Garden of the Cats

Board of Officers

Catherine Rudy, President: Catherine is a founding member of Garden of the Cats and the initial President of the organization. She has parented cats her entire adult life, most of them rescues, but has recently created a small home-based cattery for Minuets (also known as Napoleons). She also has four dogs–all shelter dogs–and oddly considers herself a dog person over a crazy cat lady. She is responsible for maintaining the organization’s website, organizing club functions, including TICA-sponsored shows, and overseeing all club committees.

William Feigt, Vice-President: William is another founding member of Garden of the Cats and is a passionate cat parent who treasures his beautiful nonstandard Minuet. He has an invested interest in furthering the goals of this organization. He is quite creative and innovative, and has taken on many of the creative aspects of this club, including handcrafting several of the supplies necessary for putting on shows. As Vice-President, William takes over duties in the absence of the President and serves on several committees.

Bryan Rudy, Treasurer: Bryan is better known as Scott and is married to Catherine. He not only helps out with the numerous duties required in raising cats and shepherding the dogs, but will be best used for heavy lifting during club functions. He otherwise oversees the books of the organization and ensures that expenses are kept to a minimum.

Mary Rish, Secretary: Mary not only has a love of cats, but is a wonderful seamstress. She assists with the administrative functions and is an invaluable asset in organization, especially for functions. She is only one of the organization’s members that will be making blankets, hammocks, and curtains for our sponsored shelters.

April Leitte, Counselor: April is a very savvy individual and is our guidance. She is our go-to member when we need help with events, giving us a realistic idea of how those should be put together and developed. Her wisdom is greatly appreciated.
