I have started my cat hobby at FIFé but have changed under CFA where I have my cattery name TA. I have had Birman studs since 1993 and got my first Cymric (longhair Manx) 2004. My first Cymric litter was born 2012. I have been the maintainer of MAN and CYM database since its beginning 2005 with Ina Koli. To Birman database I have updated mostly Finnish Birmans and their blood group information.
