Nick Tricarico ~ Groups 1,2,3
I am an All Breeds judge with the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (Aust. & Vic) Inc. (GCCFV) which is currently affiliated with the Australian Cat Federation (Inc.). I completed Group 2 in 1999 and Group 3 in 2002, followed by Group 1 in 2008.
My breed interest is the British Shorthair and with my wife, Cathy, we have been exhibiting and breeding this breed since 1994 under the prefix of Bevington. We specialise in the colours of Orange–Eyed White, Black and Blue. We have bred a number of best in show and cat of the year winners and were GCCFV Group 3 Breeder of the Year winners in 2009.
I have undertaken numerous local and interstate assignments as well as New Zealand. I have judged at the Co–ordinating Cat Council of Australia (CCCA) National Shows in Brisbane in 2004 and in Melbourne in 2007, the World Cat Congress Show in Melbourne in 2010, as well as the New Zealand National Show in 2008. I have been very privileged to judge at these various shows.
Outside of the cat fancy, I am a qualified social worker, and I have been married to Cathy for over 38 years, have a son, Adam, and a beautiful granddaughter, Emily, now aged 6 years.
