What a week! Show News & Kittens Video

Well it has been quite a stressful week for us this week. It all started with a rather unpleasant email on the Monday, my Dad was rushed into hospital on the Wednesday, but thankfully he is home now and on the mend. On the Thursday morning I ended up with a rather nasty visual migraine, which I get when stressed and they affect me for a couple of days afterwards. Friday at work was quite a challenge and seemed to last an eternity. So as a result of such a difficult week I am running behind on emails, so please bear with me if you have sent me an email and I haven't replied, I will get to them.

We had paid for the Cattica Newbury TICA show on the Saturday but this was in doubt as I was worrying about my Dad and didn't feel very well at all, and we hadn't even got ready for the show. So Andy got everything ready for the show, he gave Paavo a quick shower and I helped dry him. So on the Friday night I set the alarm for just before 5am and we had decided if I didn't feel well in the morning then we wouldn't go. After a rather bad night we did get up and go off to the show, but after the week we had had I really wasn't expecting it to go well.

We arrived a bit late, and got everything setup, we had taken Paavo the gentle giant and little Akiro at just 4 months he was going to be one of the babies of the show, and he was going along for a chance to see how he coped with it. There were 2 other Siberian male
s, 1 Siberian male alter and 3 other Siberian kittens at the show, so a good turn out.

After both boys got a couple of second Best of Breeds, the weekend seemed to be going how I predicted but then it improved with Paavo gaining an Allbreed final, in which Maria's new boy from Siberia achieved a fabulous Best Cat. Paavo received an 8th Best Cat. Then baby Akiro got Best of Breed and a final where he achieved 2nd Best Longhair Kitten from Monika Dany, and some lovely comments. Way to go Little Akiro! Something exciting to tell his mum Gemini about when he got home. Then Monika went on to give Paavo Best of Breed and a Best Longhair Cat award! Top Man Paavo!

Overall the day turned out well, with the final results being:

IW SGC Cooncreole Paavo
  • Best Longhair Cat - Judge: Monika Dany
  • 6th Best Allbreed Cat - Judge: Jeff Roberts
  • 8th Best Allbreed Cat - Judge: Rob Seliskar
  • 8th Best Allbreed Cat - Judge: Genevieve Basquine
  • 3 Best of Breeds
  • 3 Second Best of Breeds
Alexandrite Akiro
  • 2nd Best Longhair Kitten - Judge: Monika Dany
  • 1 Best of Breed
  • 5 Second Best of Breeds
We are so very proud of the boys and they both behaved like gentlemen.

While we were at the show we got some a couple more Catrix Cat trees, which our little family think are fabulous. They definitely get loads of fun out of them. Andy took the videos today of Galina and Ariana's little ones having fun!
