Each Tortie colour variety has a different name because the colurpoint pattern, so there are :
SEAL TORTIE POINT , CHOCOLATE TORTIE POINT , BLUE TORTIE POINT , LILAC TORTIE POINT , CINNAMON TORTIE POINT .

Tail may be like lynx point, but may also have tortie markings, including on tip of tail. Points patched with red and/or cream over the tabby pattern. Distribution of patching on the points is immaterial. These cats tend to resemble lynx points more thantortie points.
The goal of the Thai breeding is the traditional type of the Siamese. Any changes of type that might imply a hybridization by extraneous breeds (e.g. woolly coat, pronounced cheeks, definite stop, round eyes) are undesirable and to be considered as a severe fault.
