Did you know that all siamese cats are white when they are born? They are! They slowly develop their "points" as they age. The color is darkest in areas where their body heat isn't as warm.
I have 2 siamese cats, a flame point (Opie) and a seal point (Lily). I talk a lot about Opie, so today I want to talk about Lily.
Here is a picture of Lily when she was still a kitten. See how light her fur was back then?
(P.S. I gave her the yarn for the photo and took it away right after I took the picture. Cats should never play with string because they can swallow it.)
Now that she is 3 her fur has gotten very dark. It was really interesting to be able to slowly see it change color over time.
This is my newest painting inspired by Lily.
She's a "nervous siamese". Very jumpy, but we love her and spoil her all the same.
