Hello my friends, Spot here!
Welcome to the fourth and final part of my review of 2012! I’ll be sharing some more cute kitten photos later on in this post! But first of all, let’s go back to October and share some memories of what happened then….
In early October, daddy took some of my most favourite-ever photos of Lula – she looks like such a sweet girl I think 🙂
But of course, we all know that looks can be deceptive and she has her naughty streak underneath all that innocence 🙂
The nights were starting to get much cooler, so Lula and I went back to sleeping in our big dog bed that mummy and daddy had bought us back in January – it’s so warm and cosy when we cuddle up together in there 🙂
We both went to a show in October – the Tabby Cat Club show. This was actually a bit of a milestone as it was the very first cat show mummy went to as an exhibitor just 12 short months earlier!
She had taken Lula there to see whether or not they would both enjoy it (I went to another one at end of October 2011 for the same reason and I won Best Kitten in Show!)
We had fantastic results at the 2012 show! Lula got her first Imperial Grand Premier certificate and Best of Breed. I got Reserve Grand Premier, my granddad Sabu beat me, but then I beat him to win Best of Breed!
My daddy had his camera just in the right place at the right time for this shot and managed to capture a great image of me chilling out on the squashy-down bit of the sofa 🙂
Then, my mummy managed to get a close up of me having a wash and showing off all the rough bits of my tongue! 🙂
October drew to a close and with it came Hallowe’en! Here I am trying to do my scary Hallowe’en roar! Are you frightened?
We still managed to spend time in our cat garden in November, even though winter was definitely on its way!
I love nibbling on all the different grasses daddy has planted for us! 🙂
When the ground gets too wet or too cold with frost, we can sit on the roof of our cat house so our paws are kept dry and warm 🙂
Daddy let Lula have a special treat! A supervised climb up the oak tree in the main garden – remember, this used to be her favourite tree when we had more freedom 😉
I went to the Cheshire Area Cat Club show in early November. I got a Reserve Grand certificate again, but the boy who beat me really is a lovely Bengal! But then, I managed to beat him, and two other boys, to win Best of Breed! This can happen because it’s a different judge judging the BoB than the certificates 🙂
Despite it being November, Lula still managed to find bugs to chase and pounce on!
Meanwhile, I much prefer the nice weather, so when it’s cold there’s nothing better than my snuggly bed 😉
The biggest cat show in the cat show calendar took place in November – the Supreme!
Lula went to this one and here you can see her in her decorated pen which is something different to the usual shows we go to 🙂
She did extremely well – she won her second Imperial Grand Premier certificate… you need five of these from different judges to earn the title, so it was good to get another under Lula’s belt 🙂
Not long after the Supreme, my mummy and daddy went to our Breeder’s house to take some photos there.
This is our cat-mummy, Pandora, and her litter of four, these are our half-brothers and sisters as they have a different cat daddy 🙂
Very cute I think 🙂
There was also another litter that daddy took photos of, there are six in this litter, this stunning little girl is going to be kept by our breeder 🙂 You can also see two more kittens in the background 🙂
December came, and along with the rain, we also had quite a frosty spell! Guess where I was……?? 🙂
As usual, Lula didn’t mind the weather and spent as much time as she could in our cat garden!
We went to our final show of the year – you may not be surprised to learn that Lula got her third Imperial Grand Premier certificate and Best of Breed, she is so clever 🙂
I came first in my breed class, out of 4, but the judge didn’t award me my Grand Premier certificate as he said my “type” was very good, but that my fur was too long 🙁
Once home again, the other cats, except Robbie, finally realised how great our squishy bed is!
Robbie decided that the new cat bed mummy and daddy had bought at the Supreme cat show was much more his thing! 🙂
Of course, December means it’s Christmas time, and we loved playing and posing for photos! 🙂
Lula even managed to get her face into my pic! 🙂
*** I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas / holiday period! 🙂 ***
But all good things must come to an end, and as 2012 draws to a close, all that’s left for all of us Bengal Cat World cats to do is to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yay! xxxxx
So that completes our review of our year! Please let me know if you have any questions, or if there are any of your favourite photos I have missed off! There are so many lovely pics, it really was very hard to choose the few to feature in these blog posts!
Take lots of care my friends, and I hope you all have a wonderful 2013!
Love from Spot xxxxx
