YOUNG EXHIBITORS PRESENTATION CLASS – INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: 1. MARINA CURTIS & CURTILLA BLUE LUNA ECLIPSE (16a) female. A very confident presentation and handles her cat well. The kitten was very active and with all going on around, Marina kept her kitten well under control. Marina explained what the Russian cat should look like and how to prepare her kitten for the show. Her knowledge of the vetting-in procedure was very good, just needs to find out more about boosters and the frequency of these. Marina knew how a cat achieved a title.  Marina has done extremely well to progress to Intermediate level and her enthusiasm and commitment to the Scheme is to be applauded. Her confidence has grown so much since the first time she was second steward for me earlier this year. I wish her well on the scheme. An excellent presentation, well done.
