Wow! LOL Thanks, everyone! Such a list of responses, this is a great ego-booster!
He doesn't have common markings, at least not in my experience (my sister has a cat that looks identical without the white socks), but I wasn't thinking he was 'rare' either. He has the markings of a "lynx-point" but is only half-Siamese. Siamese is my favorite breed, they are so chatty and friendly, very clever, they bond with people. So many good points about the breed, IMO.
He looks like a boy because of the big cheeks. When they have the chance to mature before they are neutered, they get big cheeks due to hormones. Females tend to have a more slender and feminine face.
He is SUCH a love, too, not only is he gorgeous but he adores people and loves to cuddle. It's like he tries to kiss me on the lips, he pushes his mouth right on mine (it's too weird so I pull away but it does make me laugh, "Geez, Cash, I don't wanna make-out here!"), he loves to have his cheeks and forehead kissed machine-gun-style (really quick little kisses).
He fetches toys, he loves the laser-pointer. He fetches the rubber ducky right out of the bathtub, when it has 2 inches of water in it. I have a video of that, I should upload it.
