These two little ones were found in a feral colony and I wanted to ask if they are lynx point. They look exactly like their mama, who was truly feral and wouldn't let anyone near her. But these two are the most affectionate little ones I've ever met. A very nice lady found the four week old litter, and she fed and socialized the kittens for about 4 or 5 weeks until we came in the picture. (There were two orange tabbies in the litter, one grey tabby, and these two, so we assume the dad was a tabby and the mom was a lynx point or a lynx mix.) We were told they were twin girls, but they ended up being boy/girl, and boy are they fun. They're both very healthy aside from having fleas and worms, which are now gone after several weeks of treatment. Based on these pictures, does anyone have any insights on what type of kittens we have? We already love them so much it's insane, and any and all info would be welcomed. These kittens have been a godsend. Thank you for sharing any insights! /loving family +2

Lynx point? Or Siamese ? Havana brown mix? NEW
by: Anonymous

I adopted a black cat, she has greenish eyes.
A white spot on chest. Same look as Havana brown.

Daddy is Siamese lynx mix, solid silver blue with dark grey lynx point markings.

The babies have little chocolate faces shaded into black and with lynx / tabby point markings. I would describe them as dark chocolate tabby? Lol I don't know. Trying to find homes for them. Very talkative and playful. As are the parents!
Two girls are lilac point right now with some cream starting to form around nose. Blue eyes short hair.

Beautiful Meezer NEW
by: Rose

They look just lie my babygirl that I adopted from my local animal shelter. My Rhaja is a Lynx/Tortie point. Most Lynx point's have the M on their forehead. My girl is so sweet, loving and playful but not vocal like other Meezer's. I hope you enjoy your babies as much as we do ours because they simply are a great breed!

Thanks anyway NEW

She didn't ask if they were pure bred, especially since that is meaningless to most true cat lovers. But thanks for weighing in

Cat facts NEW
by: Anonymous

What you have are cats! ;) despite what the general public thinks, lynx point is just a color, not a breed, and certainly not siamese, and can occur in ANY cat. This includes pointed and snowshoed cats ( pointed color that is broken up by white markings, commonly seen in ragdolls) Siamese, on the other hand is an oriental breed and is not to be confused with color. Because most people don't understand these traits are found in almost all domestic breeds of cats, people are often scammed into paying a lot of money for a cat who looks like a ragdoll, or siamese, but is really just a random breeding of cat. female cats can become pregnant by Multiple male cats in a single litter. The chance these kittens, given the mom is feral, are purebred of anything is slim to none. That aside both your kitties are very beautiful! The lynx point and orange tabbies are my favorite :)

Similar Situation... NEW
by: Connie Q

I too have adopted a " lynx point" from humane Soc., however,
After getting a good look at the spots ( nice pattern) on his sides and back, stripes on the legs, cream body, dark grey and black paw bottoms and tail rings...I'm not at all sure. I looked up lynx point siamese with spots, and got pictures of " snow bengals"! You may want to look at those too. Amazing what you find in the shelters these days, as one of mine IS a Bengal! My new boy is exhibiting some of the same characteristics. Here's what to look for: long slender body, long neck and head, almond shaped eyes, and especially " leg flaps. A Bengal has an extra flap of skin attached between their back legs and side belly area...it's a dead giveaway, but usually shows up around 8-10 months. And the snow bengals can have blue eyes. My little guy looks very much like like your spotty twin, and most Siamese don't have the dark eyeliner, and dark lines from the eyes to the side of the nose. So my guess is Bengal. Will send photo later...:)

lynx point NEW
by: Kevin

Lynx point or not they are awesome. I've got a grown cat that looked identical to them when young. She has been the best cat. Pebbles is her name and she is about 10 years old now and her tabby side is showing a little more now days. She has a vocal range that is way beyond any traditional siemese that I have and have had. I have 3 other cats, a gray tabby, a calico/tabby mix, and a siemese. When at play Pebbles at 10 years old can out run and out smart them all like its nothing and they are all younger than 4 years. She is the queen of the house. We also have a full grown akc boxer in the house and Peebles is far more than she can handle. The dog is submissive to the cat in pretty much every way.
Anyway, they are awesome cats and I hope they are all that mine has been to me all these years. She is as loyal and loving as she could possibly be.

Look like my cat when she was a kitten. NEW
by: Anonymous

I'm not sure as I've had people tell me what they think my cat is. Her mother looked like a tabby but not sure.

So far, I've heard my cat is:
Blue Point Tabby/Siamese
Lynx Point/Siamese

I'm sorry that I cannot be of much help, but maybe this will give you an idea of what possibilities your kittens may be.

Pictures Please!
by: my2wins

Cindy, I'd love to see pictures of your two. I gave a lot of thought to the earlier Burmese comment, and I've been looking at pictures online, and came across some Tonkinese pictures that seem somewhat closer than Burmese. But I can't really tell since all the pictures differ so much. I wish there was some defining characteristic of siamese vs burmese vs tonkinese. Either way, I'd love to see your picts. (I wish I could post more pictures here but I can't figure out how. Maybe I'll post a new page with updated snaps of mine). As they are getting older, they are looking slightly less round faced, and more siamese (at least to me). It will be interesting to see how things play out they're full grown. They weigh 4 pounds each now, so they've doubled in weight since the last picture I posted.

They look like mine
by: Cindy

I also adopted two kittens that appear to be Lynx Point Siamese. We know that the father was a Siamese/Tonkinese mix but aren't sure about the mother. One of the kittens was a long haired lynx point and one a long haired tabby. My two are short-medium haired lynx point with gorgeous blue eyes. They are so much fun!

Apple heads?
by: my2wins

Yes, for sure they are now kept indoors only. I wouldn't dream of letting anything happen to these two adorable creatures.

I looked up Burmese pictures and my kittens do look more like Traditional (Apple-head) Siamese to me than Burmese. These pictures I submitted do make their faces look round, so maybe I'll add some other pictures if I can figure out how.

Either way, having cats is so different now than it was 20 years ago when I last had a cat (he was a Traditional Blue Point Siamese, and the love of my life).

After some research, and still doing more, I have discontinued dry food, which is so much different than what I used to do. I'm sold on raw meat (frozen or freeze-dried) or grain-free canned diet, but am still trying to get the logistics down. Dry food was so much more convenient, but after reading Dr Lisa Piersen's blog on catinfo.org, I'm a believer in removing any grains from their diet, and getting their diet to as close as to what nature intended as possible.

My last cat lived to 21, and that was back in the 80's and 90's when I was in high school and college, and I knew very little about optimal cat care. Now that I know how critical diet is, my goal with these two is to far exceed that, if at all possible.

Another tip I read on that site was not to over vaccinate. And never let your cat be injected with "killed" vaccines which are riskier than live. It takes A LOT of work to figure it all out but it seems well worth it to me to understand for yourself about what vaccines are worth doing, and which ones should be avoided. And of course what diet is healthiest.

A month ago I thought dry food was healthiest, now I know better. Just want to pass it on. :}

Lynx Point
by: Beatrice

OH, they are really beautiful and look so sweet and cute and cuddly, I just know from the photos that they have such wonderful loving temperaments. It's hard to know what they are, but there is definitely tabby, from the rings on the tail. They do remind me of a Lilac Burmese, I would reckon they have Burmese genes as opposed to Siamese, so if you are asking me to give you an opinion on the photo, I would reckon, some tabby and Lilac Burmese, the shape of the head is not really Siamese, but then again the cats in the US are slightly different to the ones over here in Europe. Also there are more cats with Burmese gene in them in the US than in Europe, as this cat arrived over in 1936 from Burma to the Western part of the US and I have a feeling that there are quite a lot of feral cats today with the Burmese gene.

Hope this helps.
