What is a Siamese Cat?
Siamese cats are one of the oldest and most recognizable breeds of domestic cats. They have a distinctively slender, graceful body type with an elegant face that features large, almond-shaped blue eyes and pointy ears. The coat is usually cream or light tan color with darker points on the muzzle, paws, legs, tail and ears.
Do Siamese Cats Change Color?
The short answer is yes: Siamese cats do change color in certain circumstances. This occurs because they possess a gene mutation called albinism that causes their fur to darken over time due to exposure to sunlight or other sources of UV light. This phenomenon is known as ‘pointing’ and it can result in some pretty unique coat patterns depending on how much exposure your cat has had. In addition to this natural form of pointing, there are also several methods for artificially changing the colors of Siamese cats such as dyeing or bleaching their fur.
Why Do Some People Want Their Cats To Change Color?
People often want their cats to change color for aesthetic reasons—they might think it looks cool or just want something different from what everyone else has! There’s no doubt that a differently colored cat can be eye catching but it’s important to remember that this process isn’t without risks; potential health risks may include skin irritation due to chemical agents used in artificial coloring processes as well as damage caused by excessive UV radiation if your pet spends too much time outdoors without proper protection (such as sunscreen). Additionally, artificial dyes may fade quickly depending on the quality so you should be aware that frequent touch ups maybe required if you choose this route!
