I have always loved animals, especially cats, my first cat was a present for my 8th birthday, a cream Burmese. My mum and I joined the cat fancy and the Burmese cat club after buying our first show cat in 2007, and very naughty chocolate tortie Burmese. We also starting breeding Burmese around the same time under the prefix ’Misara’. I really enjoyed showing our cats and wanted to be more involved in the cat fancy, and when I thought I was ready and the judging course was offered I jumped at it. In my day to day life I am a theatre nurse at a major teaching hospital in Sydney. I find this work to be rewarding, challenging and very interesting as you never know what is going to come through the doors. Even though I am very new to the world of judging I hope to get the same fulfillment out of it as I do my job, because you never know what you’ll be faced with.

I joined the Cat Fancy with my husband in 1976 with the purchase of a Red Point Siamese Kitten. After breeding and successfully showing Red and Tortie points for some time, we moved into all other colours and patterns of Siamese, still with the emphasis on Red, Cream ,Tortie and Tabby Points
With the purchase of a Chocolate Oriental from Western Australia we bred and showed with great success him and his progeny , gaining many Best in Show awards and Cats of the year.

Our next, still within the Siamese family we obtained, showed and bred Foreign Whites We then bred Balinese with some measure of acceptance and success. I currently breed Foreign Whites and Siamese ( mainly Tabby Points) with the addition of the Longhair Foreign Whites, I have owned many Best in Show and Cats of the year in this group. I have also bred and shown successfully Abyssinians, Devon and Cornish Rexes and Burmese –these also featuring in many Cat of the Year awards, Along with the Foreign Whites and Siamese, at present, I still breed breed Cornish Rexes –under the prefix of FRETOMAU which I have held for over 40 years.

I am a Life Member and Secretary / Treasurer of the Federal Cat Club of Australasia , as well as President of Kempsey Kat Club , Blue Point Siamese and Jacaranda Cat Clubs and am actively involved in promoting the showing and breeding of Pedigreed Cats in the Country areas of NSW.

I come from a family of cat lovers and have grown up always with a cat on my lap. I developed a love for the elegant and talkative Siamese and as a teenager I was given a Red Point male, Conan who I started to show with the RAS Cat Control in 1989. He sired a few litters with our seal point female Serena, and our Seal Lynx point female under my mother’s prefix ‘Eronel’.

I returned to the cat fancy in 2005 after I fell in love with a beautiful blue point female as a member of the NSW CFA. I started my breeding journey with her in late 2005 when she had a wonderful litter of 6 kittens from an Oriental stud under my prefix ‘Zoel’. And so began my love of the Oriental breed!
I kept a black spotted tabby female, Tabitha from my first litter, and continued my breeding program with her. My mother kept a lovely Black Oriental neuter from my first litter, Romeo, and continued to attend shows with me over the years showing him and later exhibiting some other beautiful show neuters she spoilt over the years. Unfortunately, she passed away in 2013 and I miss attending shows with her.

I have been breeding Siamese and Orientals for 17 years and remain active in the cat fancy as an exhibitor. I recently resigned from NSW CFA committee, after serving for 3 years. However, I am currently a long serving member of the Oriental Cat Club of NSW and sit on the board as club treasurer. I have a small cattery on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, and breed my kittens for health, temperament and to improve show quality. I currently have 5 breeding girls and recently imported a Red spotted bicolour Oriental stud from Norway, Love Actually, to bring genetic diversity to my lines and the ‘modern’ European type. I am proud to have received many Top 5 Cat of the Year awards and had the honour of showing and breeding cats who have been awarded Supreme Exhibits in Show in both Australia and New Zealand.

I commenced working at shows as a steward in 2007 and attained my Shorthair Judges license in 2015. I plan to complete my Gr 1 Longhair Judges course in early 2023, to qualify as an All Breeds Judge. I consider myself privileged to admire, handle and judge the show exhibits. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to judge interstate which has enabled me to develop many new friendships and meet many new felines!

When not attending cat shows, I work as a midwife at the Northern Beaches Hospital. I am a mother to 5 children and have a grandson, Chase. I have 2 boys left living at home, Arian and Zahn who love having our cats as part of our family.

Animals have always been important in my life. After growing up with the company of whippets, greyhounds and a succession of cats of varying descriptions, I became interested in cats in a serious way after forming a liaison with my first Abyssinians, a tawny and a silver, in 1989. Initially, it was just an involvement in showing cats but breeding them soon followed, specialising in Silver Abyssinians under the Nivalis prefix. Today, we have a multi–cat household, each of them allotted time according to their need to love and be loved. All cats are special and each is unique, regardless of their ancestry.

I have held membership with several cat clubs and for many years, was involved with the Abyssinian and Somali Cat Club of Australia serving in roles including President, Secretary, Treasurer and Show Manager. Since 1998 I have been active as a steward, enjoying assignments in all groups and in 2003, qualified as a Companion Exhibit Judge.

My pedigreed judging experience began with Group 3 (full licence 2010), followed by Group 2 in 2013, attaining my Shorthair Judge’s licence. I completed my Longhair licence (Group 1) and was granted full licence as an All Breeds Judge in November 2016.

Currently residing in the Hunter Valley Wine Country region of NSW, I enjoy observing and learning about our local wildlife. Apart from my strong interest in all things feline, other interests include zoology, embroidery, quilting and music.

I have been interested in cats ( and horses) as long as I can remember. I remember clearly my first kitten, Tibby, a tabby, I must have been all but three years old, and my love for felines has grown from there, and I cannot not remember a time that I did not own a cat.
In the early 80’s I bred Persians, which I found so rewarding and an enjoyable relaxing hobby. Unfortunately, due to family commitments I retired from breeding, but promised myself once the family had grown up, I would continue my passion.
Hence in 1990, I purchased and showed my first neuter Ragdoll, and finally in 2000’s I started up a Prefix “ Grathbrae” which is now founded on Ragdolls imports from America and Europe.
My passion, apart from breeding is showing (also showing Clydesdale horses), my partner and I travel wide afield, as I am truly committed in showing others the beauty of the gorgeous Ragdoll cat.
I am also a trainee G1 Judge and Steward.

I have been involved with the cat fancy since 1988.~ 35 years!!

From when I first registered my breeding prefix “SINJIN” in 1988, under which I have exclusively bred Siamese & Orientals and much to my delight achieved numerous Breeder/Owner ~ Cat & Kitten of the Year awards over the years.

I’m a founding & life member of “The Oriental Cat Club of NSW” (Est:1989) and have over the years of my involvement with this club, have held the positions of Vice President, Treasurer, and Show Manager/Show Secretary & currently hold the position of Club President.

In July 2022, I was proudly presented with a “Honorary Membership” from the New Zealand Siamese Cat Association, which I had the privilege of judging for in Christchurch. NZ.

I become an approved steward in 1994, and then a NSWCFA Companion Judge in 1999.

In March 2017, I successfully completed with NSWCFA ~ The All Shorthair Judges Training Course (Groups 2 & 3) and was granted my Full Shorthair Open Licence, and in August 2022, advanced to All Shorthair Tudor Judge.

As from September 2022, I’m currently Probationary Longhair (Group 1) with the NSWCFA, with the hope of becoming an “Allbreeds Open Licence Judge” in the near future!!

My love & admiration for all felines gives me enormous pleasure judging and I am so looking forward to continuing this experience over the years to come. As we have some truly amazing pedigree cats on the show bench today.

In my other life ~ What other life?? .......The Cats Rule It!!!!

Sue Thomas (Prob.G1)

Since early childhood I have had the usual association with various domestic cats including a manx.

After a lot of research, my husband and I settled on the Burmese cat for our family, and we purchased our first Burmese in 1983. In 1985, after purchasing two further neuter boys, we began showing our cats. These three cats were just wonderful with their outgoing natures, loving personalities and absolute devotion to us all, thus my fate as a Burmese owner was sealed. A further cat joined us in 1999, and so continued the interest in showing.

I had a very strong desire around this time to breed these gorgeous cats, however this didn’t occur until 2006, when our first two breeding girls arrived, and so began our breeding programme under the Sukimah prefix, which over the years has had some success on the show bench.

Stewarding seemed a natural progression and I found this activity to be most rewarding, as I was exposed to all the other breeds of cats on the show bench. This eventually led to me studying and completing the shorthair judging course.

I am a fully qualified shorthair judge, and earlier this year I successfully completed the Group 1 judges training programme, and now have the status of all breeds judge with a Group 1 (P) licence. I am currently serving my 4th term on the NSW CFA Management Committee, having served a short period as President, and at present I am the Senior Vice President.

I am a member of the Compliance/Education, Show sub committee and Judges/Breeders sub committees. I My involvement in individual CCCA affiliate clubs is as follows: for some years I held the position of treasurer for The Burmese Society of Australasia Inc, then since 2011, I have filled the role as secretary and together with my secretarial duties, I am also the co–editor of our Society’s newsletter. I am also a member of four other clubs.

My life outside of the cat fancy is taken up by part–time work in an accountant’s practice. I enjoy reading books, crosswords, being outdoors, gardening, spending time with my friends, my family here and in WA, and having time to spend with our beautiful cats. I have had to forgo my motor
sport (hill climbing) since my ever increasing involvement in the cat fancy, I have found that I have run out of enough days in the week.

I have always had a love affair with cats for as long as I can remember and would always befriend any cat I came across. I got my first pedigree cat in 1977 and started to show in 1978. He was a red point Siamese and this was the beginning of my involvement in the cat world.

Together with my husband Ray, an All Breeds Judge, we breed and show both Siamese and British shorthair under the Tomadah Prefix. We specialise in red, cream and tortie point Siamese which have taken out many Best In Show and Group 2 Cat of the Year Awards. We live in Griffith in the heart of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area and in 1982, with the help of others, were instrumental in the founding of the MIA Cat Club. For various periods over the years since then I have held the positions of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Publicity Officer of the Club.

I am an experienced Steward and completed the Companion Cat Judges Training Course in 1997 and since then have judged at many shows. I successfully completed the Group 2 Judges Training Course in 2001, obtaining my full Group 2 Licence on 1 July 2003.

I love all cats. I have always had cats in my life. I purchased my first show cats in 1996, which were 2 Persians and enjoyed showing them for a number of years. I took a breather from showing for about 13 years while I was raising my children. 15 years ago, I rescued a Burmese and fell in love with the breed and I have been breeding and showing Burmese for the last 5 years.
I am an active member of The Jacaranda and Holiday Coast Cat Club. I am a Steward and love my Stewarding duties and embrace the opportunity to work as a Companion Judge.
I understand how important Companion Cats are to their owners, as I still show my 16yo Burmese in the Companion ring.
I promote responsible cat ownership and look for good grooming, healthy appearance and lovely purr–sonality when judging cats in the Companion Ring. I would be honoured to be a Companion Judge at your next show.

Hi Everybody, as a child I grew up around companion cats, there was always one or two dominating the household during my childhood. Tibby, a domestic female tabby, was my very first companion as a child and I had the pleasure of enjoying her company for 21 years. The love of companions carried on into my adult life and as the years got on, I found the love of showing companion cats and my first companion show cat was a black and white semi long hair female by the name of Tabitha Lee.
I continued showing companions even when I began breeding and showing Egyptian Mau’s. The companion cat has a special place in my heart, and I look forward to meeting you all and your wonderful companions.

I have been in the Cat fancy since June 1988 when it was the RASCC

I purchased a little brown Burmese neuter from Cilff and Wendy Chambers under the Zoar Cattery & that is when the showing bug bit me.

I then progressed to a wonderful Red Burmese neuter under the Sinh prefix of Mick Patterson. His registered name was Sinh Aztec Gold. This boy was the first cat to win the very prestigious Tomahawk Trophy St the Sydney Royal Easter show. I progressed with great success with many Cat of the year awards with a Lilac Oriental and his litter brother a Chocolate Siamese

I have been involve in may many clubs over the years ....to many too mention. I have been an active member Of The Oriental Club of NSW .....Vice president 12 yearrs & now President of 2 years

My husband and I have actively breed and shown Weimaraner dogs for over 38 years

I am very excited that I have qualified to be a Companion Judge with the NSW CFA. I am totally besotted with all of the feline breed

Felines are " Simply the Best "
