The Siamese color pattern is a recessive gene, which means both parents must carry it for their kittens to have it. If the mother had been color pointed, all the kittens would be color pointed. But since she was black, one of her parents was color pointed.

Here's some more info on color points....

The Himalayan gene has been in the general cat population for decades. Siamese were extremely popular in the 1950s and 60s when not many people spayed or neutered.
