Tricks and Tails is a joint venture of Astrid & Leo.
Together we do all the work involved.
Active with Cats
Over the years we have developed our own specialties in "cattery
management": Astrid works 3 days a week as a consultant in the
road haulage industry, which gives her plenty of time for feline
activities. These vary from the tedious cleaning of the house (cat
hair all over the place), to some more interesting things: With
Swedish Maine Coon breeder and FIFe semi long hair judge Ulrika
Olsson, she maintains The Maine Coon database. This involves entering
and checking many pedigrees.
As an active member of the Dutch Maine Coon Club, Astrid is one of
the members of the Breeders Advisory Committee that strives to promote
and protect the Maine Coon breed and educates new owners and breeders
of Maine Coons. Over the years her articles have been published in
It's Coontime (quarterly magazine of the Dutch Maine Coon
club), Felikat Magazine (our Dutch FIFe club magazine),
Scratch Sheet (magazine of the Maine Coon Breeders and
Fanciers Association) and Maine Coon International.
