Flame (Red) Point Siamese Cats
Flame Point Siamese
The Flame Point Siamese cat (also known as the Red Point), along with related colors apricot and cream (its dilute form), were introduced into the Siamese breed in the UK during the 1930s. Seal point Siamese were bred with red tabby or tortoiseshell British Shorthair cats that carried Orange genes.
It can be quite difficult to tell the red variations apart. All have creamy-white bodies and warm, reddish-orange points. It is difficult to breed cats without tabby stripes, but this should be kept to a minimum.
Flame points are not officially recognized by the CFA and are instead considered Colorpoint Shorthairs. However, they are recognized as Siamese cats by TICA and GCCF. We, of course, love them either way!
