    He is very docile and sweet. I am usually highly allergic to kittens but not him. He wants to be with us all the time. He is a kitten so not sure if that’s every kitten.

    Sigh:hearthrob:...……….sigh again:redheartpump:...............is it possible for a creature to be any cuter?

    As for the question, well, half Ragdoll then. Seriously, do you know who the dad is.

    If the mother cat was for sure 100% Ragdoll than you know his baby is part. That is all you know and more accurately without papers it is a Domestic Longhair. The father "may have lynx Siamese in it" tells me whoever told you that has no idea and is guessing off of looks. Color pointed doesn't automatically mean Siamese. lynx is the color and means little. Most cats have no specific breed ancestry and are just Domestic so that is almost guaranteed what the father was.

    I do not know much about cats so I was just trying to figure out typical markings and whatever so I can research about that specific kind.

    Wait to see if you hear from @lutece. I consider this member to be the 'resident' expert. From all that I have read of @lutec's responses to colorings/breeds/etc. I trust the comments/remarks provided!

    Some of the dad's breed description is going to depend on which association you go to. I'm most familiar with CFA, but also know some of the comparisons to TICA.

    CFA recognizes only 4 colors for Siamese--seal, chocolate, blue, and lilac--all of them solid colors. Lynx is the term for the tabby pattern in pointed cats, and it can occur in any color.
    A number of years ago CFA decided to create a new designation for Siamese cats that have other color points, including lynx points. This is the Colorpoint breed. Both Siamese and Colorpoint come in shorthair only.

    TICA recognizes all colors under their Siamese breed standard, including the lynx points.

    Both CFA and TICA recognize the Oriental breed, which has a body type similar to the Siamese but can come in any color and pattern, not only pointed. Orientals come in both shorthair and longhair varieties.

    If you thought the dad looked like a longhaired Siamese, the most likely breed would be Oriental Longhair, or Oriental Longhair mix.

    Another longhaired pointed breed is the Birman, but the body type is much stockier than the Siamese.

    He is so perfectly adorable. What a sweet face.

    I agree with @jen . Half ragdoll and who knows what else since it's a guess what dad is. Since he is mixed, he would be considered a domestic longhaired. What a little cutie he is.

    :thud: :hearthrob::redheartpump: :loveeyes: Oh boy, talk about gorgeous, what a cute kitten.:kneading: I want him! :stars:
    I agree that without certainty about the dad and breed papers you have a Domestic cat. Not sure if his fur is long or medium but likely still kitten coat so change ongoing. Lovely pale ginger and white.
    It sounds like he has some of his mum's ragdoll purrsonality if he likes to be with you all the time. Don't worry if he's every bit as bouncy and energetic as most kittens and young cats when you're not handling him- that is perfectly normal for Ragdolls.

    He is a cute kitten, but he looks very young. How old is he? Was there a reason that he had to leave his mother and litter mates so early?

    What color is the mother of the kitten?

    And when you say that the father looked like a Siamese, do you mean his color, or his head and body shape?

    The reason I ask about the color of the parents is that this kitten appears to be cream and white in color. He is not a pointed kitten. Since the colorpoint gene is recessive, if mom is indeed a Ragdoll (which is a pointed cat), dad could not be pointed in color ("Siamese" coloring). One of the parents must be non-pointed.

    Thank you
    I asked and the woman said mom is full Ragdoll and dad is lynx point Siamese. ‍♀️ He was 6 weeks when we got him. I do not know much about kittens but he had a brother I could not take. I paid her a rehoming fee. I really wanted to learn more about him. I am usually highly allergic to most cats but I am not to him which is strange.

    He was far too young to be taken from his mother (8 weeks is the absolute bare minimum, but 12-16 weeks is ideal). This honestly doesn't sound like a very reputable breeder. If your kitten's parents were both pointed cats, then he should be pointed as well, and he's not.

    You aren't allergic to him because he's a kitten. I also have a cat allergy, and I didn't start reacting to my kittens until they were around 6 months old and started shedding.
