Tacodah Siamese & Orientals cattery was first established by Sandy Nogueira in the early 1990's in Waitakere, Auckland, New Zealand.
Having already bred and shown English Setter dogs, the quality (according to the NZ Cat Fancy standard), health and temperament of the cats was paramount, and no time was wasted before regular show attendances followed with regular placings in the Top 10 in Shows and numerous Breeders Awards of Merit.
Having seen a Lilac point kitten at a show, a passion for dilute colours became the first obsession. The next infatuation was with the recently developed bi-colour Orientals.
One of the original Bi-colour breeders very kindly allowed me to use her lavender and white bi-colour boy Cherdas Mouse, and I was on my way with my first bi-colour litter also in the 1990's. Tacodah's first home bred Bi-colour was Tacodah Manchas, a lovely lavender and white boy who was not only very stylish, he also had the most beautiful temperament, which he consistently passed on to his kittens.
A few generations on, my Ebony and white bi-colour boy Ch: Tacodah Cafezinho was regularly being placed in the top 10 in show, and he sired the National BIS kitten 2003.
In the late 1990's Bi-colour Orientals and Siamese became increasingly popular in Europe, and Tacodah bi-colour kittens were exported to The Netherlands and Italy. Before long their offspring had made their way to the USA and beyond.
Last year Tacodah welcomed our latest addition NZ Br Dbl Gr Ch: Maracai's Lorenzo (imp USA). Lorenzo has already produced some wonderful kittens, and we are looking forward to presenting his babies in the show ring.
Tacodah is a small cattery where our focus is on quality not quantity. All of our breeding cats have been DNA tested for all testable hereditory diseases to ensure our lines will continue to strengthen the Siamese and Oriental breeds in NZ.
We sometimes have available for sale our extremely well bred, very sociable and affectionate kittens. All kittens are fully vaccinated, vet checked, microchipped and those going to pet homes are de-sexed before they go to their new forever families.
