Thank you for visiting our website
Siamese and Oriental Cats are our Passion and we hope that you will enjoy your journey through our website and learn a little about us along the way.
Our cattery name was not an easy one to decide on. We chatted about it and deliberated on various names before we decided that MyEden was going to be the one. One afternoon on our way home we made a joke about longing to get home to our little Eden and that’s when it struck us. It was our Eden or MyEden and that was that and the name has been with us ever since.
We first registered our cattery with The South African Cat Council in November of 2002 and it became official….our cattery was born.
We started with the Siamese breed exclusively and then added the Oriental breed to our program just over 5 years ago. Orientals are an amazing breed of cat as well and very challenging to breed according to the standard. You'll be surprised how difficult it is to breed a jet black Oriental or a Havana of the correct shade of brown let alone a spotted tabby where spots are very clearly visible, evenly spread out and of similar size.
We have been very privileged to have recently added a black Oriental stud to our breeding program. This boy has many good traits that have been passed on to his babies to the likes of tail length, coat and top of head, all of of which was very much needed. Most impressive of all is the loving personality of the boy that is also being passed on to all our babies.
We absolutely love to show our cats and enjoy spending time with people and breeders that share the same passion as ours. Many of the kittens we've bred have gone on to do very well on show and some of them have won many awards and trophies which is good for our cattery and makes their owners very proud. We would like to thank all of our kitten owners who have taken the time to show our cats so well which have in turn helped us achieve so much over the years. We have tried to capture all our achievements in our News page so feel free to browse.
Part of our breeding program is to ensure that we breed the best quality Siamese and Orientals of excellent health and temperament and in order to do that we ensure that we import the best lines possible from people we trust. We avoid inbreeding as far as possible and do not sell kittens for breeding purposes unless we have established a good relationship with the individual. We offer support to owners of our kittens that wish to show and we are more than happy to explain the process and introduce them to the judges and fellow exhibitors. So if you wish to be owned by one of our precious babies then let us know so we can have a chat and introduce you to this most amazing breed of cat.
Enjoy browsing through our website and don't forget to drop us a line if you would like to chat or have any questions.
We are located in the beautiful city of Cape Town in South Africa, just a few kilometers from the city center. The photograph above was taken from the Waterfront on an early summer evening which is when the place comes alive with lots of places to go eat and things to do. One of the favourite past times is to take a champagne sunset cruise. Be sure to visit our city some day soon.

Siamese babies sleeping. Siamese kittens are born pure white and their point colours only start to develop a few days after their birth.
Look closely at the ear tips and you'll notice the point colour starting to develop. It's difficult to tell exactly what point colour a Siamese will be until they are a few weeks of age
All our cats are proudly raised on Royal Canine and we have been doing so since the start of our cattery. We recommend Royal Canine as the preferred diet of choice.
