Show report for Cambridgeshire Cat Club show held 23/4/2011 - Judge Prue Kerr
A big thank you to Sally Tokens and her assistant Show Manager Paul Asquith, for inviting me to judge and for the Club’s hospitality. As I had a very heavy judging book, my notes on cats judged in the miscellaneous classes are of necessity short. I am extremely grateful to Patti Tegg for all her hard work as my steward on a hot and sticky day.
