BRISTOL & DISTRICT CAT CLUB
18TH APRIL 2009
Sincere thanks to Elaine, Lisa and John for the invitation to judge at Bristol, the show ran like clockwork under the now well established and very organised team of show managers. My steward once again was the very able Richard Lord who very kindly stepped in at the 11th hour when Penny Jackson was detained at home on maternity duty. Thanks once again Richard for your very good company and enthusiastic and kind handling of the cats.
IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER FEMALE
IGPR WITHHELD HUTCHINGS GR PR WILLHAVETODO IMJUSTDEVINE 43e FN 4/8/07
very anxious young lady who we had to persuade out of her pen, quite nice overall type with good head and large ears that probably have a good flare but she would insist on flattening them right back. Pale green oriental eyes and straight profile, I would have liked a little more depth to her chin and her bit is a fraction untidy now as she loses some canine teeth. Long slender body with short close coat standard tortie shaded with good mingling of black and red, slender long legs when she could be persuaded to unfold them with neat paws and long whip tail which she held firmly tucked under herself. I really don’t like to withhold but she really was not showing herself at all hiding under her blanket right at the back of her pen and I felt that she really rather lacked in show preparation and presentation, maybe she would have been happier she felt more comfortable.
1 CC & BOB WILLS KASSALIC FORBIDDEN SECRET 29 F 25/6/08
quite promising young queen only just adult and in full season, quite nicely balanced head with huge well placed flared ears and lovely deep green oriental eyes, good strength of profile but she would benefit from a slightly deeper chin but her bite is level. Graceful neck lines and slender long body with warm chestnut coat that appears sound and lovely soft texture, maybe a fraction long. Slender legs with dainty oval paws and lovely length of whip like tail, lovely natured girl well presented, I would just like to know why she was not entered for her breed show?
ORIENTAL LILAC ADULT
BOB THOMPSON’S GR CH CLAERPENTON PIMPERNEL 29c M 23/3/07
lovely big mature lilac boy with well balanced strong head and large flared with good width between. Straight profile with quite nice depth of chin, level bite and oriental set and shaped green eyes. Solid muscular long body with nice pinkie lilac toned coat that is basically sound although a fraction longer than desired and slightly woolly in texture but he is obviously a working boy. Slender long legs with neat paws and long whip tail which has a little stud tail near the base, he would just benefit from a good firm stroking with a chamois before he comes out, good natured boy.
ORIENTAL CINNAMON ADULT MALE
1 CC & BOB DAWE’S CH WESTGARTH FOOLSGOLD 37k M 23/3/08
really stylish young cinnamon boy with wonderful strength of head and huge flared and wide based ears. Brilliant green oriental eyes and excellent profile with lovely strong chin and level bite and his head is carried very elegantly on long neck. Svelte long body he is solid muscle and short close lying sound rich cinnamon coat with virtually no ghosting of any kind. Slender legs with neat oval paws and lovely long whip tail to balance, an extremely handsome young boy with a temperament to match, he was my choice for best adult.
SEAL POINT SIAMESE KITTEN MALE
1 & BOB LODWIG’S MAFDET MAFIOSO 24 M 4/10/08
young man with lovely strength of head and large wide based flared ears and oriental blue eyes the colour of which varied from deep almost violet blue to quite a pale blue within seconds along with his rather unpredictable temperament which leaves something to be desired for one so young. Lovely strong profile with deep chin and level bite with a well developed seal brown mask. Slender body of good overall length and development for his age and clear cream coat that is fractionally long but close lying and in lovely condition. Long legs with neat oval paws and well matched warm seal brown stockings and very expressive and at time rather angry seal brown whip tail of good length. Nicely presented but a pity about his mood which so markedly varied the eye colour but I gave him the benefit of the doubt overall I just hope his temperament settles for the future.
SEAL POINT SIAMESE KITTEN FEMALE
1 SIDNELL’S LOLUJA MISSHOITYTOITY 24 F 23/10/08
very friendly young lady with nice even wedge and huge wide based ears that are well set and lovely deep blue oriental eyes, slight dip in profile at the moment but good depth of chin and level bite with seal brown mask developing quite well but there is some evidence of brindling just now which gives her the slight impression of spectacles. Well grown for her age with good length of slender body with basically clear cream coat, just a little light shading to lower back. Slender legs with dainty little paws and well matched seal brown stockings although the colour is still developing, lovely long whippy tail and a delight to handle.
AC BALINESE KITTEN
1 & BOB TWYFORD’S KITAMBER HEPIZABAH 61et F 9/12/08
an absolutely delightful young seal tortie tabby baby girl with nicely balanced wedge and super deep blue oriental eyes. Straight profile with lovely deep chin and level bite huge wide based ears with tiny tufts and seal brown and red tortie tabby mask developing well, showing facial tabby markings among the tortie. Good length of slender little body with clear cream coat that lies really smoothly against her form with length quite promising for her age. Long slender legs and neat paws with breaks of colour on all four feet along with some leg bracelets and long tail with good early signs of a plume starting to develop with good breaks in colour and faint tail rings, she was absolutely full of energy and mischief enjoying wreaking her pen and attention seeking.
2 HART’S HARTRIDGE HEVENLY SOLITAIRE 61d F 20/12/08
sweet little red point baby with medium length even wedge and large wide based ears that are quite well set and pale blue eyes a fraction full in shape. Straight profile with good chin and level bite with red colour starting to develop on her mask and ears. Proportionate length of slender little body with clear off white coat that is just very baby fluffy at present with very little length as yet. Slender legs with dainty paws with a tiny amount of red just evident on her paws and along the length of her tail but not really any signs of a plume just now, a darling baby well presented.
AC SIAMESE/BALINESE JUNIOR ADULT
1 POUNDS CH JOMESE JENNY MANYDOTS 32b1 F 3/8/07
pleasing seal tortie point queen with large wide at base flared ears with flashes of red and lovely deep blue oriental eyes, straight profile with good chin and level bite and full seal brown and red tortie mask. Lovely long slender body that is quite shaded although there is still good contrast, her coat is fractionally long but lies well against her form in excellent condition. Slender long legs with neat oval paws with seal and red tortie stocking and long whippy tail, all point show good breaks in colour including red, good temperament and presentation.
2 TAYLOR’S MAHEREROE KANDASSIE 24b M 29/11/07
chocolate point young male with quite nicely balanced head and large flared and wide based ears, lovely deep blue oriental eyes and good strength of profile, I would have liked a little more depth of chin but his bite is level and full darkish chocolate mask although there is warmth to the colour. Long slender body and he is a lovely size but needs to develop a little more muscle as yet, basically clear ivory coat just a little light shading to lower back. Slender legs and neat paws with slightly paler chocolate stockings and good length of whip tail well matched for colour, good natured boy nicely presented.
3 BUDDEN’S ELEKTRA AMBER ROSE 32b3 F 9/1/08
nice young chocolate tortie point queen of good overall size, well balanced head with large wide based ears set at a lovely angle. Bright clear blue oriental eyes quite expressive and straight profile with good depth of chin and level bite and full mask of warm chocolate intermingled with red and cream, and she has red on her ears too. Slender long body with lovely short close lying ivory coat that is completely clear and of soft smooth texture, long legs and neat oval paws with god breaks of chocolate and red on her stockings and nice length of whippy tail to balance, lovely presentation.
AC SIAMESE/BALINESE SENIOR ADULT
1 MORT-WILLIAMS IGR CH CHAIROSS DEMETRIUS 24b M 22/4/03
big handsome mature chocolate point boy with lovely strong masculine head and large wide based ears of good set and broad top line. Wonderful deep blue oriental eyes and strong profile with firm chin and level bite with full slightly dark chocolate mask but there is a nice degree of warmth to the colour matched to his ears. Firm muscular long body with short close lying clear ivory coat that is fractionally harsh in texture along his spine but he is a working boy. He stands quite tall on slender legs with proportionate neat paws with well matched chocolate stockings and good length of tail that is slightly thick but in keeping with his size and masculinity, lovely even temperament.
2 STOKES CH LITTLEFEAT TATTOO HEART 32b1 26/11/05
rather anxious seal tortie point queen who was not the easiest to handle but she had quite a good head with large well placed and wide based ears, wonderful deep blue oriental eyes with a rather wicked expression, straight profile good chin and level bite and full tortie mask with good breaks of seal and cream but ideally I would have liked to see more red. Slender body of good length and close lying coat that is quite shaded and perhaps a fraction long but lovely condition. Slender legs with neat oval paws with well matched tortie stockings and long whippy tail, there are good breaks of colour on all points but again I would have liked to see more red.
3 STEPHENSON’S CH MAGICAL BECKSTAR BALOO 24 M 28/3/07
young seal point boy of good overall type with balanced head and large wide based ears well set, really deep blue oriental eyes and straight profile with good chin and level bite, full seal mask but rather more black than seal brown. Long slender body and for a boy he rather lacks muscle tone and substance, short close lying coat that is really heavily shaded to the point that there is almost no contrast at all. Slender long legs with neat oval paws and long whippy tail all with the same dark seal colour with minimal contrast, the overall impression was of almost a totally black cat, however he was good natured and nicely presented.
AV ADULT NOT WON A CC
1 MORGAN’S ASTRALBLAESE APHRODITE 24n F 22/3/08
delightful young lady with beautifully balanced head and large wide based ears set at just the right angle.

Graceful slender neck lines and long body of good size and condition with clear magnolia coat short and close lying, slender legs with neat oval paws with slightly paler caramel stockings that are well matched and lovely length of whip like tail.

2 WILLS KASSALIC FORBIDDEN SECRET 29 F 25/6/08
3 DICKINSON’S ALFACENTORY MYSTERS COOLDUDE 32a M 19/4/08
young red point boy who is very adolescent at the moment, quite a nice head but slightly out of balance just now, large well placed wide based ears and almost straight profile with quite nice depth of chin and level bite, rather pale blue oriental eyes and basically complete red mask. However, I felt that his head needs time to catch up with his long body of really good size with short close coat in excellent condition although there is quite a lot of shading along his back. Slender long legs with oval paws that match his size with slightly paler red stockings and long whip like tail, when everything catches up he should be a lovely big boy, excellent temperament and presentation.

good sized girl for her age with moderate even wedge and large ears that she was inclined to hold quite high.
