Great day at the Bengal Cat Club Show!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

As you’re probably aware, I had some lovely, peaceful quality time yesterday as those peskies went off to the Bengal Cat Club show πŸ™‚ That meant I could have my pick of the beds for some lovely catnaps where I dreamed of chicken treats and warmer times πŸ™‚

 

But I guess you’d rather hear about their day than mine? *sigh* OK, I’ll pass on what they told me πŸ™‚

 

Yet again, I got woken up far too early though the hoomins thought they could get away with it by giving us our breakfast. But I am not one for eating in the middle of the night, so I carried on with my snooze through all the shenanigans 😯 Β  I knew it would be dry food and there would be plenty of it, so I got up a few hours later and had breakfast in my own time, thank you very much πŸ˜‰

 

By that time, they’d managed to drive through some pretty wet weather and got to the show safe and sound. It was in a little town hall in Wiltshire, a lovely part of the world.

 

The peskies sailed through vetting in and pretty soon were settled in their pens. Annie’s was next to the window so she had a great view every time she came out and watched all the comings and goings on the High Street πŸ™‚

She soon got comfy in her squishy donut bed

Spike was only a short distance away, he enjoyed a bit more breakfast and then chilled out on the floor rather than in his nice comfy bed, silly boy πŸ™‚

It was soon time for morning judging, so the hoomins went to the little cafe in the room next door to let the judges get on with their important jobs πŸ™‚ After a while, the results started to trickle through but I’ll let you know them all in one go to save you having to wait πŸ˜‰

 

Spike:Β 

– Reserve Imperial out of 3

– Didn’t get Best of Breed – 10 in class

– 2nd out of 5 in one side class, unplaced in the other one

 

Annie:

– Awarded the Imperial. Which she didn’t actually need as she has already reached that level. But she was entered into that class due to the way the closing dates work and the fact that the Supreme where she got the final Imperial she needed, was after the closing date for this show…. I know it’s all confusing πŸ™‚

– Didn’t get Best of Breed – 5 in class

– 1st out of 5 in one side class, 1st out of 2 in another side class and 2nd out of 5 in her final side class.

 

So overall the results were pretty good and the hoomins couldn’t wait to come back in and see them at lunchtime πŸ™‚

 

Spike was happy to see them too and told them so in a very loud voice! πŸ™‚

But then he chilled out a little and had a stretch on his blanket

Annie was being a good girl and was so happy to see them and gave them lots of kitty kisses and made cookies with her paws Β πŸ™‚

Then it was time for the all important Best in Show judging! Spike wasn’t a contender as he’d not won his title class, nor best of breed, but Annie had won her Imperial, so she was in with a chance!

 

They read out all the pen numbers for the pedigree section, then it was on to Household Pets where they read out the non-Pedigree pet before finally reading out the pen number for Best in Show Pedigree Pet … and it was Annie!! Yay! This was the 2nd year in a row she won this!

 

So mummy took her to the posh pens where the Best in Show Non Pedigree Pet is judged against the Best in Show Pedigree Pet for Overall Best in Show Household Pet!

She was far more interested in what they were doing on that table behind her though, than what was going on for best in show!

The judge took ages to decide between the two, she really struggled to make up her mind!

But in the end, she awarded it to the stunning non-Pedigree pet, so Annie wasn’t awarded the Overall Best in Show. But that mattered not, the hoomins were overjoyed and meanwhile, Annie went back to her posh pen, pulled down the drapes and carried on staring at what was going on at that table behind her!

But she loved her posh rosette and she won lots of lovely prizes, so she is a clever girl too πŸ™‚

A short while later, it was time to pack away and head back home where we all had a special tea and some nice chicken treats (which I’d been dreaming about all day) πŸ™‚

 

Take care my friends!

  1. Wow, Annie, that’s certainly a splendiferous rosette ! Dad’s really got to set up a Trophy wall for all the ribbons and stuff you guys have won over the years. You are doing so well already Annie and Spike has obviously got so much potential for the future as he continues to grow and fill out his handsome frame. It’s good to see you babes are so comfortable at the Shows and win or lose you’re real Champions to us regardless.

  2. Awwww Annie, what a splendid girl you are! Spike is a really good boy also. You are both cuties! πŸ˜€ Thank you Spot for letting us follow a little what had happened at the show! <3
