My name is Joan Pounds and I live on the outskirts of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, 10 minutes from the M5.
I have been involved with cats in one way or another for 40 years. Initially I owned two rescue moggies, Charlie and Toby and went on to volunteer for Cats Protection as a fosterer and ultimately ran my local branch for several years.
In 2002 I found myself in a position to satisfy a long held wish and bought my first pedigree Siamese cat - Shermese Wishuponastar.
Star started me on the road to showing and becoming involved in the cat showing world.
One soon became two and then three and I began breeding both Siamese and Orientals under my Jomese prefix. I have been breeding these beautiful cats for 17 years now and have bred many Champions, Grand Champions and Imperial Grand Champions - plus Best of Variety Siamese Kitten, Adult and Neuter at the Supreme Cat Show.
I am a GCCF full judge of Siamese and Balinese cats and a pupil judge of Orientals.
Perhaps most importantly, I have bred many much loved family pets and really enjoy receiving updates over the years.
I try my utmost to be an ethical breeder. I aim to never breed from a female cat until she is 12 months plus and my girls will only have a maximum of three litters before they are neutered. I do not breed from any cat that I know to have health issues and all my cats are fully vaccinated, regularly wormed and fully insured so that they can receive any medical treatment they need.
I have my own two stud boys - GRCH Caspa Catbaloo ( blue Point) and CH Thaistar Trailblazer ( seal Point) so my girls only rarely go out to stud.
My kittens live in our family home, starting off in the bedroom and graduating downstairs around the age of 6 weeks. I have 3 whippets and the kittens grow up with the dogs and other cats. The kittens are vet checked and vaccinated at 9 and 12 weeks and will have been wormed regularly.
They never leave home until they are at least 14 weeks old.
Kittens go to their new homes with a 5 generation pedigree, GCCF registration, vaccination certificate, advisory sheets, goody bag including food that they are used to, five weeks free insurance and lifetime support.
