In 1964 Judy owned a show/breeding lilac point Siamese female and this was the start of her interest in the cat fancy. Judy’s prefix Metinka was granted in NSW in 1964. In 1966 she owned a deaf blue–eyed white Persian. In 1967 Judy and a friend brought into Australia the first pair of seal point Birmans from England followed by seven more seal and blue point Birmans to expand the gene pool. During her years of judges training Judy bred Burmese and Devon Rex and has shown a blue British Shorthair, Oriental, Russian and Maine Coon. Judy has achieved many awards with these breeds. Her main passions are the Birman and Maine Coon breeds.
Judy gained her Group 1 licence in 1974, Group 2 in 1980 and then completed her training in Group 3 (all with NSW CFA) to become an All Breeds judge in 1985. She transferred to QFA Inc. in 2001. Judy has judged all over Australia and New Zealand as well as in Singapore, UK, Japan and South Africa.
Judy is past Secretary of QFA Inc. an All Breeds Tutor Judge, Life Member and Patron of Birman Cat Fanciers Club of Qld, Life Member of the UK Birman Cat Club, St George Cat Club of NSW and Alpine Cat Club of New Zealand and Delegate to QFA Council for the Cairns All Breeds Cat Club.
