Introducing ourselves

Hello all! I have three lovely cats, Howie, Harper, and Coca. Howard and Harper are half-siblings (assuming diff dads) from consecutive litters. Coca is Abyssinian, and only six pounds. They range from 16 to 10 months old. The first two are part Siamese, with blue eyes. My question is this: Siamese cats change color as they grow up, right? Because when I got Howie he had the lynx point coloring, but now... well, these photos are the same cat. What would you folks call him now? Tabby? He still has his lovely blue eyes... I want to reiterate, these photos are the same cat.

cats with pointing (meezer) in the mix can change a lot when maturing.. yeti was very faintly colored as a kitten, then his moms tabby with white proudly showed up..

blue, from a different litter(same parents) was a little white ball of fluff, at 9 months his fathers lynx point stripes took hold...

yeti cat: two toes short of the record books
eons ago there must had been a creature with a roar
like a vacuum cleaner, it most likely ate cats.
smokey,yeti, pansy, violet, ember and brullie
jolene, tammi and emma the ghost kitties in the house

Yes, years ago I had cat siblings that were half Siamese, half unknown. Their markings changed considerably as they grew up.
