**we have babies**
Thanks for stopping by to see my lovely purrs.I run a small cattery on the sleepy Kwazulu Natal South Coast. I love cats of all colours and creeds but I have a special soft spot for the nature of the Siamese, Orientals and Peterbalds that rule our household.
In 2009 we set out to breed the Siamese cats that had stolen my heart as a child. However we were met with reluctance by local breeders to sell us a stud, and that is when we cast our attention abroad to find a stud. It was a fateful day when, after scouring hundreds of pictures of beautiful Siamese kittens that it was in fact an adult white Oriental in Hungary that I immediately connected with. I phoned, emailed, Facebooked and sms'd his owner simultaneously just so as to not lose out on this boy that had stolen my heart, and a few months later my beautiful boy, Okonor Tejfel from Budapest arrived and became the foundation of our breeding not only Siamese, but beautiful Oriental kittens.
2011 marked an exciting new chapter in our breeding, with the addition of our first Peterbald. We had always seen the Peterbalds as an extension of the Siamese and Orientals we cherished, and it was a natural progression. One that was accelerated when it was by chance that we met Nasauda (meaning the black queen). Nasuada did what comes naturally to Peterbalds, and that was usurp every ounce of my attention and instantly steal my heart. In 2012 we imported a beautiful Peterbald stud to add to the small gene pool in South Africa and Ideal Cat Einstein joined us all the way from Lithuania.

We feel very strongly against cats in cages, and for this reason our girls are free to roam the house, and our studs have specially designed quarters where they can spend some "private time" with their lovely girls. We love and honour our cats, to the extent that our cattery is named after two girls that stole our hearts who sadly passed the Rainbow Bridge too early. Minki and Lucy Liu, you were two beautiful girls who loved us with all your hearts and we will forever miss you (yes, we even miss Lucy Liu opening the kitchen cupboards and stealing noodles!!!).
Our vision as breeders is to:
·Produce quality, healthy purebred Siamese , Orientals and Peterbalds
·Breed Siamese, Orientals and Peterbalds whose stunning features are only surpassed by their beautiful temperaments
·Show our cats to ensure that we are breeding according to the standard of points
·Further enhance the aesthetics and health of the Siamese, Oriental and Peterbald breed in South Africa
·Assist in the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of Siamese, Orientals and Peterbalds in the region
·Ensure the happiness of every one of our kittens by finding them loving, responsible forever homes
We breed Siamese, Orientals and Peterbalds in solids, torties and bi-colours and are dedicated especially to promoting and improving the White Orientals (see "that Darn Cat" page for more info).
