Chocolate point Siamese cats introduced by GCCF Siamese Judge, Mrs J Starr.
The Chocolate point Siamese cats are one of the oldest of the recognised colours within the breed and are very popular as a pet.
The first Chocolate points were thought by breeders to be just poor Seal points and the Chocolate point was not recognised as a separate colour until the 1950s.
A good Chocolate point is a creature of great beauty, with a coat of warm ivory and points of milk chocolate. The points colour is often patchy & the colour has many variations, some Chocolates are almost as dark as Seal points but ideally this is a totally different colour.
Although some cats show shading on their bodies when they are quite young, many Chocolate points keep their beautiful pale coats all of their life.
Chocolate point Siamese cats are one of the better known colours of Siamese cat. We have included different chocolate point Siamese pictures on this page. They include different shades of chocolate as not all chocolate points have exactly the same colour. Chocolates are occasionally mixed up with Seal points by non cat breeders. At first glance they are similar but the colour on their points is lighter and they tend not to be as shaded as seal points.
Chocolate point Siamese cats have a milk chocolate coloured face, tail and legs. Their bodies are an off white colour and occasionally display some light shading on the flanks and back. Like all Siamese cats they have blue eyes. The coat texture of a chocolate point is very soft.
