Hi, my name is Sarah and I have a Siamese named Simon. I was just wondering if he was a Seal Point or a Chocolate Point? (The vet said Chocolate.)
He's about two years old now. He was a stray we found in our yard when he was about six months old. I instantly fell in love with him!
He loves to be around people, he's very friendly and loving and very talkative! I love it when he just walks around the house meowing his little heart out :)

Welcome Sarah and thank you for your question - it's a very good one. Many people wonder how to tell a Chocolate Point from a Seal Point, and when you don't know the cat's ancestry and parents (which you don't, when you adopt a stray) it can be very difficult indeed.
So here are some pointers.
The first thing to note is that Chocolate Points generally have paler, whiter coats than Seal Points. Seals tend to be more of a creamy-beige, especially as they get older.
