Condolence

Jane Vermeulen, WCF Allbreed judge in South Africa has gone from us.
We condole the bereaved relatives.

The Board

We are very sad to announce that we lost a very dear friend, breeder of Orientals and Siamese,
President of the Capital Cat Club and internationally respected and loved All Breeds Judge, Jane
Vermeulen on 3 November 2014. Jane had a short battle with cancer and judged at her last show
in Cape Town, South Africa in August 2014. She judged in all the major continents of the word and
very frequently in Europe. She will leave a large void and missed by many, but always remembered
for the positive and happy atmosphere she brought to any event or conversation.
