Siamese Points

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
At what age do you know for sure what color the points are? I think my kitties are seal point...they are 4 weeks old and have tan pads on their feet. Thanks in advance

On my monitor, those points look seal, but when I move to my own computer upstairs, they look blue ... are they brown or gray?

Usually by around 4 to 5 weeks you can tell point colors. Some breeders can tell much sooner.

Hi! What a cutie!

That kitten definitely looks like a seal point to me. I can usually tell what colors I have in a litter by 1-2 weeks of age.

Looks like a blue point on my computer.

Hmmm...I guess the picture just looks different on different monitors. On my computer, the ears look too dark to be a blue, and the feet have a brownish tinge of color to them. Seal points will have brown/tan paw pads. If the kitten is a blue point, it will have gray paw pads. Hope that helps!

I'm thinking the kitten sort of looks Chocolate Point to me. On my monitor the kitten's colouring looks more like my SunLee who is a Chocolate Point.

The picture to me reminds me of my Isis who is a blue point. But Isis has some marbleing on her feet so I had to wait till she was older to really tell and she is definitly a blue point now.

thanks for the input everyone...Im still not 100% sure!! I guess I will have to wait a little longer...still leaning towards seal if for no other reason than the pads are tan.

On my monitor, that's a blue colorpoint in the face but a seal colorpoint on its paws

When Lexus had her litter last October, there were 2 Seal Points and 3 Blue Points. The Seal Points were distinguishable almost right away but the Blue Points were harder to tell for me. The light colored fur is a different shade and the points (well, the only point color that had developed well was on the nose) were a brownish-gray. In fact, there was one - one of the males as I recall - that I was convinced was a lilac point until he was nearly 12 weeks old ... his new family recently sent me pictures and he has darkened considerably since he left my home in January. LOL

Give it another week or so and see what you think ... post another pic if you can and we'll all try again. *smile*

Looks like a blue point to me. I have that problem with my ragdolls and birmans. If their noses and paw pads are grey they usually turn out blue and brown is seal.

I would also have to say blue point.

Defintiely a bluepoint - not sealpt. I just had a litter of both bluepoints and sealpoints. Are you sure this isn't a Blaniese kitten? It looks a little long haired to be a Siames to me.

Looks like a bluepoint to me, too.

It is hard to tell from a picture and without seeing the paw pads. It has quite a bit of color already to be a blue, but the lighter paws tend to make me think it may be a chocolate.

That's what I think. SunLee is a Chocolate Point, and even her coloring looks a lot like this kitten. Also, I had a Blue Point, and his coloring was very similar, but this kitten looks more like my SunLee's coloring.
