Traditional Siamese Male, 2006
I am just starting as a small hobby breeder of Traditional and Traditional/Classic Siamese. I don't have a web site yet, but my cattery is Xi-Gua Siamese of Rocky Ford.
With regard to CFA not recognizing Traditional Siamese -- it's true they don't recognize them as meeting their modern breed standard, but there are quite a few pedigreed Traditional Siamese out there who are registered with CFA, with pedigrees of many generations of Traditional CFA-registered Siamese. I own one of these cats, Shoobox Kubla Khan of Xi-Gua, (call name Conn). Conn was bred by Shirley Miller of Shoobox Cattery (one of your links below), and he is an extreme Traditional type -- cobby and muscular, with wide, round face, and springy fur. I've attached a photo of him taken by someone else -- not very good, but it shows his shape and beautiful eyes.
The existence of the long pedigrees, full of champions, for these types of cats in CFA's records rather undermines the claim of some modern Siamese breeders that the Traditional is an outcross or just a badly-bred Siamese.
Addressing your comments on the traditional breeder sites below:
Traditional Siamese in San Diego is owned by Diane Dunaway. Shoobox Cattery, also in San Diego, is owned by Shirley Miller. They are not affiliated, but have done a lot of breeding to each other's cats.
Shadows Cattery has redone their site since you visited it. It is much easier to find one's way around. They are located in Aguanga, California.
