Christmas Show News!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

I’m getting quite excited because I’ve been a very good cat all year long and I’m hoping for lots of presents from Santa πŸ™‚ I think I need some nice chicken treats and maybe a comfy pink cushion all to myself so I don’t have to share with the littlest pesky, aka Annie πŸ˜† I hope you get lots of nice gifts too πŸ™‚

 

Talking of the Peskies, I could tell on Friday that it was time for them to go to another show by the way my mummy was cleaning them and trimming their claws and getting the show bag ready…. what I hadn’t anticipated was that I was going with them! 😯 I thought it was a bit odd that she trimmed my claws too and gave me a wash and brush up! 😯 This was to be my first show in more than 18 months, I wasn’t sure if I would remember what to do (i.e. be nice to the judges and not growl at them or, worse still, bite them πŸ˜† )

 

My daddy has been a bit poorly, so she was taking us to the show on her own, although she did pick up a very nice young man called Lee on the way. I think she knew him as they seemed to talk a lot about the kind of things you hoomins talk about so I’m sure everything was above board πŸ˜† Lee did remark (several times) on how good we all were travelling in the car as it was quite a long way to go – about a two and a half hour trip each way πŸ™‚ But as I said before, I’m a very good boy and am easy to take anywhere πŸ˜‰ … (are you listening, Santa? πŸ˜‰ )

 

Anyways, we got to the show in plenty of time and mummy got our pens ready. Luckily, Spike and I were next door to each other, so that made things easier, though Annie was on the other side of the show hall. She gaveΒ us lots of cuddles, then went to check Annie, only to find that she had spilled her water all over her pen 😯 So she put her in with Spike whilst she sorted it all out and then waited for it to dry out πŸ™‚ This made the cuddling job easier too as all three of us were therefore together πŸ™‚

Pretty soon, though, Annie had to go back to her own pen as it was time for morning judging to start so mummy had to leave us and we were all on our best behaviour for the judges πŸ™‚

 

Meanwhile, mummy checked the results board regularly to find out how we had done πŸ™‚ Here are the overall results:

It wasn’t Annie’s day in terms of the main classes as she was up against 4 other cats for Olympian and didn’t get it, and up against two others for Best in Colour and didn’t get that either.

In her side classes, though, she came 3rd out of 6 for Prettiest Female; 2nd out of 3 for Any Shorthair under 3 years; and 1st out of 7 for The Cat with the Shiniest Coat! πŸ™‚ So not too bad in the end πŸ™‚

 

Spike and I were up against each other for the Imperial certificate and for Best of Breed. There were 5 good boys in total in the Imperial class and, by some stroke of luck, I was awarded the Reserve Imperial! (ie. second place) A nice TonkineseΒ won it πŸ™‚
For Best of Breed, it was only us two as there were only 2 brown spotted Bengal Neuters there and Spike beat me! Harrumph! πŸ˜†

 

We were in different side classes:
I came nowhere out of 11 in the Visitor class; but 1st out of 6 in the AV British or Foreign Senior class! Yay!
Spike came 3rd out of 6 in the Any Variety Foreign class and 1st out of 2 in the Bengal Cat Club Any Neuter class! πŸ™‚

 

So it was a pretty good day all round – not the best we’ve had but not the worst either πŸ˜‰

Here are some pics which I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for lol πŸ™‚

At the end of the show, mummy brought Annie to Spike’s pen whilst she clearedΒ up Annie’s πŸ™‚

Hey mate, what’s that smell?

Soon, mummy had cleared away all our pens and off we all went, with Lee too, back on the long road up north πŸ™‚ Again, we were all very good cats on the way home, though of course I was the best behaved and soon we were home to tell daddy all about our day πŸ™‚

So that was the last show of 2015 and we now have a bit of a break until the next one in late January. I wonder who mummy will be taking to that one? πŸ™‚

Take care my friends!

Love from

Spot
