About Us

My name is Pam Collins.  I was born in Essex, but have lived in the West Country for the last 47 years.  Currently I live just outside Bridgwater in Somerset.  Animals have always been my passion.

Although cats have always been part of my life it wasn't until I married in 1969 and Mike bought me a Blue Cream Burmese kitten that pedigree cats came into it!  I visited the National Cat Club Show in December 1970 and saw my first Cornish Rex - I was smitten.  In 1971 I bought LOHTEYN PHEASANT, bred by Leo Heath, on breeding terms - hard to believe that was over 40 years ago.  We are still producing Cornish and am at present involved in my fifth outcross this time using another Russian Blue.  I have previously worked with Margaret Lawrence (Dracuncula) and Nicola O'Louchlin (Fritillery) and very much appreciate their input in the lines I have today.

Margaret John (Hephzibah) who also bred Cornish introduced me to Birmans in 1972 and I was absolutely overwhelmed by their beauty and presence.  There were very few kittens available at that time and it took me 2 years to get to the top of  Betty Brown's waiting list. SMOKEYHILL MAYLI HO  joined  us in 1974 and CRAGLAND KULI bred by Enid Holmes in 1975.  I was very fortunate to obtain SALWANA SAMUEL bred by Dorrie Baldwin from Betty, pedigree almost identical to Mayli's, a wonderfully sound line both in health and temperament.  I am still breeding with the pure Seal and Blue lines today.


I have also produced  Red Series in the past, initially with Bill Nethercott (Snoshu) Red lines and Don Wieden (Burmanx/Sedeki) Red lines.  In the late 90's I was involved in two further Red Series  outcrosses.   Due to several breed defects in those lines which, unfortunately, I had already put  into the 2 original Red lines that I was working with (thinking that I was widening the gene pool). I had to discontinue breeding the Red Series as health and temperament have always been my top priority.

I still show regularly, as I feel it is really important to make certain that we are breeding to the Birman and Cornish Rex Standard of Points. I am also grateful to the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy for over 40 years of a really enjoyable hobby and the opportunity to meet so many people both in the UK and abroad.

If anyone wishes to contact me I am usually available on 01278 455979 or email: pam@dubrovacats.co.uk  We are based just outside Bridgwater in Somerset.
