Who We Are
I raised conformations beagles for ten year before embracing a new challenge of cat breeding.
After a serious study on the breed which best suit my lifestyle, my temperament, but also the time I had. My choice is stopped on the Maine Coon. I chose to have a small cattery of Maine Coon and Maine Coon free in the house.
However, what was not my surprise to find that cat breeding is MUCH more complex than breeding dog in Canada and Quebec. First, because of the legislative inconsistencies, but also because of the general lack of formal knowledge of breeders. Shortly after the departure of my cattery, I got involved at different levels and in different organizations to try to overcome all these obstacles.
I am currently involved in various forums to improve the welfare of cats in the country, the Canadian herd of cats and help breeder improve practices.
Here is my current volunteer implication:
- President and founding member of the Club félin Laurentides-Lanaudière;
- Director of Legislative Affairs Chats Canada Cats;
- Director - Representative of feline breeders within ANIMA-Québec;
- Representative of cat breeders in the Quebec Strategy for Health and Welfare of Animals of MAPAQ.
I participate in several cat shows annually. I will be happy to see you there.
