Description of Colorpoint Shorthair

´╗┐The Breed History

Siamese cats were crossed with other breeds such as the American Shorthair and Abyssinian to develop new non-Siamese colors such as solid red point, solid cream point, red-lynx point and chocolatetortie point. There are other additional point colors and patterns (16 in all). CFA registration occurred in 1974. Only Siamese outcrossing is allowed (book closes in 2019 for CFA).

Physical Characteristics

Weight: Female 6-8 lb (2.5-3.5 kg), male 8-12 (3.5-5.5 kg)

Coat: Glossy coat is very short with fine hair texture and lies close. Body of the coat is off-white in color with subtle shading which tends to darken as the cats age. The pointing and coat type are exactly the same as the Siamese; just the colors differ. Leather and paw pad pigmentation should be in sync with the coat coloring.

Eyes: Almond shaped medium sized eyes are close set, though greater than one eye width apart. Eyes are colored sapphire blue.

Points of Conformation: Siamese in conformation, though a slightly more muscular build is evident due to early outcrossing with American Shorthair. Head is long, a tapered wedge, with no stop and a straight profile. Ears are large and pointed, and their outer margin follows the wedge of the face in a straight continuation. Nose is long and straight. Body and limbs are lithe. Feet are oval and small. Neck is long and slim. Tail is long, fine, and tapers to a point.

Grooming: Coat is low maintenance except for periodic light brush or bath.
