Blue Persian Cat Society
An exciting opportunity has arisen to portray the beauty of our Blue Persians in a colour supplement in OUR CATS newspaper.

We are taking space to collect some past, present and, hopefully, future winners in a special focus on our Society. As space is limited to just 12 photographs in colour, with the name of the cat and/or breeder name, we would ask that only Members apply, and on a first come, first served basis. I will be doing a feature on the Society, so would appreciate a brief profile with the photos. The cost of this special focus will be just £15 per photo with editorial.

For any further information or to book an ad, please contact
Lyn Hudson on orbiscats@hotmail.com or telephone 029 2062 5999.
