(Back-to-back with Bedford & District Cat Club Show)

My thanks to Sally and her team for again inviting me to judge at this back-to-back All-Breeds Championship “marathon”. The organisation must have been so challenging and I only have admiration for the splendid way she and her team pulled it off. If there were any hic-ups they were well manoeuvred and I was not aware of them. I was also extremely lucky to have Linda Vousden as my steward. She was tireless in her enthusiasm and great company. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the cats we handled and also extremely grateful for her unflagging attitude in a long and tiring, but very pleasurable day. Thank you Linda. I hope you will steward for me again.

Delightful young lad, but still a bit immature for this prestigious award. Body, although muscular has the feel of a working boy and could do with a little more weight for the size of his frame.

Heavy brow above well spaced yellow eyes of correct shape and set. Profile shows strong nose break, short broad nose and blunt end to muzzle Acceptable chin. Not too happy outside his pen.

(Back-to-back with Cambridgeshire Cat Club Show)
line

My thanks to Sally and her team for again inviting me to judge at this back-to-back All-Breeds Championship “marathon”. The organisation must have been so challenging and I only have admiration for the splendid way she and her team pulled it off. If there were any hiccups they were well manoeuvred and I was not aware of them. I was also extremely lucky to have Linda Vousden as my steward. She was tireless in her enthusiasm and great company. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the cats we handled and also extremely grateful for her unflagging attitude in a long and tiring, but very pleasurable day. Thank you Linda. I hope you will steward for me again.

Before starting on my specific reports, I would like to comment on one particular cat.
I chose Mooney & Reid’s Sup UK & IGr Ch Mainman Kisschase, 27 F, as Best Adult Burmese and was delighted to hear she went on to win Overall Best in Show. She ticks all the boxes for me. Congratulations to her owners/ breeders, Misses Mooney and Reid – very well deserved.

BOB. Moore’s UK 1Gr Ch Anokhi Boy George Born 06.03.07
Lovely sized stylish boy with beautifully prepared, close-lying and even lilac coat with pink caste. Good balance to head of very good Burmese type, my only criticism would be I would like a little more chin. Sweet temperament.

LILAC BURMESE ADULT FEMALE OPEN (1 ENTERED & 1 for BOB Only)

Considered for BOB. Yardley’s Gr. Ch. Papagena YanaYardley Born 01.09.08
Lovely looking girl, large and muscular, but I felt she was just a little too overweight today for a “beauty competition”. Beautiful close-lying shiny lilac coat with warm pink caste. Good type to head, but look rather spoilt by tear stains on her face from her eyes, which of course were very noticeable on a pale face.

1 CC. Power’s Indianstar Sumara Born 13.03.11
Shy but sweet small elegant young girl, heavier than she looks with slender limbs and dainty spoon-shaped feet. Very good tail for shape and length. Beautifully prepared shiny, silky, close-lying, even lilac coat with pink caste. Typical Burmese head with good width to slightly rounded top, medium ears of correct shape and set. Broad slightly flat brow, but this rounds out above widely spaced yellow eyes of correct shape and set. Balanced muzzle. Profile shows good nose break, straight nose and medium depth to level chin. Promising.

TONKINESE ADULT OPEN (1 ENTERED & 1 for BOB Only)

1CC & BOB. Hunter’s Tallica Mickey Blue Eyes (74fn) M Born 22.06.11
This lad is an absolute delight. Talk about “wooing” the judge. What a charmer! Lovely stance to body with long limbs and balanced tapering tail. Beautiful clear apricot coat lying well. Points merge very well with body. Very faint bars on legs. Head also beautifully balanced with well set ears with rounded tips. Expressive well spaced bluey/green eyes of lovely shape. Profile shows gentle slope to nose and shallow but level chin. A really classy exhibit and a delight to judge.

Considered for BOB. Richards’ Gr Ch Romantica Arabian Knight (74b) M Born 21.05.09
Another sweet cat and unlucky to meet winner. Rich chocolate close lying silky coat, a fraction dark, but points blend in well. Very good width to top of head, but I felt his ears were a little wide set. Broad brow. Bluey/green eyes a fraction small and slightly deep set. Profile shows strong break to nose and nose a little short for balance Good whisker pinch. Again a lovely affectionate temperament.

Head slightly longer than wide with rather flat top of head, “M” on forehead. Brow also a little flat. Medium ears with rounded tips slightly pointed forward. Well-spaced yellow oval to round eyes.

lineASIAN CAT ASSOCIATION SHOW - 21st APRIL 2012 line
Congratulations to Anna and her team on producing yet another delightful show. Their shows always feel so intimate, everyone is cared for, yet it is so professionally organised. A very clever balance and one that they have down to a fine art. I must thank my steward Sarah Dewhurst, who travelled to the show especially to steward for me. Her knowledge of the Asians and awareness of the standard was excellent and she handled the cats with care and love. I understood she is hoping to become a Probationer judge of this breed. I wish her every success, I would also like to comment on the household pets present. The presentation of all of them was fabulous. As good as and often better than the pedigree section at some shows. I was particularly impressed with the cats presented by two new young exhibitors.
to the Cat Fancy. Their cats were beautifully prepared with lovely temperaments, and a credit to their young owners.

A.V.ASIAN PREMIER (GRAND CLASS) (2 Present)

GR PR` to JAMES’ PR INYANGA LAIRDOF FILANDRE (68 43dsq) MN
(Red Shaded Silver with Burmese Restriction) Born 31.08.09

What a lovely boy! Good weight with solid muscular body, long sturdy legs with oval paws with toe tufts and beautiful plume to tail, though I would have preferred just a little more length to the tail. Excellent texture to very well prepared glossy coat with subtle red colouring, texture soft along the spine with no woolly undercoat, lengthening down the body to form fringes along the lower edges of the body. Ruff and full breeches also present. Streamers in ears and also small tufts on tips. Lovely Burmese type to head, in fact probably the best I have seen to date on a Tiffany.

Slight bars on legs and one broken necklace. Clear silver undersides extending along inside of legs.

Wedge has blunt end at muzzle and profile shows good nose break with straight nose and deep level chin. Sweet temperament.

WESSEX CAT CLUB SHOW - 3rd MARCH 2012

Congratulations to Elaine, Lisa and John for doing it yet again. Another friendly, well -organised show with their particular magic. Thank you so much for inviting me. I had some very lovely cats to judge all who behaved impeccable, for which I was very grateful as my steward was taken sick, but to be honest, apart from missing her pleasant company, it was no great hardship – more cuddles for me!

GRAND CLASS – AC BURMESE PREMIER NEUTER MALE (3 Present)

1 GR PR WYATT’S PR BLOOMERS BARANG-BARANG (27f) Born 12.07.10
A well-grown, classy boy looking very fit and feeling very muscular. Strong, rounded chest, sturdy but elegant limbs and neat oval paws.

Nicely balanced wedge with good width to top of head. Well-set ears of medium size with rounded tips. Broad brow. Well-spaced expressive golden eyes of very good shape and set. Short balanced muzzle. Profile shows good nose break, straight nose and deep level chin. Easy to handle.

Widely spaced brow, a little flat, but rounds out above well set chartreuse eyes of good shape and set. Blunt muzzle. Profile shows very good nose break, short straight nose and deep level chin.

GRAND CLASS – AC BURMESE PREMIER NEUTER FEMALE (2 Present)

1 GR PR. JARVIS’ GR CH & PR KYMIAN QUIZZICAL (27e) Born 17.06.01
What a super “Golden Oldie” – 10.5 years young and a delight to handle. Really enjoys a cuddle. I didn’t want to put her down. It is lovely to see how some of the older Burmese mature with age like a good wine – and she is a prime example! Well-balanced muscular body, correct limbs and paws and very good tail for shape and balance. Soft short shiny very well presented coat, with lovely subtle mingling of colours. Lovely Burmese head, very well balanced with good width to slightly rounded top of head, medium sized neat ears fitting head beautifully. Good width to broad brow. Widely-spaced chartreuse eyes of correct shape and set. Broad balanced muzzle. Profile shows good nose break, straight nose and level chin. An adorable sweetheart! I learned later that this had made her up. Congratulations to her owner/breeder – well deserved.

RES GR PR. WYATT’S PR BLOOMERS BARIKA BAMBALIINA (27b) Born 2.7.10
A rather plump little girl but still a muscular feel to her body. Straight back, balanced limbs and correct tail. Rather long and unsound coat, but lies well and looks good. Dark chocolate colour varying a little between paler front and darker back half of body. Head shows good width to rounded top with well set medium ears, rounded at the base. Well spaced eyes of correct shape and set, looking just a little green in the hall light. Good balance to short muzzle. Good nose break, straight nose and medium depth to level chin. I feel she needs to mature a little more to be competitive in this class. Very shy but liked a cuddle.

ASIAN TABBY (SPOTTED, CLASSIC, MACKEREL OR TICKED ADULT MALE OPEN (1 Present for BOB only)

BOB considered for CROW & GOSS’ CH KAGURA PRINCE CASPIAN (72 41q) Born 27.11.10

Soft texture to coat showing very good classic symmetry, with rich warm seal markings on a creamy beige background, reducing to pale undersides on a spotty tummy. Coat just a little long and pattern could be crisper. Ocelli on back of ears. Very strong pencilling on cheeks. “M” on forehead. Two broken necklaces. Very gratifying to see such a good example of a “new” colour/pattern within the Asian group.

Broad, rounded brow above widely-spaced clear yellow eyes of correct shape and set. Clear tabby markings on legs, scarab on forehead extending down back with slightly darker spine line to tip of dark tail. Excellent ticking although I would prefer more contrast in coat for perfection, but nevertheless a very attractive girl. I gathered later that this had made her up to Champion.

2. ROSE’S KENNBURY NINEVAH (72 45q) F Born 30.07.2007
Lovely solid girl with good sized muscular body, elegant limbs and oval paws. Well ringed tail with dark tip, slightly thin and would prefer it a little longer.

3. CROW & GOSS’ RAEBURASI KAGURA SPICE (72 45k) F Born 10.02.2010
This is the first time I have judged a Cinnamon Ticked Asian and I found it fascinating. Such a rich vibrant colour. The standard describes it as rich, warm toned medium cinnamon brown markings on a warm light cinnamon brown ground, and in my opinion this described the coat of the girl I was judging beautifully. Muscular shy little girl with elegant limbs and oval paws. Well ringed tail with darker tip. Head shows good width to rather flat top and brow with muzzle just a little fine for balance with small pinch. Medium to large well-set ears with rounded tips and wide at the base and slight forward tilt. Widely-spaced, expressive, well-set deep yellow eyes of correct shape and set. Profile shows nose break acceptable, but nose is a little long and rolls off at the tip. Correct bite and deep level chin. Pink nose leather and pale whisker pads. Sweet temperament.

CROYDON CAT CLUB SHOW - 11th FEBRUARY 2012
I really enjoy this show which is local to us, and because we like to exhibit there I was initially not too happy about judging. However, it was such a well run show and I had some stunningly beautiful cats to judge, that I ended up happy with the decision and had a really great day. I was extremely lucky with my steward Tracy Baker, who, although had never stewarded before, was enthusiastic, caring and keen. Thank you Tracy, we will definitely do it again!

Body of medium build, firm and muscular with limbs in proportion to the body, carrying slightly more weight than I would prefer.

I really do take my hat off to Sally for organising and running this very large show back to back with the Cambridge. It was a very hot day with no noticeable air-conditioning in the hall and many small niggling things going wrong. However, she kept her cool and gave everyone a very good day out. I was unfortunate enough to have my steward pull out the day before. Thank you to my friend Tracy Fordham for coming to my rescue after lunch and helping me handle some of the side classes. It was so appreciated.

3. JONES' WELLBRAND VEGAS LIGHTS born 15.05.2010
Similar age group to the other two boys and in lovely condition although still a little immature but developing well. Tail good length and shape. Coat soft and well prepared, of warm even chocolate, but a little patchy and very noticeable barring on all four legs. Mask rather too much contrast for a young lad. Good width to top of head, ears medium to large, wide at base and tilted forward. Deep yellow expressive eyes and blunt end to muzzle. Good nose break, straight nose and deep
chin. I have to express my concern seeing an entire boy with so many bars,

BOB. WILSHAW'S CH ROSIKHAN YUM YUM born 23.3.2010.

A more mature girl but holding her own well in this very strong class. Firm muscular body and balanced tail. Very well presented warm darker chocolate coat, shiny and lying well. Lovely expressive yellow eyes. What let her down for me was her nose break which could have been a lot more defined. Sweet girl.

Again a lovely two-toned rosetted coat pattern with excellent contrast and very pale underneath. Spine line broken. Head slightly broader across the top than brother, but finer at the jaw hinge. The deciding factor was that this boy has a very slightly under shot bite at present, (probably due to teething) but there was hardly a whisker between them, both being lovely boys and an absolute delight to handle.

BROWN MARBLED BENGAL MALE KITTEN OPEN (1 Present)

Super wild head showing good profile with slight slope to nose and deep level chin. Medium well set ears with rounded tips. Expressive well set green eyes with pale spectacles and broad even nose.

2. O'SULLIVAN'S ZAWADI TWILIGHT (13.08.10)

Sister to the two boys and it was very interesting to see the similarities and differences in the three kittens. This one had a bit of an attitude which contrasted considerably with her two "soppy" brothers. Muscular feel to sleek body with balanced limbs and tail. Very spotted legs and feet. Good contrast to plush softly textured coat with pale gold glittered background showing off black/brown spots and arrowheads and busy pattern on thighs and shoulders. Again lovely and pale underneath. Head only just slightly longer than wide and looking a little too domestic at present. Good width to top of head with medium to large ears with forward tilt. Broad short brow with pencilling on cheeks. Widely spaced green oval shaped eyes with pale spectacles. Broad nose with whisker pads forming. Profile shows slight dip in nose and level chin.

BROWN TORTOISESHELL BURMESE ADULT OPEN (2 Present)

Lovely big golden oldie in beautiful condition, body still feeling muscular and firm. Rounded chest, elegant limbs and oval paws. Tail a little bony but good shape, just long enough. Well mingled slightly long tortie coat, but soft and shiny and lies well.
Lovely head for type with good width to slightly flattened top, medium ears wide at the base with rounded tips.

1 RUFFEL'S BLOOMERS BELCHAMPS BUMPKIN (24.06.10)

Not a happy boy! Large muscular body with strong limbs and oval paws. Well rounded chest and tail that balanced, but unfortunately had a small fault at the end.. Beautiful texture to rich brown coat, close lying and shiny. I am afraid that he did himself no favours by distorting his face and showing his displeasure at being handled. Slightly rounded top of head with well set ears. Brow a little flat, but rounded out above clear yellow eyes. Good nose break, nose rolls off a fraction at leather and muzzle just a little long for balance at present.

BROWN BURMESE KITTEN FEMALE OPEN (1 Present)

BROWN TORTOISESHELL BURMESE KITTEN OPEN (5 Present)

Unfortunately I had to wrong colour exhibit 340 (Oakenshield Airsandgraces) so was not able to judge her. I will mention though that she was a stunning little girl and I look forward to seeing her again when she has been re- registered.

The competition between the runners up was very close, and it was not easy to place second, third and fourth place.

1 & BOB JARVIS' KYMIAN LUCIE LOVEDAY (05.09.10)

A girl who knows how to show herself off to the best advantage. Very chatty and forthcoming taking an interest in everything going on.

Balanced wedge with well set ears, widely spaced expressive yellow eyes of correct shape and set, blunt end to broad muzzle.

What a pleasure it was to be invited to judge at this very special Pearl Anniversary show. My very grateful thanks to Margaret and her team for looking after me so well and to Emerline Callan for acting as my very competent steward as well as being great company. The hospitality during my whole stay was second to none., and I particularly enjoyed my visit on the Monday to Fota Wildlife Park to see the cheetahs and other animals. At the show the standard of the cats was excellent and I had some really lovely exhibits to judge. Thank you all for making me feel so welcome.

Head had rather flat top and brow, but rounded out above pale yellow eyes looking a little round when I judged him. Good nose break and straight nose.

As usual, this was a very well-run show and I really enjoyed my day. Thanks to Grace and her team for inviting me again and for the excellent hospitality. I must also thank fellow judge Helen Marriott Power for chauffeuring me when I was unable to drive due to a recent eye operation. I thoroughly enjoyed the "Judge's therapy" at Wal-Mart on the way down, and would recommend it highly to any inspiring shopper! Thanks must also go to my steward, Annie Coate. This was her first time stewarding, and her gentle handling of the cats and interest in the breeds made the day go very smoothly. Thank you Annie. Would be delighted to have you steward for me again. .

Res Imp Gr Pr. TIMBERLAKE'S UK & IMP GR PR SYKRIS CHEZACER (27) 27.07.01

What a trouper! A very laid back professional gentleman who just liked to be cuddled and purred a lot .Although a very attractive exhibit, I felt he was carrying rather too much weight when I handled him and wasn't doing himself justice.

Slightly long along back but lies well. Good width to slightly flattened top of head. Medium to large well set ears. Broad brow which rounds out above well spaced expressive yellow eyes of very good shape and set. Blunt end to muzzle which is a fraction square and I would prefer it shorter for balance, but still acceptable within the standard. Profile shows good nose break, straight nose and shallow but level chin. After grumbling at me all the time I was judging, she did have the grace to give me a wash before I put her back - so all is forgiven!

2nd. HUTCHISON'S IRREP BONGALULU (21.05.06)

If I had had my Asian hat on I would have questioned whether this girl could be a caramel tortie. However, as this colour is not recognised in the Burmese, I can only suggest that she is a very unusual dark colour for a lilac tortie Burmese, coat tending more to blue than lilac, and within their colour recognition looked more like a blue tortie than a lilac in the hall light. Body muscular and elegant, limbs slender with neat oval paws. Tail correct shape but would prefer slightly longer. She had a lovely texture to a very soft and silky coat, Wedge a little unbalanced at the moment, with muzzle being slightly fine at the jaw hinge. Top of head slightly flattened with good width between ears of good shape and set. Widely spaced expressive greenish toned eyes of good set. Profile shows good nose break and shallow but level chin. A real wriggler.
