Lilac point or lavender point Siamese do refer to the same breed. These Siamese have an ethereal beauty that no one can deny.
This cat has the palest coloring of the breed, with pinkish ears and very light gray-colored fur that almost has the look of frost. This leads to the lavender point’s additional nickname; the “frost point” in America. They are the lightest of the four major breed colors (Seal, Chocolate, Blue, and Lilac). This color pattern is actually the dilute version of the Chocolate Point.
Everything about a Lilac should be pale, even this cat’s eyes are paler than any other Siamese, and they ideally should be pale, china blue. Their nose leather and paw pads have a pale pink undertone, and they should have light cream or magnolia-colored (not pure white) coats, which stay pale throughout their lives.

As their name represents, Siamese cats originated from felines born in Siam in Thailand. No one can really know how they made it to the American lands during the 19th century. Luckily, the lovely breed has made its way to the country to become one of the most favorite cat breeds.
A Thai manuscript called the Tamra Maew shows a description of the Siamese cats. That book was made between the 14th and 18th centuries which suggests that Siamese cats are a very old breed.
