Lovely to be here again at one of my local shows, my thanks to Eleanor Grey of the Stonemarr BSH prefix for her gentle handling of the cats and for her enthusiasm with the other breeds particularly the Burmese! Eleanor handles the cats with ease and she is embarking on the stewarding scheme so I can recommend her!
AC BSH PREMIER FEMALE
GR PR GREEN’S PR TANGLEKEYS BOMBAYSAFFIRE (40/9) 10.7.05 I have had the pleasure of judging this gorgeous lass before and am delighted to see how balanced she has now become. Super British type and conformation with short well-boned legs and fat rounded paws. Tail is broad at base tapering to a rounded tip showing chocolate and reds. Apple head type with excellent width between neat well set ears, rounded profile leading to a short broad straight nose with a level bite and good depth to chin finished off by chubby fat cheeks. Cobby body of very good weight and is solid to hold. Excellent broad chest and flanks. Short dense crisp coat of a mostly clear body colour with excellent contrast against a mix of lovely mid warm chocolate and various shades of red mingling to her points, all matching really well. Lovely mid blue eye colour, very good to see this! Her eyes on occasions have been known to be held closed but today they were open and round. Handled well.
BLACK ADULT MALE
1ST CC NEWMAN’S MOORMIST MAGICIAN 12.4.08 I must admit I deliberated for some time on this cat due to his coat! Overall he is a nice size and weight for his age with good bone to his short legs and has rounded paws. Tail is fractionally short but nice breadth at the base. He is a balanced cat, which won me over in the end today; his head is a good size to his body, nice width across the brow between medium ears. His nose is short and broad, eyes are a super orange but I would prefer them, although rounded, larger. Bite is level, chin ok but he is fractionally square in the muzzle, very nice cheeks. Nice expression. Cobby well boned body, nice breadth across the chest and flanks. His coat is, well, silky! It’s a good depth of black, is sound but lays flat and is too soft; it needs more density and life. I actually mused that he might have been bathed? Would be interested to know? All in all I decided he had other attributes that allowed me to award, if not I would have witheld most certainly.
BLACK ADULT FEMALE
1ST CC ZERILLI’S WILLOWOOD WEDNESDAY ADDAMS 27.3.08 loved the name! Balanced and cobby lass, pretty British head type and conformation with a thick tail, a tad short to balance.

1ST PC & BOB GRIBBENS’ TRYANITE THOMASINA (21) 15.9.03 What a beautiful example of a black tortie, I recall her now from when she was on the show bench as an entire lass wowing judges!

2nd GREETHAM’S LORRCLAWS TEDDY B (16) M 14.5.08 Loved this lad too, very nice british type, equally worthy of 1st place! I am a sucker for a “pretty boy” with a soft expression and he has this. Lovely type and cheeks, super round expressive eyes, level bite and good chin. Well-developed lad, plenty of time on his side but promising for his age. Super pale blue coat, short dense and crisp but slightly silvered. Also one to watch!

2nd WEBB’S KOLINGA DIABLO (16) M 21.7.08Solid well grown lad but out of balance as yet. His head is round but tapers to a slight point, good cheeks and plenty of width between his rather large ears. Slightly small gold eyes, faint green tinge. Short nose, level bite but his chin slopes back. Cobby well developed body. His coat is a slightly darker blue, currently uneven in tone, crisp to touch but uneven in length too at present. Tail thick but a tad short.
