Meet the Feline Fun Cattery Team

Our team is small, dedicated and passionate. We all chip in where necessary and one of us is around at all times to supervise your cat. As experienced cat owners, breeders and lovers, you can be confident that your feline is in the best possible hands!

Jane Goble

Jane, a respected Burmese breeder and All Breeds Cat judge, is well known in the South African and International Cat Fancies.

When Jane started breeding Mela Burmese in 1998 her intention was to breed healthy, well socialised kittens; her success is evidenced by her long list of coveted awards.

Jane is the Chairperson of the Provincial Cat Society which holds annual Championship Shows and raises funds for selected feline charities.

Mela Burmese was named for her two daughters, Megan and Laura, who have many fond, and funny, memories of growing up and helping to raise Burmese kittens.

Jane is also a co-owner of Feline Fun Factory, lovingly which produces a range of bespoke, hand-made cat toys.

Jacqui Dawson

Jacqui Dawson

Jacqui is an ardent Burmese breeder through her own cattery, Lilac, Time.

An artist at heart, she’s at her happiest with her hands busy, sewing away and testing new product ideas on her cats for their all-important feedback on Feline Fun Factory‘s bespoke toy range.

Jacqui is a devoted mom to son, Anthony.

Fred Chipwere

Fred became an indispensable member of the Feline Fun Factory team in 2018 and his role has since grown to take on additional responsibilities in the cattery.

Always smiling, Fred is equally adept at designing the mechanics of a Feline Fun Factory toy as he is at bringing finesse to its construction.

He is “The Man” for all cattery maintenance and improvements and thoroughly enjoys the company of the cats. Fred is a very proud father to Lauren and Alex, who are in primary school.
