A Year in our World – Part Four

Hello my friends, Spot here!


Welcome to the final part of my review of the year which covers October to December and what a busy three months it was! I have really struggled with choosing the photos for the blog today – it was so hard deciding what I should leave out as there are so many I could have shared ๐Ÿ™‚ ย But being as I postedย a random pic of me at the start of the last post, here’s a random pic of Lula to start things off today! ๐Ÿ˜†

High five, Lula!




Early October saw Lula, Spike and Annie go off to the Tabby Cat Club show in Warwickshire ๐Ÿ™‚ This was Spike and Annie’s second competitive show and I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count which number show it was for Lula. Once again, her Olympian class was very tough and she wasn’t placed, but in their subsequent reports, one of the judges said that she is: “A super gentle girl with plenty of star quality” so that was quite nice ๐Ÿ™‚

Spike did very well at the show, he won his breed class and two of his large side classes and was such a good boy, but was overshadowed slightly by Annie who not only won all but oneย of her classes, but also went on to be judged Best in Show Pedigree pet so was up for the final Best in Show Judging! There she beat the Best in Show Non Pedigree Pet to win Best in Show Overall Household Pet! What an achievement at only her second show! We were all so proud ๐Ÿ™‚

Also in October, that mysterious building I mentioned last time was finished, and it turned out it was a nice office for my mummy! ๐Ÿ™‚

But even nicer than that, it also meant our cat garden could be re-modelled and was made twice the size, incorporating the office too! So we now have even more space to run around in and more things to explore! ๐Ÿ™‚ And mummy can keep her eye on us if she’s in her office, though when we get cold or tired, we of course also go in there and have a nice catnap on the sofa ๐Ÿ™‚

We had two of our favourite cat shows in November – the Bengal Cat Club Show and the pinnacle of the show calendar, the Supreme!


At the Bengal Cat Club, Spike again did very well, winning almost all of his classes ๐Ÿ™‚ Again he was a very good boy too, except for when he spilt his water all over his pen ๐Ÿ˜ฏ It’s a good job mummy takes spare blankets with her ๐Ÿ™‚ But again, he took it all in his stride…

We didn’t dare believe that Annie would do as well as she did in her last show… but that’s exactly what she did! She won Overall Best in Show Household Pet for the second show running! What a clever girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

Three weeks later and it was time to go to the Supreme! Lula went on exhibition for the Bengal Cat Club and was impeccably behaved all day, she does like to show off though ๐Ÿ™‚



Annie and Spike both again did tremendously well! Annie won the special fun kitten class, beating lots and lots of other kittens; she came first in her breed class and also won best of breed too! ๐Ÿ™‚



Spike didn’t come anywhere in the special kitten class, but like Annie he won first place in his breed class and Best of Breed, but the difference was his breed class was one of the largest in the show! Such an achievement at that level to beat so many other wonderful Bengal kittens, again we were so proud, though Spikey was his usual chilled out self ๐Ÿ™‚

Phew! What a busy month that was!





We decided we’d be on our best behaviour in December as we wanted to make sure the nice man in red visited us at Christmas, though I’m not quite sure Spike got the memo saying that!

Lula and I are wondering what Spike’s doing up there?


I thought I’d at least pretend I liked theย two peskies and allowed them to share my perch ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s not like I do like them, you understand, but they just seem to follow me everywhere! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pretty soon, it was time for ourย final show of the year, the National! Again, Spike and Annie went and were very good kitties. They had an excellent show, though not as goodย as previous ones. Mind you, you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise if you looked at Annie’s pen!

The weather was quite reasonable most days, so we spent lots of time in the cat garden

And we also managed to get together for our very first group photo of all seven of us!

And then we had Christmas when our good behaviour paid off and we got lots of yummy treats ๐Ÿ™‚


Which pretty much brings our review to a close, my friends! I hope you enjoyed travelling the journey with us! Let’s hope this year brings lots more exciting things and here’s to a happy and successful 2015 to all of you!


Take care!

  1. Brilliant end to your blog, you and your Mummy have worked so hard remembering all that’s happened throughout the year. I love all the photos and re-living all the show triumphs of the peskies. Spotty cat you don’t fool us, so you say you don’t really like the peskies but whenever we see you these days you’re cuddled up to one or other of them, you’re basking in the glory of being the big, handsome brother showing the 2 little ones the ropes :-). Well done Spotty and Mummy, I’ve loved reading all about your year xx <3 <3

    1. Hello Diane! Thanks for your lovely comments ๐Ÿ™‚ We had to turn off our little widget thingy that sends you notifications because it was conflicting with something else on the website and causing problems ๐Ÿ™ We will try and see if we can find something else to replace it, but usually we post every Sunday and we always share the link on our Facebook page when we post something new ๐Ÿ™‚
