David Howe
 
It is with huge sadness that we announce the sudden death of David Howe on Tuesday 9th April 2013.  
 
 
Dave was a pivotal part of the running of the Maine Coon Cat Club, tirelessly doing so many different jobs for the benefit of the members. Not only was he the club’s treasurer and membership secretary, doing the job so effectively for many years, he was also the show manager. He was very well known in the wider cat fancy because he took the club stall to so many shows around the country and also helped out on results tables for other clubs. He had been a ring supervisor at The Supreme Show for several years and was always willing to help anyone in any capacity that he could. His death is a huge loss to the Maine Coon Cat Club and he will be missed by so many people.
 
Personally, this has left us in deep shock. Dave has been our best friend and constant companion for over thirty-five years. We both met him on our first day at work in the 1970s, the three of us all worked together in the labs at a paint factory back then. He was Best Man at our wedding in 1992, he even moved from Durham to Sheffield a few years after we did. We got him involved in the cat world and he adored his cats, Keverstone Starsnstripes and Keverstone Big Al. He has been a major part of our lives for so long and we cannot begin to imagine him not being around any more.
 
His family were extremely important to him. Our thoughts are with his mother, sister, brother-in-law and nephews and their families, who will all miss him so much.

The very handsome Jinx has continued his amazing show winning career. Not only did he jointly become the first Bronze Olympian in September 2011, in February 2012, became the first cat to gain the title of Silver Olympian and to round things off, on 16th June 2012, at The Lakeland Cat Club Show, he became the first Gold Olympian titled cat. A very fitting title, since this is the year that the Olympics take place in the UK. 
 
Huge congratulations to Stephen & Jill Bunce 
and their beautiful brown tabby & white boy, Jinx on becoming
GOLD OLYMPIAN, UK & IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER
COONTASTIC NIJINSKY
Photo taken by Lisa Aggett at the Maine Coon Cat Club Show 2011 where he was Best Opposite Sex in Show
 
Photo taken by Stephen & Jill Bunce, on the day he became the first Gold Olympian.

This is a fantastic achievement for Jinx and the Maine Coon breed.

Our sincere congratulations to his owners and breeders.
