Lilac Point Kitten (FEMALE) 1 entry
1st Rolsen RoseRoyal Stamp (BOB W/H) 24c-Female– 24/09/08
Young lady who looked rather unbalanced today, shorter medium wedge head with rather a blunt muzzle (this could have been temper) as she has a tendency to throw her whisker pads forward and she was definitely not in the mood for very thorough examination. Large ears the she tended to hold high and ideally could have more flare and with between very slight dip in profile firm chin with scissor over bite (marginal) eyes of bright blue that she was holding wide but there again she had clearly gotten out of the wrong side of bed – I left her to calm down for a while and they were far more oriental in shape but she would squint at me it was intermittent and in the right eye mainly. Muscular, lithe body of good length with long elegant limbs and whip tail to balance. Her points were a dark lilac and not much evidence of a pinkish tone although they were fairly well matched, her coat was an excellent texture and was short and close lying. Overall a pretty girl who needs to curb her language, the BOB was withheld because of the squint and the Points colour.

Generally a very attractive young lady of very good overall type Medium length wedge head quite stylish with wide top and large well set ears, straight profile firm chin but sadly had a noticeably over shot bite, Her eyes looked rather pink rimmed but were of good colour and showed good oriental shape and setting , long elegant muscular body with protruding xphisternum today , long whip tail to balance with long elegant legs and dainty spoon paws short lightly shaded coat in tone of excellent length slightly dry to the touch, points of a dark seal tortie well mingled with varying shades of red with a particularly attractive facial blaze all points show breaks. A pretty young lady who looked a bit out of sorts today.

Huge lad of excellent type the first overall impression I got with this cat was that he was immaculately presented in superb condition for a stud boy and he had a wonderful composed temperament . Longer wedge head with wide top and I would prefer him to have slightly larger ears for balance (nit picking) Very slight dip and tiny bump on nose when viewed in profile basically level bite, eyes of good shape and set although I would like to see these deeper in colour long very muscular body with a very short close coat that fitted him like a glove long elegant legs with and fine paws lovely long whipped tail , all points well defined in a bright red could be richer at this stage overall a young man in superb condition with a wonderful temperament and impressive overall.

Young lady looking a bit kittenish at this stage at 12 months, ideally I would prefer to see her a bit larger. Shorter wedge head rather blunt at muzzle with good top and large tufted ears with good width at base straight profile and firm chin with level bite. Slightly full in the eye that gave an un oriental look and the colour for me needed to be deeper for the standard, long elegant body with good muscle tone and dainty limbs and spoon paws tail needs an Inch to balance well developed points of a good bright red all points well matched good texture coat slightly long but well prepared, a sweet girl needing to mature presented in lovely condition .

What a Lovely lady Stylish and with a true inscrutable Siamese expression not often seen. Face on very attractive with a medium wedge head with large wide set flared ears in profile there is a dip and bump on nose which spoils the overall look but nonetheless I liked her very much, firm chin and slightly messy but basically level bite, gorgeous eyes of deep blue with a look of pure contempt but she was such a sweet lady.

Slightly long coat which was marginally dry to the touch presented in super condition and a true lady well done .
