Cat becoming darker during winter?
Siamese cats (and cats of similar breeds) tend to become darker during winter. Then, if a cat looks nothing like a siamese cat but becomes darker during winter, does it mean it is a siamese mix?

Not exactly,quite a few become darker during the winter because they grow more fur for their thick winter coat.
It does not mean anything to their breed whatsoever.

You have this BACKWARDS. The point colouration reactions to cool not heat which is why the colouring is only on the extremities and why kittens are born white. In winter the points would be LIGHTER not darker.
Less than 3% of cats are a breed and pedigreed kittens are most often sold ALTERED. If your cat has pointed markings that doesn't mean it's Siamese or part Siamese. Thousands and thousands of domestics - no breed cats - with pointed markings.
