Elizabeth and Kiselle (BIS) at Bingley show, 1992
We live in Allerton, West Yorkshire where I moved on taking a post as a Nurse Tutor in 1983, bringing Cady and Trudy with me.
I was retired for health reasons after 5 years --- so the animals, my activities as an Anglican Reader (minister),
local RCN President & secretary, also school governor x 2 and director of MASTS, and various
other interests from needlework art & music and a second degree course at Bradford Uni and more get more attention these days.
The Cadifee Cats live alongside four Trufee Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
The Trufees began with foundation bitch, Magjen True Delight of Devonia's (Trudy)arrival in October 1981
--- but she was carefully chosen with the help of my much loved cat,
Cadoca Magdalana (Cady), a tabby and white who enjoyed her days at shows and walked happily on a lead and harness
to keep her dogs in order.
As a child I did show a Wire haired terrier and did show Cavaliers a little in the few years before getting Trudy.
After some considerable thought, careful planning, and a time of waiting the first British Shorthair arrived in 1989,
the year the prefix Cadifee also came into being thanks to the British Shorthair and Tipped Cat Club.
Today there are thirteen cats.
My stud boys:
Gr. Ch. Cadifee Bracken Lad 30
(1 Gr. C.C. and B.I.S. at the Erin 2001 --- 1 Gr. C.C. and B.I.S British N. Ireland 2003 --- !
Gr. C.C. and B.O.V. Gwynedd 2003) He also gained his 1st Irish C.C. at the SABCCI 2003.
--- Bracken had a rough time with his initial purchaser, and took some time to settle once back home with us.
He has his own pen in the penned area outside the kitchen and back door and enjoys the freedom of the house,
unless the girls are calling --- and no, he has never sprayed.
Cadifee Desiderius (15) has sired a few litters
Cadifee Ennodius run on --- good new pet home would be ideal
The Queens are:--
