Girls’ Day Out!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

I’ve just woken up from a nice catnap in the warmth, listening to the wind howling outside and the rain pelting down. I’m so lucky to have a snuggly place or two to restΒ my weary head πŸ™‚

 

Anyway, I woke up to tell you all about the show yesterday where Annie was competing and Lula was showing off! πŸ˜†

 

I knew something was going on the day before the show as my daddy decided to give Lula a bath! Lula wasn’t all that impressed by it, but she seemed to scrub up really well! Annie had had a bath earlier in the week after she’d been out in the cat garden and rolled in some unimaginable things: they were not pleasant and quite smelly – silly girl! πŸ˜†

 

So the two girls were all dressed up with somewhere to go when Saturday morning (very early morning I might add) arrived and the hoomins were up way before the crack of dawn doingΒ their usual hoomin things. Then it was time for me to have some peace and quiet and some nice catnaps as they were soon gone and a nice calm re-emerged in my house πŸ˜‰

 

The show wasn’t too far away, and they battled through the stormy weather to get there nice and early. They were soon settled in their pens – Annie in her usual show pen which has to be all white and anonymous, but Lula in her posh exhibition pen where she once again strutted her showgirl stuff!

 

Lula is retired from competitive shows, but still really likes to go out and show off, so it was really great for her to have the opportunity at this show πŸ™‚ She was also right next to mummy’s stall so she had company all day long πŸ™‚

When she wasn’t strutting her stuff, she was either going out for a walk and checking out all the stalls…

She had a lovely rosette provided by the show which shows her posh pedigree name which my mummy loves! πŸ™‚

Meanwhile, whilst Lula was showing off to the visitors and trade stand holders, Annie was being judged in the competitive classes! She is now in the very top class – the Olympian! There are three levels to Olympian – you have to get 5 Olympian certificates from 5 different judges to earn the title ‘Olympian Bronze’; then 5 more for Silver and then 5 more for Gold! As you can imagine, it is very elite to be Olympian Gold as not only do you have to win all those certificates, but you’re also up against a lot more cats than for previous titles.

 

So this was Annie’s first attempt to win an Olympian certificate… and win it she did! What a clever girl! Here’s her certificate so you can see what it looks like! πŸ™‚

She was then up against a lovely boy for Best in Colour, but guess what? She won that too! πŸ™‚

Then it was her side classes and the first one was the one that mummy always wants her to win – Prettiest Female! She was against a very pretty girl for that, but she only went ahead and won it! πŸ™‚ Sweet!

Then, in her final class, she was up against 3 other cats for ‘Best Household Pet under 2 Years Old’… they had to wait a while for those results, but it was worth the wait as she went ahead and won that class too! Clever poppet!

Here she is in her pen with all her achievements on show!

And here’s her Olympian rosette which is now also in mummy’s office πŸ˜‰

So Annie had what is known as a ‘red card day’ which means she won every class she was entered into πŸ™‚ Β What a little star πŸ™‚

Then, it was time to pack up and head home with the weather even worse than it had been in the morning, though no-one was too worried about that πŸ˜‰

Our next show is in a few weeks where not only will Annie and Spike be going, but also little old me! It will be a brown spotty day out πŸ˜‰

Take care my friends! πŸ™‚

 

Love from

Spot
