, screen— google this if you’re unsure)
- 70+ layers
- Layer masks (Google if unsure)
The cat mixer has been confirmed to work on the following programs:
- Procreate for iPad (created in this app)
- Medibang Paint Pro
- Clip Studio Paint
If your program is not on this list and you find that it works, leave a comment so I can add it!
Terms of Service
- Do not take credit for my artwork.
- Do not redistribute the .psd file for ANY reason without my explicit permission.
- Do not attempt to profit off of my artwork, via adopts or otherwise. Free adopts are fine as long as you provide a link to this source.

Please only choose one option for each group. Choosing more than one will result in demons and very large bats flying out of your computer.
This is the ‘black’ color of the cat and its variants. Cinnamon is very rare, while chocolate is uncommon.
This is the ‘red’ color of the cat. You’ll notice there are only tabby options because red cats cannot be solid-colored. You can also activate the layer mask linked to any of the options to make your cat a tortoiseshell, or calico. When tortoiseshell is on, the eumelanin option you chose will show through.
This modifies the existing colors to make them lighter. A black dilute is grey, a chocolate dilute is lilac, a cinnamon dilute is fawn, and a red dilute is cream. This will work on tortoiseshells. The caramel dilute, or double dilute, is very rare, creating a caramel look to a diluted cat.
This affects eumelanin only. There are four types of tabby: mackerel, classic, spotted, and ticked. Ticked has two versions: banded, where stripes show through on the legs and tail, and agouti, where the cat has no stripes except on the face. This will work on tortoiseshells, creating a torbie, or tabico. Don’t use this on plain red tabbies, as they already have stripes.
Also known as piebald, patched, or bicolor, this adds white in varying levels to the cat. It’s pretty self-explanatory. White always covers everything below it.
Certain color cats can only have certain eye colors, but it’s lengthy to explain in words. I suggest referring to this chart.
Blue eyes and odd-colored eyes only occur when white spotting covers the eyes. In odd eyes, one eye is always blue. Cats with white over the eyes can still have any color eyes, not just blue.
Dominant white is a gene that makes the entire cat white. The cat can have orange eyes, blue eyes, or one of each.
Albinism is extremely rare. Blue-eyed albinos are rare enough, but a red-eyed albino is extraordinarily unusual.
Leave these alone. Big bats, remember?
Hello, so I made an account specifically to buy your cat makers and the short haired one is fantastic! but this long haired one still has the same issue of broken tabby layers and an absence of tortoiseshell layers. I don't know if you've fixed this or were planning on it, but I would just like to know.
Hi! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed it. I was not aware of this issue, I’ll look into it. It’s been a very long time since I’ve worked on these so it might take some time to figure out. Thanks for the heads up!
The only wonky this is the tabby layers, that has been mentioned before. Other than that, having no issues with it on MediBang!
Thank you for all of the great work!
(Is this version supposed to have the tortie layers? Or is that just for shorthair?)
Hope that helps <3
2. I can't find the tortoiseshell/calico folder anywhere, so I can't make a tortoiseshell or calico cat.
If that doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll send you the .psd through stash instead.
