Yorkshire County Cat Club
24th October 2009

Mr H Meekings

Thanks to Lynda, Elaine and the show committee for the invitation to judge; unfortunately Rosie, who was due to steward for me, was unable to make it and missed out on the usual excellent lunch. The entry was full of quality; besides those reported on below, I have to mention Ashjolex Apollo, a very promising young caramel point neuter whom I came across in a club class.
Open Classes
Siamese/Balinese Imperial Grand Premier, Male
IGPC Thorpe’s GR PR JOHPAS DROPREDGORGEOUS  (32a)  19 Oct 07
An extremely handsome lad of excellent type, looking better than ever today. Long even wedge, good width at the top, well set large ears. Straight profile, firm chin and level bite. Eyes of very good set and slightly exaggerated shape, of a good depth of blue. Very long muscular body, long legs with neat paws, tail needs an extra inch to balance. Points undeniably a paler red than I would ideally like, but well within the bounds of acceptability – in fact, I think they looked better than I have seen them before. Unshaded warm toned body, coat a fraction long but of excellent texture. Excellent temperament and presentation. Best Siamese exhibit today I note, which he well deserved.
Res Copeland’s GR PR FLOWERDEW GTX PECTATIONS  (24)  2 Feb 08
A large lad of excellent type, whom I have not judged since he was just adult, and he’s certainly fulfilled the promise he had then. Long wedge, for me a little overlong in the muzzle, very good width at the top, well set large ears. Straight profile, firm if slightly shallow chin, level bite. Eyes of very good shape and set, of a bright blue which would ideally be a little deeper in tone. Very long muscular body, long legs with neat paws, balancing length of tail. Points a dense warm seal, body moderately shaded still giving good contrast, though there I would prefer slightly more warmth. Superb temperament, excellent presentation. Close coat of very good texture, BUT unfortunately he has been plucking himself in an elongated oval on the lower back, with the right side still very sparse, and fur having grown back on the left side but in a very dark colour, if not quite the black that might have been feared. I did seriously consider whether this precluded award of a certificate, and decided that it did not.
Unplaced GR PR EPITOME SUNDANCE  (32a)  MN  28 Oct 06
A large lad of good type. Longish even wedge, good width at the top, well set large ears. Profile straight apart from a bump on the nose, firm chin, bite scissored over. Eyes of very good shape and set and good depth of blue. Long well fed body, long legs with neat paws, tail needs an extra fraction to balance. Points of a good bright red, including on the legs, lightly shaded warm-toned body, close coat of excellent texture. Excellent temperament and presentation.

2 Saxon’s TIJANMEEK FERRARIMEDENA  (38fn)  1 Jun 09
An attractive baby of good type, colour changed from cream on the day but I think at present not clearly one thing or the other. Longish even wedge needing more width at the top, large ears held a little high. Straight profile, chin ebbs rather, bite level. Eyes of good basic shape though a little full, of a good clear green, she did turn the right one in at times. Good head markings and lines running over the neck but the back completely solid extending a little down the sides. One broken necklace, spots on the back half of the body showing good definition with a little linkage, but over the front half of the body only unbroken lines were visible, markings almost sound to the roots.
