Hello my friends, Spot here!
So I’m going to tell you all about Annie’s latest jaunt to the cat show 🙂
The show she went to yesterday was held at the Wood Green Animal Shelter in Cambridgeshire (UK) so it was quite a trek 🙂 It was a very early start as the hoomins were giving Sue, our breeder and Duty Vet at the show, a ride there.
So with the dawn just peeking out over the horizon, they set off and I went and found my nice pink cushion and had some lovely sleeps on there on my own. In fact the only disturbance was a bit of snoring from Friday, but I managed to get some good naps in despite that 😆
I digress… they arrived at the show nice and early and Sue was able to vet Annie in without any issues, so it was time to go and get settled in her pen 🙂
Annie likes to have a good look around her and see who her neighbours are (she’s a bit nosey if I’m honest) though not everyone was there at that time of the morning.
It didn’t take long for the show hall to fill up, though, and soon it was time for morning judging to start 🙂 This was a double show – the Kensington show and the Eastern Counties show, so there were a lot of classes to be judged!
Annie of course is going for her Olympian Silver title which is the most important class out of them all. She currently has three Olympian Silver certificates and needs another two to earn the title. But these are the very top classes, so the competition is very strong!
In Annie’s Olympian class there were 7 beautiful girls entered, though one was absent… this still meant she had to beat 5 others to be awarded the coveted certificate.
The results were a little slow to come in, but they were worth waiting for!
Annie didn’t the Olympian for the Kensington show 🙁 But she did get it for the Eastern Counties show – Yay! 🙂 This means she now only needs one more certificate to be an Olympian Silver and then she will go on to compete for more Olympians certificates to reach Gold!
She also won Best in Colour for the Eastern Counties show and for the Kensington show too! 🙂
In the side classes (which aren’t as important), she didn’t do so well 🙁
In the Eastern Counties show, she came 3rd out of 5 for “Prettiest female” and 3rd out of 5 for “Any Variety Female”.
In the Kensington side classes, she came 2nd out of 5 for “Prettiest female” and 1st out of 2 for “Best Presentation Short Hair”.
My mummy always likes her to win “Prettiest” so these are not good results 😆
But of course, the main thing was she got another precious Olympian, and she also met lots of lovely friends who came to the show especially and Annie drew lots of admirers from the general public when she was out of her pen, having a cuddle with mummy or daddy 🙂
Here’s some more pics 🙂
In two week’s time, Annie is going to another double show where she’ll have the chance to compete for the Olympian, but we’re not counting any chickens 🙂 They always say the last one is the hardest one to get 🙂
And I heard a little mumble that I’m also entered into one of the shows! How about that my friends? I get to catnap inside a nice pen all day instead of at home 😆
Take care my friends!
