What Kind of Siamese Do I Have?
I adopted my Siamese cat Mesha from the local Humane Society about a year ago and just love her. She plays fetch with me, curls up next to me every night, and is quite vocal.
However, I'm not 100% sure which type of Siamese she is. I'm thinking traditional. Anyone have an idea?

Thank you April, for your question and picture of Mesha. It's a little difficult to tell exactly what type of Siamese cat she is from the photo, as she's lying on her back so we can't see her body shape, but I think you're probably right, from her face shape Mesha does look more like an applehead rather than the modern, show-style type.
She might also perhaps be considered an old-fashioned Siamese, falling somewhere between the applehead and modern Siamese.
With her dark face, ears and paws I would say she's definitely a Seal Point in coloring.
Well done for adopting her! I always try and encourage people to consider cat adoption if they can, as there are plenty of great cats out there just waiting for their special owner and a 'forever' home.
Mesha looks like a very contented cat - she's very lucky to have found you.
