The term Colourpoint refers to a coat pattern in cats in which the limbs (face, ears, underside of legs and tip of tail) are darker than the rest of the body. However, not limited to felines, as it is also found in some other mammals, like gerbils and rabbits.

The cats Colourpoint have several notable features:

  • are born with a smooth or very light coat;
  • they are cats with blue eyes, even as adults;
  • tend to darken over the years;
  • may temporarily change color in certain situations.
