The Scuderia Le Blanc family kennel was founded in 1998 as one of the few European old Thai Siamese kennels. We have always preserved the Thai breed from extinction; moreover in our breeding all the reproducers are tested annually for FIV (feline immunodeficiency "HIV"), for FeLV (feline leukemia) and for FIP. All the cats we own have a microchip and pedigree in order to guarantee their genealogy and origin.
Our cats and all litters are grown and reared at home with love, passion and care where everything is cat-friendly. They are selected for character and breed standards so that they can get genetically healthy and sociable puppies both with people and with other animals.
Over the years, given the great family passion, we have also dedicated ourselves to breeding Siberian cats (with hypoallergenic grade 5 hair) and Scottish.
After many complaints and dangers of buying kittens at low prices from improvised, clumsy and / or rude breeders or who only think about trade by treating cats as an object, we have decided to select other breeds through our closest collaborators (Persiano, Certosino , Maine Coon, Ragdoll, Sacred of Burma, British) to give a better service to our friend buyer and avoid wasting time and illness to your furry friend!
We are therefore available for all your requests.
ONE PAW TO ALL!!

THE HISTORY AND STANDARDS OF THE THAI SIAMESE BREED
The traditional Thai or Siamese cat is one of the oldest and best known breeds in the world. It represents the traditional morphology of the Siamese cat that has disappeared since the 1950s when breeders selected the classic Siamese, arriving at today's Siamese with extreme lines with a very angular head, very slender body and large and pointed ears. In these years of breeding we have selected the best bloodlines to be able to find the aesthetic lines and the ancient morphological characteristics: rounded head, tapered medium-sized tail, rounded medium-sized ears as can be seen in the photos below which attest to the ancient morphology .

THE STORY AND STANDARDS OF THE SCOTTISH FOLD AND STRAIGHT BREED
It is a breed originating in Scotland, the coat can be of wide variety of colors. Main features are the ears folded forward, a rounded head and expressive round eyes that resemble an owl. It is not a cat that loves to meow and is particularly recommended for families with children and living in apartments. The crease of the ears is caused by a genetic disorder called osteochondrodysplasia; in fact the mating must always take place with subjects with straight ears (straight) to avoid serious health problems therefore it is absolutely forbidden to mate two Scottish folds, as the folded ears gene is dominant. Both the Scottish fold and straight have a playful character, they bond strongly to each member of the family and are often recommended for children as they are very balanced, docile and affectionate.
In the 1960s a Scottish shepherd noticed a cat with strange folded ears and became curious to discover that the cat belonged to an acquaintance and was named Susie. Mr. Ross and his wife decided to adopt a puppy that Susie gave birth to also having those strange ears. They decided to study this strange peculiarity by deciding to call this new breed "lop-eared" and in 1966 obtained the registration of the breed. In the 70's the breed was renamed Scottish fold but shortly after they revoked the registration because the folding of the ears caused disturbances; at this point the Ross family decided to transfer the cats to the United States in order to further study the mutation of the ears. From 1978 the Scottish fold gained access to the championships.
