FELINE CORONAVIRUS (FCoV) RESEARCH
Please visit Langford Veterinary Services for more information.
Our study requires tissue samples collected from cats that have died from any cause or disease, and at any age; we are not specifically recruiting FIP cases.
Many thanks again for your help with this research. We hope that
it will benefit many cats in the future through its findings.
To all interested parties:-
Change of address:-
Mrs Eileen Fryer
5 Aston Close,
My apologies to the exhibitors of the Capital/Eastern LH & Semi LH shows for the lateness of my Judging report. The day after the show I went down with Bronchitis which I have just recovered from, however my report will be on the site later this week.

THE RED POINT & TORTIE POINT SIAMESE CAT CLUB
The Red Point & Tortie Point Siamese Cat Club wishes all members, friends and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a happy and successful New Year. Many thanks to everyone who has supported us during the year, especially those who have given so generously by offering items to sell on the club stall, and those who have spent money with us. Our next club stall is at the SPSCC/SCSBE Siamese shows on 21st February 2015.
Members are reminded that subscriptions are due on 1st January, and payment should be sent to the Club Treasurer, Mrs Pat Cook, at 77 Vine Road, Tiptree, Colchester, Essex CO5 0LT. The rates are currently £5 Single and £7 Joint.
The Schedule for our 5th Championship Show on 11th April 2015, at Wendover Memorial Hall, will be available online from 11th January, and paper copies will be sent to last year's exhibitors as well as to members who are known to be current exhibitors. Anyone else requiring a hard copy should send an A5 SAE to the Assistant Show Manager, Ms Judy Emmens, 12 King Alfred Place, Winchester, Hants SO23 7DF. Copies will also be available from the usual trade stands at shows. The show is open to all colours of Siamese and Balinese, all LH/SH Oriental breeds, and we also have a Household Pet section again. Please enter early - last year we had to return several entries that had been received by the closing date, just because our hall was full.
We will again have our raffle, tombola and stalls for exhibitors to browse during judging, as well as our famous selection of hot and cold food for sale at very reasonable prices, including breakfast baps! This is the Siamese show everyone was talking about in 2014 - see pictures and feedback on the club website at http://www.rptpscc.co.uk/show-2014.htm
