Our feline friends have been a part of my life since early childhood. Even an asthmatic allergy to cat hair could not lessen my love, devotion and involvement with cats. Aged 13, I was granted my Breeder’s Prefix Kalinya, thereby entering me in to the pleasures and heartaches of breeding and showing Siamese. During my teenage years as a junior member of Illawarra Pedigree Cat Fancy I worked as a Steward and wherever else I could be of assistance. My breeding and showing life was interrupted for a longer than expected period by my human breeding programme.

Resurrecting my Kalinya prefix in 1990, I resumed feline breeding with firstly a “rescued” lilac Burmese then British Shorthair and since 1991, my first love, Siamese. Promoting our cats around NSW and afar has been and continues to be of immense pleasure.

In 1996 I successfully passed my Steward’s exam and now thoroughly enjoy working in this role handling and learning about all the breeds and meeting and working with all of my fellow Cat enthusiasts.

I am the current President of Siamese Cat Society of NSW and have held many roles within other Cat organisations including Club President, Club Secretary. Show Manager, Show Secretary and currently Vice President of Cats NSW.

By gaining my Judges Licence for Group 2 (2003) and Group 1 (2007), I have given myself the opportunity to share my knowledge and training with exhibitors and to continue to promote the responsible ownership and breeding of cats.
