Our Siamese and Orientals
Our cats live in the home and are treated as members of the family. Like children, they can talk all day and sometimes pout when not given their own way. Siamese are cats with coloured points and blue eyes, while Oriental Shorthairs, or Orientals, are esentially a Siamese with any other coat colour and have green eyes. They can be solid coloured, multi coloured or patterned. These cats love to give love and be loved.
Grand Champion Sinopia Zarabeth Dax is a Chocolate Spotted Tabby Oriental Shorthair. She has had an excellent show career in 2016 and is now focused on being a lounge cat and a mum.
Zarabeth carries the cinnamon gene and potentially could have babies who are cinnamon Siamese and Cinnamon
Oriental, depending on the Sire.
Thank you to Ellen (Trish) Scofield and Kaihau Maikara for trusting Startrill to love her and to provide her a loving home.

Ashrose Nalah Nya Gracie Dax is our beautiful lilac self Oriental Shorthair. Gracie carries the cinnamon gene and could potentially have cinnamon or fawn babies, depending on the sire.
Thank you Margaret Cowell for allowing your stunning girl to reside in our home.
Gracie had her first litter of babies in late 2019 with our Juhraya Dax.

Spice is retired and has now found her forever home with a wonderful family.
Malu Uhura Spice Dax is a Cinnamon-self Oriental.
As she is cinnamon, Spice's babies will all carry the colour cinnamon. If the sire of her babies carries cinnamon, she has a good chance of having cinnamon babies.
Spice comes to us from Lynda Roper. Thank you Lynda for trusting Startill to love her and provide her a loving home.

Grand Champion Gautama Riyaaz Vulcan is a Chocolate Classic Tabby Oriental Shorthair. Vulcan came to us on a lease with restrictions. Vulcan has now been desexed and rehomed to a loving family. He continues to live the life of a pampered indoor cat.
Vulcan attended his first show on 30 October 2016 and was recognised for his excellent type. He won many awards in 2017.
He has fathered beautiful kittens for us, including our beautiful Juhraya Dax.
Startrill is indebted to Kim and Steve from Gautama for entrusting Vulcan in to our care.
Vulcan has been retired from showing and breeding.
He now lives in with a wonderful family. Thanks again to Gautama for allowing us his lease.
