All proceeds from our online sales, show tables and booklets all help towards the promotion of the Old Style Siamese online and by word of mouth.

We as a club are here to support all Siamese either by the kitten list, Rescue/rehoming and any additional care that may be needed from time to time. Let’s face it we all love Siamese what ever colour shade or type, those wonderful blue eyes just need to look at us and we are captivated by their beauty and personality.
