Breeding for quality means that titles and wins are secondary to health in every
decision. I believe responsible breeding requires careful planning and research for
each and every kitten produced. I examine pedigrees looking for any weak links, and
should a health problem be discovered in any of my cats, I will immediately remove it
from the breeding program and see to it that it becomes altered. It would cause
nothing but heartbreak to knowingly breed cats that have issues with their health.
My cats and kittens should bring companionship, love and joy to their new families.
Behavior and temperament have as much to do with breeding as how they are raised.
When breeders focus on a particular physical quality they can often overlook
behavioral issues. Putting temperament on the same level as type produces beautiful
pets inside and out.
“Style” is how close a cat comes to the conformational standard set for their particular
breed. The style of Siamese which I am breeding for, is the modern, wedge or CFA
show standard. This type of Siamese is the product of many years of refinement
through selective breeding. There is an elegance in this style of Siamese that I am
drawn to. Many cats have several desired characteristics, the hard part is to get it all
in one animal!
Kittens and retired adults are available on a limited basis. I try to carefully match
kittens/cats with the adoptive families and I do reserve the right to refuse to sell to
individuals if I feel it will not be in the best interest of the feline.
I will ask about you, your family, other pets (past and present), your veterinarian and
living situation. Why do you want a Siamese?
I breed Siamese for the love of the breed and those wonderful blue eyes.

I Breed and show CFA registered Siamese exclusively. Always striving for the perfect Siamese (with God's help) as set forth by the CFA standard:
GENERAL: the ideal Siamese is a medium sized, svelte, refined cat with long tapering lines, very lithe but muscular. Males may be proportionately
HEAD: long tapering wedge. Medium in size in good proportion to body. The total wedge starts at the nose and flares out in straight lines to the tips
of the ears forming a triangle, with no break at the whiskers. No less than the width of an eye between the eyes. When the whiskers are smoothed
back, the underlying bone structure is apparent. Allowance must be made for jowls in the stud cat.
SKULL: flat. In profile, a long straight line is seen from the top of the head to the tip of the nose. No bulge over eyes. No dip in nose.
EARS: strikingly large, pointed, wide at base; continuing the lines of the wedge.
EYES: almond shaped. Medium size. Neither protruding nor recessed. Slanted towards the nose in harmony with lines of wedge and ears.
NOSE: long and straight. A continuation of the forehead with no break.
MUZZLE: fine, wedge-shaped.
CHIN and JAW: medium size. Tip of chin lines up with tip of nose in the same vertical plane. Neither receding nor excessively massive.
BODY: medium size. Graceful, long, and svelte. A distinctive combination of fine bones and firm muscles. Shoulders and hips continue same sleek
lines of tubular body. Hips never wider than shoulders. Abdomen tight.
NECK: long and slender.
LEGS: long and slim. Hind legs higher than front. In good proportion to body.
PAWS: dainty, small, and oval. Toes: five in front and four behind.
TAIL: long, thin, tapering to a fine point.
COAT: short, fine textured, glossy. Lying close to body.
CONDITION: excellent physical condition. Eyes clear. Muscular, strong, and lithe. Neither flabby nor boney. Not fat. (but always with regard for
health and temperament first and foremost.
I am feeding soft food in the morning and in the evening with raw meat added in the mornings. Grain free kibble is my preference to keep
available between meals. They always prefer the soft. I feel it is important for them to get plenty of moisture in their diet since cats don't seem
to like to drink as much as they should. This can lead to a strain in the kidneys and urinary problems leading up to Chronic Renal Disease.
I also add more vitamins to their meals with Platinum Performance Feline.
Please do not declaw your cats. It is a mutilating surgery equal to chopping off all of the last digits of your fingers. CFA doesn't allow cats to
be shown if they are declawed. Please provide cat trees and scratching posts for your cats. If you are concerned about your furniture keep a
squirt bottle handy and you can squirt them if they try to scratch on it. It is also wise to choose smooth fabrics for your furniture covering.
Smooth leather, plastic, faux leather, micro-suede, etc, do not seem to attract cats to scratch, like nubby textured furniture upholstery.
For cat litter, I recommend natural, organic types of litter. I use wood pellets myself but there are clumping types that are made from natural
products like corn, and wheat. They won't obstruct digestive systems if ingested like silica based clumping cat litters.
