About Us

        My husband and I have been married over 25 years, since 1988. I have a degree in fashion design/merchandising and retired from the field of Orthodontics when we began our family. I have been a stay at home Mom since the birth of our first child in 1990. My husband earned his BSEE from Northwestern, MSEE from Rensselaer, and an MBA from Kellogg (Northwestern). He is a member of a Silicon Engineering Team. They make those lovely graphics micro chips that allow you to see the best graphics. We have three children. I am proud to say they have all consistently placed on their schools highest honors list. Our eldest graduated with high honors from Cornell University. His brother graduated with high honors from RPI,  Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a Pi Kappa Phi (a philanthropic fraternity that helps children with disabilities). Pi Kappa Phi operates Push America. The boys both attended The Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science at WPI.  Mass Academy is a public high school for juniors & seniors. It is the only school in the state whose students attend a university full time as seniors in high school. Students are selected based on their outstanding academic performance and community involvement. Our daughter is also attending Rensselaer in upstate NY. She maintains honors status, is a University Google Ambassador. We expect her to do very well in her chosen field of Computer Science. She is also a wonderful artist.

My husband is from Wisconsin and worked on a dairy farm as a teen and I am from Illinois and grew up working at my families greenhouses. We moved to Massachusetts in 2004. We were both raised in homes where artistic expression was encouraged. My husband's parents are both art majors and my father combined his floriculture/horticulture degrees with his love of artistic expression to become a florist and grower. We feel our early experiences are an asset when working with our cats, we hope to bring an aesthetic beauty that is a balance between extremes to our line of Siamese.

Since I am  interested in my family genealogy  it is a natural step to also search into my Siamese's lineage. 

My breeding cat's pedigrees can be found on their respective pages of this site. They are from some very old respected lines. 

If you would like to know more then the few generations shown please email me. I have traced them back to the early 1900's.

 

I am proud to be an American. My pedigree also has deep roots in America. 

My Dutch ancestry is recorded in upstate NY in 1651 when they leased a homestead from the Van Rensselaers.

My Great great great Grandmother was Adeline Walker, her Grandfather Andrew Woods was an American Patriot. He was High Sheriff; Botetourt Co, VA

Many members of my family have also come to the aid of our country including service in, 

the War of 1812, WWI, WWII, Korean War, as well as during peace time.

 Thank you to all those who serve to preserve our rights and way of life.

 Let our soldiers know you appreciate their dedication to our nation.
