Oriental Cat Association & Oriental Cat Welfare Trust
The OCA and the OCWT would like to celebrate the life of and grieve for the passing of Lin Jones who left us on 8th August. Lin, with her husband Ted, had been a life member of the OCA since 2017, having been a member for at least 10 years prior to that. She and Ted had been hugely loyal members, never missing an opportunity to support us in many ways and always coming to every AGM. Lin was incredibly hard working in supporting other clubs too, and was often seen at many Shows, working hard on fund raising stalls. She always shared some of her stall stock with the OCA and OCWT stalls, whenever we met at shows.
Lin also played an active role for the OCWT, on many occasions accompanying Ted when transport was needed to collect needy cats coming into the care of the charity and delivering them safely to the OCWT Safe Houses.
Lin and Ted had been active and successful breeders of some wonderful kittens, with their well-known prefix of “Tilden” and Lin’s prefix “Soulstealer”, which were sometimes shown and many more going to lucky new owners as healthy and loving pets.
Lin was always at Ted’s side, always cheerful, always positive and unfailingly helpful and kind. Our hearts go out to Ted at this time and every one of us will miss meeting, chatting and often laughing with this wonderful lady. She will remain in our thoughts and memories for many years to come.
