How it all started:

In 1990 our oldest daughter came home with a Lilac Point Siamese called Kincora's Daisy. Our first reaction was that she must have been sick because she was so skinny and slim with bat ears. Ofcourse,we only knew the European shorthair cats and they are always round and big.. But in a very short time we got attached to her perfect character and we fell in love with her typy building..Ofcourse we wanted a second Siamese and wouldn't it be great to have a litter Siamese kittens? So,we register at a cat club and were thinking about a cattery name. Why Release,you might ask yourself. Well,in that time there was a musical playing in the local theater and this musical told the story about the bad policy in the child protection centers here in Holland. This story upsetted us a lot and we thought the name of this musical would be great for our cattery.  And so Cattery Release was born......

 

 
 

Since that time many Release kittens were born . We met a lot of nice people , breeders and fans of the breed. Ofcourse, like all breeders we also had bad experiences but that 's life. Hopefully we will be able to breed for a long time this lovely breed and make many people happy with them .....

 

 

 
 
 

When asked we help new comers in the cat breeders world. Helping each other to keep this lovely breed healthy and strong is a goal that every breeder should wish for..

 

 

 
 
 

Balinese and Oriental Longhair ( Mandarins)

The  Balinese and Oriental Longhair  ( Also known as Mandarins) is not so famous as the Siamese/Oriental Shorthair . Unfortunately, we must say, because they deserve it so much to be known. It's a lovely breed and they do not need intensive maintance at all . Somehow the story came in to the world that Balinese/Oriental Longhair cats,need a lot of maintance because of the coat. Well,this is a misunderstanding .A Balinese/Oriental Longhair is identical in character and building with the Siamese/oriental longhair. The only difference is the coat, wich is semi long. Have a look at our gallery page . There you can see BB, a Balinese girl and Lucca, a Oriental Longhair boy.  Gallery Page

 

 

 
 
  Foreign White Siamese and Oriental White

 The Foreign White Siamese is  one of the many  lovely colors who appear in the Siamese nowadays, just like the Oriental Shorthair White .The difference between Siamese and Oriental Shorthair is often the eye color, with or without the head spot. We have  a Foreign White boy ( neutered) Because cats with a mainly with coat have an increased chance of deafness, we test all our white kittens on deafness, before they go to their new owners  . Information about this test can be found at:

Hearing Test.

 

 

 
 
 

The Siamese with white (Seychellois)

Read the latest update about the recognition of the Siamese/Balinese with white

The Siamese with white is not accepted as a breed yet in some cat clubs here in Holland. We believe that this is very wrong and we are fighting to get this changed.. But we do need help with this fight from other Dutch breeders. More information about this subject can be found here.

 

 

 

Information about the Oriental cat in all their colors can be found  at the breed info page . Unfortunately ,  this page is not yet ready in English, but hopefully soon it will be. 

 

 

 

Shows.

We do attend shows now and then..mostly in Holland but also in Belgium,Germany and France. We have a page with pictures and video's from various shows

 

 

 

 

 
 

We work together with some well known cattery's.

You can find them on our   cattery links page.

 

 

 
 
  Our cats are free in our house and garden. Cats in cages or in separation we detest. Also the kittens are born and raised in freedom. This way they can get used to all the sounds who are normal in a household. We believe that separation of litters will create scared and nervous cats. The garden has an electric fence ( low voltage) This way we can keep them inside and foreign cats outside.. 
 

 

 

 

   
  All kittens  ( if possible) will be brought by us, to their new owners.  Ofcourse when they have reached the age of 13/14 weeks and with a minimum weight of 1000 grams . This also apply's for kittens who will go abroad  The kittens will be fully vaccinated,dewormed and chipt. Kittens with a white coat will be tested for their hearing. We sell under guarantee  and contract. Our contract can be found here. 

Guarantee and Conditions 

Hopefully you understand our  conditions,because they are necessary  for the well being of our cats. They are born and raised with a lot of love and attention.. We expect  and require that they will receive this care also in their new home.

 

If you are searching for a Balinese, Siamese, Oriental Longhair or Shorthair kitten, we might be able to help you. We know many breeders who, like us, are dedicated to this lovely breed. Sometimes there are also adult cats available who will be sold under the same conditions as the kittens. Usually the price for an adult cat  is the same as  neutering, ID Chip and vaccination costs. If you are interested in an adult cat you can always mail us for availability or have a look at our Gallery page..
