Breeder is a continous learning process. My aim is to learn as much as possible about cats, their health and well-being (both physical and mental), breeding, and the abyssinian cat breed among other breeds. I work in close co-operation with experienced breeders from whom I have the privilege to learn. I educate myself continuously, I am a member in several cat organizations, and I have also been chosen for two volunteering positions on local and national level.

Current volunteering positions:

Suomen Kissaliitto ry, member of the Show Commision, 2022–
Itä-Suomen Rotukissayhdistys ry, member of the board, Show Manager, 2021–

Active memberships within the cat fancy:
