SURREY SUSSEX CAT ASSOCIATION SHOW REPORT

19th March 2011
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. Excellent coat which is short and dense, but today it seemed to have a rusty ‘hue’ to it.
B.O.B. – Stubb’s Gr Ch Positively Zambezi

Black Adult – Female
1 c.c. – Holloway’s Rayanshel Total Eclipse
Very pretty girl with a lovely round head, good width between neat ears, nicely rounded cheeks, round eyes of deep gold, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Cobby body of good depth standing on short thick legs and rounded paws. Tail thick at base with a rounded tip. Coat of good black colour, short, dense, just a tad soft in texture.

Blue Adult – Male
c.c. withheld – Wells’s Vinery Westenbach Wilbert
Well grown boy with a good rounded head shape, good width between ears which hare flared at base. Large round eyes of rather pale colour in the light of the hall. 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. He has a short dense coat, but today his coat was unsound to roots and he has very heavy silver tipping. Hence, the reason for withholding his c.c.

Blue Adult – Female
1 c.c. & bob – Holloway’s Rayanshel Ooh Lala
Pretty girl with a nicely rounded head shape. Well set ears but flared at base. Little balanced cheeks, large expressive eyes of orange colour, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin, Body of good depth with good stocky legs and rounded paws. Tail in proportion just showing some ghost rings and slightly narrow at the tip. Lovely coat of medium blue colour, short and dense, with just slight silver tipping evident.
2nd – Burford’s Karowbist Yum Yum
Sweet little girl who lacks maturity. Fair shaped head, no width between ears that are very large at present for balance. Round eyes of pale colour in the light of the show hall. Nose of medium length, level bite, but chin rather shallow. Body of good weight with matching legs and paws. Tail in proportion. Coat of good blue colour, short and dense.

Black Kitten
1st & bob – Crowther’s Rapley Black Iris
Pretty girl of excellent type for her age. A real ‘applehead’, well set ears, little cheeks, large round eyes of deep gold, short broad nose, level bite and firm chin. Good weight to body with thick set legs and rounded paws. Tail of correct length with a rounded tip. Lovely jet black glossy coat which could be a tad shorter in length for perfection, but sound to roots and dense in texture. Promising young lady.
