Today, the 23rd of December 2023, the FIFe Board was informed of the recent death of the Honorary and International FIFe Judge for the categories 1, 2, 3 and 4C Mr. Carl-Kristian Gulsett (NO). Carl-Kristian became 81 years this year.
Carl-Kristian joined BERAK, a club of the Norwegian Member NRR in 1968, and his cattery name Hymes was approved in 1969. He was the first to import cream Burmese cats to Norway and he bred them over several years.
He took his judge exam in category I and II in 1972 and in category III in 1974.
Many of us remember him fondly, he was very active – but in the last 10 years his health deteriorated, and he put judging on the shelf.
Carl-Kristian was knowledgeable and a popular judge. He spoke several languages and was very well liked as a judge where he represented FIFe with style and class.
Carl-Kristian will be sorely missed, and the FIFe Board extends its deepest condolences to his family and friends and the Norwegian FIFe Member NRR.
