Breed Interests: Devon Rex, British S/H & Mandalay.
Judging: National and International All Breeds Judge.
Having been introduced to the cat fancy from birth, I guess it was inevitable
that I would find myself part of the greater cat world later in life.
I can remember the days of the closed shows, where everyone was “locked out”
during judging and only allowed back in when the Judges had finished in the
afternoon, to find out whether your prized “puss” had done you proud. I do
enjoy the open shows as well though, where the Judges comment on the
exhibits as they go – makes for an exciting day.
Currently, I am taking a break from active breeding though I do play an active
role in the Carinya British breeding program with my parents. My greatest
breeding success was winning Group 3 Kitten of Year with CCCA Ch, BDGC
Nevaska Dream Start – [Devon Rex], as well as several BOB Devon Rex
Exhibits of Year with kids from my breeding program.
I am a current member of the Curly Coats Cat Club of Qld Inc. & The Exotic
Cat Club of Qld Inc. as well as being on the CQI & CCCA Tutor Judges Panel.
I have previously held the position of Secretary of Cats Qld Inc.
While my 2 desexed girls are now too old to be on the show bench, I take
absolute joy in showing my beautiful companion Devon Rex & registered
Carinya kids to their very best potential.
