Siamese kittens are born white with markings developing around four weeks of age. A heat-sensitive gene causes the coloring to develop on the cooler parts of the body, which is the result of a partial albinism gene. And Siamese cats darken as they age, showing a difference in coloring as the cat grows through adulthood.
