Range of Siamese Cat Points

Here is a picture by Flickr photographer Chris Isherwood of his Siamese cats and an Oriental Shorthair (an associated cat breed). I have guessed (incorrectly on two occasions!) what type of pointing the cats have:

Siamese cat types and one Oriental Shorthair

One aspect of the cats that you can see clearly is the smooth single coat that lies close to the skin. This is typical of Siamese cats. It is in complete contrast to the shaggy long coat of the Maine Coon and the dense tight coat of the British Shorthair.

Someone can leave me a comment to correct me! Go on, I dare you.

Siamese Cats For Sale in India

India is a growing market for purebred cats. That must be a natural consequence of the growth in their economy and greater ties to western economies. The India nation is becoming more westernised it seems to me. Beware of the lifestyle in the west! It ain't all that good.

Anyway, as an example of how the lifestyles are changing in India you can find purebred cats for sale on the internet. The Persian seems to be the most common purebred cat. The Siamese is also advertised. I find it interesting - the attitude of the Indian people towards purebred cats. Rudolph a contributor to my website keeps Persians and they are good rat catchers! Persons in America just like to sit around looking pretty. I prefer the working purebred cat.

Siamese Cats for sale in Mumbai, India

These kittens are chocolate pointed traditional Siamese (Applehead). The asking price is 10000 Rs but negotiable. At the time of this post 1000 rupees is worth about $22 (USD). Cheap. This must be because of the exchange rate. Purebred cats in the US will cost in the order of $400 - $1000.

This breeder does not ship internationally and accepts cash.

An interesting point is this. These are purebred Siamese cats but as far as I know there is no cat association in India so they can't be registered.

Chocolate Point Siamese Cat Nome

I have got to show you Nome, a fine chocolate point Siamese cat. The photo shows the chocolate points perfectly and the profile of Nome is almost perfect under the breed standard. Under this standard there should be no nose break (for the modern Siamese cat). This means the line in profile should be straight or without a break between the forehead and end of nose in profile.

I think that this is a really nice photo. Nome seems to be what I would call a classic Siamese (Thai cat). Out of curiosity the breed standard from TICA (they register the Thai cat) is on this page. See also Thai cat breeders.

Comparison between lilac and chocolate point Siamese

This is a really nice photo to show the differences in pointing color. The difference between lilac and chocolate is very noticeable as can be seen in these photos.

But I think a couple of things need to be noted. The difference between lilac and blue can be subtle sometimes and pointing color does vary depending on the breeding of the individual cats concerned.

These are modern Siamese cats but not too slender it seems to me.

Lilac pointing is a dilute chocolate pointing.

Chocolate Siamese

This is a picture of a chocolate Siamese. The cat is a modern Siamese cat. Perhaps the photo was taken at a cat show. It looks like it. In which case this cat is a purebred show cat.

I can see the chocolate pointing on the feet but not on the face. The facial pointing in quite restricted.

You do see Siamese cats with various degrees of size of pointing.

Chocolate pointing is one of the traditional pointing colors with blue, lilac and seal.
