Behind every successful and reputable cattery there is a passionate team that dedicate there lives to the well being, health and everyday chores of keeping our kids happy!
Here is the passionate team behind Carmandale Persians & Exotics.
My love for the Persian Breed can only be described as an 'obsession' and started in 2001 with a beautiful old fashioned 'Doll Faced Persian' named Turtle, were the bug bit and strive to improve my breed with honesty, integrity and passion.
I am the Cat Federation of South Africa's Club Representative, Feline Fan Club's Vice Chairman, a Proudly CFSA Medium Haired, Persian & Exotic Judge and dedicate my life to improving the well being of our cats and the Fancy at whole.
Gottliep Antoni Nortman aka 'Antoni or George'
Behind every hard working team is a supportive partner and Antoni plays a huge supporting roll in keeping the ball going.
Ant does all our administration as well as being part of the Cat Federation of South Africa as there treasurer as well as the Feline Fan Club of Southern Africa.
Thank you for always being there and all the hard work and dedication in making sure it all keeps going; without you it really would not be worth all the hard work. Our passion for the breed and team work makes it all worth while.
Valery is the back bone to Carmandale Persians & Exotics and does all the daily chores in maintaining the overall running of our cattery during the day. She loves what she does and all our cats give her as much love as she puts into them.
Without Valery we would not be were we are today and are forever grateful for all the hard work and dedication.
Thank you my friend; you are the high light to every day with all our kids.
Persians & Exotics require continual grooming to ensure they remain in show condition and our cattery would not be able to survive without our hard working and dedicated groomer, Bongi.
Bongi is a wonderful addition to the team and her attention to detail is amazing! Our cats love her and the connection they have is priceless!
Thank you Bongi for all the love, passion, dedication and hard work! We are so proud at how far you have come and the results in the shows are all because of you!
