Sandypoints Old-style Siamese
On May 1, 2010 the Old-Style Siamese was accepted by The International
Cat Association (TICA) for championship status. Once again, the Old-Style
Siamese has returned to the show ring under the name, "THAI."

About Old-Style Siamese History of the Sandypoints Lineage About Us For Kittens on the West Coast
Sandypoints Cattery is a small cattery in Pennsylvania that has been raising CFA and (more recently) TICA-registered Old-Style* Siamese kittens for over 35 years. Our kitten clients tell us that they have had difficulty locating Old-Style kittens with good pedigrees that are not inbred. This unfortunate 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.
Although we love the Show-style Siamese-- they have the same wonderful personalities as the Old-style-- we do not breed them at this time. Our immediate breeding goal is saving the old lineages and keeping them healthy. Sadly, many of the old Siamese genes and lineages have been lost and can never be recovered. Our kittens are dual registered with either CFA or CFF and TICA. They have pedigrees dating back to the introduction of Siamese to the United States (and beyond that, to the United Kingdom).
Sandypoints Cattery is a proud member of PREOSSIA, (Prestwick-Beresford Old-Style Siamese Breed Preservation Society) the club that first named and defined the Old-Style Siamese and that is still the only club in North America exclusively devoted to preserving Old-Style Siamese.Inquiries via email are welcome, as are questions via email about the cats, the cattery, and the Siamese breed.

Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if we can answer any further questions you may have.
Note: Please keep in mind that although we would love to reply to your questions instantaneously, that isn't always possible due to the high volume of inquiries. We are small hobby breeders who have lives and jobs just like everyone else (as well as cats to take care of). This is not a business or a financial endeavor; this is a labor of love to ensure the continuation of the old-style Siamese. We want to make it possible for people who love this breed to continue to be able to find a new kitten when the need arises. We ask for your patience.
