A very enjoyable show with lots of special touches, I must congratulate Lesley and her team on a great show with a warm, friendly atmosphere. The hospitality was superb; it was also lovely to be met at the station and everything arranged to ensure I caught the designated train home. I was very grateful to Catherine Tew for her excellent company as my steward and her daughter, Anna, for second stewarding so well.
OLYMPIAN - AV IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER NEUTER, MALE
Phew! A huge class with 13 handsome cats present. I had a clear winner and at least six runners-up with scarcely a whisker between them, making my decision a real challenge - What a privilege and a pleasure!
1 OLY HOLDER’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER MYLYNN MAGNIFIQUE, 62 43s, MN, 5.9.2008
If ever a cat was aptly named it was this one – he truly is so magnificent and noble! His type is outstanding with excellent balance and style. His head was long and well-proportioned with excellent width between the large, pricked ears. The latter were wide at the base and their setting continued the even lines of the triangular wedge. He had a fine muzzle but there was excellent depth to the chin. The nose was straight and the tip of the chin truly did line up with the tip of the nose in the same vertical plane. His eyes were a wonderful depth of emerald green, oriental in shape and set with excellent width between them. The expression was proud and confident. He had superb head carriage. His neck was long and slender. His body was also long, svelte, muscular and firm with long, elegant legs and oval paws. The tail was long, tapering and formed a plume. His coat was semi-long, fine in texture and silky. It had a healthy gloss and lay flat along the spine, fringing down the sides. He had a slight frill. He was an excellent silver with not a trace of tarnish. The shading extended around two thirds the length of the shaft. There were some ghost tabby markings to the wedge which served to enhance his type and also some apparent on the legs which is, of course, allowed in the Standard. Not only was this cat an exceptional example of his breed, his star quality and “presence” was obvious to all who understand anything about a cat!
RES ANDERSON-KEEBLE’S UK & IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER SANTILLO FEROMESES MERCURY, 78 30s, MN, 10.7.2007 Another cat of exceptional type and quality but also with that extra personality and “presence” I feel is so important at this level. His head formed a slightly rounded wedge of medium length. His ears were fairly large with a slight flare and set well apart to continue the lines of his head. His large, rounded, almond shaped eyes were set beneath a level brow and that, combined with the parallel lines formed by his nose of even width gave him the unique “worried” expression that is so crucial. The eyes were a clear, gooseberry The body was long and elegant with a hard, muscular feel. His legs were slender with almost round feet. The tail was of medium length and tapered to a rounded tip. His coat was of medium length, close-lying and glossy. The coat was dense with a resilient texture. He was an excellent, clean silver with black tracings and well separated spots. His facial markings were clearly defined and he had a complex scarab on the top of his head. He was beautifully shown in excellent condition and was thoroughly enjoying his day at the show.
I also considered BURGESS’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER KASSARO CISCOKID, 64 41w, MN, 14.5.2009 A very handsome Maine Coon of excellent type and expression. He was shown in superb condition and was a close contender but I would have liked so see parallel lines down his spine as he was a classic tabby. WATSON’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER ISADORYOU FIRE AND ICE, 64 75dw, MN, 4.8.2009 Another close contender who was mature and handsome. He tended to hold his ears a trifle wide but otherwise was an excellent example of the breed. He was presented beautifully. CREATON & WALKER’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER CRINKLES JACK FROST, 79L 15d, MN, 2.5.2007 has excellent Selkirk Rex type and a wonderful expression. He had a friendly personality but was suffering from a lack of curl along the spine and I would have liked to see more of a ruff. HUMMERSTON’S CH & SUPREME UK IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER CHRISAN CAMELOTT, 33 31s, MN, 3.7.200 was in my top three – I really love this cat and think his type and elegance superb. Today he seemed a little subdued and so the two male neuters prepared to “strut their stuff” beat him. EVANS’ UK & IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER MAIPENRAI DOWJAI, 34, MN, 20.8.2007 had excellent type and expression but he is a little plump which blurred his type and made his tail appear short? MACLAINE’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER BOMBASTIC MIDNIGHT, 76b30, MN, 1.5.2007 This was a handsome cat with an excellent temperament. I felt his eyes were so expressive. He had good head type but was a little flat on the forehead in my opinion. BESWICK’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER MAINMAN LEONARDO, 27, MN, 6.4.2007 was another close contender with such a friendly and persuasive personality. I liked his type and he had a beautifully short, rich brown coat. He was in my “Eeny, Meeny, Miny Mo” list! SIMPSON’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER PAPAGENA XANDER, 27b, MN, 9.9.2007 was a handsome chocolate Burmese with type and style but he tended to open his eyes a little too much and they appeared round. His coat was not as short as the brown boy’s. ROBINSON’S GRAND CHAMPION & IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER MOLYNMEUX GOLD DUST, 27f, MN, 23.12.2008 was a handsome cream Burmese with lovely type and a typical expression but I felt, at this exalted level, the cream was a little “hot” in tone. GLAUBITZ’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER LITTLEFEAT DISTANT THUNDER, 32a, MN, 29.5.2009, a handsome red point elegant and stylish. He had excellent type, but the coat on his lower spine was a little coarse in texture. SMOUT’S IMPERIAL GRAND PREMIER KAMIK FIRECRACKA, 32a, MN, 18.7.2008 is a cat well worthy of this prestigious title but was unfortunate to meet such a line-up of stars! I really did like him a great deal and gave him top awards in other classes. He had superb type and a wonderfully wicked, confident expression. He really was “the business” and unlucky to meet such cracking company.
AC SIAMESE/BALINESE GR PR, MALE
1 IGP N/A JOHNSON’S GRAND PREMIER ADNIOAM JUST-ABOUT-ME, 24n, MN, 7.2.2009
This male had good type and balance overall; his wedge had length but there was a slight pinch to the muzzle. The ears were large, well pricked and set well apart to continue the lines of the wedge. His profile was almost straight and there was depth to the chin. His eyes were of oriental size and set and a good tone of blue. He had a long, muscular body with long, elegant legs and oval paws. The tail was quite long but rather thick which blurred the elegance. He had a short, silky coat that was close lying. The caramel was quite dark but the body showed contrast. He was shown in excellent condition and had a sweet temperament. I would have awarded a certificate but did not feel he was of the “exceptional” quality demanded of an Imperial Certificate.
AC SIAMESE/BALINESE GR PR, FEMALE
1 IGP BLORE’S CHAMPION & GRAND PREMIER LUPAZ WENDELLA, 32t1, FN, 10.12.2002
An older female who was looking good for her age; she has an even wedge with well-set ears that continue the lines. Her oriental eyes were set well and a very good colour with a wicked expression. The profile was straight and her chin had depth. She had good head carriage. Her body was well muscled; she had elegant legs and a tapering tail that balanced well. Her coat was a little long but smoothed down well and was glossy. She was a very good tortie tabby point and though there was shading to the body, she still had contrast. She was shown in excellent condition and had a lovely temperament.
AC EXOTIC CHAMPION, MALE
1 GCC CHESTERMAN’S CHAMPION ADECISH BLIMER O RILEY, 70 2a, M, 12.9.2010
A young male who was, nevertheless, strong and cobby with excellent boning and a firm, muscular feel to him. His head was round and massive with small ears set well apart and low on the head. They were rounded at the tips and fitted well into the contours of the head. His forehead was well rounded and he had a short, broad nose with a stop. His eyes were large and round with a bold expression. The colour was a good, clear orange. His body was solid and muscular with depth to the chest and good shoulders developing. He stood low on strong legs with large, round paws. The tail was short and thick; it gave overall balance. His coat was dense except for a small area on his lower back but it was well prepared and stood away from the body well. He was immaculate. He was in excellent condition and had a lovely temperament.
AC EXOTIC PREMIER, MALE
1 GPR GILLOT’S PREMIER ZENDIQUE WHITETIE AFFAIR, 70 12a1t, MN, 5.9.2010
I really liked this young male as he had “presence” as well as confidence and personality and showed himself to great advantage. He had excellent type and a wonderful expression. The head was round and massive with excellent breadth to the skull and neat little round tipped ears set well apart in the rounded contours of the head. The forehead was rounded and he had large, bold eyes that were an excellent colour. The nose was short and broad with a stop and a fully formed leather with excellent nostrils. The muzzle was well developed and full. He had a good chin. His body was muscular and solid with cobby conformation and he stood low on sturdy legs with large, round paws. His coat was dense, soft and plush. It really was full of life and stood out from the body. The white was immaculate and his tabby patches on his head, shoulders and tail were a rich tone with well-defined markings. I really feel this boy has a bright future!
AC BIRMAN PREMIER, MALE
1 GPR WILLIAM’S PREMIER MUCHADO ATHOS, 13c11, MN, 20.5.2009
A handsome Birman with a strong, broad, rounded head; his nose was of medium length with a slight dip to the profile and his chin was full and well-developed. His cheeks were full and nicely rounded. His ears were of medium size and set well apart. He had excellent eyes that were large, almost round and a very good blue. The expression was gentle. He had a long body that was well-boned and muscular. He had thick set legs of medium length and strong paws. The tail was bushy and balanced well. He had a silky coat of good length with warm seal tabby points and excellent contrast to the body. His gloves and gauntlets were snowy and well-shaped.

AC BIRMAN PREMIER, FEMALE
1 GPR SKELDING’S PREMIER BOSTIN TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS, 13c14, FN, 17.4.2009
A very pretty lilac tabby point with very good type and balance overall. She had a broad, well rounded head with full cheeks and a well-developed muzzle.

ORIGINAL FOREIGN SH CHAMPION, MALE
1 GCC FLEMING’S CHAMPION SHOELINA COSSACK PATROL, 16a, MN, 6.7.2010
I just loved this male’s personality; to me he had that true Russian relaxed attitude that comes from knowing he is exceptional as far as type, quality and temperament are concerned! He was mature, masculine but also elegant. His wedge was short with a flat plane to the top of the head and ears that were set vertically, broad at the base and pointed at the tips. Perhaps they could have been marginally larger? He had a very good angle and a virtually straight nose. The chin had depth and his whisker pads were prominent giving a lovely finish to the wedge. He had beautiful eyes set rather wide apart; they were of almond shape and a good green. His body was long and muscular with very good legs and tail to balance. His coat was short, dense and plush. He was a very attractive medium blue with a pleasing silvery sheen. He was shown in excellent condition and had a superb temperament.
RES FLEMING’S CHAMPION SHOELINA JAZZPA RYSKA, 16a, M, 6.7.2010
Another handsome male who could hold his ears vertically when alert; he had excellent type and quality with beautiful eyes and expression. I did not feel his profile and angle were quite as good as my winner’s but he had lovely whisker pads to finish his short wedge. He was muscular but elegant with very good legs and tail. His coat was reasonably soft, plush and dense and I liked his colour. Again he was shown in excellent condition and had a superb temperament. Though not quite the star quality of Cossack Patrol for me, I nevertheless thought he too was well worthy of a Grand Certificate in different company.
ORIGINAL FOREIGN SH CHAMPION, FEMALE
1 GCC WARRENER’S CHAMPION REXIRU BLACK ORCHID, 33a36, F, 23.3.2009
A very attractive Devon of excellent type and a lovely pixie expression! She had a short wedge with breadth at the cheeks and high cheek bones. She had a strong muzzle with a well-defined whisker break and good depth to her chin. Her ears were large and set reasonably low. They were very wide at the base and rounded at the tips with tiny tufts. She had beautiful eyes that had a mischievous expression. They were large, oval shaped and set well apart with a slight slope towards the outer edges of her ears. In profile, her forehead was curved, she had a fair stop and depth to her chin. She had excellent head carriage and a slender neck. Her body was hard and muscular although slender and elegant with breadth to the chest. Her legs were slim and her paws neat and oval. Her tail was long and tapering. She had a very good coat that was short, dense and soft in texture with excellent depth to the waves. She was shown in sparkling condition and had an engaging personality.
2 RES W/H NOBLE’S CHAMPION LARKSONG GHOST DANCER, 16a, F, 8.6.2010
I felt this young female was small and rather rangy. She has reasonable type but her coat was flat and close-lying. She had a sweet temperament but I did not feel she was ready at this time for the Grand Classes.
ANY OTHER FOREIGN CHAMPION, FEMALE
1 GCC WHITEHOUSE’S CHAMPION MAUOLOGY ANATASE, 78 30s, F, 24.2.2009
An elegant and attractive Mau of very good type and style; her wedge was of medium length and slightly rounded. Her ears were moderately large, broad at the base and fairly pointed. They were set well back on the head and continued the lines of the wedge. She had a gentle contour to the profile and a good chin. I really liked her expressive eyes. They were large, rounded almond in shape and set well apart and straight beneath a level brow. Her nose was of uniform width and that, coupled with her beautiful gooseberry green eyes gave her that sought after worried expression. She had a graceful body that was muscular with elegant legs and almost round paws. The tail tapered and was a good length to balance. She was a clean silver with excellent black spots and markings showing great contrast and clarity. She was beautifully shown in excellent condition and had a sweet temperament.
RES FRYER’S CHAMPION ELMYRA TABATHA, 72 45b, F, 5.11.2010
Another beauty who ran the winner close and also was of excellent type and quality. She had a short, balanced wedge with width at the cheeks and a blunt finish to the muzzle. Her ears were of medium size, spaced well apart to continue the lines of the upper part of the face. They were broad at the base, rounded at the tips and tilted slightly forward. I would like a more distinct nose break for perfection, but she had a good chin. Her eyes were large and set well apart. The top line formed a very slight curve that slanted towards the nose and the lower line was generously rounded. She had a slender, elegant body that was well muscled. Her legs were slender with oval paws. The tail tapered and was rounded at the tip. Her coat was excellent, short, fine and close-lying. Her ticking was excellent and the colour was rich in tone.

He had a solid, muscular body that was cobby and compact with excellent boning to the short, thick legs. The paws were round. The tail was short, thick and rounded at the tip. Excellent coat quality; it was dense, plush and soft in texture but stood away from the body well. He had a lovely pattern and was beautifully presented in excellent condition. Ran the BOB winner close for that award but no quite so much of a “Look at me!” on the day.
2 MALLABONE’S CHAMPION FINCHFIELD ITS-NOW-ORNEVER, 70 7, MN, 25.5.2010

TABBY SERIES BIRMAN ADULT, MALE
1CC + BOB MOTT’S TORMIST STORM TIGER, 13c13, M, 10.5.2011
I just loved this young male! He had outstanding type and quality, plus the temperament and “presence” that gave him the edge in a very competitive class. His head had breadth and balance with medium ears set well apart. His cheeks were full and his muzzle developing well. He had an excellent profile and depth to the chin. His eyes were large, almost round, a beautiful blue and wonderfully expressive. His body was long with excellent muscle tone and boning for his age.

Another very promising youngster with very good type and balanced overall; he had a very good head with breadth of skull, full cheeks and muzzle developing well. His ears were of medium size but he tended to hold them a little high. His body was long and muscular with well boned legs and a tail that balanced well. His silky coat was well presented. He was a good colour with well-defined tabby points and lovely contrast to the body. His gloves were snowy but a little low and the left gauntlet was a little short.
3 HAMILTON’S ATAKAD ANOTHER ATTOYSHARL, 13c11, M, 2.3.2011
A handsome young male who was well presented in excellent condition; he had good type but I felt his eyes were a little pale and I would have preferred a firmer chin. He had a muscular body with good legs and tail. The coat was well presented with well-defined points and lovely contrast. His gloved and gauntlets were rather uneven but acceptable.
4 DICKERSON’S TORMIST STARSHINE, 13c12, M, 1.4.2010

His silky coat was well presented with a well-defined tabby pattern and reasonable contrast to the body. His left sock was low but otherwise the gloves and gauntlets were fine.
I also considered GARDINOR’S CHAMPION MUSRAFY ATAKAD AMBASSADOR and MASON’S GRAND CHAMPION FELONIE THE FULL MONTY for the BOB award. Ambassador was strong and masculine with very good type and quality but I felt his chin sloped away. Full Monty was well presented but I felt his eyes were too round, giving him a rather “Persian” look.

A very attractive and well grown female who was a good weight with excellent muscle and boning for her age; her type was very good. The head had breadth with medium ears set well apart.

I also considered for the BOB award: ADAMS’ UK GRAND CHAMPION AREZZA MY FAIRLADY, 13c13 She was very attractive with good type and a gentle expression. She was a lovely colour with contrast. I would have preferred a stronger chin; MOTT’S CHAMPION JANDOUGLEN KAITLYN, 13c14 was a pretty female but she did look a little immature and there was a cool tone to her lilac tabby points; MOTT’S GRAND CHAMPION SEILEACH, 13c13 was mature and of good type but I felt her eyes were rather pale and her gauntlets uneven.
RUSSIAN BLUE KITTEN, MALE
1 STARK’S DUSHENKA DUKE ELLINGTON, 16a, M, 10.9.2011
A promising kitten who was well grown and muscular but elegant too; his wedge is a fraction long at the moment but his whisker pads were reasonably prominent.
