(NZCF International All Breeds Judge)
I fell in love with Persians as a teen and it was not long before I applied for my prefix “CHRISTOS” to breed these beautiful cats. To be closely followed by Exotics. I have enjoyed some wonderful show days with my daughter including Supreme Exhibit at a number of National Shows. I have also bred Siamese & Oriental Shorthairs.

Current NZCF Role: Provisional Registrar, Breed Standards Advisory Council Secretary, All Breeds Tutor Judge
In 2010 I was presented with my Life Membership of NZCF
Judges Training: Entering the NZCF Judges Training Programme and qualifying as Longhair Judge in 1981 extending my license to All Breeds in 1989. I get a great deal of satisfaction out of continuing to be involved with the Training Programme as an All Breeds Tutor.
International All Breeds Judging: I am honoured to be listed as a CFA Guest Judge and will continue to work towards becoming a CFA Approved Guest Judge. I thoroughly enjoy the judging scene, the forward thinking of exhibitors working with improvement of their chosen breeds and of course the interaction with exhibitors and cat lovers from all walks of life. I have judged in all Australian States, The Netherlands, South Africa, United Kingdom, USA, Thailand & China and will continue to share my knowledge “for the love of cats” with future exhibitors and breeders wherever this passion takes me.
