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.
Blue/Lilac/Fawn Tortie & White Adult
1 c.c. – Whiteley’s Admirrari Trilogy (22a)
Very attractive girl with a lovely ‘open’ expression. Well rounded headshape and balanced cheeks. Neat well set ears, excellent large round eyes of orange colour. Cobby body standing on short thickset legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion with rounded tip. Excellent patching blue and cream. Coat short and dense.
2nd – Cox’s Pennypurr Bella (22a)
Lovely large girl with a good round head, ears a little large and flared at base for balance. Round eyes of orange colour, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. 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
1st & Bob – Booth’s Purrade Aboy Named Goo (31f)
Well grown young man with a nicely rounded headshape. Ears a little large at present. Round eyes of deep gold developing showing a slight green rim at present. Short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Heavy cobby body for his age with chunky legs and rounded paws. Excellent tail for length, very thick at base with a rounded tip.,sporting some ghost rings at the moment. Attractive patches of cream with a clear white collar.

Attractive placid girl with an attractive facial expression. Excellent green eyes outlined with liner. She is a tad on the plump side, obviously likes her food. She has a very attractive coat of clear spotting and patches of vivid colour. Lovely girl.
AC Tabby Cat (Except red or tortie) with or without white
1 MC – Hollandt’s Special One
This stunning boy is very aptly name ‘special one’. He is so handsome. He has a very expressive facial expression with enormouse round eyes of outstanding green colour. A very large muscular long haired black silver tabby with a super coat and pattern. Very well prepared today and an outstanding example. Lovely tempermant. Well done.
