Sandra Dukes – NSW CFA
.I have been involved in the cat fancy for over 20 years after purchasing my first purebred cats (a Birman neuter and a Turkish Van female) in 1992. I bred and showed Turkish Vans until 2000. In 1998 I decided to stop breeding Turkish Vans and import Norwegian Forest Cats. There were none in Australia at the time and I have been showing and breeding Norwegians for 16 years. I was Treasurer and Show Secretary of the Birman Club for a few years and am now Treasurer for the Longhair Cat Association. I have also been a steward for many years and I’m the editor of the Catching Up journal.
Phillipa Perkins – NSW CFA
I have been involved with the cat fancy since 1988, when I first registered my breeding prefix "SINJIN" 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 and have,, over the years of my involvement with this club, held the positions of Treasurer, Show Manager and Show Secretary & I currently hold the position of President. I am also currently a member of the NSW CFA Management Committee. I became an approved steward in 1994 and then a NSW CFA Companion Judge in 1999.
In March 2015 I successfully completed the NSW CFA All Shorthair Judges Training Course (Groups 2 & 3) and was granted a Probationary Shorthair judges licence. My love & admiration for all felines has given me enormous pleasure in my Companion judging and stewarding and & I am looking forward to continuing that experience in judging and handling the amazing pedigree breeds of cat we have on the show bench.
In my other life,... What other life?? ......The Cats Rule it!!
Margaret Sim – NSW CFA
I have always had cats, firstly moggies then my father bred Seal Point Siamese. I met a pair of Burmese in the early 1970’s and fell in total love with them, especially the Blue Burmese. When I settled down in Sydney I went in search of a Blue Burmese and ended up with a Lilac and Chocolate – they converted my partner Don to cats and in particular Burmese. He in turn converted me to Labrador Retrievers. We moved out of the city to Moss Vale – we had space and time so I commenced breeding and showing in 1987 under the prefix Bima. I breed all colours of Burmese and love them all – my favourites are blue, red and blue tortie.
This led to stewarding which gave me a love of many other breeds and in 1994 I commenced a judging course. I completed Group 2 in 1996, Group 3 in 1998 and in 2009 completed Group 1. I have judged in most states of Australia as well as in New Zealand. I have been involved in clubs – club secretary, committee member and am currently President of the Burmese Cat Society of Australasia. I have experience as show manager as well as working in card rooms and trophies, also lots of experience setting up and pulling down shows.
Fiona Cooper – Cats NSW
I have bred Siamese, Orientals, Foreign Whites, Burmese, Devon Rex, Scottish Folds and even a litter of Abyssinians under the Fioric prefix over the past 26 years. I have been a regular exhibitor for over 25 years and have exhibited in most parts of NSW and occasionally interstate.
My first Maine Coon litter was born in 1999 and I’ve bred these amazing felines since then under the Coolcoons prefix. I’ve imported several of these cats from the UK, Norway, the USA and quite a few from New Zealand. I have enjoyed considerable show success with Coolcoons cats and kittens having won many Best Group 1 Exhibit and Supreme All Breeds Exhibit in Show awards as well as NSW CFA Kitten and Cat of the Year Awards. I’ve owned and/or bred Cat or Kitten of the Year in all 3 Groups with NSW CFA since I first began exhibiting.
I gained my Group 3 judges licence in 1999, followed by Group 2 in 2003 and I completed my Group 1 training in 2008 and have enjoyed judging in most states of Australia, in New Zealand and South Africa and transferred all those licences in 2013 to CATS NSW.
