Hi i am COCO and i am a 1 Year old female Seal Point Ragdoll.
I am wondering when i will be getting my full Seal color? My mouth and chin is still white and have white rings around my eyes.. is my color is only slowly developing?
Is it possible that it will stay like this? Or do i get more color when i grow older?

What a beautiful cat! In my readings, it seems that a seal point will attain their color within the first year. The markings seem to be prevalent within 6 months but get darker from 6m to a year.
