About Us

 

 

Archenland Cattery would like to thank Sandypoints Cattery, in Pennsylvania, for sharing her beautiful cats with us. Sandypoints  has been breeding Old-Style Siamese kittens for over 25 years, and is 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).

Because it is never a good idea to have too large a cattery, our catteries came into existence as a small, separate, related  catteries so that we could preserve more of the old Green Lane lineage without over-populating the Sandypoints Cattery, in one location.

We do not 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. 

Our current stud boys are a great-grandsons 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. Green Lane Sam is was a great-grandson of Grand Champion Green Lane Chulalongkorn, who was born in 1958.

Our catteries are located in Southern California, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Colorado. 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 catteries.

Note: We do NOT Ship!
Kitten clients must first visit the cattery
and accompany their new kittens home!
