Welcome to my homepage !
name is Yvonne Kleijn and I live with my husband Jurgen in Holland. We
have two dogs - a great dane, one Daxhound - and 7 cats.
through my life, cats have been my great passion. As a child I always
had at least two cats - and although I love all animals, I have always
admired cats for their independence, their agility and their intelligence.
In the early 70ties I got my first siamese, and when I went to a catshow with her, and was winning with her too, I discovered the catfancy.
My first litters were bred from my first siamese, but when I became a judge in 1979 I decided it was time to face a new challenge.
wanted to breed the oriental silver tabby, which by that time was only
just being bred in England, and still unknown in Holland.
After getting the silvertabbies and smokes recognised in the independent clubs in the beginning of the 80ties, I decided to move on and follow another dream.
I was breeding the silvers I had always wondered why nobody bred the bi-
and tricolours in the Oriental Shorthairs, and with a group of friends
- nonrelated to the catfancy - I laid out a breeding program.
At the eastern 2005 Mundikat show at Arnhem, we managed to get the positive advice of the judges panel and at the General Assembly the Siamese with whites (Seychellois) got reckognised.
cats live with me in my house, kittens are born in the bedroom where they
stay till 5 weeks old. After that they are moving in with the adult cats.
I hope you'll enjoy your visit here, and feel free to contact me if you like to :-)
