the picture where he is youngest, i just got him from the humaine society(arizona)...he had a cold, and was taken to the vet soon after i took the pic of him...you can see he has a runny noise , the poor thing..

the other pics are older, and the one is where he is 6 months, his age now. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME IF HE IS A CHOC POINIT OR SEAL POINT?

This is the difference from what I've read:

Seals have a fawn body, with dark chocolate colored points. Their paw pads are dark brown, as is their nose leather.

Chocolates have an ivory body, with milk chocolate points. Their paw pads and nose leather is a rosy brown color.
Since he doesn't have papers, he could be mixed with anything else. No matter what, he's adorable!!

Kittens can eat mostly all they want for about the first 10 months. They burn off so much energy.

He's lovely! To distinguish between chocolate and seal, you could check his paw pads. As posted my Marie, the paw pads of a seal are typically very dark (almost black), whereas the pads of a chocolate are cinnamon color with a pink undertone. I can't see the paw pads in the pictures. :)

Adorable kitten you have here! :D

If he is already this dark at 6 month old, then he is definitely a seal point. Choc is a lot lighter, where body will be ivory, and the point won't darken until 1 year old or even later.

Here is a pic of my choc girl at 7 1/2 month old. You can see how light her point is, and her body is (and will be) pure white :)

He's so cute!! What's his name?
He colors have gotten dark very quickly for 6 months. I was gonna say Chocolate Point, but I'm not 100% sure.

aww he looks like our Sammy! We found him at a shleter too. He is almost def a seal point. congrats on the new addition to your family ...

and a question for the Siamese owners here ... anyone else have a cat that "smurgles"? that is suckles on your ears or any other likely body part? Sam actually gave our daughter a kitten sized hickey once which we laughed over for days. And my earlobes became chapped for a few months until his adult teeth came in ... LOL:cool
