Welcome

This is the official webpage of The Oriental Shorthair Cat Association of New Zealand, referred to as TOSCA.

This site will be of interest to fanciers and breeders of the Oriental, Siamese, Javanese, and Balinese breeds.

The Club has been around since 1979 but was named Oriental Shorthair and Rex Cat Club of NZ.  The name changed to the current one in 1985, having dropped the Rex breed from the Constitution.

Many thanks to the Oriental/Siamese breeders who have donated images of their cats to use on our website.
