Cindy Grimes ~ Groups 1,2,3
I have always had a cat in my life since I was 2 1/2 yrs old & they have been my best friends.
I became involved in the cat fancy since 1997 when I started showing desexed Spotted Mist cats (aka Australian Mist) as they were known then. I bred & showed Australian Mists from 1998 to 2008 under the Djindi prefix. In 2004 I got captivated by the beautiful soft curly coat of the Selkirk Rex & commenced breeding them in 2005 under the prefix Purrcurls. I have also bred Exotics/ Persians & British Shorthair litters under the Djindi prefix. I have won the Group 3 Breeder of the Year from 2015 – 2017.
I have been involved with all aspects of show organisation & I have been a qualified steward since 1999. I was a committee member & assistant secretary of the GCCFV from 2008 – 2014 & I the Group3 Registrar from 2010 – 2017.
I qualified as an Open All Shorthair Judge in June 2014 and became a Senior All Shorthair Judge in June 2017. I am currently a Junior Longhair Judge and will be an Open Longhair Judge in June 2018.
I am listed on the ACF National Panel of Judge for groups 2 and 3 and have judged in most states of Australia and in New Zealand.
