The Lilac point Siamese cats breed profile was contributed written by Di Brown of Firousi Siamese, Di Brown is a GCCF Siamese cat judge.
Lilac Point Siamese were first recognised in the 1960s, until then they had been thought to be poor blue points. They are the result of adding the blue (dilute) gene to chocolate and so are “diluted” chocolate points, they can exhibit various shades from dark to pale, but they must not have a blue or brownish overtone.
Lilac Point Siamese should have frosty grey colour with a slightly pinkish overtone, on their face, ears, tail and legs, and their body colour should be a warm-toned magnolia. This breed colour tends to have the clearest coat of all the colours of Siamese with little or no darker shading to the body. The texture can be somewhat softer than the other colours but it should be short and lie close to the body. The eye colour should be a brilliant sapphire blue, which set against the rest of the cat gives an almost ethereal appearance. The temperament tends to be the sweetest and gentlest of all the Siamese.
Lilac point Siamese cats are one of the more popular colours of Siamese. We have various lilac point Siamese pictures on this page including old style and the more modern style Siamese. You will also be able to see the slightly different shades of lilac on the different cats. Lilac points are one of the lightest most subtle colours of Siamese cat. Very often you will find even experienced Siamese breeders confuse the darker lilac point Siamese cats with the caramels points. The differences being very subtle.
