Full Supreme show news and pics!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

So the big day has come and gone for another year – yes we were at the Supreme Cat Show yesterday, the largest in our show calendar πŸ™‚

 

The day started off very early with mummy and daddy waking us up at 4am 😯 Yes you read that right – 4am! Lula, Friday and Robbie were on their toes straight away, but Harry and I decided we weren’t getting up that early, thanks very much! We only got up when the breakfast bowls began to get filled πŸ˜†

 

Then after the hoomins finally got ready (what takes them soooo long?), Lula and I jumped into our carriers and off we went in the car to the NEC at Birmingham. We got there very early, at about 6:30am, and joined the queue for vetting in – yes there was already a queue at that time though we were quite near the front of it!

 

Just after 7am the doors opened to allow us to get vetted in (the queue behind us was very long by this time) and we went to find Sue amongst the 15 or so vets who were there so she could look at us πŸ™‚ All cats entered in either the show itself or on exhibition have to be checked over by a vet before they’re allowed in – this is to make sure they have no infectious diseases or fleas or things like that πŸ™‚ They also check that all vaccination certificates are up to date πŸ™‚

 

Sue, our breeder, is the chief veterinary organiser and makes sure all the vets are invited and know what to do. Of course, we passed vetting in with flying colours and went into the hall where we found our pens. Β Luckily we weren’t too far from each other, even though Lula was next to the stall and I was in the area where all the competing cats were.

 

So daddy looked after me while Lula and mummy (OK, so it was more mummy) set up the stall – it takes a good couple of hours to do, but Lula made sure she supervised well πŸ™‚

 

Then, at 9am the doors were open to the public and not too long after that it was time for me to be judged! I was in a class with 4 other cats, including our older brother, Star! He has the same cat mummy and daddy but was born a year or so before us πŸ™‚

I was a good boy

 

The judge was very thorough and checked over all 5 cats very carefully

Hmmm…..looking thoughtful!

 

But then she made her decision and she started off with 5th place (which went to Star), and then 4th, and then 3rd – me! πŸ™‚ My mummy and daddy were very proud of me as I had been so well behaved and didn’t make lots of noise like Lula would have done πŸ™‚

 

Cats are only entered into one class in the Supreme, so that was my work done for the day! πŸ™‚ Meanwhile, Lula was doing a good job helping out on the stall

Good job, Lula! πŸ™‚

 

And she was even allowed to explore a little bit of the hall!

I had lots and lots of wonderful friends come to see me (they also went to see Lula as well) πŸ™‚

And some of them even bought me treats!

Hmmm… now, shall I eat those treats, or jump out of the pen??

 

But then, after a whirlwind day, it was time to pack up and go home and get some much-needed rest! Until next year! We will almost certainly go to other shows before then, but none are at all like the special Supreme!

 

Take care my friends!
Love from Spot xxxxxx

    As for Lula, she obviously did great work in attracting a lot of fans to Mum’s stand . Hope there were lots of sales so that many people went home with some of the marvellous goodies on offer.

    1. The stand was busy all day long, Mavis – my mummy said she didn’t get a chance to sit down all day, let alone eat much, and was very tired by the time she got home – but we all enjoyed every minute of it <3 xxx
