        I left home in pouring rain, lovely  sunny day in Kendal and
        then drove home in heavy rain.  

           I had decided to enter Oscar at this show and it  was to be his 
           first time out in over 12 months.  He does love his 'days out' and 
           it seemed a pity to leave him at home now that the GCCF have 
           opened up new classes for Imperial titled cats.  I must admit I was 
           a little shell-shocked to be informed by text message that Oscar
           had won the Olympian Class  in a line-up of 5 top winning Imperial
           titled cats.  Thank you very much, Mrs. Marriott-Power. 
           I believe he is the FIRST British cat to get this award.
           Here he  is, relaxing after a hard day being  admired!!

      Saturday, 16th April, 2011

      This was well  worth the early start!   Such a friendly show and the 
      amenities are very good.  Plenty of car parking and good inexpensive
      canteen all day.  Also plenty of seats around to rest your weary legs.  

       Leo was on top form and I recovered quickly from the fact that he 
       pushed open the top  of  his  carrying box  and had a short  saunter round
     a few pens.  However, he was easily scooped up and  returned to his pen
       He has  such a  wonderful temperament -why  did I worry?

       Leo was awarded the Imperial Grand Certificate (judge Mrs.S.Heavens), also
      the Grand Certificate (judge Grace Denny), best of breed and first in all  his
      side classes.  SO  A RED CARD DAY  FOR LEO.

      Because of 'maternity' duties at home (waiting for Fly to start kittening) I was unable
       to take Leo to  this show.  Fortunately Jane Best was able to take
       him for me.  Thanks Jane.

       We were in close contact through the day and I was absolutely over the moon to hear
        that Leo had won the Grand Certificate (judge Rosemary Fisher) and was awarded

Brought Fly's kitten home today.   She  only produced one kitten on 
7th August and was not particularly keen on having to look after only the one, but 
fortunately Jane Best's queen Loobie  kittened 5 days later and readily took my 
little one in with her brood.  Thank you again, Jane and Loobie, for all your assistance.  
I couldn't have managed  without you.

I am still walking on 'cloud nine'.  Leo won the Grand Challenge Certificate and 
then was awarded Best of Breed by Judge Freda Matthias.  He was just so 'laid-back'
and really enjoyed the attention all day, even though he'd been away from home 
since Friday afternoon.  My thanks to Mrs.Matthias for the awards and the lovely
comments and my most grateful thanks to Jane Best, first of all for letting me
have Leo in the first place and secondly for putting us both up for the Friday 
and Saturday  nights.  What a day!!

My 'local' show.  It is so great to be able to leave home and be at the show venue in 30 minutes!  
The show went very smoothly, judging was completed and  awards on pens in record time.  The committee

all the more special.

Leonitara Madame Butterfly (my lovely  Fly) won her third challenge certificate in the Open Class 
and Best of Breed (thank you Mrs. Rodger) so  she is now a CHAMPION.  
She  will now be retired from showing for the summer and hopefully have a litter to Oscar!

I was pleased to be awarded the c.c. with Leonitara Madame Butterfly.  This is her second
challenge certificate.  Fly has  only been shown three times  since her adult debut in 2007.  

It has come to my notice that unscrupulous advertisers are using photographs of my kittens to advertise on 
various dubious 'pets for sale' websites.  If you recognise any of my photographs on these sites and they are not 
linked to my website, I should be grateful if you could inform me as soon as possible as  steps will be taken to
prosecute the offenders.  Thank you.

This was not to be Gemma's 'day'.  I was hoping against all odds that she would win her final qualifying Grand Certificate but she was very 'out of coat' and calling strongly and George Gow awarded the certificate (quite rightly) to Suzanne Griss's lovely colourpointed girl.  Well done, Suzanne.  However, all was not lost, and Gemma was awarded the challenge certificate in her Open Class and went best of breed.  She also won a first in a side class of five.

Here she is relaxing in a very warm show hall!

Saturday 31st May 2008    Durham County Cat Club

I consider this to be my 'local' show as it is only about 20 miles away. It was a very hot day and for this reason the show closed early so the show committee are to be congratulated in getting the rosettes and cards out on the pens in good time.

Oscar was reserve Imperial Grand Champion, he won the Grand Champion class and was best of breed. Alfresca Venus Littlegem was made up to Champion today at the age of 15 months. Her Dad, Gr.Ch. Evawill Mr. Puddington who was in the next pen was best of breed. Well done, George.

Alfresca Venus Littlegem delighted me by winning her second challenge certificate. Both cats behaved impeccably and enjoyed their day out, despite the hall being very warm.

Alfresca Thunder (owned by Angela Buckley) was Reserve Grand Premier and won his open class and premier certificate. Well done, Angela and Thor. Thor is looking magnificent. He is so typically British, large and cuddly!

Cheshire Area Cat Club 10th November 2007

This is not normally a show I would attend, on account of the distance involved and its proximity to The Supreme. However, I had already decided that I was not going to show at The Supreme, so I decided to show at The Cheshire in order to support Sandra Little who had bought Alfresca Silver Xanadoo from me back in early September. I was very glad I did!

AC British Imperial Grand Champion Male
Imperial Grand Certificate awarded to Grand Champion Adcinsh Silver Edwin. Oscar had a wonderful day, winning his first Imperial Grand, his 15 c.c., Best of Breed and first in all his side classes.

My lovely Oscar (Ch. Adcinsh Silver Edwin) won his second Grand Challenge this time under judge John Hansson. Many thanks Mr. Hansson. Oscar also won his Open, C.C. and best of breed.
My kitten Leonitara Madame Butterfly was first in her Open (silver tabby kitten) and awarded the best of breed and ended up with four firsts in her four classes.
Ch. Aljora Silver Superstar, now being shown as a neuter, was awarded her first Premier Certificate and was also best of breed.


All kittens from the Oscar/Scrumptious 'X' litter are now reserved. 
We are hoping that Alfresca Silver Xanadoo will be shown in the future.  He has gone to join Terry and Sandra Little in the Wirral.  The black silver classic tabby Alfresca Silver Xzito is booked to go to Norway next month to live with Ms. Astrid Arntzen.

Manchester Cat Club 5th May, 2007

Ch. Adcinsh Silver Edwin won the Reserve Grand in an entry of five and was first in a side class of 12 and second in another side class of 10. Well done, Oscar.
His handsome son, Alfresca Thunder (Thor) won his open class and BOB and now has four premier certificates and so has earned the title of Premier. He was much admired by the members of the public. He also won first in three side classes. Even though the hall was very warm and the day was long, both cats were very well behaved and, I like to think, enjoyed their day out, playing up to their audience.

Lancashire Cat Club  Saturday, 10th March, 2007

Congratulations are in order to Angela Buckley who showed Alfresca Teefa Tango to perfection and won her 3rd c.c. making her up into CHAMPION. The Judge on this occasion was Mrs. Heavens. Teefa also won 1st and a 2nd in large entry side classes. Alfresca Thunder (Thor) won his Open (Neuter) and b.o.b. and also collected another two 1st and a 2nd in his side classes. I know that Angela was delighted with her day. Well done. 

Coventry and Leicester Cat Club  Saturday, 24th February 2007

Congratulations to Alfresca Teefa Tango and her owner Mrs. Angela Buckley for winning the c.c. under judge Freda Matthias. This is Teefa’s second c.c. and she is not yet 12 months old. She was calling very strongly on the day and on this occasion lost out to the male for best of breed. 
Alfresca Thunder was second in the Open but later in the day picked up two firsts and a second in classes of five and seven. Well done again, Angela. 

My great news is that I have another Japanese Chin dog called Sangria Top Gear (Rolli). It is all thanks to Jane Best who ‘sourced’ Mrs. Jane Thomas’s website (Javalcy) which led to Rolli coming into my household a few weeks ago.  He has settled down well and I’m sure the cats haven’t noticed the difference between him and Suki. Thanks Jane – you are a true friend.
