About Us


Sandypoints Cattery has been breeding Old-Style Siamese kittens for over 35 years. We are a small home cattery; our females and kittens are never caged and are well socialized. Our cats are directly descended from the famous (in its day), old Green Lane Cattery. The Green Lane Cattery never modernized its lines to the Show-Style type of Siamese, but just ceased to exist in the early to mid sixties, as far as we can determine (we are always looking for more information). 

We do not offer stud service, inbreed or line-breed, as we feel that these practices are detrimental to the health of our very healthy cats. We intend to keep it that way. 

We have one girl and one stud boy who are great-great-grandchildren of Green Lane Sam, the last important cat from Green Lane Cattery (an important cat is one that generates lots of descendants that survive to the present day). Sam was born 1964; his last litter was born in 1976. Sam is a great-grandson of Grand Champion Green Lane Chulalongkorn, who was born in 1958.

Our other two stud boys are great-great-great-great-grandsons of Green Lane Sam from two other separate branches of Sam's lineage. Our second girl is from excellent, authentic Old-Style lines, and although she most likely has Green Lane antecedents, they are not recent enough to appear on an eight generation pedigree (after all, the Old-Style Siamese in the U.S. is basically descended from the original 11 cats imported from the U.K.). She brings us some of the diversity needed to keep our lines healthy when bred to our Green Lane descendants. 

Our cattery is located in the Philadelphia area. Visits to our cattery are by appointment, and even then, to serious buyers only. It has to be this way, as we are unwilling to allow anything that could adversely affect the health of the cats in our cattery.
