Imperial Grand Master Class Non Pedigree Pet Male
Imp GR MC to Mr J E Emery & Mrs J D Emery’s GMC Pumpkin, MN SH Ginger Tabby & White 1yr 8 mths. The first thing that struck me was the lovely size of this boy for such a young age! Very handsome rich Ginger Tabby with sparkling white. Super Presentation with a cracking personality, just loved a good cuddle and a play. He has lovely lemon coloured eyes that draw you in.
Res IMP GR MC to Master J Aldridge-Snell’s GMC Chester, MN SH Black & White 5 years. Another handsome chap. Jet black with sparkling white again very well presented. Lovely pale green eyes, pink paw pads and a very cute black nose. Sadly he was a lot happier in his pen than out but he was in no way difficult.
Imperial Grand Master Class Non Pedigree Pet Female
Imp GR MC to Mrs C A Tolhurst’s IGMC Heidi, FN SH Tortie Tabby & White 7 years. Such a pretty feminine lady. She is a big girl and obviously likes her food! Lovely pattern, rich red intermingling and super clean white to her coat. Gorgeous Green eyes. A very gentle girl that loved a cuddle, she really is in her prime.
Res IMP GR MC to Mr A T & Miss R M Kitson’s GMC Smartie, FN SH Tri-Colour 6 years. This lovely lady is not a Tri-Colour but is a Tortie and White and I did have an opportunity to speak to her owner on this subject. Another lady with good grooming however her eyes were a little dirty but her white was sparkling. Lovely red and black coat. A very confident lady and I loved her typically grumpy Tortie expression.
Grand Class AC Pedigree Pet Male
A wonderful class of 5 boys who were all lovely and all deserving of the certificate. Thank you for the entry.
GR MC to Mrs C Stanton’s MC Hit The Jackpot, MN, SLH Bi Colour 13 months. WOW!!! What a huge boy for his age. Wonderful temperament and so well presented. His coat felt just like silk, beautiful sparkling white, it is so wonderful to see a cat this well groomed. He has wonderful china blue eyes and very heavily tufted feet, he just padded the whole time we had him out. He is a real cracker!!
Res GR MC to Ms M Haas MC Levi, MN SH Seal Point 1 year 10 mths. Another really big chap, very well padded! Wonderful blue eyes that really draw you in, so expressive. Again wonderful presentation, his coat felt like satin. I loved his little neat feet and wonderful temperament. A really had to nit pick between these two.
Grand Class AC Pedigree Pet Female
Another super class of 3 lovely ladies.
GR MC to Miss R A Summerley’s MC Itzy Bitz, FN SLH Seal Tortie Bi Colour 1 year 9 mths. This girl is such a pretty girly cat! I just loved her facial markings and freckles. Beautiful grooming, her coat felt super. I loved her coat colour, her chocolate coloured feet and deep blue eyes.

He is a huge chap with a lovely stripy body, lovely gooseberry green eyes and I loved his stripy legs, looked like he was wearing socks. This boy really loved a cuddle.
2nd to Mrs J Smith’s Alan, SH Tabby & White, MN 1 year. Lovely young lad that was unlucky to come up against Tico today. A super pattern to his body and wonderful grooming to his white areas.

LH/SLH Self Cat Pedigree Pet
BIC to Miss T Simmonds & Mr B Hall’s MC Charlie. MN 2 years. A lovely boy but was a little grumbly but not difficult. Grooming was good but could have benefited from just a little more attention to detail. Gorgeous Blue eyes and I loved his white nose blaze. A nice lad.

BIC to Mrs E Scott’s GMC Twizzle, MN SLH Blue Pointed, 7 years. This boy just had the most amazing temperament, such a complete tart! Another well groomed chap showing super condition for his age. He really was a soppy boy who would have stayed out on the trolley all day!!
Royal Canin Western Challenge Black, White or Black and White Non Pedigree Pet
1st Mrs L Talboy’s MC Gobbolino, MN SLH Black 1 year 3 mths. I just adore this cat!! He has a super temperament and is always presented beautifully. His coat is such a dense black, wonderful emerald green eyes and the thing I can never get over is that all his whiskers are black, not one white one anywhere. It was my great pleasure to make him BIS Non Pedigree Pet later in the day.
