I was destined to be a cat lover, both of my parents having had cats throughout their lives. 

As a child, I had a large black and white companion cat.  My first pedigreed cat was a dear little apple headed Siamese, acquired in 1971, and my love of the breed was established.  I was in awe of the ability of judges, and my goal was set to become one of their ranks. Over the years, I have shared my life with Siamese, Russian Blues, Australian Mists and Somalis, breeding and showing their lovely kittens.


I currently share my home with two self possessed Somali ladies, a laid back Russian Blue gentleman, and a darling, 16 year old domestic ticked tabby boy.

 In 1992, I moved from New South Wales to Victoria, and am currently a member of the Feline Control Council of Victoria.  I have progressed through the various levels of show management to achieve that goal of becoming a judge, gaining my Group 2 licence in 1998, and progressing to All Breeds, and Tutor Judge.  I have judged in all Australian States, USA and New Zealand.

Whilst my cats are very important, I still find time to enjoy a varied life.  My working life as an accountant closed in 2013, and I did not realise that retirement could be so time consuming and rewarding.  My days are spent gardening, and enjoying the company of my cats.  I have family and friends interstate to visit.  I have been an Opera Australia an Australian Ballet subscriber for many years, and enjoy most other types of music.  My evenings are generally spent doing embroidery (cat designs, of course).  I am also a very keen reader, particularly enjoying current affairs, history, biographies, and good spy thrillers.

My mantra for life is “Learn something new every day”.
