I was delighted with the entry of so many quality Birmans and thank the Birman exhibitors for entering their lovely Birmans under me, I had a great day. It was a very happy pleasant day amongst our beloved Birmans, with so many friendly smiling faces. Well done on a very good entry of 70 Birmans entered for the Ist Championship show. My grateful thanks to Beverley for her pleasant company and very good handling of the Cats. Congratulations to the Seal & Blue Point Birman Cat Club on achieving Championship.

Seal or Blue Point Champion Male
Three lads entered and all present.
GCC Pike’s GrCh Athreyu of the Blessed Ones 13c2 23/5/06. Very mature handsome massive Blue Birman lad of excellent type, super strong broad rounded skull, with correct medium length to nose, showing very slight dip. Lovely full round cheeks showing a nicely developed round muzzle, fair depth to chin. Nice medium ears set well apart. Very expressive almost round eyes of a very good blue. I loved the dense even slate/ Grey to this super lad’s ears, mask, and legs and on nice full bushy tail in proportion to his body. I loved the size and boning of this lad, certainly massive in stature with solid boning and weight, with medium length legs with short thick set strong paws, just what I like to see in stud lads, so important. Lovely full even front, gloves, nice back socks with superb full length sparling white gauntlets, to the hock, which again is so important. For time of year this lad has a very nice soft silky quite full coat, that has the correct bluish white tone though the coat, that was beautifully prepared and presented, which just completed the overall look. A very balanced muscular lad in excellent condition, who handed very nicely, he was quite playful and seemed to be enjoying his day out. I have never judged this lovely lad before, it was a pleasure to award him the Grand today; he was in superb condition and beautifully presented, well done indeed.

Every inch a lad who is beautifully balanced and in excellent condition for his 9 years, who was a dream to handle, the perfect gentleman. Nice full gloves, with good back socks, nice full even gauntlets, all feet sparkling white. Beautifully presented and shown, in excellent condition, showing lovely golden hue to his coat that was short (time of year) showing lovely contrast to his darker seal points. I have not judged this handsome big lad for a very long time, it is lovely to see a mature stud looking so good and retaining his wonderful temperament, when his coat is fuller this lovely big lad will be very hard to beat, I was delighted to award him RGCC today and to meet him again, beautifully shown indeed.
