SOUTHERN BRITISH SHORTHAIR CAT CLUB - 9th CH SHOW
03rd March 2012
My thanks to Shelagh and her hard working team for my invite. Also grateful thanks to my friend Shaun Knight who very kindly came to steward for me. We had some super cats and kittens. It was lovely to see such a high standard of beautiful british shorthaired cats and kittens at this show.

AC British or Manx Champion Male
A class of 4 super boys.
1 Gr Ch – Marsland-Round’s Ch Catbalu Chianti Classico (20b)
Amazing boy of great stature. He is of excellent ‘type’. Very large rounded head with neat ears and chubby cheeks. Large round eyes of deep gold, very short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Massive compact heavy body with sturdy thick ‘queen ann’ legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length, thick at base with a rounded tip. His pattern is of good chocolate colour albeit it rather brindled, but I forgave him this, as his contrast is a warm toned bronze, his coat is short and dense and his temperament is fantastic. He is just a super example for his age of 5 years.
Reserve Gr Ch – Ruse’s Ch Steelaway Shadrak (75)
Another super boy, with a well rounded head shape, well set ears, balanced cheeks, excellent clearly defined eyes of deep green. Short broad nose, level bite, chin could be a tad firmer for perfection. He has good conformation, with a body of good depth standing on short thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion with a rounded tip, showing some ghost rings. Clear even black tipping on an excellent ground colour of apricot. Coat short and dense.
AC British or Manx Champion Female
1 Gr Ch – Holloway’s Ch Rayanshel Total Eclipse (15)
Pretty well balanced young lady with a good rounded head, neat ears, balanced cheeks, well set ears, round eyes of orange colour, short broad nose, level bite and a firm chin. Good cobby body with short thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length with a rounded tip. Coat of good black, sound to roots, short, dense, just a tad soft in texture.
Black Silver Spotted Adult – Male
1 c.c. – Mounsey’s Khancoban Ziggy Stardust
Handsome boy who is maturing well. He has a nicely rounded head, ears a tad large at present, balanced cheeks, excellent round eyes of green colour. Short broad nose, level bite, chin could be firmer for balance. Body of good weight for his age of nearly a year old. Matching legs and paws. Tail of correct length, sporting clear rings, he has a little nervous tension at the tip of his tail but I felt this was acceptable today. He has good clear spots on his flanks, his spotting along his spineline needs to clear as the spots are visible but need to be more clearly defined. Excellent pale silver contrast. Coat short and fairly dense.
Black Silver Spotted Adult – Female
1 c.c. – Coulthurst’s Essylt Silver Pasquale
Young lady with a good round head for her age of 11 months. Ears well set but rather ‘open’ at base. Round eyes of green colour, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. I would have liked her facial contrast to be of a paler silver as she is quite dark in colour. Compact girl of good weight, showing spotting on her flanks and spine, but linkage showing on both shoulders. Tail in proportion showing clear rings. Ground colour of pewter, Excellent coat for length, density and crisp to touch.
AOC Silver Spotted Adult
1 c.c. – Leighton’s Porteous Silver Bonbon
Pretty young girl with a lovely ‘open’ expression. Good width between ears that are a little large at present for balance. Round eyes of deep gold, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Good weight to body, matching legs and paws. Tail of correct length sporting clear chocolate rings. Clear chocolate spots on her flanks and spine, some linkage on shoulders and hind quarters on Pale silver contrast on a short coat.

Heavy balanced body with matching thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length, thick at base with a rounded tip. Her patching could be more clearly defined for perfection and her blue patching is a little dark in colour. Coat fairly short and dense.
3rd – Marsland-Round’s Catbalu Everyroseasitsfawn (22r)
Pretty little girl but not happy today. Very small for her age. Unbalanced head as her ears are very large at present, hopefully she will grow into them. Large round eyes of deep gold. Short nose of medium length, level bite and firm chin. Body very light in weight. Tail of correct length. Good clear patches of warm mushroom colour and cream. Coat short.

Bi-Coloured Kitten

Many thanks to Joyce & Vic for inviting me to this lovely friendly show. Grateful thanks also to my friend Karen Holloway who very kindly ‘steered’ me through the day. We had some super cats and kittens.

Black Adult – Male
1 c.c. – Booth’s Rayanshel Ace of Spades
Large mature boy for his age with a good round head shape, good width between well set ears, just a little flared at base. Nicely rounded cheeks, round eyes of deep gold colour, short broad nose, level bite, chin just a little shallow for balance. Heavy body which is well proportioned, standing on thick set legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length. His coat is jet black, short in length, just a little unsound in places today, but a very promising young man.
2nd – Hollandt’s Pridykats Tinie Tempar
Another well grown boy for his age, with a well rounded head, wellset ears just a little flared at base, well balanced cheeks, large round eyes of deep gold. Short broad nose showing a slight ‘break’. Bite untidy, with a firm chin. Good weight to his body which stands on short thick set legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion with a rounded tip.

Well rounded cheeks, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Good heavy body with short legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length with rounded tip.

My thanks to Shelagh and the committee of this fabulous ‘specialist’ club for once again, doing such a fantastic job. The show was lovely. I had lots of comments on how friendly everyone was.

Pretty little girl with a super head shape, large expressive round eyes with green/hazel colour. Short broad brick coloured nose, level bite and firm chin.

SHROPSHIRE CAT CLUB SHOW
05th February 2011
Many thanks to Janet, Jill and the hard working team. I had a lovely day in the company of Karen Holloway who came specially to steward for me. The quality of the exhibits was superb. We had some really super british kittens.

Lilac Adult – Male
c.c. withheld – Jarrold’s Kinderpaws Gregory
Young man who was just an adult. Well rounded head shape with good width between well set ears just a tad flared at base. Round eyes of deep gold, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Heavy body with short sturdy legs with rounded paws. Tail of medium length, thick at base with a rounded tip. Coat a tad long, dense in texture but very unsound. His lilac colouring was very dark in colour and not a frost grey colour with a pinkish hue. Very sorry to withhold but due to his colour and the unsoundness of his coat.

Lilac Adult – Female
1.c.c. & bob – Hutchinson’s Purrisimo Sealedwitha Kiss
Very pretty little girl of excellent type. Super round head, good width between tiny ears, lovely round eyes of deep gold, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Body of good weight and depth, standing on short legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion, thick at base with a rounded tip. Coat of good lilac colour, a tad long, but dense, just a little unsound.

Cream Adult – Female
1.c.c. & bob – Kingwell’s Apatchicat Butterkissed
Sweet girl with a good round head shape, ears well set but flared at base. Round eyes of orange colour, balanced cheeks, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Good weight with a cobby body on short sturdy legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length with rounded tip. Excellent pale cream coat which was very short and dense, just showing faint ghost markings.

Black Silver Tabby Adult – Male
1 c.c. Thompson’s Darkcrystal Silver-Solo
Well grown boy for his age. Fair head shape which lacks width between ears which are rather large at the moment. Round eyes of excellent green colour. ‘Brick’ coloured nose of medium length. Level bite, but chin a little on the weak side. Clear liner on face and he has a jet black pattern on a lovely pale silver contrast. Good clear butterfly, spine lines and tail rings. Oysters match but are muddly in the centres. Coat short but rather flay lying along the spine. This boy needs to mature. He won his c.c. on his excellent pattern today.
Black Silver Tabby – Female
1.c.c. – Countrystyle Silver Q-T
Very pretty girl of lovely type. Neat round head with well set ears, just a tad flared at base. Round eyes with a clear green developing from the centres. Short broad ‘brick’ coloured nose, level bite and firm chin. Excellent weight for her size and age. Chunky legs and large round paws. Tail of correct length sporting clear rings. Clear black pattern on a pale silver contrast. I could only fault her on the fact that her oysters were muddly in the centres. Coat short and dense. Very promising young lady.
BOB – Bujalska-Axon’s Ch Sargenta Silver Yoella – Super girl of excellent type.
Bi-Coloured Adult – Male
1.c.c. Parrish’s Pardilloe Beau Jangles (31a)
Super boy of excellent type. True round british head shape, with good width between well set ears. Well rounded cheeks, large expressive eyes of deepest orange. Lovely short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Very compact heavy body with matching legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion with rounded tip. I felt that he only just had enough white compared to his blue, which was mainly on his legs and tummy. He had attractive markings on his chest and front legs, being that he had one blue leg and one white leg. Excellent coat for length, density and sound to roots. I would have loved to have given him ‘best of breed’ but would have like more white patching on his upper body.
Bi-Coloured Adult – Female
1 cc. & bob – Martin’s Wellmar Goodnessgraciousme (31b)
Well grown young lady for just over 9 months of age. Pretty facial expression with a white blaze and a chocolate chin. Neat round head, ears well set but a tad large at present.

11th December 2010
Thank you to Carol and her hard working team for my invite. I had a very enjoyable day in the company of my friend Shaun Knight who handled the cats and kittens with expertise and care.

AC British Champion Adult – Male
Gr Ch – Marsland-Round’s Ch Catbalu Chianti Classico (20b)
Lovely large mature boy with a true british head shape, good width between well set ears, balanced cheeks, large round eyes of excellent orange colour, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Heavy muscular body standing on short thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion showing rings. His pattern has some brindling and I would have liked it richer in colour but he has a super warm toned contrast on a short dense coat and a lovely temperament.
Reserve – Coulthurst’s Ch. Satinmist Supurr Samson (20)
Another well matured boy with a good round balanced head with good width between well set ears. Balanced cheeks, large round eyes showing some green colour in centres. Short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Heavy muscular body with matching legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion showing rings but solid in colour along the ridge. He has a clear jet black tabby pattern with just some brindling between his spine lines. Unfortunately today his ground colour let him down as it was very cold, lacking the rich copper contrast he should have. Lovely short dense coat.

AC British Champion Adult – Female
Gr Ch – Brown’s Ch. Kolinga Mui Mui (16)
Super girl of excellent type and size with a well balanced head, well set ears but flared at base. Well balanced cheeks, round eyes of excellent orange colour, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Heavy body standing on thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length, thick at base with a rounded tip. Coat of medium blue colour, very soft in texture but short and sound to roots. Lovely temperament.
Reserve – Bradley’s Ch. Catbalu Arietty (21b)
Very pretty girl with a lovely balanced headshape. Neat ears, nicely rounded cheeks, well rounded eyes of deep gold, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. She has lovely mingling of red and black on a short dense coat. Well balanced body with good legs and rounded paws. Tail a tad short for balance. Rather wriggly today but a lovely example of a chocolate tortie.
Black Silver Tabby Kitten – Male
1st – William’s Crowvalley Jumpnjive (18)
Well grown young man for his age. His head shape needs to develop and he is a little narrow on the muzzle at present but he is only 7 months old. Ears rather large for balance with a nose of medium length showing some fawning. Excellent green eyes but his eyeshape is a little ‘oriental’ looking. Body of good weight for his age with strong legs and rounded spotted paws. He is going through that rangy stage at the moment. Jet black pattern with clear spine lines, matching oysters with some brindling in the centres, Clear butterfly and lovely clear necklaces and bracelets. Tail in proportion. He has a good clear silver contrast on a coat which is short and dense.

Black Silver Tabby Kitten – Female
1st & BOB – Nicholson’s Metallicat Silver Eclipse (18)
Pretty girl with a well rounded head with good width between ears which are flared at base. Neat balanced cheeks, expressive round eyes which need to be watched, as the colour is a little ‘strong’ but showing green in the centres. Short broad brick coloured nose leather, level bite and firm chin. Excellent weight to body with short thickset legs and rounded spotted paws. Tail of medium length, thick at base with a rounded tip showing clear rings. Excellent jet black tabby pattern on a pale silver contrast. Super short dense coat.
2nd – Willliam’s Crowvally Lindy Lop (18)
Sweet little girl with a fairly good head shape, ears a tad large for balance at present. Little cheeks, round expressive eyes with green in centres, short broad black nose leather, level bite and firm chin. Body of good weight for her age. Tail in proportion showing clear rings. Fairly dense pattern, with a clear butterfly, spine lines a little brindled, oyster match but with brindling in the centres. Excellent silver contrast. I would like her coat which lies a little flat, denser in texture.
3rd – Bruce’s Countrystyle Quick Silver (18)
Smallest girl in the class with a good head shape developing, just a little narrow around the muzzle area. Ears a little large for balance. Excellent round eyes of green colour. Short broad brick nose leather, level bite and firm chin. Body of medium weight with matching legs and rounded spotted paws. Tail of correct length sporting clear rings. Good jet black spinelines with some brindling between them. Clear butterfly showing. Oysters match but are not complete. Excellent silver contrast but her coat lets her down, as it is very flat lying with no density.

Blue Cream, Lilac or Fawn Tortie Kitten
1st & BOB – Finch’s Typically Chinese Whispers (28)
Stunning little girl of excellent type with a lovely ‘open’ face. Neat tiny ears, little cheeks, round eyes of excellent orange colour. Level bite, short broad nose, firm chin with a lovely broad muzzle. Cobby ‘4 square’ body of good depth standing on the shortest thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion, thick at base with a rounded tip. She has very attractive patches of pale cream and pale blue. Her coat is crisp to touch, short and very dense but at this moment in time, her blue patching is very silvered. Hopefully she will grow out of this, as she is one to watch.
2nd – Noverraz’s Bluepawz Frosted Clover (21c)
Another pretty little kitten with a well rounded head, ears just a little flared at base. Round eyes of deep gold showing a green eye rim today, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Rather lightweight for her age, with short little legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion. Good clear spotting on correct ground colour. Coat short but I would like it dense. Not a very happy girl today.

White (Blue-eyed or Odd-eyed) Neuter
1 P.C. & BOB – Cox’s Willowood Dumbledore (14b)
Lovely to see an odd-eyed white boy. Good round head, although his ears are a tad large for balance. Well rounded eyes, one of deep gold colour and the other eye of pale blue. Short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Body of good weight for his age of just over 18 months. Good thick legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length, thick at base with a rounded tip. He has a clear white body colour with just a small amount of ‘stud tail’ showing at the base of his tail and his chin could have been whiter for perfection. Coat short and dense.

White (Orange-eyed) Neuter
1 P.C. & BOB – Hayward-Cox’s Willowood Gandalf (14a)
Litter brother to the young man above. Well grown boy for his age with a well rounded head, balanced cheeks, ears a tad large for balance. Round eyes of excellent orange colour. Short broad nose, level bite, firm chin which is a little grubby. Large lad with good conformation, standing on short thick legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion, thick at base with a rounded tip, showing some ‘stud tail’. Excellent clear white coat, short and very dense.

Black Silver Spotted Neuter
BOB – Harris’ Gr Pr Advish Essyltaloysuis (30s)

Red Self Neuter – Intermediate
1 IC & BOB – Harrison’s Diwali Georgie (15d)
What a delightful ‘old boy’. I can’t call him a ‘young man’ as he is nearly 12 years of age. Super temperament. He has a lovely round head shape, little cheeks, tiny ears and excellent eyes of deepest orange. Alas, no teeth, but level gums, short broad nose, and firm chin. Heavy stocky boy with thickset legs and huge round paws. Tail of correct length. Coat of rich red, short in length, could be denser in texture and sound to roots.

Many thanks also to Janet and Jill and their hard working committee.

Black Adult (Female)

C.C. withheld – Titler’s Sewnsew Dora the Explorer
Young girl with a lovely temperament. She has a fairly well rounded headshape with well set ears. Little cheeks, eye colour rather muddy at present, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. She is a good size for 9 months of age, but lacks maturity for her C.C. Coat of good black colour, but she was unsound and moulting. Sorry to withheld, but she needs time to mature.

Bob – Wild’s Ch Bluerain Black Sambuca

White Orange Eyed Adult (Female)

C.C. withheld – Brown’s Ch Charmoden Simplyolly

Lovely girl but unfortunately she was very unhappy today and didn’t want to be handled.

Blue Adult (Male)

1 C.C. – Young’s Petticote Assasin.
Handsome boy of 19 months of age with a lovely ‘open’ expression. Good round head with well set ears, chubby cheeks, excellent round eyes of orange colour. Short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Heavy cobby body with short thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion, thick at base with a rounded tip. Coat of medium blue colour, short, dense and amazingly crisp, which is very rare to find in a british cat.

Well matured boy of nearly 2.5 years. Lovely round head with good width between his ears. Good round eyes or orange colour. Balanced cheeks, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Good weight to body, good thick les and tail of correction length, thick at base with a rounded tip. Super mid-blue coat which is very dense and sound to roots. Rather nervous today.

Lovely large boy with an excellent british head, good width between neat well set ears, round eyes of deep gold, balanced cheeks, short broad nose, level bit and firm chin. Heavy muscular body with good strong legs and paws. Tail in proportion, rather skinny with a pointed tip.

Good round eyes of orange colour, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Heavy cobby body standing on thick short legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion. Coat of mid-blue, it could be shorter in length for perfection, but it is sound to roots. Just some silver tipping evident.

2nd – Howard’s Adatesh Kingstandin Blue
A vey pretty young lady with a true ‘applehead’, neat ears, enormous round eyes of such deep orange, fantastic. Short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Body of medium weight. I would like her a little larger and heavier for her age of l7 months. Coat of medium blue, short but a little unsound today and showing a little scurf, perhaps she has been ‘over groomed’. Very promising young lady.

3rd – Howard’s Bodiddley All-that-Jazz
Mature girl of good size. Her head is a tad small in comparison to her body. Good width between ears that are wide at base. Good round eyes of deep gold, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Coat a tad long, unsound today and some silver tipping evident but very dense and crisp to touch,

4th – Wood’s Boddidley The Temptress
Girl of fair size. She has a fairly rounded headshape, at the moment she lacks cheeks which tends to unbalance her head. Round eyes of deep gold, bordering on orange colour. Short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Body of medium weight for her age of 15 months. Coat of dark blue, lacks density and unsound. Not a happy girl today.

5th – Tibbitts Lynnaes Sarad Shakirra

Sweet girl who is rather small for her age of 18th months. Small head which lacks cheeks, pointed muzzle, well set ears with good width between. Eyes of gold colour, short broad note, level bite and firm chin. Body on the small size. Coat of mid blue, heavily silvered and unsound. I really hope that this girl is not going to be bred from, as from my point of view, she is purely a pet.
