Hello :) I'm Stockhart; I'm new to this forum, so I just thought I'd introduce my two girlies! They're two seal-point siamese called Puggy and Beebop ^^ I got them in late January, so they're about 5 months old?

Anyway, I had them out playing on my bed, and they were hiding in the sheets so I got out my camera and snapped some shots :) Not often you see them together.



This is Beebop, being curious as usual.



The two together :) Beebop's the one with the larger marking on her nose.


Beebop making a run for it =P

Thank you ^^ I'm just not at all sure whether they're Siamese or Himalayan :lol:
Do you think you could help me out?

they'd be siamese. i don't think that there are technically himalayan rats (someone please correct me if i'm wrong). himalayan CATS on the other hand, are the rounder, long-haired siamese looking ones.

since the dark points on siamese and himalayans are caused by heat-sensitivity, did you know that you could shave an animal that carries the siamese gene and they would be darker in that spot if it wasn't kept warm while the hair grew back? :D lol.

Himis have very small points. They're basically PEWs with a dash of color on their nose. Smeezes, on the other hand, have much larger and darker points :) Your girls are smeezers.

Oh, thank you :D I was really unsure; half the people I asked said himi and the other half said siam., so I was pretty confused :?
