The different types of Siamese cats have distinct markings and coloration, and knowing how to tell these apart is a great skill for breeders, owners, and enthusiasts. Check out some of these amazing and beautiful animals.

The Siamese has really changed looks over the last few decades. Once a rather cobby, apple-headed feline, show breeders have bred toward long, elegant lines and wedge-shaped heads. There are also colors that are variations of the traditional pointed color pattern, resulting in several Siamese types.

Wedgie

An interesting fact: All Siamese kittens are white at birth. The points begin to show in a few weeks and become fuller over the coming months. That's when you can distinguish which color a kitten will be.

Seal Point Siamese

Seal points are fawn-colored on the body with rich, dark brown points that continue to darken with age. There's also a snowshoe Siamese that is similar to the seal point, but it has white feet.

Blue Point
