ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Lorna Dawn Friemoth is a second generation CFA breeder and exhibitor, daughter of John and Shelby Friemoth of Shelbie Cattery.

She attended her first cat show in 1984 when she was a week of age and started showing Persians with her family at the age of five. She started stewarding as soon as she was tall enough to reach the back of the judges' cages and clerking at age 12. At age 11, she asked her parents' permission to start raising her own breed of cats. She did her research on various breeds and decided on the Japanese Bobtail due to their loving and playful personality and overall robust health.

She also decided at a young age that she wanted to grow up to be a cat show judge, and started fulfilling the breeding and showing requirements to do so.

She has been a member of the Exotic Breeders Cat Club since 1998 and later joined Japanese Bobtail Fanciers, Just Cat-In Around, Thumbs Up Cat Fanciers, Midwest Persian Tabby Fanciers, Motor City Jazz Club, Ohio State Persian Club, Dayton Cat Fanciers, and Abyssinian Midwest Cat Fanciers.

In 1999 Lorna formed NuDawnz Cattery, a play on words using her middle name, and went on to raise and show 12 breeds of cats, including Japanese Bobtails, Persians, Exotics, American Bobtails, Siamese, Colorpoint Shorthairs, Balinese, Orientals, American Shorthairs, European Burmese, and most recently Abyssinians and Somalis.

She and her family were instrumental in getting the American Bobtail accepted for championship status in CFA and went on to achieve the first American Bobtail national winner and male DM, GC GP BW A Bebop Tail Yeti of NuDawnz, DM, who produced the first American Bobtail kitten national winner and second generation male DM, GC BW NW NuDawnz Yukon Cornelius, DM.

As of 2016, NuDawnz Cattery currently boasts 11 Distinguished Merit titles, 16 regional winners, 4 national winners, and 100 grands, making NuDawnz a Tier V Cattery of Distinction Superior. Lorna will receive her 20 year clerking service award at the annual awards banquet this year in Las Vegas. She is also a Certified Master Clerk.

She is extremely passionate about CFA and cat shows, and has created an exhibitor-focused Facebook page specifically for advertising shows, their closing times, and preliminary counts and breed summaries when available. She and her boyfriend, Seth Baugh, can be found at shows across the country virtually every weekend supporting the hobby that brought them together.
