9 April 2022 dawned bright and crisp, and although there was a chill in the air, it stayed fine all day. It was really good to be welcoming everyone after such a long absence for the Association’s Show.
The spruced-up show hall had been well prepared by our willing band of helpers and the penners. 40 cats had been entered and all exhibitors except one turned up. Our thanks to Rosemary Fisher and Lynda Ashmore the show managers for all their hard work. A special mention goes to Margaret Weeks-Lloyd who manned the raffle, the club stall and showed both her cats and a friend’s cat as well: you are truly a star Margs!!! The cats did their owners proud, a special mention to a lovely brown female who won the Sandra Bridges’ special award, Mr and Mrs Crampton-Barden’s Ch Sykris Isabella Dawn Mist.
The Olympian winners were Mrs Marshall’s IGrCh Millgill Narcotic Norma, a lovely Blue lady, Mrs Finch’s IGrPr Pouncealot Sir Prancealot a super Choc Silver Shaded Asian lad. There were no entries in the Non or Pedigree Pet Olympian classes.
Best in Show were a superb selection of cats and kittens, the Burmese Best Adult and Overall Burmese, was Mr and Mrs Wilshaw’s Rossikhan Razzah Shah a handsome lilac boy.
Best kitten was Mr and Mrs Wilshaw’s Rossikhan Creamy Pete, a super Cream, as his name suggests.
Best Neuter was Miss Wrigglesworth’s UK OG IGrCh and Premier Rossikhan Marigold a lovely classy Chocolate lady.
The two Asian Best in Show exhibits were Overall Best and Best Adult - Mrs Covell-Palmer’s GrCh Covells Aunt Bessie a very pretty Asian Lilac Ticked Tabby Shorthair and Best Neuter, who was also the Olympian winner, IGrPr Pouncealot Sir Prancealot, a very handsome Asian Short haired Chocolate Silver Burmese Colour restriction.
Many congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the exhibitors who entered their cats and travelled all over to get to the hall. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the show next year.
