                                      Quite a lot of you people know me as a happy, always open and warm hearted
                                      person. I am very easy going and like a laugh.

                                      Over 15 years ago (add a few more on!) I started showing a colourpoint Persian. I had so much fun,
                                      that I decided to start breeding, those “fluffy” little darlings. After 18 months of waiting for a very
                                      typey Persian female, she finally arrived from Sophie Hope -Johnstone (Solaris Cattery, Adelaide).
                                      I was so proud to show this beautiful black girl, her name was “Solaris Sweet Baroness”.

                                      Later on I received a black smoke Persian male kitten from “Mynamz Cattery” and that’s where it
                                      all began. I loved and still love breeding my smokes, of any colour.
Over the years I introduced the tabby pattern. Now of course, I do breed one of the very attractive patterns, a stunner of a pattern
……...the Silver tabby.
I was always very impressed with the orange eyed whites, yes I do agree with you, it is very hard, but, when you do have a beautiful O.E.
White and present it in the proper way, it’s just breath taking. I’m still breeding pure Persians under the name “KOENIG CATTERY”

In 2003/04 I started my Group 1 Judges course and completed and passed this successfully. Thank you very much to all concerned.
My first Group 1 Judging assignment was on September 12 th, 2004 at the B.O.S.H Show
I couldn’t ask for a better start to Judge, I truly was in “Heaven”, a day I will never forget...

Since I started judging, I have come a long way, it was a very big honor to be invited from Dennis Turner and Pat Andrews to NSW and
judge at the Ku-Ring-Gai Cat Show/ The Himalayan Cat Club show. Two years in a row 2007/08.
Lorraine Vahland, “discovered me” and Lorraine invited me to Canberra, I have to admit, we had lots of fun and enjoyment.
I‘ve twice had the enjoyment to judge in Adelaide as well, what a great bunch of people. Lot’s of laughs we had. Jan Gibson was the
Manager of the first Club show and you were brilliant Jan.
Lastly - Tasmania, three times now, in a row, (2007/08/09 I must’ve done something right, big thank you to Sally Tonks and the
members. You guys enjoyed my judging as I enjoyed Judging for you - totally involved, what a terrific time.

Now I can include my first overseas assignment. New Zealand, in August 2009.
The meaning for me of having, breeding and Showing and now judging is “Enjoyment, Fun and lots of Laughs” They are my Keywords and
will always be my Keywords. I hope that will never stop.

Groups 1 and 4 Judge (International)
