Hi Kelly, just caught up with this post and saw Max - do you know what breed Max is at all? The reason I ask is that we took on a rescue cat last year and his lineage is completely unknown, other than he clearly has some Oriental (Siamese?) in him. But he does look a lot like Max - but a lot darker (especially in his winter coat). I must get some image of him on here but he's still settling in and 'new' things tend to spook him a little (you know; shopping bags, coats, cameras etc....)

Great looking cat though!

Best regards, Neil.

Hi Neil,

Max is a Seal Point Siamese, which may be one of the more common breeds of Siamese. We adopted him when he was about 8 months old, so of course he has no papers for being a pure bread Siamese. But generally if they are not all Siamese they will have some non-Siamese markings.

Siamese will always have blue eyes and dark points usually with light tan body color. Max is dark for a Seal Point, though as a kitten he was very light. Seal Points have short fur coats. I believe it is not uncommon for the fur coat of some Seal Point Siamese to darken as they age. Hope this helps. If you Google Seal Point Siamese you can view a lot of sample photos of the breed.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Hi Kelly,

thanks! Yes, this is what we think "Hugo" is but, compared to our other Siamese cats (we have a Lilac point boy, and have had a Seal Point and a Ginger Spotted Oriental previously) he is a lot stockier and very much darker as you describe.

We've seen some 'American' traditional Siamese and he fits in a lot closer with those than the more typical European ones. I must get a picture and post it on here!

Thanks again and best regards,

Neil.

Hi Neil,

This is Max, less than 1 year of age in 2004. He was quite stocky then. Has thinned out in his old age.



Dynax 7, Film

This is Max in 2012 after a brief encounter with my son's cat (note loose fur around his ear).

Max, with Animal Eye AF, close focus.



Sony A7III, FW ver. 3,
Zeiss Batis 40mm f2, 1/40 f2.2 ISO 4000

This was a shot of Max using the new Animal AF. Locked on his left eye. Shot at f2 very close, just for testing, Normally should be stopped down for more depth, but this is shows the camera focused accurately. He also could have used a little grooming for loose fur etc.

Hi does look like Hugo's long lost brother - right down to the loose fur!

I'll have to try and get a similar shot to compare with this on.

Best regards, Neil
