Brought up in a family of pet lovers, it was somehow inevitable that I would want to spend my life surrounded by animals!
My former years were spent loving and caring for cats, dogs, budgies, rabbits and guinea pigs… to mention but a few.
When growing up, I think I truly exhausted the full list of domestic pets possible… latterly I even added four horses to the list!
As a teeneger, I followed the same direction as my parents, into showing and breeding dogs and like them became a judge during the 1980’s.
It was therefore no surprise to anyone when I set my sights on opening a family pet care business. Consequently, I opened a five star luxury cattery… a business I was proud to have created and one which afforded me the privilege and pleasure of winning The Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust Young Business Person Of The Year during the 1990’s.
Shortly afterwards, I extended my hobby into cat showing and breeding and had many pleasurable years in the show ring, winning several major and national accolades…my highest achievement was without doubt winning, overall Supreme Exhibit at The Supreme Cat Show 2016 at The National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham…an achievement most breeders can only dream of!
