Our Background

With a deep love for cats and a professional background in law, I transitioned from being a lawyer to pursuing my childhood dream of working with animals. I have completed various courses in felinology and continue to expand my knowledge through continuous education in the field. Our journey in breeding Oriental Shorthair and Siamese cats began in 2010, and we are proud to be registered with the International Cat Association (TICA). Every cat and kitten in our cattery holds a TICA registration.

Our Cattery

Located in Ashland, Ohio, our cattery is truly a part of our home. There are no special facilities or separate buildings; our cats live with us as family members. This home environment ensures that our kittens are well-socialized and accustomed to family life. We carefully trim their nails weekly, and all our kittens are litter-trained.

Our Practices

For safety reasons, we do not allow visitors, except for those picking up their kittens. We understand concerns about scams, but our priority is the safety of our three children. Communication via email is the best way to contact us, ensuring clarity and keeping all details on hand.

Our kittens are often reserved within the first three weeks of their lives. We protect our customers financially through PayPal transactions and signed contracts. Our goal is to provide you with a healthy, beautiful, socialized, and high-quality kitten with a temperament suited to modern family life. For detailed information on pricing and the purchasing process, please visit our Pricing & Purchase Information page.

Health and Care

We do not sell kittens with breeding rights; all kittens leave us spayed or neutered, with this expense included in the price. Our breeding cats are imported from Europe or born in our cattery, featuring a unique European body structure and big wide ears. All our cats are tested for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), FIV/FeLV (Feline leukemia and immunodeficiency), and are parasite-free. We feed them premium quality food and ensure they receive vaccinations from licensed veterinarians. Each kitten visits the veterinarian at least three times before leaving us.

When they leave our cattery, all Oriental and Siamese kittens come with TICA registration, a microchip, fecal test results, FIV/FeLV test results, a rabies certificate, and a health guarantee. Because we rest our females between pregnancies, we do not produce many kittens each year. Occasionally, we offer retired cats for adoption, requiring a home without other pets or small children.
