OBERLIN CATTERY Breeds: Havana / Singapura
OBERLIN CATTERYBreeds: Havana / Singapura


Havana (or Havana Brown in some registries) is a breed of cat developed in the 1950's in England.  The breed was developed by crossing a seal point siamese with a black domestic short hair.  The result was a solid brown cat with siamese type.


Breeding cats were sent from England to the USA in the late 1950's and have been recognized in all the North American registries since the 1960's.  


The breed is called Havana in TICA (The International Cat Association) and Havana Brown in CFA (Cat Fancier's Assoiciaton) and ACFA (American Cat Fancier's Association).    TICA recognizes the dilute color of the breed, Lilac. Therefore, they have chosen to drop 'brown' from their breed name.




In 2018 we acquired our first Singapura.   Singapuras are one of the smallest breeds in the cat fancy.  They are a lively, fun, affectionate breed.   They have a very distinct look and coloration which is in the Sepia Category / Tabby Dvision / Color is Sable Ticked.

Our cats and kittens are our loved pets and live in our home.  We do not believe in caging.  We have few litters which gives us time to spend adequate time with each kitten to socialize them properly. Our kittens and cats have excellent personalities and all of our breeding cats are beautiful show quality meaning they meet the highest standards for the breed. All of our breeding cats receive a full genetic panel from Optimal Selection, which is the gold standard for screening for genetic disorders.  The genetic panel also checks for inbreeding coefficients which help us keep our lines as diverse as possible in breeds that have limited gene diversity. All of our litters are registered with either TICA or CFA, the two largest registries in the USA.  Every kitten/cat comes with registration papers and full pedigrees can be ordered.
