How do you know whether a cat is cream point or flame point? I just took in some lovely kitties from a rescue and they said they were flame point but the more I'm looking around they seem like cream point. they are spending a lot of time under my bed right now so I haven't had a chance to take pictures yet.

well i would think cream is like a vanilla or tan coloring. where flame would be more of a reddish hue & darker..

These guys almost have like a peach color on their points. And really white everywhere else.

A flame point's red color, is the same as an orange tabby. just pointed without stripes or it is a lynks point.


A cream point is the lighter shade caused by a dilute gene.
Take a look at some of the calicos for the difference between cream and orange.

here's a great gallery of himalayans that jaycee told me about.
http://www.pandecats.com/gallery/g_himalayan.php

you can see many cream and flame points on about 4 pages of pictures.. some creams have very subtle points, others are more pronounced so it helps to see a range. examples: first picture, Ahmischid Dream Catcher, is a cream point.  second picture, Alescris Ms. Scarlet, is a flame point




hope this helps!

Flame & cream points can be difficult to differentiate sometimes.  Are these kittens or adult cats?  A cream point kitten tends to stay pure white for weeks before their point color starts to develop.  A flame point's coloring develops much more quickly.  Please post photos when you have the opportunity to do so and I will be able to tell you their true coloring.

Brandy was originally listed as a Cream Point Himmie, but clearly he is a Flame as he is a reddish coloring and gets darker each time I shave him down for the summers.

They look to be flame points... middle photo could be a cream point though.

Thank you! I wasn't sure, not that it really matters but I was curious. They are very sweet cats, so loving and they come right to me. There's been a bit of hissing but that seems to be improving. One of them sleeps with my 16-year-old daughter every night and just follows her everywhere she goes. I love this breed so much!
