It's our only cat at the shelter right now and he's been adopted but they haven't picked him up yet. I'm kind of attached to him.

I'm trying to determine how to describe his color/breed.

To me, it's kind of a cinnamon point shorthair.

A red point to be techincal, though I always think of it as flame point. Sounds cooler, since 'red' isn't the color most people think of when they see that color - they think orange/cream. It's just semantics anyway.

Thanks! I'm going to go with red point shorthair. I don't know what it is but I really like colorpoint shorthairs.

Tina is a seal point lynx shorthair I think.

When it's a shelter cat, you call it what ever (i) is legal (don't say it's a
Kinkalow or tuxedo with white mittens when it's not) and (ii) is likely to attract the most attention, interest.

Red point DSH. A Colorpoint Shorthair is actually a breed of Siamese type. Breed: Colorpoint Shorthair

Tina is ? Can't really see the coat well enough to determine color but she looks like a medium longhair from what I can see.
Colorpoint Shorthair - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I know they are first cousins to Siamese. The cat pictured looks exactly like this one.

She has the same type of hair as the cat in this thread.

To my knowledge, there isn't any law regarding cat breeds here. We describe them however they appear to us. This one has already been adopted. I just like how it looks and it's personality.
