Cat (Felis catus)
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.


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.


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.
