Since I was a kitten, mom and dad thought I was part siamese and part something else (probably domestic shorthair). This was substantiated by one of the vet techs calling me a flame-point siamese during my first couple of visits. Recently mom and dad were watching Cats 101 on TV and they talked about Colorpoint Shorthair and now they think this is me. Any opinions?
And what does that mean for my littermate/sister Pepper -- she's all black. See my page for a pic of both of us together.

Looks like one to me! It's so funny because all colorpoint shorthairs (flamepoint) all look very similar if you google images of clorpoint shorthairs. Mine looks almost exactly like yours and he has big blue eyes. The fact that he has a black colored litter mate is normal. some mothers have litters that have many fathers. A mother can mate with various fathers and use their sperm to fertilize eggs in the mother cat. So maybe your cat's father was siamese and the mother was red tabby? not sure. colorpoints are amazing! have fun!

Your cat is definitely a flame point (sometimes called a red-point) Siamese. Female flames are fairly uncommon but whether male or females they are always very loving, easy-going and super laid back.
