CP is a recessive, which means the parents only have to carry/have that recessive - they do not have to be colorpoint.
The shorthair American Curl male that was the foundation male for my Curl line was a seal lynx point, out of a brown tabby outcross sire and a brown tabby mother - both had the recessive for colorpoint
My favorite example is the vet who was startled to see two colorpoint kittens out of a solid black American Curl mom (a grand-daughter of the very first american curl - shulamith who was solid black but carried for colorpoint) and one of my colorpoint American Curl males.
