Identity Crisis

Huh? What?! Now I'm confused....

When they first got me, the rescuer and mommy and daddy all thought I was Tonkinese. Then I went on Catster and met some REAL Tonkinese cats and asked, and lots of kitties said I was Siamese. Or a Siamese cross. So okay, I can deal.

But now...after reading this post a while ago about Siamese points on Simply Siamese, I am confused. For years, I thought I was a Chocolate Point...well, because my points are the same colour as rich, dark, velvety colour of dark chocolate - wouldn't you agree???

But I see many of my fellow meezers who are similarly coloured call themselves Seal Point!! Help me - I'm have an identity crisis!! Please, do you know what colour points I actually have???

Chocolate point Siamese generally have lighter brown points, and light brown/cinnamon coloured paw pads. Seal points have very dark brown points, and dark brown/black paw pads. To me, you look like a Seal Point applehead Meezer, or Meezer cross. You definitely aren't a classic or modern Meezer (Latte would be a classic Meezer, and Chey or Stella a modern Meezer.)

Here's what the Cat Fanciers' Association has to say about Meezer colours:

SEAL POINT: body even pale fawn to cream, warm in tone, shading gradually into lighter color on the stomach and chest. Points deep seal brown. Nose leather and paw pads: same color as points. Eye color: deep vivid blue.

CHOCOLATE POINT: body ivory with no shading. Points milk-chocolate color, warm in tone. Nose leather and paw pads: cinnamon-pink. Eye color: deep vivid blue.

BLUE POINT: body bluish white, cold in tone, shading gradually to white on stomach and chest. Points deep blue. Nose leather and paw pads: slate colored. Eye color: deep vivid blue.

LILAC POINT: body glacial white with no shading. Points frosty grey with pinkish tone. Nose leather and paw pads: lavender-pink. Eye color: deep vivid blue.

after we readed that post, we was 'afused too, but Stella helped us out - what color are your pawpads? if they is pink, you is chocolate point, if they is brown or black or dark colored, you is seal point. truthfully, you look like a seal point to us. unless you paw pads is pink. ::sigh:: it's really 'afusing.

The Meezers said...

oh yes, and Dragonheart is correct you look like an apple head like us! Apple head are the old fashioned kind wif smaller ears and noses.

Yes, I would say you are a siamese. You have the air of haughty snobbery that we meezers display when surveying our surroundings and siblings. You are siamese and are therefore royal. I would also say you are a seal point as you are a touch darker than me and I am a chocolate point.

Casey, I think you are a beautiful-point Siamese. Yep.

Chairman Mao said...

I agree with Daisy, you're a beautiful-point Siamese! Yur deffunitely a Meezer.

Now I'm a Meezer, too, but I'm a Snowshoe-Seal Point Meezer with silver paw paddies, hehehe!

Casey, I think that you are the most beautiful meezer I have ever seen. I happen to be pretty much all one color. I am buff, with a few stripes. I would have to agree with Daisy and Mao that you should call yourself a beautiful-point meezer. I mean really, have you looked in a mirror lately. You are a fox. (I mean a cat, well, you know what I mean).

Wow, Dragonheart, he is a good expert!
We have no idea what kind of seal, chocolate, blue or lilac point you are.
To us you are a beautiful, good looking, handsome, funny, wonderful cat! And that will always be your identity, so you needn't worry!
