Hello my friends, Spot here!
I can’t believe the weekend went so fast! It was over in flash – I hope you all enjoyed yours? I know my good friend, Diane, will just be starting hers later as she has Tuesdays and Wednesdays off, I think it’s nice to have different days off to everyone else, don’t you?
One of the reasons our weekend sped by was because both Lula and I went to the National Cat Club show on Caturday. This is one of the furthest-away venues we go to, it’s around a 3 hour drive. Mummy said that any more than that and it wouldn’t be fair on us. We are very good travellers in the car, though, we are so quiet… mummy has to look into the back seats sometimes and make sure we’re still there! I was quite loud at times coming home though, as I wanted my dinner. I did eat quite a lot at the show, but I got hungry again – it must’ve been all the excitement 🙂
Here’s a photo of me at the show chilling out! It’s quite good going there for a cat nap, you just have to wake up when the judges come round to look at you 🙂
You’ll see my rosette in the background there – it’s red which in the UK means first place, which was great! I beat two other Bengal boys (a brown and a snow) to earn that, but I didn’t quite achieve my Grand certificate – the judge man is quite strict and he withheld it as he said my fur is too long and fluffy 🙂 Purrsonally, I am quite proud of my fur, so I don’t mind if the judge man didn’t like it – everyone is entitled to their opinions 🙂
Lula did so well again, she is leaving me waaaay behind in her list of achievements! She got her 3rd Imperial certificate – she beat a lovely Abyssinian and a gorgeous Asian Tabby girl to win that! We were so pleased as I bet it was hard for the judge to reach her decision!
This was our last show for a little while as our next one isn’t until February…. we will let you into a little secret, but please don’t tell our Uncle BooBoo (he who did so well at the Supreme show a couple of weeks ago) – he is a fantastic cat as you’ve probably seen, he earned his Imperial Grand Premier title just before his 2nd birthday and Lula said she would like to try and beat that brilliant achievement 😀 Lula needs 2 more certificates to earn hers, but we’re not 2 years old until mid-May! So it’s certainly achievable, though of course nothing is guaranteed in life – it’s just a bit of fun between my mummy and Uncle BooBoo’s mummy really 🙂
Here’s a final photo of me!
Take care my friends!
Love from Spot xxxx
