I'm a cat lover from way back. In 1987, with my husband John, we started breeding Birmans under the prefix LEEGRGO. Then we went in to a breeding program with the NZCF to breed Tabby Birmans with the prefix BIRPUR. I have had some excellent show moments with Father/ Son/ and Grandson wining National Show and also two of these cats been Longhair Cat of the Year.

2017 has been a great year with Breeding Best Longhair Cat and Best Longhair Kitten in NZCF.

International Judging

I really enjoy the judging scene, meeting the exhibitors of these beautiful cats, talking to breeders about their breeds, you are always learning as a Judge, every time I am out on the floor it is very rewarding. I have judged in most of the Australian States.
