Mrs M Kalal

As always a thoroughly enjoyable show and I thank Elaine, Lisa and John for the kind invitation and warm hospitality. There were some really lovely cats present and the quality was high, the line-up for Best in Show was excellent, which must be very satisfying for the BIS Judge. Once again I was fortunate to have Irene as my steward and we spent a very happy day together handling cats and kittens; many thanks Irene for your excellent presentation of the cats and very good company, I look forward to the next time.
