Red Point Siamese Cat
What Is A Red Point Siamese Cat?
Siamese cats are among the most recognizable breeds in the world. There are many variations of the Siamese cat but all of these have the distinguishing points, which are darker than the breed's base coat color. Among the many different kinds of Siamese breeds are the seal point, the blue point, chocolate point and lilac point. These four are the ones accepted by the traditional Siamese cats fanciers club. Other variations such as the red point Siamese cat and the tortoiseshell are not fully accepted in some clubs.

The Red Point Siamese Cat Variation
The red point Siamese cat is pretty much the same cat as other more traditional Siamese cats but instead of the dark chocolate or black points, they have red or orangey points. These non-traditional point patterns are only variations in color and do not affect the temperament or health of the red point Siamese cat.These new breed of Siamese cats also have the same placements of their points, in the extremities like the ears, snout, lower legs and paws, tail and scrota in most males. They also have the same or similar blue colored almond shaped eyes as the traditional Siamese cats, but these newer breeds sport the modern bodies of Siamese cats instead of the traditional.
Background Of The Red Point Siamese Cat
In the year 1948 Dr. Nora Archer acquired a male red point Siamese cat which was a product of crossbreeding a seal point male and a domestic cat which was half Siamese. The first male red point Siamese cat was then bred with a seal point female, which resulted in a litter of a tortoiseshell female who then produced the first ever-female red point Siamese cat.From then on, the history of the red point Siamese cats was made. Selective breeding resulted in perfecting the red point Siamese cat strain and eventually the breed was introduced to the general public. The recognition of the new breed of Siamese cats had a difficult time gaining admission to most certified clubs but has gathered many fans. Those who fancied the breed started their own club, which was eventually affiliated with the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy in 1967. Today, many people have accepted the red point Siamese cat as a variation of the Siamese breed. The breed variation also has many followers who adore the different shades of red that can be achieved in the new breed.
