What Color Is This Little Guy?

by Heather Anderson
(Gilroy, CA)

I am wondering what color this little Lynx Point might be.

I originally thought it was a Blue Point (I grew up with Korats) but now his tips are much darker. They're not really brown though. They very much match the grey tabby mommy's darker colors.

He's a stray that has taken to hanging out in my backyard.

Reply from Caroline:

Welcome Heather, and thank you for sending in your photo of your little stray - he's a real cutie!

It can be difficult to identify Siamese colors precisely from photos, especially without knowing the colors of the parents of the kitten, but you said the mom is a grey tabby and because of this I tend to agree with you - I think he is a Blue Lynx Point (more by process of eliminating the other colors than anything else) but if he continues to darken up he could turn out to be a Seal Lynx Point.

Coincidentally your question arrived on the same day as another color identification request, which you can see here - What kind of Lynx Point Siamese am I?

Hi Heather! I agree with Caroline's response to your query. This kitty looks very similar to my blue lynx point Siamese, River, when she was that age. As many others have commented, the blue lynx points do seem to darken as they get older and then it is much easier to tell. I hope you were able to adopt this little fella!

Hi Heather, are you planning to adopt the little guy? He is certainly beautiful.

Penny, this page was actually posted some time ago. It would be lovely to hear from Heather with an update though! - Caroline
