I live in The Kingdom of The Zulu, in Durban South Africa, I live 30 minutes out of Durban in the hilly Kloof area.

I became the proud owner of my Persian cat in 1987 from a breeder in Johannesburg. Show my Persian at a show in 1988. As I was putting my baby in a cage at the show and looking at the other cats, I knew that she was not a good example of the breed.

I decided there and then that if I want a good example, the best will be to breed with my good example to a good example to the right blood lines.

First litter was born in 1989 which produced two Supremes out of the litter.

I have bred out of my lines numerous Supremes. Other breeding was British and had two litters only, and had three Supremes out the two litters.

Currently breeding British.

I am a great believer that judges can learn from breeders, if you want to grow and understand what breeders want to achieve without being negative.
