We love long weekends!

Hello everyone!

 

I’m very happy because it’s an extra l-o-n-g weekend here in the UK!! We’ve had not only Caturday and Sunday, but Monday ANDΒ Tuesday are public holiday days too! This is to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee – she’s been on the throne for 60 years. 60 years!! Gosh, I can’t even imagine that amount of years! I think she must be quite bored of doing that job by now πŸ˜†

 

So, we’ve had a busy weekend so far! We went to the Merseyside Cat Club show yesterday which took place near Liverpool. Lula did very well! Β She came first in her breed class and also got first place in both of her side classes! Here she is in her pen:

And here’sΒ her breed class rosette:

1st Place!

She also, more importantly, got her third Premier Certificate which means she can now claim the title of Premier Cat (please see my cat show corner page if you want an explanation of these things!).

 

We have to get in touch with the GCCF now to make it all official, and then in future shows she can try and get to Grand Premier! Here’s all of her Premier Certificates:

Isn't she a clever girl?

Mummy also entered us both into a special Diamond Jubilee class – but there were also 18 other cats entered of different breeds, and they only awarded first place which went to another cat. Oh well!

 

I didn’t have such a good show as Lula. I came second in my breed class. I was beaten by a very nice cat who was at his first show! But he was lovely, so I don’t mind that he came in front of me πŸ™‚ I did get a rosette of my own for 2nd place though:

2nd place ain't so bad!

I then got a first place in one of my side classes (Yay!!) and a 4th place in my other one (boo!!).

 

Here’s me behaving in my pen πŸ™‚

Being as I didn’t get my Premier Certificate, I’ve still got to get two more from two different judges before I can call myself a Premier Cat like Lula! But mummy has a cunning plan!! The next show we are going to is two-shows-in-one! This happens from time-to-time, but it basically means I have two chances at the next show of getting a PC which will get me to Premier Cat if I get them πŸ™‚

 

But that’s not for a few weeks yet, so in the meantime, we’ll just carry on playing in the field and running around in the garden like the pet cats that we really are πŸ˜‰

 

Well, I’m going to go and eat my jubilee tea now! Speak again soon πŸ™‚

  1. Congratulations to you both. In my eyes, you are both Premier Cats, whether some judge recognises that fact or not!! Good luck for next time Spot and, in the meantime, keep enjoying life at home (that’s what you’re really here for, after all) πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Heather! Mummy has been in touch with the GCCF today and sorted out Lula’s title – that means she’s also going to the next show and will start to compete for her Grand title, though it gets much tougher the further you go! So we’ll see how we get on πŸ™‚ Meanwhile, we’re playing outside in between the rain showers πŸ™‚
