We are an old-style Siamese cattery located in Albuquerque, NM. Helping to preserve the Old-Style Siamese that I love so much has always been my life-long dream! I have had one to love for most of my life. Kitten clients tell us that they have had difficulty locating Old-Style kittens with authentic Siamese pedigrees. This sad situation is due to the fact that the Old-Style is on the verge of extinction since it lost favor in the show rings of the major cat fancies. Now that is changing, since The International Cat Association (TICA) has granted the Thai breed Championship status (as of May, 2010). Now they can be seen in the show hall side-by-side with their Modern Siamese cousins.
Diabrillante is a proud member of PREOSSIA, (Prestwick-Beresford Old-Style Siamese Breed Preservation Society) the club that first named and defined the Old-Style Siamese and that is still the only club in North America exclusively devoted to preserving Old-Style Siamese.
Our immediate breeding goal is saving the old lineages and keeping them healthy. Many of the old Siamese genes and lineages have been lost and can never be recovered. Our kittens are registered with TICA (The International Cat Association) and CFF (Cat Fanciers' Federation). They have pedigrees dating back to the introduction of Siamese to the United States (and beyond that, to the United Kingdom). You will receive a five generation pedigree of each of your kittens parents, along with your kitten.Inquiries via email are welcome, as are questions via email about the cats, the cattery, and the Old-Style Siamese breed.

We will try to answer any further questions you may have.
Note: Please keep in mind that although we would love to reply to your questions instantaneously, that isn't always possible due to the high volume of inquiries. We are small hobby breeders who have lives and jobs just like everyone else (as well as cats to take care of). This is not a business or a financial endeavor; this is a labor of love to ensure the continuation of the old-style Siamese. We want to make it possible for people who love this breed to continue to be able to find a new kitten when the need arises. We ask for your patience.
I bring all of my kittens into the world
in loving memory of my sweet Timmy, in
the hope that the Old-style Siamese
(TICA Thai) may once again
become available to everyone
who needs one as much as I do.
