Here at The Purrfect Cattery I get a lot of inquires asking about the difference between one kitten color from the other kitten color. So I decided to add on a "Kittens Colors Page" so everyone can actually see the difference for themselves! Also you will be able to see the difference between the Lynx Point Himalayan and the Regular Pointed Himalayans! You can also see the difference between the blue and lilac color on my Blue and Lilac Page! So if you are looking to see the difference between Kitten colors you have found the right place!!!
~Cream Point Himalayan~
The Cream Point Himalayan is the lightest Himalayan color their is. Some people even refer Cream Points as the "White Himalayan."
The Cream Point is the dilute of the Flame Point Himalayan. Cream Points have buff cream points, body creamy white, pads and nose leather coral to flesh pink .
~Flame Point Himalayan~
The Flame Point Himalayan is also know as the Red Point Himalayan. The Flame Point is actually the color point of the red gene. Flame Points are not a rare color they are actually a basic color. Flame Points should have deep orange/red points, body creamy white, pads and nose leather coral to flesh pink .
Note:ALL Himalayans no matter what color should have BLUE EYES ONLY!

Above you can see the difference between the Lynx Point Himalayan and the Regular Pointed Himalayan. The first difference is that the Lynx Point has the addition of the agouti gene. As far as outward appearance the difference is Regular Pointed Himalayans have the same color inside their ears as their points. Where as the Lynx Points have white inside their ears. Also the Regular Pointed Himalayans have the same color nose leather as their points. Where as the Lynx Points have a old rose colored nose. Also the points are usually a softer lighter color and they have the tabby pattern. You can see these diffences between the Blue Point Himalayan (Left) and the Blue Lynx Point Himalayan (Right.)
The Tortie Point Himalayans are all very unique. Their patches of red and cream can be anywhere on the points. No two Tortie Points look the same as far as where the colors lay on their points! Tortie Points have seal points with patches of red and/or cream, body creamy white or pale fawn, paw and nose leather seal brown or coral pink.
