Mrs E Corps
Grateful thanks to the show managers for my invitation to what I gather
is to be their last time as Show Managers. As usual it went like clockwork
and although the entry was a little down as with all shows at present,
the atmosphere was great and I enjoyed talking to the exhibitors after
I had finished. I was ably assisted by Ian Macro, who while not familiar
with the Siamese, managed very well. I look forward to another time.
Imperial Gr. Ch. Siamese/Balinese. Male. Awarded to HARRINGTON'S
I.GR. CH. HELLFIRE CASTASPELL, 32 10, Apricot tabby point Siamese, 6yr4m.
I debated for some time over the awarding of this due to a few war-wounds
on his ears and two healed patches on his front leg, but underneath he
still had style. Strong masculine and balanced wedge, near straight profile,
chin of fairly good depth and missing his incisors now but gums met. Ears
set wide and of balancing size and nicely slanted eyes of a good depth
of blue. Well fed and muscular long body on strong long limbs and tail
of balancing length. Tabby markings of a dusky apricot, with single ribbons,
indistinct "m", very faint thumb-prints and bracelets, and rings
on most of tail length. His coat was a touch harsh over the spine, but
for a working boy of this age I felt he was in excellent condition. I
would, however, suggest that he now take honourable retirement from the
show world and concentrates on what he probably does very well!
Caramel Point Siamese Adult, female. C.C., BOB, RICHARDS' DEBIKAT
MAYZI-FANTAZEE, 1yr1m. Another tricky decision, as we could not handle
this fiery lass very easily. Medium wedge, good depth to chin but saw
little of her bite which appeared to be acceptable. Slightest of dips
to her profile and large perfectly placed ears following the lines of
the wedge. Angled eyes of a bright blue, elegant body lines and limbs
and tail tapering nicely and of a balancing length. Points of a mid cool
toned caramel and almost clear coat of good texture and short - just a
slight shading on her flanks. 2. MORGAN'S CH. ASTRALBLAESE APHRODITE,
2yr1m. This wee girl needed a little more size although she was quite
well covered. Medium wedge with dip in profile, chin of good depth although
it sloped back slightly and untidy bite with only one incisor still "in
situ". Ears good size and set and eyes a little rounded but angled
and of a pleasing depth of colour. Elegant neckline, slightly cobby body
on sturdy legs and nicely tapering tail of good length. Mid caramel points
and almost clear coat of pleasing texture.
Seal Point Siamese Kitten, male. 1, BOB w/h. CHERRY'S CIATRA CHEEKY
CHAPPY, 3m3wk. This sweet baby had much to commend but colour was not
good. Short wedge, pinch and dip to profile - all things that should even
out with time. Fair chin and acceptable bite, excellent ears for size
and set wide and slanted eyes of a darkish blue that could have been even
darker for preference. Tiny baby body developing on spindly limbs and
good length of tapering tail. Points of a dark and cold black seal on
mask and tail which was also rather brindled. Short close coat lightly
shaded and cold in tone again. I withheld the BOB due to the colour.
Seal Point Siamese Neuter, male. P.C., BOB, JANICKI'S PR. SHERMESE
FABULOUS FABERGE, 1yr2m. A super chap but such a wimp and not showing
himself to advantage. Longish wedge, good depth of chin and good bite.
Good profile, enormous ears well set with loads of width between and slanted
and expressive eyes of deep blue. Long elegant body, limbs and tail of
balancing length. Points all matching and of a dark warm seal with some
tonally matching shading on a coat of excellent quality. 2. BUSHELL'S
ARTENSA SUPER TROUPER, 1yr1m. A slightly unbalanced appearance to this
lad, with a small head and large body. Long wedge narrowing at the muzzle,
fair depth of chin and bite a touch over but acceptable. Large ears set
quite well and eyes of mid blue. Long and elegant body lines with a tail
of just adequate length. Points of a dark warm seal with a sprinkling
of slightly suspect lighter hairs in his belly spot. Coat of lovely quality
and condition quite heavily shaded but still contrast.
A/C Siamese/Balinese self pointed Adult. 1.RICHARDS' DEBIKAT MAYZI-FANTAZEE.
2. MORGAN'S CH. ASTRALBLAESE APHRODITE.
A/V Aristocrat Adult. 1 RICHARDS' DEBIKAT MAYZI-FANTAZEE. 2. JONES' TILDEN
WYCKEDLADY, 35, Foreign White female, 3yr. This sweet girl had a medium
wedge, chin sloping back slightly and no incisors, and a very slight dip
in her profile. Ears good for size and set, orientally slanted eyes of
a pleasing depth of blue and length to body which was firm, on long limbs
and with a tail of balancing length. Coat of quality - short and fine.
3. HATCHETT'S NUTROSTAR PRECIOUS GOLD, 37n, Oriental caramel, 3yr5m.
A/C Siamese/Balinese Breeders Kitten. 1. SIMPSON'S SHERMESE MASQUERADE,
24a, Blue point female Siamese female, 4m2wk. This lively kitten was a
good size for her age. Medium wide wedge, good chin and bite and straight
profile. Extremely large wide set ears and eyes a touch rounded but nicely
angled and of a deep blue. Firm body developing muscle and tail of balancing
length, tapering nicely. Points of a darkish blue and coat of good quality
showing muddy shading at present but overall the required cool tone. 2.
WITHERS' TINTALLY SHOOTING STAR, 32 1, Seal tabby point Siamese female,
5m3wk. Another well grown kitten with much to commend, but I felt that
she did not quite have the promise of the winner - but it was close! Short
wide wedge, good chin and bite just acceptable, almost straight profile
and ears of good size and well set. Eyes a touch full but of a pleasing
depth of blue. Elegant b ody lines and tail of good length. All markings
present and of a rather cold and black seal at present, with single tracings
and broken bracelets. Coat of excellent quality, also a touch cold in
tone. The third kitten was absent.
A/C Siamese/Balinese Limit Kitten. 1. RINGROSE'S JAKURTZZI NIGHTSIDEOFEDEN,
32fn, Apricot point Siamese male, 6m3wk. This charmer had a medium wedge,
good chin and bite, missing some lower incisors and straight profile.
Nicely balanced ears for set and size and eyes slanted and of a bright
blue. Firm muscular body on long limbs and tapering tail. Points of a
light apricot, extremely pale on the limbs as yet, and coat short and
sleek. No other awards as the other kitten was the wrong colour - PRYCE'S
TEGATCO LUCIANUS, registered as 32 7, Cinnamon tabby point Siamese male,
4m, but far too pale for this and Fawn would be more appropriate. Rounded
head with firm chin but unable to see his bite as he was rather angry!
Ears fair for size but held too high, eyes rather round and of a mid blue,
well developed body for his size on long sturdy legs with large paws and
tail a touch thick and needing a little more length for balance. Coat
of good texture.
A/V maiden kitten. 1. JONES' ADECIAM PHOEBE, 41e. Oriental tortie
female, 4m. What an adorable little person! Medium wedge with even lines
and slight kitten pinch, good chin and bite, almost straight profile and
ears well set and of a good size for balance. Almond shaped eyes of a
super green, wriggly body on sturdy limbs and tail of good length and
tapering. All markings of black and and rich red, with tabbying on head
and tail, and paler tummy, and excellent coat texture. 2. CHERRY'S CIATRA
A/C Siamese/Balinese self pointed neuter. 1. JANICKI'S PR.SHERMESE
FABULOUS FABERGE. 2. MORGAN'S PR. ASTRALBLAESE ACHILLES, 24b, Chocolate
point Siamese male, 2yr1m. This nervous chap was difficult to assess,
with longish wedge, deep chin and unable to see bite clearly but appeared
to be missing some incisors but level. Straight profile, ears of good
size but held a touch too high and slanted eyes full with fright but of
a pleasing depth of blue. Huge well developed body, long limbs and tail
of adequate length. Points of a darkish chocolate but some warmth evident,
slight spectacles and coat of excellent condition slightly shaded. Such
a pity he was so nervous.
A/C Siamese/Balinese breeders neuter. 1. FREEMAN'S KRISTIKATS SIMPLYBLUE,
32 8, Caramel tabby point Siamese male, 1yr. This cat had overly dominant
eyes but in other respects was quite even, with a medium wedge, receding
chin but bite just acceptable, ears good for size and set and eyes slanted
but held too full - however they were of an excellent depth of blue. Firm
and well developed body, legs and tail of balancing length. All markings
present of a mid caramel with almost solid tail and shading to tone on
coat of good quality. He also had a wound on his ear to which I called
the vet - hopefully it will heal very quickly.
A/C Siamese/Balinese senior neuter. 1. HARRINGTON'S PR. LOLUJA
CASTINGASPELL, 32 10, Apricot tabby point Siamese male, 2yr7m. This cat
had such a superior and calm expression - oozing charm. Long wedge, untidy
bite and almost straight profile. Very large ears set wide and expressive
eyes with good depth of blue. Huge long and muscular body on equally long
limbs with tail tapering nicely and of good length. Markings of a mid
apricot, fainter scarab and bracelets, and rings along most of tail length.
Warm off-white coat of excellent quality.
I must also mention cat 372, who was wrongly registered, but had she been
entered as 32b8, a tortie point and not 32 8, a tabby, would have been
my choice for "Best of variety adult". I even asked Ian to check
with the entry form and such a pity as she was lovely, but we all make
