Setting up my Cattery came by chance as was the arrival of my first Thai-breed cat.
Lisa arrived at my house because my friend's cat had a litter. Having a "Siamese" cat
(see The Thai),
had always been one of my dreams, so I readily jumped at the chance of having Lisa and giving Lisa a family.
In the fall 1996,a little after Lisa's arrival I went to a feline expo for the first time and going round the cages, I noticed that there wasn't even one like my Lisa:
Then , while I was finishing my visit , thinking of the cats in their
cages , I heard the speaker announce that a 'new' breed had been recognized and as the speaker
spoke I realized that he was speaking of Lisa's breed.
