What is a Colourpoint Shorthair?
The Colourpoint Shorthair is a man-made breed that was created by crossing Siamese cats with domestic shorthairs to create a Siamese type in new colours. Traditionally, the Siamese occurred in four colours, seal, chocolate, lilac and blue. The Colourpoint Shorthair extended those colours, to include reds, creams, torties in pointed and lynx (tabby) point.
