|List of Cat Breeds|
The flame point or red point is a rare coloration that originated in the United Kingdom. It is one of the six Siamese points.
History[edit | edit source]
In 1948, British breeder Nora Archer, with help from other breeders, started working with the Siamese breed to create flame points. Miss Ray, another breeder, worked to establish a flame pointed breed, eliminating tabby stripes and in having it recognized by cat registries. Since then, flame points have become a popular Siamese color but are still hard to acquire.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The flame point is one of the six Siamese points, closely related to the cream point. They are white with orange markings on their face, tail, ears, and paws.
