Our Breeding Philosophy
We are a small cattery that is able to give each
cat and kitten individualized care, love and attention.
We are focused on breeding healthy, vigorous cats
and kittens with exceptional temperaments as well
as good looks. We work with all four colors. [seal,
chocolate, lilac and blue] We go to great lengths
to acquire and breed cats of high quality and are
as close to the "CFA" breed standard as
possible. We work hard at remaining a small cattery
so as not to spoil the homey atmosphere of our cattery.
This gives us the time to devote the best possible
care and interactive playtime. This treatment coupled
with a good diet insures us of keeping not only great
body conditions but excellent personalities of our
Our cats are allowed to roam freely in our home,
with the exception of the studs for obvious reasons.
I feel that socialization is of utmost importance,
consequently all kittens are born and raised in our
bedroom. They are handled by us from the minute they
are born and then handled several times each day,
and yes, at night too. The kittens remain in our bedroom
until they have been weaned and successfully completed
"potty training 101", around 4-5 weeks of
age. They are then introduced to the main living area
of our home, where they can explore and meet other
members of our cat family. Here they also meet new
people and hear all the familiar sounds of a household
at work, complete with vacuum cleaner and dishwasher
noises etc. When the time comes for them to be introduced
to their new homes, they are completely socialized
and are not traumatized by their new environment.
It is imperative for our cats to have good even temperaments.
Any new cat or kitten that comes to Minghou Cattery
must have come from a long line of healthy and well
adjusted cats. Currently all our breeding stock have
at least attained their championship status with CFA.
All of our stock has been tested negative for feline
leukemia and are tested frequently for internal parasites.
They are all internal and external parasite free.

All Minghou cats and kittens come with a written
health guarantee. All kittens come with at least their
first vaccinations and more often than not with their
second vaccinations. They also come complete with
a starter kit to include the food they like, kitty
litter and, most importantly, a toy to take with them
to their new home. All cats and kittens come with
a promise to the new family that I will be available
by telephone for any questions, concerns or problems
that may arise.
A Siamese kitten or cat is not for everyone. They
are very intelligent and vocal. They are not happy
when left alone for long periods of time. Anyone who
is interested in a pet kitten from us must sign a
firm spay/neuter agreement if the kitten is not already
altered. The kitten must always remain an indoor cat
and must never be declawed.
Sometimes we have retired adults and older kittens
available. If you would like more information please
do not hesitate to call or email us. We encourage
anyone who is interested in Siamese cats to come and
visit us and the cats. Just give us a call first to
make sure we are available and get directions to Minghou
