My thanks to Mary for her kind invitation and for Carol Gardner for stepping in when I realised I had not booked a steward!
AC PREMIER MALE
GR PC Tolhursts’s Ch& Pr Vectensian Sporty Sam (19) 6.5.04 He is a little immature for his age. Nice body and bone although a little long and tall. His head has good width between his medium but wide based ears. The muzzle is a fraction pointy, good cheeks. Level bite and chin firm but slopes back. Round orange eyes. His coat is fairly crisp and dense and short. Nice rich red colour to his pattern but the oysters are muddled and the butterfly a little vague due to undercoat coming through. Necklaces evident. He is a little nervous and seems afraid of being handled.
ANY OTHER COLOUR ADULT KITTEN HOUSELHOLD PET
1ST Rossi’ & Edgars’ Purdy a Blue tabby with a super semi-long coat. She is almost foreign in type and very pretty, lovely green eyes that have a super soft but alert expression! Lovely weight and condition. A very nice kitten!
AC BSH ARISTOCRAT
1ST Wells’ Westenbach Donny Brook (30b) F 31.5.08 Promising chocolate spotty lass! Fabulous eye colour, but a fraction deep set eyes. Good type and bone and body shape. Very nice coat, super length and texture. Good rounding to head and cheeks. Acceptable bite, firm chin. Lovely warm pattern with good contrast to ground. Cute spotty paws and good tail.
Unplaced was pen 46. Sadly this lilac is totally the wrong coat colour as it is almost blue and has a long soft uneven coat. Very pale eye colour and his head isn’t really round at all. Not at all up to the standard I am afraid.
AC BSH ADOLESCENT ADULT
2 Interesting boys! I fancy the positions could easily be reversed as they mature!
2nd. Ruse Kabenbe Jack The Lad (31a) M 28.9.08 Larger heavier lad but today tall and long, he just needs to fill out his frame bless him! Unbalanced ears to head at present. Large broad head shape with good fullness to cheeks. Pleasing open type. Large round orange eyes just a mite deep set. Good bite and chin. Mid blue coat that is sound to roots, a little silvered at the tips, very good length and texture. Correct amount of white to colour ratio. Correct tail.
AC BSH KITTEN UNDER 6 MTHS MALE
1ST Zerilli’s Willowood Charleu Muggins (31a) M 17.5.09 Born on my birthday this lad is such a promising chap! Today he is fractionally out of balance as he has had a growth spurt I fancy! Congratulations on Best Kitten.
2nd Howard’s Edward Bailey (17) M 6.5.09 Small lad, who is rather too slender boned for my personal liking and has a long soft coat that is far too dark a cream and is heavily spotted and lacks density. His head type is acceptable but he needs to grow into his rather large ears and his head is out of balance with his body at the moment. Lovely orange colour to his round eyes though!
AC BSH MAIDEN KITTEN UNDER 6 MONTHS FEMALE
1ST Holloway’s Rayanshel Color By Numbers (22a) 1.5.09 Super cobby and balanced young lady with lovely open type, large orange eyes and correct bite, chin and good cheeks. Super dense, short coat. Better patching on one side but this is often the case with this colourway. Nice tone to the blue and cream, both sound. Excellent bone! Also a little purrbox!
2nd Zerilli’s Willowood Treacle-Moon (28) Pretty, cobby balanced girl also of good bone and type. Large round orange eyes. Her coat is not quite as short as the winners but it is dense. Good mingling and colour tones, just a little silvered. Excellent weight.
3rd. Tilley’s Skellum Honeybun (17) 25.5.09 Small lass, rather a dark spotty cream. Quite pinched at the moment which spoils her balance.
AC BSH MAIDEN KITTEN
1ST Crowther’s Trubrit Black Tulip (15) 15.4.09 Balanced lass of good type. Round well opened orange eyes. Good bite, chin and cheeks. Cobby, good weight. Crisp short dense coat. Very nice!
2nd Rayanshel Kisschase(28) 1.5.09 Also a lovely kitten who has very good type and body shape. Good expression and eye colour, just a mite square in the muzzle. Her coat is well mingled just a little darker phased blue though, nice pale cream. Both sound. Also a purrbox!
3rd. Tilley’s Kellum Honeybun

Large copper eyes, well rounded Good bite, chin and cheeks. Cobby with short thick legs. Even pale cream coat that is short dense and crisp and sound to roots.
