Sarsenstone Bliss of Cortez Cats, a Thai, photo by Helmi Flick
Our Thai cat, Bliss, came to us from Cristy Bird of Sarsenstone Cattery in Southern California in December, 2007 at 10 months of age.
My husband and I had fallen in love with the look of the traditional Siamese cat and wanted to add one to our family. We searched around the Internet and discovered that Cristy Bird was the breeder of the Thai and probably the person most-responsible for getting this "original" Siamese recognized by TICA (The International Cat Assoc.) as a separate and distinct breed from the "modern" Siamese being shown. We strongly supported her efforts to re-introduce this magnificent feline back to recognition by the entire world.
Bliss has become a dear and fun companion as well as a show cat. We love her dearly and would highly recommend a Thai (or two or three) to anyone considering adding a cat to their lives.
Hi Jean: Love your Thai cat. Bliss is very attractive and her expression says that she is intelligent. Thanks for sharing and showing us Bliss....Michael
