One of the three Sligo street strays... Sounds like my Siamese did... Smooth sleek intensely black fur. Six white spots. Each armpit, private and throat. Small boned and slender Food faddy and so intelligent. I miss my Siamese so this is a wonder to me. Although I wonder how and why she came to be a street stray. Selkie is her name; sleek and svelte as a seal .

Do you have a photo? Mix Siamese are often black, so she probably is half Siamese or less. If she has a similar body type.

fI bred Siamese and Siamese cross for literally decades and the difference is palpable.This was confirmed on another expert forum etc and never in all those years a black Siamese cross. Very happy with her and with that diagnosis made over the years she has been here

Oriental cats are non color point Siamese and can come in black. Black is often the case when Siamese mix with non Siamese.
Why out of curiosity were you breeding Siamese crosses?
