Chakri belongs from a unique American cattery "Sandypoints", that has been breeding Old-Style Siamese/Thai for over 30 years.
His name translated means "transcending force of divine strength and stability upon the physical realm". The Chakri dynasty has ruled Thailand since the founding of the Ratthanakosin era in 1782 after king Taksin of Thonburi was declared mad and the capital of Siam shifted to Bangkok. Chakri was born in the Philadelphia area (United States) on May 23rd, 2007. His dam is Sandypoints Sa Fire La Mi Dori (seal point), and his sire, Demeter Chinnas Boy Biskuit (lilac point).
Chakri is descended from an American lineage; the old Green Lane. Green Lane Cattery was owned by Elizabeth Naugle. In the beginning, she dealt primarily with old catteries such as Wu Cattery, Newton Cattery, Doneraile Cattery, and Hollycat Cattery when buying breeding cats. These cats were the old-style type of Siamese in the U.S.descended from the original 11 cats imported from the U.K. The Green Lane Cattery ceased to exist in the early to mid sixties, but because of catteries such as Sandypoints, this old lineage is still preserved.
I am very grateful to his breeder, Sandy, for such a divine boy!
