What colour is my Scottish Fold? And eye colour/shedding questions too.

My little Yuna was not purchased with papers (other than her veterinary documents) so we are trying find out how we would describe her coat colour and pattern. From what I've seen online I'd guess that she is a seal point tabby? Her fur also seems to get lighter or darker at the tips. Any thoughts appreciated

Also, her eyes seem to be two distinct colours - blue around the pupil then a sort of pale yellow/gold around the blue. This is most apparent in indoor lighting, outside they are a very pale blueish. Will this change? Is there a technical term for this? She is 8 months old.

One other question. She used to have a 3 distinct stripes running from the base of her neck to her tail, but recently these have become more of a solid darker patch of fur. She's currently shedding a lot - is this change to do with summer/winter coats or her adult coat coming in?

Photos/kittenspam! Hope no one minds lots of pictures

In some of the photos she has slight acne around her mouth - that was resolved by giving her bottled water instead of tap. Such a princess.

She is so adorable! What's her breed? Her coloring looks lynx point to me since my Siamese has similar coloring and she is the same.

Her coat pattern is lynx point, her color is harder to determine ... take a picture of her paw pads? She's likely a seal lynx point.

Adorable.

And about her fur, all pointed cats have coats that are dependent on temperature... which is why they're born white and slowly fade to darker colors. By about one year of age your kitten should be as dark as she's going to get.

My aunt's cat started out cream colored and now her entire back is chocolate/near black colored; entirely different.

Heather! I was literally laughing out loud with this!! I was thinking the exact same thing when I scrolled through the pics!! I'd have the same reaction on my face to scary movies!!!

demichan, your kitten is just so freakin' CUTE!!! I'd call her cream or buff color tabby.
