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 AND 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 😆
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! 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’s her breed class rosette:
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:
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 🙂 I did get a rosette of my own for 2nd place though:
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 🙂
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 🙂
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 😉
Well, I’m going to go and eat my jubilee tea now! Speak again soon 🙂
