Mrs Monica Whitaker
MANY Asian cat enthusiasts will have been saddened to learn of the recent death of Monica Whitaker.
Many successful Asian Selfs originate from cats bred by Monica under her Onika prefix. She was particularly instrumental in the development of the spectacular Bombay.
She worked tirelessly in the early days to encourage new owners of her kittens to ensure that the ‘little black panthers’ became known to the cat-loving public. We know
she was delighted when a Bombay won Best Provisional Breed Exhibit at the Supreme Show.
Monica was very particular when choosing new owners for her babies, and was always very pleased to hear of their progress. Many members of the Asian Cat Association have Bombays and other Selfs which originate from Monica’s lines.
We will always be grateful for her hard work and support. Without her encouragement, we would probably never have known the delights of owning a Bombay. Sue & Francis Sketch, Asian Cat Association
