Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

DALKEITH res­i­dent Jane Horstman will be among 12 judges from all over the world at the Aus­tralian Cat Fed­er­a­tion Na­tional Cat Show this week­end.

A record 285 cats have been en­tered this year with eight rings – there are gen­er­ally two – for the Clare­mont Show­ground event.

Ms Horstman, who has been judg­ing at lo­cal and na­tional events since 1980, has a ben­gal and persian cat but no longer en­ters them in shows.

Breeds that will be judged this week­end in­clude rag­dolls, rus­sians, per­sians, maine coons, bri­tish short­hairs, abyssini­ans, ben­gals and burmese and rarer breeds such as bur­mil­las, ba­li­nese, manx, mandalay and sph­ynx.

The show is from 10am-5pm on Satur­day and 10am-2.30pm Sun­day.

En­try is $5 for adults and $10 for a fam­ily.
