Cats and dogs were all part of Sandra’s early upbringing and that may explain a little of her lifelong comment and love of animals. First showing and breeding dogs and then taking up seriously purebred cats in the very early 1970’s. Russian Blues (had to be after 15 yrs. of owning the Russian dog breed, Borzoi) and then the Cornish Rex, as she always fell for the ‘unusual’ and this wavy coated cat was just so special.
And so other breeds and challenges followed with quite a commitment to extending the breeding gene pool of the silver gene group in British Shorthairs, Somali’s and in the last 10 years, the delightful small breed that not a lot of people yet know about – the Singapura. This loving, cheeky and personality plus breed has ‘attitude’! They seem to have integrated well into Sandra’s multi cat/dog household, but she is not saying who the ring leaders are!
So now as an All Breeds judge, and judging a range of cat breeds and household pets, handling and talking about each is something she enjoys, especially if she can share with the exhibitors her love and knowledge of each, plus encouraging all to take the absorbing hobby of cat ownership further, onto the next generation.
