Siamese Cat Names Inspired by Color
The Siamese cat is a pointed breed, which means Siamese have lighter-colored bodies with darker “points” of color on the extremities (head, tail, and feet). Siamese cats come in four traditional colors—seal point, chocolate point, blue point, and lilac point. In some breed standards, Siamese also come with cinnamon, fawn, red, and cream points.
