Tabby Point Siamese and Progressive Breeders Cat Club 25th September Mrs C Falconer
I would like to thank Harry and Joan and the committee for inviting me to judge and congratulate them on a well organised and delightful show. Although small, the show has always demonstrated the real interest and enthusiasm of the exhibitors for their cats and the breed. Judging household pets is not easy and I was very grateful that my steward Pat Cherry took her white coat out of retirement to help me with some difficult decisions. I enjoyed our day Pat and look forward to the next time.
