BALINESE & SIAMESE CAT CLUB – 18 JULY 2009 – BRENDA PEARCE
Lovely show with a very good entry and some superb cats to judge. Many thanks to Sylvia and the Committee for inviting me, and working so hard to make the day successful which I am sure it was. My grateful thanks also to Jo Hudson who stepped in to steward for me at the last minute. Although quite new to the job, Jo handled all the cats and paperwork superbly – I was very impressed! I hope you enjoyed your day as much as I did Jo and will steward again for me soon.
AC BALINESE/SIAMESE GRAND CHAMPION MALE
GR CH, ARMSTRONG’S CH JOHPAS RED ROUE. (32a) 19.10.07.
Red Point Siamese. Excellent type and style – I was thrilled to hear that this certificate made him up to Grand. Superb strong wedge head with lovely size to wide based ears, beautifully set to follow the lines of his wedge. Strong profile, good chin, level bite. Gorgeous eyes and expression – deep vivid blue in colour. Long well muscled body, tall and very elegant in stature. Whip tail needs an extra inch – just a tiny bit of stud tail at the base which he has had treated. Bright red/gold points well matched on his ears mask and tail. Some colour on his legs which, as one would expect, was paler in tone. Un-shaded warm white body – contrast excellent – his coat a touch long but of good texture and well prepared. Gentle temperament – beautifully presented - congratulations on his further achievement later in the day – Best Exhibit no less!!
RES, MARTIN’S GR CH GLENTHORNE CONSTANTINE. (24) 14.12.05.
Seal Point Siamese. A very handsome and mature gentleman with a truly wonderful temperament. Strong long wedge head, tiny pinch to muzzle, large wide based ears beautifully set and flared. Very good strong profile, chin goes back a bit, the bite acceptable. Bright vivid blue oriental eyes – lovely expression. Long hard and muscular body with elegant neckline and long strong legs. Good whip tail. Very dark well matched seal points – just warm enough. Body shaded but still with plenty of contrast – his coat beautifully short and close. Looking most regal relaxing in his double pen.
AC BALINESE/SIAMESE GRAND CHAMPION FEMALE
GR CH, PUMMELL’S CH FURRYFACE ATHENA. (32/3) 8.11.06.
Chocolate Tabby Point Siamese. A very attractive and mature looking queen. Strong even wedge head with large wide based and well set ears. Very good straight profile, deep firm chin, spot on level bite – lovely clean and sparkling white teeth. Lovely expression and excellent oriental shape and set to her eyes which although show good depth of blue, perhaps could be a touch more intense. Mid length body firm and well toned, slim legs, good whip tail with clear rings for about ½ the length. Mid chocolate tabby markings which ideally could be a touch warmer, but they were all well defined. Good thumb prints. Clear M, single cheek ribbons and pin prick whisker spots to her mask. Paler leg bars and arm bands. Lightly shaded ivory body - superb short, close fitting coat – beautifully prepared. Excellent presentation – congratulations on making her up to Grand today.
RES W/H, 2 SIBLEY’S CH ABICASA PRINCESS ABIGAILLE. (24n) 13.2.07.
Caramel Point Siamese. A lovely big strong queen - very impressive for both type and substance. Strong wedge head with large ears, wide at the base and very well set. Near straight profile, firm chin, level bite. Slightly full dark blue eyes. Long strong body, lovely feel to her. Long strong legs. Long tapered tail. My problem was with her colour which, given the day light available in this hall, was certainly open to conjecture. The points were a very dark blue tone, well matched on ears and mask, the tail darker, but showing no sign of the sludgy brownish overtones I would expect to see in a mature Caramel Point. Body heavily shaded giving little contrast – her coat of superb texture, very short and close. Presentation and temperament both excellent.
CHOCOLATE POINT SIAMESE ADULT
CC W/H, 1 GRAY’S LYNNOX KASANOVA. 23.9.08.
A handsome youngster of good overall type, but very unsure of himself. Long wedge head, small muzzle pinch. Ears large and wide at the base – well set but he holds them almost flat with nerves. Near straight profile, firm chin, level bite. Eyes of good oriental shape and set, but held full and requiring much more depth and intensity to the colour. Long elegant body and neckline – well muscled, and developed in line with his age. Long slender legs. Long whip tail. Mid warm chocolate points, not fully developed on his mask as yet with pale chin and whisker pads plus ‘specs’. Un-shaded ivory body – excellent contrast, his coat short and close. Beautifully presented, but so frightened – I understand from his owner that unfortunately he has had a previous bad experience.
AC BALINESE/SIAMESE GRAND PREMIER MALE
GR PR, TOBIAS’S IGR PR SHERMESE FUNANDGAMES. (32/1) 9.9.06.
Seal Tabby Point Siamese. Lovely boy – excellent type. Long strong wedge head with large wide based and beautifully set ears. Straight profile, chin fades, bite level. Very expressive dark blue oriental eyes. Long well nourished muscular body with long strong legs and long whip tail, well ringed for about ½ the length. Seal tabby markings overall well defined. Clear round thumb prints. M, single cheek ribbons and dark whisker spots to his mask. Slightly paler leg bars and arm bands. Lightly shaded body – very good contrast. Coat of excellent texture, a touch long but close lying. Wonderful temperament – beautifully presented.
RES, ESTERFORD-HOWARD’S CH & PR MAPU MALACHITE. (32/8) 18.6.07.
Caramel Tabby Point Siamese. A handsome lad, not quite so big and masculine as the winner but of very good overall type. Strong mid length wedge head with large ears, wide at the base and set to follow the lines of his wedge. Very good straight profile with a firm chin. Teeth rather untidy with quite a few missing, but the bite level. Gorgeous eyes and expression – deep sparking blue in tone. Long well muscled body – nice firm feel to him. Long slender legs. Tail needs a touch more length for perfect balance. Lilac based caramel tabby markings, overall well defined. No thumb prints (not unusual in a caramel tabby). Slightly muted M, single ribbons and pale pin prick whisker spots to mask. Shadow leg bars and arm bands. Good rings for the best part of his tail. Virtually un-shaded off white body - glistens over his back. Superb texture to coat, very short, close and beautifully prepared. Presentation and temperament both excellent.

RES, FREEMAN’S CH & PR KRISTIKATS SERAPHINA. (24c) 9.12.06.

PC W/H, MARTIN’S PR ABICASA PEER GYNT. 14.2.08.
A very stylish boy – head on quite stunning to look at, however he does have a noticeable protrusion at the back of his head which was my reason for withholding. I learnt from his owner afterwards that this is the result of an injury, so hopefully it will not be permanent.

Dark blue based caramel points with correct brownish overtones. Off white shaded body. Beautifully prepared, superb short, close coat. Delightful temperament – excellent presentation.

A big strong boy of good overall type and balance. Long wedge head with large ears, wide at the base butt which he holds slightly forward. Good profile, firm chin, level bite. Eyes a touch full in shape and require much more depth and intensity to the colour. Long well nourished muscular body with long strong legs and a long well tapered tail. Blue based caramel points, quite well matched and showing correct brownish overtones. Some shading to his off white body. Coat of good texture. Lovely temperament and beautifully presented.
