Popular show ably run by my good friend Mary le Monnier, my thanks for the kind invite Mary! I was very grateful for Sandie Holloway stepping in at the last minute to steward when John had to work especially as I took over Jan Bradley’s classes too. I wish Jan a speedy recovery! These critiques will be brief and to the point, sorry ! owing to the large book.
RED, CREAM, OR TORTIE TABBY ADULT
1ST (CC&BOBW/H) CLAYTON’S BRITIKAT HOLLIE BERRY (19) RED TABBY F 1yr 2 mths. Rather a small and lightweight lass, nice red pattern and good ground colour, fraction muddled oysters though. Fairly good type. Tubular body, slim legs, lacks bone. Gold eyes but with a distinct green rim. Bite is level.
BOB: EDNEY’S GR CH ROCODANNE MATILDA (20E) Cracking tortie tabby!
BROWN. BLUE, CHOCOLATE OR LILAC TABBY ADULT
1ST CC@BOB EDNEY’S ALIDIX TILLEY ANNE (20) F 10MTHS Pretty typed lass of nice bone for age and balance. Fraction pinched in muzzle otherwise a nice looking cat. Brindled pattern muddled oyster, good warm ground colour, dark brown pattern not quite black but light was poor today. Bite is level.
1SY & BOB BLACKLEDGE’S KOLINGA I SCREAM M 4MTHS. My word what amazing bone for such a baby and such a gorgeous colour too. Cracking apple head shape, nice expression, cobby and thick set lad. Fairly short thick sound pale cream coat. Excellent bone, my nit pick is I would rather his eyes bigger and not quite as deep set. Tail thick.
2nd. HARDY’S STONNALL FLYBOY M 4MTHS Not got the bone of the winner, nice round head though, innocent expression, level bite. Rather flat coat, heavy agoutti pattern showing. Mid cream paling at roots. Rather large ears that I hope he grows into. Good eye colour.
BLACK SILVER TABBY KITTEN
1ST (BOB W/H) LATIMER’S CATYKES HARRY’S-BELLE M 6MTHS. Good width between large flared ears, rather tapering to a pointy muzzle, fawning to long nose and mouth and ears. Eye colour too dark needs less gold shade and more green and should be more rounded, particularly at this age. Brindled muddy pattern. Quite a good size and weight.
AC COLOURPOINTED KITTEN FEMALE
1ST & BOB WARD’S LARNICAT GEORGIES GIRL (40/3) 4MTHS Balanced, cobby, good type and coat, just a mite long but is dense. Good size and weight. Level bite. Mid blue round eyes, neat ears, good cheeks. Nice points match too. Good size and weight. Promising lass.
2nd SEGGIE’S DAISYOURR MADABOUTYOU (40/10) 3MTHS. Smaller girl but not without promise. Nice open type and large round eyes. Pretty face. Super coat. Good mingling but bluish tones today. Little straight across the top of the eyes, not fully rounded. Tabbied tail. Nice pale colours match quite well.
3rd. RILEY’S LILACMIST BLUE SKIES (40/8) 4MTHS. I must admit I conferred with another full judge on this kitten as she seems to be a bit of an anomaly colour wise. She has a very very dark bluish but with a hint of lilac nose with pink and bluish/ lilac and pink toned pads. Her points have a lilac look to them rather than a definite blue. The coat isn’t glacial white but a warm cream tone. I gather from the owner there is lilac in the pedigree so I advised her to check. Her head is rather long and egg shaped with a large bump to the nose which is rather long too I am afraid. Her ears are large and set fairly well. Level bite. Round eyes of pale blue. The coat is flat, needs more density. I also didn’t see any difference in the points colour for any cream, but rather just undercoat coming through. As there was a lilac tortie next door which showed a definite difference in points to body colour, this didn’t actually help this kittens case I am afraid. She also has very heavy tabby markings.
IMP GR PR NEUTER MALE
IMP PRPC FARMER’S GR CH & GR PR FANATIKAT LUGHNASADH 14A MN 4 YRS. Strapping lad of lovely open type and bone, heavily built, solid and muscular, super clean bright white thick short coat. Orange eyes, level bite. Fabulous preparation and balance. My nomination for Best neuter.

IMP GR PR NEUTER FEMALE
VESSEY’S CH & IGRPR SARGENTA URSINHA (30S) 5YRS. Lovely balanced very nicely spotted lass of very good type, bone and substance. Superb green eyes! My second choice for best neuter.
RES IMP GR PR. MCEWENS UK GR CH & IGR PR PENNYDOWN SNOWPEARL (39) 10YRS. Very well known lass who today was a little out of coat and eyes now paling with age bless her!
WHITE ORANGE EYED NEUTER
1ST PC FARMER’S GR CH FARJEM WHITE KNIGHT (14A) 1YR 11MTHS. On a different day this lovely lad would beat his father on type and coat but he was not in the best of preparations today, acne to his chin spoilt his clean white look and a little yellowing to the coat too. Otherwise I love his gorgeous type, balance and bone.
