Cali - never ceases to amaze us.
Well, we took the long trip to Newbury last weekend to the Cattica show. It was lovely to be there once again - as I missed it last year, even though David managed to go with Altai. Great to see old friends, and make some new ones along the way. We had a lovely 3 night stay in the Hilton - and thank the Club very much for negotiating (as usual) a wonderful rate!
Cali - did us proud - finalling in 9 out of the 12 Rings. Amazing - given the quality of the cats being shown right now. Some gorgeous persians and especially Fahlberg Blue Diamond of Riascatz (Marie Hill) - the most wonderful cat! Some stunning Maine Coon, Exotics and Bengals of course. Not forgetting Gracie - who we'd not seen in a while - a most gorgeous Turkish Van. Way to go Gracie - Supreme Grand!!
Our thanks to Cali's judges, for their care in handling, and for allowing her into their Finals.
A quick snap of Cali - first thing Sunday morning - hall pretty much empty - with the exhibitors starting to arrive and Cali wondering what on earth she is doing there - out of bed - ungroomed (as yet) and not exactly 'raring to go'...........
