This is sissy, my new baby. Do you think the blue eyes will change?

If they're just bluish they will probably change. If they're dark blue or sky blue like a Siamese, they should remain blue.

That's what I was thinking, that she was part Siamese. I've always stayed away from Siamese, having heard they were mean (??). Certainly three of her four brothers were sort of mean acting, but she's a snuggle bunny. The orange boy wasn't mean either, but not as gentle as she is. This is why I had to find homes for the others; I was afraid they'd grow up and hurt Edward, who is the Buddha of cats, so intelligent and kind.

Odds are the color will change to probably some shade of yellow by 3-4 months. I saw this with my Seteria, who recently marked her first birthday (approximately...she was born outside.) 'tis a strange thing with cats, this having blue eyes in infancy that phase into another color. But hey, it happens with White people all the time except with their hair. Yours Truly began life as a blonde but my hair color had shifted to a medium shade of brown by the time I started elementary school.
"Baby blues" takes on a whole new meaning when you're talking cat eyes.

My Zebulon, a flame point mix, was almost white with orange points at 4 1/2 months old. By the time he was an adult, his coat showed faint bars and was cream colored. His eyes stayed sky blue. Zephyr turned from pale gray with stripes and spots to a dark gray. Her markings hardly show now.

My son was blond as a child. As the years passed his hair turned very dark brown like mine and his Dad's. You would never know he was blond as a baby and youngster. OTOH, both myself and his dad (now deceased) had very dark brown hair from birth. Genetics are quite interesting.

I'm curious who you heard that from? Someone who saw that old movie portraying them as mean? They're no meaner or less mean than any other other cat. Some are real cuddlebugs and others, like any breed of cat, are less into cuddling.

Mean acting? What were they doing? You do know that kittens can be very rough-and-tumble don't you? They almost all outgrow that in time. It's not unique to Siamese or any other breed.

You may have grown up to be just as gentle and kind as Edward is.

I had a cat whom I'm sure was part Siamese. He was gentle, loving, and tolerated other dogs and cats. I also has a white cat at the same time who had the most beautiful blue eyes I've ever seen on any creature. He loved dogs and constantly followed them around the house. He was a troublemaker and couldn't resist roughhousing with the other cat. If my dog thought it was too rough he'd bark at them from a foot away.

If they are blue because of the Siamese gene, then they'll stay blue.

If not, well..........it's wait and see.
