Cousins to the Siamese, the Colorpoint Shorthairs come in 16 different point colors, including untraditional colors such as cream, lynx, red and tortoiseshell. They are playful, but also love to lounge around the house. The Colorpoints do not adapt well to strangers even though they do demand attention. They don’t handle changes to their environment well either. These cats are capable of making over 100 vocal sounds and unusual meows. The males are very territorial and will fight other cats if they feel threatened or that their space has been invaded.
This breed is known to be highly intelligent, affectionate, playful, and loyal to their people.
A Big Thank-you to Sophie_Kitty for these great photos of a Cinnamon Point Oriental Shorthair/Siamese.
