I have had Burmese cats for nearly 50 years and can't imagine a life without them. Our first Burmese was Kevitor Brown Ebony from Margaret Somers and he joined our two Siamese from Vic Watson - all those years ago! I lost my heart to the Burmese temperament and we have owned Kevitors and Paradimas ever since.
I showed and bred Burmese briefly but discovered that was not the world for me. Instead I wrote for the News, ran show tables and became a committee member and Membership Secretary for the BCC.
This satisfied a concern I had that the ordinary members should have a voice in the running of the Club and I felt I represented them. It is this accessibility and link that I will encourage and maintain in our new Association.
