We are an old-style Siamese cattery located in Albuquerque, NM. Helping to preserve the Old-Style Siamese that I love so much has always been my life-long dream! I have had one to love for most of my life.  Kitten clients tell us that they have had difficulty locating Old-Style kittens with authentic Siamese pedigrees. This sad situation is due to the fact that the Old-Style is on the verge of extinction since it lost favor in the show rings of the major cat fancies. Now that has changed; in 2010 The International Cat Association (TICA) granted them Championship status; they are known as the Thai breed.

Our immediate breeding goal is saving the old lineages and keeping them healthy. Many of the old Siamese genes and lineages have been lost and can never be recovered. Our kittens are  registered with  TICA (The International Cat Association) and CFF (Cat Fanciers' Federation). They have pedigrees dating back to the introduction of Siamese to the United States (and beyond that, to the United Kingdom). You will receive a five generation pedigree of each of your kittens parents, along with your kitten.

Inquiries via email are welcome, as are questions via email about the cats, the cattery, and the Old-Style Siamese breed.

 We will try to answer any further questions you may have.



I bring all of my kittens into the world
in loving memory of my sweet Timmy, in
the hope that the Old-style Siamese
(TICA Thai) may once again
become available to everyone
who needs one as much as I do.
