I'm from Finland and always had cats/dogs. I started breeding Manx, both SH (Manx) and LH (Cymric) in 1996 under catteryname D'manns. Started in FIFé and also changed to CFA later on. I've been heavily involved with the breed world-wide and I'm also a pedigree and health info freak :) I believe in co-operation in the breed and I'm always happy f.e. to mentor newcomers or whatever I can do to help the breed, meaning the cats and people. I started updating our breed's database since it's beginning with Tuija, at 2005.
