Nadine entered the cat fancy in 1997 when she started showing desexed Persians but her love of cats started when she was 4 years old when she was given a Persian by her Aunty. Nadine and her husband Luke were granted their prefix Shonstar in 2000 and began breeding Persians in 2001. Since then Nadine’s cats have won many best in show awards including, Kitten, Cat & Desexed of the Year. At the 2003 ACF National in Darwin, Nadine’s desexed cat – Katzrus Kuta Kinda (bred by Dana Suter) was awarded Supreme Exhibit.

Nadine began her judges training in 2002 becoming a Companion Cat judge . She later began Longhair (Group 1) training which was completed with QFA Inc in 2007. Nadine has judged in New Zealand, Tasmania, Melbourne, Sydney, Regional NSW & Queensland.

Nadine has much experience in grooming Persians, running cat shows and has held many positions at Council and Club level. Nadine took a break from these positions when she and Luke had their first child Ryan in January 2007, then extended their family in 2011 with the birth of their twin daughters Grace & Isabelle. In 2018 Nadine took on the position of QFA Cat of the Year points Co–orrdinator, in 2022 was voted in as one of QFA’s Vice President & 2023 will take on the treasurers position. Nadine hopes one day to become an All Breeds judge and apart from Persians she holds a soft spot for Birmans and Burmese.

In 2015 Nadine acquired a Burmese kitten as a show spay and is extremely happy to be showing again.
