    Help in determining lynx point colors.

    Hi All!
    I recently discovered that my beloved "Sweet Pea" is a lynx point siamese. I have always thought her coloring was gorgeous. She recently gave birth to 3 kittens, 1 solid grey and 2 lynx point, and I was wondering if I could get some help in determing what color they are all.

    Sweet Pea was very light as a kitten, almost pure white...as she got older her grey became more defined. I was thinking she might be a "lilac" lynx?

    I have posted some pictures, the older cat is obviously mom. Then the 2 other kittens. I have fallen deeply in love with 1 of them in particularly, she was born with CH (cerebellum hypoplasia) but she is an absolute doll and is growing more strong everyday!

    The first 3 pictures are Sweet Pea, the 4th is our baby Bobbs (we call her bobbs cause she has CH and therefore bobs a lot when she moves) the 5th is also Bobbs, and the 6th is the 3 of them.

    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    With the kittens, their colors may darken more as they get older. What did their Dad look like, do you know?

    Honestly, I have never really heard of anyone breaking it down any further than "Lynx point".

    All siamese tend to get darker as they age

    I have (had) two lynx point babies myself. My late Sophie and my Espeon. Sophie looks more like your girl, whereas Espeon has a much darker body, closer to a typical siamese but with lynx points.

    Oops, missed your question -- the babies look to either be lynx points like their mama or seal points (if there is no tabby stripes).

    Please consider getting mama fixed!
