I know Siames color is actually dictated by a gene that's activated by cold... Which is why they're ears, face, limbs and tails are effected. If you look at a heat reading on anyone, those are usually the coldest pasts of the body. At 14 years old, that's quite old. She could just be going "grey" or there could be a change in circulation patterns. Given the age, Im votng for a normal change in coat due to aging...

Hmmm. That's interesting. I'm an applehead Lynx Point Siamese, 16 years old, and the point coloring in my face has kinda gone. My legs, ears and tail and even some areas on my back are still kinda darker, but now I look like a brown kitty, when before I kinda looked brown and grey and kinda violety.
