Judge Profile

Paddy Smith

I have a life long love affair with cats, starting with a blue Persian, as a birthday present, at the age of 8, in the UK.

1976 National Show in NZ introduced me to smoke and cameo Persians, what beautiful cats, divine colours. Soon after that I discovered Exotics “the teddy bears” and they have become one of my firm favorite breeds. Although I have to admit, to a hankering for a Maine Coon, what a majestic cat, before my animal days are over!

I joined the judges list as a senior in 1996 and as a tutor judge I hope that I have helped younger up-coming judges to achieve their goals. I enjoy the hype and camaraderie of the show scene here and
in Australia.
