  • Q: What do Siamese cats look like?
  • A: Siamese/Balinese cats are known for their beautiful blue eyes and come in four main colors. The seal point, with dark brown (almost black) face, feet, and tail (called "points") and tan body is what most people envision when they hear Siamese. Chocolate points have lighter brown points and a whiter body. Blue points have blue-gray points and light bodies, Lilac point Siamese have light gray points and almost white bodies. In addition to the four main colors, Siamese/Balinese come in two patterns besides the traditional solid: lynx (striped) and tortie (a calico pattern). These patterns come in all of the major colors.

  • Q: Are your cats hypoallergenic?
  • A: Here's what we've found after over twenty-five years of breeding... When dealing with cat allergies, it is necessary that the allergy sufferer come in direct contact with the specific cat that is potentially being adopted. Individual cats vary in how much of the protein they carry in their saliva‚Ķ even kittens in the same litter vary. So just because you can tolerate a friend's Balinese... or even one of our cats... doesn't mean that you will not have a reaction to another cat or kitten. There truly is no such thing as a 'hypoallergenic' cat. People with cat allergies are allergic to a protein found in the cat's saliva, not the hair or dander. MANY people do better with Balinese, but not all. There are no guarantees... it depends on the individual kitten and the individual allergy sufferer. If the allergy symptoms are runny nose/itchy eyes, it may work out with a kitten carrying the Balinese gene, whether they are long or short haired. However, if someone has more serious respiratory issues, including asthma, we do not recommend adopting a cat at all.

  • Q: Will my kitten have spraying issues?
  • A: Don't worry!! Kittens, male or female, rarely have any sort of litterbox issues, provided they are spayed or neutered by 6 months of age.

  • Q: Male or female kitten?
  • A: It's all about individual personalities. We want to help our clients find the perfect kitten that suits their household and lifestyle.

  • Q: Is there a waiting list?
  • A: Yes, we have a waiting list available to those interested in adopting kittens. We work from this list when placing kittens into their forever homes, and many times, kittens are sold long before they are able to leave our home.

  • Q: How do we pickup your cats?
  • A: Since Covid began, we have delivered our kittens through 'driveway visits.' I will meet you outside in our driveway. My husband will take your carrier inside to collect the kitten while we fill out a bit of paperwork and answer any questions you might have. He'll be down shortly with the kitten and soon you'll be ready to be on your way.

    We do not ship kittens. However, if driving is not feasible, I do often have customers who fly to meet me at Indianapolis International Airport to pick up their kitten in person and then return home with the kitten as carry on. The airlines charge a modest fee for this... basically, your flight cost is the major expense. While a bit more expensive than cargo shipping, we feel it is also much less stressful for the kitten. Alternatively, I can put you in touch with a professional pet courier who can deliver your kitten to you personally.
