Red Point Siamese Kitten
( What a surprise Three Red ladies )
1st BOB Fairclough’s Zarafa Alloween 32a 02.08.09
Quite Stylish young miss of very good overall type. Medium wedge with good top and large ears that she could hold a smidge high- when relaxed these were very well set. Slight dip to profile with firm chin and level bite. Oriental eyes of good shape and set with a good blue. Bright red points fairly well developed in a reddish gold well matched. Long well developed and muscular body with fine limbs and super whip tail to balance, lovely coat of good texture and clear bright white.
2nd Webster’s Spicesiam Anise Star 32a 17.06.09
Older girl but similar in size to the winner, Pretty girl with lovely expression and sweet temperament. Medium wedge with large well set ears. Almost straight profile with level bite and chin could be deeper. Muscular body that was long and elegant with long limbs and whip tail that requires an inch for perfect balance. Oriental eyes of super shape and set that ideally could be a shade deeper for the standard. Paler red points developing that were well matched, she is probably seal based. Presented in super condition with good coat for texture just a bit long.
3rd Miller’s Pashtan Lifthrasir 32a 20.05.09
the oldest lady in the class and well grown with lovely bright red points with super definition and very well matched. Going through rather an awkward stage at the moment and looking a bit overlong and narrow. Longer wedge that needs more width on top. She has large ears that need a smidge more flare. Oriental eyes of good shape and colour just lacking in expression for me. Long body with long limbs and dainty paws and whip tail to balance. Slightly long coat of good texture a bit open when I judged her. Sweet temperament.
Tortie Point Kitten
1st BOB Jones Johpas Amy Daydream 32B1 30.09.09
What can I say – super stylish baby of gorgeous type and a lovely attitude . Shorter Strong wedge set well with large flyaway butterfly ears with super width at base. Gorgeous roman profile with developing kitten bite and chin that needs a bit more strength. Oriental eyes of good blue and lovely setting and shape so expressive. Long muscular little body well developed for age. Points of a dark seal fairly well broken with varying shades of paler reds at the moment would like to see brighter reds. All points broken although she does have a slightly solid back foot but this does have breaks coming through. Whip tail to balance. Kitten coat clearing well of super texture. She is an absolute delight and I would imagine a madam at home as she definitely knows what she wants and how to get it! Needs to get some lessons on manners from her father!! I would have happily sneaked her home.
Cream Point Kitten
1st (BOB W/H) Cosgrove’s Zarafa Penelope Pitstop 32C 02.08.09
What a delightful friendly person this was she had a few little issues that precluded the award of the BOB today – Medium wedge with large ears that need a bit more width between them, slight dip to profile with firm chin and level bite. Her right ear had a scar that had healed and curled the outer edge that was noticeable and did detract a bit from the overall impression. Long muscular body with a rather long coat that was very open and would not lay flat and she rolled around and purred all the time. Slightly hot cream points which were very well developed for age and did show more warmth than i would prefer but as she was young and in the available light which was very yellow i gave the benefit of the doubt . Eyes of good shape set perhaps a bit straight of a good blue. Long whip to balance. A Pretty lady with a lovely personality.
AC Siamese / Balinese Novice Adult
1st Gould’s Mylynn Maisee B 11.04.09 32A
Stylish lady of super type with shorter balanced wedge set with large well flared ears and super eyes of lovely colour and expression no doubt helped by her foul mood!! She was of a super size with long elegant body and dainty limbs and spoon paws. Bright red point super definition to her bright white coat that was super texture. A lovely lady who needs to relax and enjoy shows.
2nd Bunyans Mylynn MeantoBee 11.04.09 32C
Another stylish lady of very good overall type with longer wedge showing a slight pinch. Almost straight profile with firm chin and level bite. Large well set ears showing good flare. Oriental eyes of lovely shape and setting and of a good blue. Long slender body of good weight with lovely coat texture just a smidge long down her back. Long limbs and dainty paws. Palest cream points beautifully cool and subtle in fact the best i have seen for some time! Sweet lady a bit shy but lovely nonetheless.
3rd Richard’s Debikat Mayzi Fantazee 24N 28.02.09
Attractive lady of balance type, slightly straight set eyes and a medium wedge looking a bit pinched today. These were of a good colour. Almost straight profile with firm chin and bite just level. Skull ideally needs more depth for overall look and impression. Long muscular body with long limbs and dainty paws. Sweet temperament
AC Siamese or Balinese Adolescent Adult
1st Bunyan’s Mafdet Blue Moon 24N 22.04.09
What a Handsome boy with a very nice expression, he is as yet only a baby and needs to butch up, he does have time on his side. Very good overall type with medium wedge set with large flared ears that ideally I would prefer to see a bit larger. Almost straight profile with firm chin and level bite. Gorgeous eyes for shape colour and setting with inscrutable expression. Very long body just needing to have the hard muscular feel of an entire male. Long whip tail to balance with slender limbs and dainty paws. Dark blue based caramel points that were fairly evenly matched that I would like to see develop more brown tones as yet they appeared more indigo blue , there were some taupe tones on the base of his ears and his shading to the body was a warmish toffee colour which is reflective of his colour. A promising boy whom i would be interested to see in a few months. Superb temperament and condition.
2nd Richard’s Debikat Mayzi Fantazee 24N 28.02.09
3rd Esterford Howards Shermese Shenanigans 32/1 10.03.09
This young man did himself absolutely no favour as he was so shy he was almost rigid with fear. He displays stylish type with a longer wedge with large well set ears with good width at base, almost straight profile with firmish chin and level bite. Super long muscular body very heavy and masculine. Short coat of good texture and lightly shaded in tone. Seal Tabby points well traced in a slightly cool dark brown, M and thumb prints and leg bars fairly clear and well ringed whip tail to balance. An attractive boy needing far more self belief to do him more justice.

1st Cockrell’s Adsetam Oneforso 32B1 09.07.07
Mature balanced lady of good overall type, Medium wedge with large well set ears ideally needing a bit more flare. Almost straight profile with firm chin and level bite. Slight blunt muzzle Oriental eyes of good shape and set needing a shade more depth to the colour. Dark seal tortie points with lots of mingling in varying shades of red. Fairly heavily shaded body with super coat for texture just a shade long. Whip tail to balance.
2nd Pinningtons Spindiamond Songsungblue 61p 22.08.06
Another balanced lady of good type with shorter broader wedge with large ears that need more width at base. Slight dip to profile with firm chin and level bite. Rather full eyes of good colour and expression. Shorter muscular body with long limbs and tail that needs an inch for better balance. Super coat for texture and colour almost unshaded . Well furnished tail with good fringing along her torso and super tufted paws. Ideally the coat could be longer but it is acceptable. It is of super texture and well presented. Lilac based caramel tortie points well mingled with varying shades of apricot An attractive girl with a lovely temperament just beaten today on overall style.
AC Siamese / Balinese Radius Neuter
1st Mason’s Pr Rozanden Ruaidhri 32a 06.06.08 MN
Huge Handsome body of very good overall type , longer wedge set with large ears than need more space at top. Lovely straight profile with firm chin and level bite. Super long well muscled body well developed with long limbs and long whip tail to balance. Lovely rich bright red points all well developed and matched with super clarity. Oriental eyes of good blue and superior expression. This boy just really needs more width at the top of his head. Lovely nature and presentation.
2nd Barnes Abicasa Cyberspirit 24N 16.12.08 MN
Younger boy of again good type and style but he would insist on bonneting his ears and it was this that made my mind up in the placing. Medium wedge with large ears that he held forward and flat when out of pen, when he relaxed they were still a trifle bonneted. Almost straight profile with firm chin and level bite. Lilac based caramel points that were developing well and well matched showing some sludgy tones. Ideally these need to develop more. Huge long well muscled body with super long tail and elegant limbs. Excellent coat texture and condition, just a bit reticent when out if his pen otherwise a handsome boy.

Handsome Mature boy of very good overall type just losing out to the youngster today on style and expression.
