Veronica Knight:

I entered the Cat Fancy in 2003 showing Devon Rex.  I own Devon Rex and Singapura and currently show both breeds.

I started stewarding for the Cape Town Stewards Forum in 2004 and became the Secretary of this Forum in 2005.

I am currently training to be an All Breeds Judge and am thus far qualified to judge the Siamese Oriental and Medium Hair Groups.

I am a high school teacher, teaching at a private school in Cape Town and am married to Alastair Knight, who is also very active in the Cat Fancy.

Jane Slabbert

I have been an All Breeds Judge since 1985, judging both nationally and several times in Australia.

I was President of SACC in 1999 and 2000 and have been the Western Province cat Club's delegate to Governing Council since 1966. For 16 years I served as secretary of the Cape Panel of cat Judges, was training co-ordinator for the same period and am at present the Chairman of the Panel.

I bred Persians and Abyssinians for 22 years.

On a personal level, I am a retired high school teacher.   I am married with 3 children and 2 grandsons.  Apart from cats I enjoy gardening and reading.

Ingrid de Wet

I got my first Colourpoint, a blue point female on 6 June 1980 This was the start of my love affair with the Colourpoint Persian. Because I lived in Port Elizabeth, I had access to only one show (in those days!) per year. For any other how I had to travel to Cape Town or another centre. Because I was so isolated, I joined every Colourpoint/ Himalayan breeders ' group in the United States, United Kingdom and Europe ( if I was able to read the language I joined!) I could find!

Nine years later I moved to live in Benoni, where I was able to show cats several times a year without making a big expedition out of the weekend. I stewarded at every show, and eventually started acting as Head Steward more and more often. It was inevitable that I would start working on my training towards a future cat judge.

I became a member of the Cat Fanciers ' Club of SA in 1980 and a committee member in 1988 and filled several portfolios over the years. I was Editor for the Cat Fancier 's Club magazine for several years and helped with shows until I found myself acting as show manager for the CFC shows in the mid nineties. I have represented the CFC as their Delegate at times and have been SACC Breed Council Secretary since 1996.

Like so many of my SACC fellow judges, I have been privileged to judge in other countries. I have judged in several cities in Australia, in New Zealand and in Paris, France. My most recent trip was to Namibia where I met my fellow African Exhibitors.

These travels have made me realize what a high standard is maintained by our local breeders, sometimes in the face of great difficulty. I have great admiration for my fellow South African breeders who dedicate themselves to the betterment (on all levels) of their respective breeds. Keep up the fight! It is worth it!

Today I am still dedicated to the improvement of my chosen breed, The Colourpoint Persian I act as Show Manager for CFC at least one show per year and get the opportunity to handle the beautiful breeds out there when I assess them as an All Breeds judge.
