Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

I'm confused as to what point siamese I am. All I can tell is that I'm handsome. (Elizabeth: Yes you are. Now stop bragging, please.)

    Hello, Prince Tai (love your name). You're definitely a very handsome seal point Siamese! Mom had a Siamese cat when she was growing up who looked a lot like you. Purrs, Felix :)

    Ah, but hang on a sec. Look at your paw pads. If they are really dark then yes, you are seal. But if thay are a cinnamon brown color you're likely a chocolate point. If your paw pads are like mine and kinda in between, just pick the one you'd rather be. MOL I'm chocolate. Either way, we're both GORGEOUS! =;

    I am only half siamese...and the other half domestic long hair. Would I be considered a certain point? Mommy is new to Siamese cats.

    Cheyanne is correct, Krystal. You look like a Lynx Point. And you're a cutie, too!

    Krystal, I think Pebbles might have been saying Prince Tai was a seal point. I think you, Krystal, look like a lynx point in the face, as the others said. I can't tell, but your tail looks solid color -- is it, or is it striped? Your points will probably continue to darken, so it will be more evident as you get a few months older. You're a cutie, no matter what. edit: Oops, sorry I didn't see your post on this second page, Krystal. We all see tabby-like stripes in your face and that's why we're saying lynx point. However, I just checked a "breed" handbook we have -- not sure that it's the last word, though. There are different feline associations that have different standards, and some "breeds" aren't recognized by all associations. Anyway, this book lists "Siamese tabby point" as a variety of Siamese, but has the "lynx point" listed among the Colorpoint Shorthairs. Too complicated! I think they're the same thing, it just depends what feline association is setting the standards. Either is a mixture of Siamese and tabby, which is what you look like -- see the tabby striping in your face?

    A seal point. And Mr Echo: You are also a seal point. Looking at your pictures, there is no way you could be chocolate point--chocolates are noticeably lighter. Seal points are my favourite kind.

    I would say Prince Tai is a seal point. Us pointed cats come in so many shades, sometimes it\'s hard to say which we are. Like me, it\'s hard to say if I\'m blue or lilac pointed, but either way, I\'m a handsome guy with a laid-back and mellow personality; how could anyone resist falling in love with me?;)

    What about me? I mean, I know I am a Lynx point, but is it Seal or Cream?
