Show News

After another busy week here Andy and I went off to the Ragitime TICA show at Godmanchester on the Saturday only, two days just seemed too much!

So with a 4:30am start, not just the Sibs have to do their hair, Andy does too, only kidding it is me who takes forever to get ready in the morning. Since a child I have been allergic to them and the slowest person ever to get ready! We got there just before 9am after a warp speed drive down in the Scoob, and after a tour around the car park we went through to the show where we met up with friends and got the boys ready.

We took Paavo, Akiro and little Hendrix, and they all did really well. Here are there finals:

IW SGC Cooncreole Paavo
  • 2nd Best Allbreed Cat (count 51) Judge: Connie Webb
  • 3rd Best Allbreed Cat (count 54) Judge: Thomas Andersen
Alexandrite Akiro (6 months)
  • Best (1st) Longhair Kitten (count 17) Judge: Brigette Berthelon
  • 7th Best Allbreed Kitten (count 34) Judge: Connie Webb
  • 8th Best Allbreed Kitten (count 36) Judge: Don Caruthers
  • 8th Best Allbreed Kitten (count 36) Judge: Thomas Andersen
Alexandrite Hendrix (4 months)
  • 5th Best Allbreed Kitten (count 36) Judge: Martine Caillard
So it was a brilliant day for us and we had some great comments about the boys. They make us very proud.

We also saw little Alexandrite Argentia who now lives with Erica and Darren and Maisie, her big Sis. Even though Argentia didn't final this time she behaved and looked like a princess. It was lovely seeing her again and her new family, who spoil her rotten :-)

So we got home about 9pm at night, all very tired, and ready for a well earned curry and film!

Horror Hendrix in the snow!

Here are a few photos of Alexandrite Hendrix in the snow taken yesterday. His collar was a bit big so when he ran I had to go too! It must have looked hilarious!

He looked so sweet but his tummy got really wet and Andy had to dry him with the towel when he was back inside. He did love it and just wanted to scamp about. The photo of him with his ears back is just before he scamps off!

Kittens Update

Well after posting yesterday that we had only Merlin looking for his forever home, he has been adopted today. I am sad, I was sad to see sweet Autumn go on Saturday and then baby Merlin today, but they will both have loads of fun and love in their new homes. The house does seem very strange and quiet without them all...

Therefore we don't have any kittens currently available, our next litters are due in February. I have created a new page on the website which details the exciting news of who is expecting little bundles of Alexandrite mischief next.

Please see the Kittens - Breeding Plans for details.
