Northern Ireland Cat club show
March 7th 2009
Show Report from Sharara CrichtonI was so pleased to be back in Northern Ireland again at this very happy show with its traditional Irish hospitality. My thanks to Pat Hartin and Denis Shortall for the invitation to judge at the last minute due to bumper show numbers and hope that exhibitors were not too disappointed with the judge changes in side classes. My grateful thanks to Val Prestidge for her excellent help and good company on the day. It was lovely to get to know her better and to spend some time together handling some very lovely cats and kittens.
AC Persian Self Breeders Adult
1 Lenihan’s COOMAKISTA OICHEGANREALTA black exotic male who was just over a year and a half who was cobby but a little small for an adult male although he may still be growing but I would have liked him to be larger in size. Head shape was broad with neat well set ears that were nicely rounded and placed far apart. The eyes were large and fully round but the eye colour could have been a deeper orange shade and was a little pale for a young male. A short snub nose had a strong stop and a black nose leather. The muzzle was filling out, the cheeks were well filled and he had a scissor bite and a firm chin. The body was solid with thick legs that were low set. The coat was a shiny black and was very sound in colour but not at its densest at this time of year and lacking the plushness that is characteristic of this breed. The tail was short and very thick and balanced the body size.

1 McKeever’s CHARLORIAN MANORS MANA blue male who was over two years of age who was very cobby oin shape. I would have liked him to be of larger build as he was rather small for an adult male. He had good head type with a broad top of head that had tiny well set ears with short ear feathers and that were sited far apart with well rounded tips. The eyes were lovely and were his best feature being large, fully round with a bold expression and deepest copper colour. The nose was short and had a strong nose break and a full blue nose leather. His chin was deep and balanced and the cheeks were full and the muzzle was broad with a scissor bite. The body was solid, of a good weight and set on short thick legs. His coat was like a powder puff being very full and with a dense undercoat but was not long and flowing and was of a rather dark shade of steel blue and sound in colour. Show preparation was very good and he had a gentle easy going nature.

2 Sattar’s SHEERBLISS SHERE KHANA classic red tabby exotic boy, only just an adult, who I have judged as a kitten and who is developing well. He is growing into a well built strong boy with good boning and sturdy short legs. However, he still looks very much like a kitten and is still immature but has time on his side. Well balanced shape of head which was broad with a smooth top, rounded forehead which had wide set ears of small size. Good fat cheeks and a well formed muzzle that was slightly paler in colour. Very short snub nose had a strong stop and fully formed pink nose leather.

The chin was deep and balanced and he had a scissor bite. His coat was soft and of medium length but was not very dense or plush at present possibly as it was lacking a little in undercoat but his tabby markings were excellent as he had all that should be seen in a tabby. The red markings were a very rich deep shade of red overlying a good red ground colour. He had an ‘M’ on his well rounded forehead, lighter spectacles around the eyes, pencilling on the cheeks, head lines, necklaces, thumb prints on the ears, deep red butterfly on the shoulders, spine lines and oysters on the flanks.

Good breadth of skull but not smooth rounded and having a definite head bump which was very unfortunate as she is a pretty girl. The ears were small, round tipped and set far apart on the head. Huge round eyes had eye colour that was orange but had a slight green rim and had clear surrounding spectacles. The nose was very short with a very strong nose break and a small pink nose leather that had good size nasal openings.

The upper part of the face was tabby showing blue markings on a cool beige agouti ground and overlaid with cream which was repeated over the whole of her back region but her lower face covering the chin and muzzle was pristine white with a white bib and underside. All four feet were white and had coloured tabby spots. The coat was thick and dense and felt plush and of correct texture for an exotic with a thick short tail. A very sweet girl who behaved well when handled but placed lower on account of her head bump and eye colour.

1 Leppard’s KLASSYKLOGS KATRIONAA seal birman girl who is just an adult and who I have judged several times before and find that she is living up to her early promise. She has lovely birman type having a medium size body which was firm and solid and well grown for a young adult with medium height legs that were well muscled and with short paws. She had a broad head that was well rounded with well set ears of medium size placed well apart on the skull. She had an excellent profile with a medium length nose that had a slight dip at the nasal bridge and with a full seal brown nose leather and a firm well tapering chin. The cheeks were full and rounded with wide cheek bone structure and she had a good level bite. Her eyes were glorious being almost round with the deepest blue colour possible and with the loveliest expression. Her coat was very soft, long and silky in texture with a good ruff and was of a clear pale shade of beige showing a slight hint of golden hue over her back. The tail was bushy and of medium length and in proportion to the body length. The mask was well developed on her face and matched the other seal points very well. All four feet were very clean and sparkling white with the gloves being slightly scalloped but of a very well matched, of correct length and almost reaching just up to the angle of the paw. The socks covered the entire paw but were not perfectly matched on the upper surface with the right hand one just slightly higher. The gauntlets were of equal length but differed in their widths with one tapering well to a point close to the hock and the other one just slightly wider and more blunt in shape. She was a little poppet when handled and was perfectly presented. A very lovely girl who is a good example of the breed and whose progress I shall follow with interest.

She had a firm body that was solid but a little on the small side at present and supported on firm well muscled legs with short paws. The coat was lovely and clear, of an ivory shade, and was very soft with a silky texture. The feet were pure white, very clean and sparkling.

1 Bell and Craig’s GR CH and INT CH VITA-NOVA’S DREAMERAn old favourite of mine, a very handsome chap black silver spotted exotic boy who is now approaching four years of age. He is a chunky solid heavy boy with a well muscled body supported on short thick legs with large fat paws and who had a short thick neck and well rounded rump. Very good head type which was large and very broad with small round tipped ears that had good ear set. The cheeks were full and chubby and he had a very short nose that was broad with a strong nose break and a small pinkish blue nose leather that had full open nostrils. He still has fabulous eye colour of deepest copper with large rounded eye shape with a lovely bold expression. The chin was strong and balanced the upper part of the face and he had a broad muzzle and fat whisker pads showing good tabby spots and he had a scissor bite. He was moulting heavily at the show and so his coat was not at its densest but it was soft and thick and had a pattern of dense black that contrasted well with the silver ground colour. Tabby markings were clear throughout on head and body. The head had clear lines running over the top and good pencilling on his cheeks. There were necklaces and barring on his limbs and he had a lovely well spotted pattern on the body and underside with three broken spine lines visible down his back. The tail was short and thick and had clear tabby rings and found later to have a very slight curve at the extreme tail tip when could only be felt in one direction possibly due to being stepped on as I have judged this handsome boy several times in the past and have never been felt it before.

1 McCarthy’s COOMASKISTA KOTA KINA BALOUA very cute classic blue tabby and white exotic kitten who looked very promising in his pen. When handled he had lots of rude language for us and when we returned him to his pens we noted that he was limping and could not stand on one of his legs and so we called the duty vet who confirmed he had a leg injury and hence he was removed from his other classes. He was just a little small for a kitten of six months of age but had a solid firm body with a cobby shape set low on the leg. He did not want to stand and kept lying down no doubt due to his injury. Strong shaped head that was rounded and verily broad with tiny well set ears. Lovely round eyes with good orange eye colour. A short snub nose had a very small pink nose leather with rather small nostrils that I would have liked larger and more open. The cheeks were fairly full and he had a white muzzle with a strong chin and a scissor bite. The head had a good ‘M’ on his forehead, pale spectacles around the eyes and good head and eye lines. The bib and underside of the body were white and he had four white socks on all feet. Theere was a very clear blue butterfly over the shoulders and two very strong and broad unbroken spine lines and a thin central one running down his back. The barring was good on his legs and he had a fully ringed short tail. Coat texture was good being dense and plush and standing out well from the body. I hope his injury was not serious as he is a very sweet kitten.

The eyes were large, fully round and had super deep copper colour and sweet expression. A short snub nose, fat cheeks and a broad muzzle. The chin was very strong and prominent and she had a scissor bite. There was a cream panel down the front of her face over the forehead, nose and chin with white on the left muzzle. Her bib and underside were white. The coat was mainly blue on her back and the blue patches on the coat were a dark shade and had many dark hairs visible which detracted from her appearance and she could have done with better show preparation. A good natured exhibit when handled.
