another .. is my cat a .. lynx

I was just about to post this in debo's thread but I didn't want to hijack her thread.

However my circumstances are different because both the parents of my Saja (see attached pics) are seal points with papers. However, I haven't got my papers yet because we don't know what to register him as. I think he is lynx point. however, when i posted my original topic about this here around 6 months ago everyone said he was blue point. Now that he is older what does everyone think? I would like to get my papers.

Oh .. the people I got him from aren't breeders, they paid for a stud (who is a champ seal point) to bread with their seal. The babies were 2 blue, and mine (one additional one had died)



all imput welcomed.... .

No, I say he's not a lynx point.

Which one is yours? I see one seal point (the first pic) and one blue point (third pic). None is lynx, though the blue point has a lot of ghost markings.
But it would not be possible for two seal points to produce lynx offspring, since the lynx-gene is dominant.

all the pictures have the same cat in it, in the first picture he is about 6 months, whereas in the other pictures he is between 9 & 11 months old.

But there are two cats in some of the pictures. Are you saying that this cat:



and this:



is the same cat? Because I would say that the first one is seal and the other is blue. It might be the lighting in the photo that tricks the eye...

It's just the dark lighting in the first picture. That cat is a blue point, no doubt about it. If he were lynx he would have white "liner" on the inside of his ears. I don't see any from the pictures, but if you as the owner know he has it, then he is a blue lynx point.

WOW are they cute. They are much more Siamese looking than mine is. In the top pic the cat on the right that is a Seal Point looks exactly like Lilly's father!

It is probably so (the lighting, I mean).
But the cat can not be a lynx with no lynx parent, that is not possible. So the cat is a solid blue point, no doubt about it. He does not only lack the white inside of the ear, he should also have a pink-coloured nose with a darker border around it. That cat's nose is solid blue.
