NORWEGIAN FOREST ADULT FEMALE
1CC & BOB STEWARTS CHOAS KISS (67 22) (4.12.08) Sweet Norwegian female who is just over a year in age. Very good triangular head, just a little pinched at present. She is a lovely girl but unfortunately her ears are really one size too small for her head and this just throws off the balance for me. Almost straight profile. Firm chin and level bite.

1 & BOB TAYLORS BRIZLINCOAT BLU CHANTERELL (63c) (11.9.09) Delightful kitten with an exquisite expression and a wonderfully outgoing purrsonality.

At the moment she is more tipped than ticked but I am sure this will develop in time. Lovely soft blue coat colouring with lovely warmth to her oatmeal undercoat. Good complete blue paws and heels and a very slight necklace which is broken. Really delightful kitten who stole my heart with her temperament and expression and was my Judges favourite today. A very promising kitten, can’t wait to see how she develops.
2 WATTS EMANAN CHOCOLATE SENSATION (63b) (29.7.09) Another very lovely Somali kitten who was most unlucky to come up against my winner today. She is just a little older and I didn’t feel she had as balanced a head at present. However her ticking and colouring is exceptional especially for her age. Slightly longer wedge at present with a very slight pinch to her muzzle, lovely shallow indentations apparent to her muzzle and she just needs time for the balance to return. Lovely profile with very slight break. Firm chin and level bite. Beautiful large almond eyes, very expressive and set obliquely. Eye make-up coming in nicely. Large ears, well set and well pricked. Good breadth at base and very well furnished. Good long body. Firm and lithe and very well boned. With excellent substance for her age. Nicely tapered tail, which could be a fraction longer.

Good dark chocolate heels and paws. Very feint but broken necklace. Soft and fine coat with texture well developed for her age. Length coming along nicely. Lovely young lady who was a little overawed by the day’s proceedings. I was pleased to see her much more relaxed in the afternoon. Another one to watch!

I was sorry to withhold the PC today but when we judged her her eyes were extremely round and bold and her eye colouring in also now quite poor, very pale grey with greeny tinges. Other than this she is a lovely girl and later in the day when I spoke to her owner, she had relaxed and her eyes did look a better shape. Strong skull with broad head, lovely full cheeks and rounded muzzle. Slight dip to profile with a little bump. Medium ears spaced wide apart. Slightly weak chin and level bite.

I would like to thank Celia and the Supreme committee for their kind invitation to judge this year. It is always an honour to participate in this show.

Thank you to the exhibitors for bringing and presenting their beautiful cats so well. Thank you to my team of stewards who did a sterling job and kept me on the straight and narrow. My team was headed by Andrea Dean who capably organised me, Elizabeth Shepherd and Charlie her husband. I was also lucky enough to judge on the special kitten classes at lunch-time. This was great fun and I was pleased to see so many children participating with their kittens. My winner was a beautiful blue eyed snow marbled Bengal with a super glistening coat.

3rd October 2009

 

I would like to thank Carol, Ron and the committee for inviting me today. It is shame that the entry was down this year but that in no way affected the quality of the cats on exhibition. We had some very beautiful entries today. I was very pleased to be asked to choose the Best In Show SLH Adult which was a very strong category with a number of contenders; but my final choice Gr Ch Mckittycreek Aurora was looking fabulous today and was a worthy winner. I was very pleased to see her later awarded Overall SLH BIS exhibit. Well done to her owner. Thank you very much to Marilynn Skulski who came especially to steward for me and did a great job with the cats as always.

MAINE COON SILVER SERIES KITTEN
1st & BOB Withheld 2 MALONES KASSARO SMOKEYMIST (64 41s) (26.04.09) I was sorry to have to withhold on this kitten but unfortunately I was concerned about his eye shape and set and his profile and these things combined were too much for me to award the 1st and BOB today. His eye shape is too oblique and also set too obliquely to be correct for the SOP. In addition to this his pupils react differently to the light, the left opens and closes more slowly than the right. This is not a squint but was confirmed by the duty vet on the day, and unfortunately it does affect his overall expression. His profile was curved but became quite bulbous and rounded and dropped off towards the tip. Quite long and narrow head with reasonable breadth to his muzzle. Very good chin and level bite.

Lovely large green eyes. Oval in shape and very well set obliquely. Large ears which are too wide set on her head and quite flared in positioning. Very good long body with a very good body weight and substance and excellent boning. Long limbs and strong paws. Long well furnished tail. Excellent coat quality and texture and definite double coat. Just lacking in coat length and ruff at present but for the time of year it’s not bad and she is beautifully prepared. Sweet girl with a lovely temperament I was very pleased to give her BIS female Adult later in the day. Well done to her owner/breeders.

AC BREEDERS ADULT
1 COMERS ZELANDONII MITHRANDIR (67 31a) (15.04.08) Handsome young NFC lad who I have judged quite a number of times. I am so pleased with how he behaved today he has finally learned some manners!! Excellent NFC type and look and just over a year in age. Excellent triangular shaped head with a nicely rounded forehead. Almost straight profile and firm chin. Level bite. Lovely oval eyes, set obliquely. Large ears, nicely tapered but a fraction wide set. Good coat quality and texture a little soft at present but that is partly due to his colouring, definite harsher texture to his guard hairs and obvious undercoat. Well prepared and with a medium ruff and shirtfront, needs a bit more time to grow his coat. Long well furnished tail. Very long body with strong boning and very good substance. Strong limbs and large paws. Lovely lad who did himself proud today, I was so pleased to give him BIS male and to see him go onto be Best Adult in Show. Well done to his owner/breeder.
2 FISHLOCK-LOMAX ADATELO REINE LA CHATEAU (67 31gt) (15.04.08) Lovely young female of excellent NFC type and with a lovely elegant look. I judged this girl just a couple of weeks ago and my report is unchanged. However, I must compliment her owners on the excellent job that they had done with her coat today. It was a shame that she was also a bit overawed today and refused to hold her ears up, which did spoil her overall look. Excellent equilateral triangle to her head. Almost straight profile. Slightly weak chin, but level bite. Very large ears, very well set, open and high on her head and very well furnished and with excellent ear tufts. Large oval eyes, with a super oblique setting. Long body with good body weight and boning, strong limbs and large paws. She is quite long and lean at present but still well covered. Very attractive patched tortie tabby coat pattern. Excellent coat quality and texture, length developing nicely but still lacking a ruff and any undercoat at present. Long well furnished tail. Although she is registered at a Blue tortie and white I do think she is actually a patched silver tortie tabby. Well presented and very sweet girl.

LONDON CAT CLUB SHOW
13th June 2009

 

I would like to thank Maria and the committee for inviting me today. It was another busy day, with some lovely cats. Thank you for the shortbread, my favourite, it was much appreciated. Thank you also to Marilynn Skulski who came along especially to steward for me. She did a great job and kept me on the straight and narrow really well. Thank you for your support Marilynn.

RED, CREAM & TORTIE POINT BIRMAN ADULT MALE
1 CC Withheld. SIMMONDS CH MUNKCHIP TOBIAS (13c5) (16.02.08) Massive and substantial young lad who was not really in show condition today. I was really sorry to withhold the CC today but a number of factors determined this. He is currently at a very difficult stage of his development and his head is really not in balance with his body added to that he is extremely short of coat. This lead to his head looking very unbalanced today and I felt that currently his profile is too straight and not compliant with that required by the standard of points. Additionally he does not have any ruff as at present and his ears are very tall this lead to his eye set looking a little oblique. Finally, he is obviously a working lad and although he had been bathed and his owner had worked hard on the coat he had, he did have a bald patch on one side. All of that said I do think that most of the above is either seasonal or developmental and that he will develop into a very nice boy. He does have excellent body weight and substance and boning and very good markings. Good gloves, a little generous and the right goes to the stopper pad but not beyond. Slightly uneven socks. Medium length gauntlets, good shape and nicely full, the right is slightly lower than the left. Fabulous temperament.
2 FENWICK-RAVEN AMISTI FOR YOUR EYES ONLY (13c5) (7.9.08) Lovely young Birman, the baby of the class and shown in lovely condition. Very good Birman type, unfortunately he has a runner on the back of his right glove which does run past the stopper pad. Strong skull, broad head, with full cheeks and nicely rounded muzzle. Good chin and level bite. Almost round eyes with very good eye colour, very well set with a lovely expression. Slight dip in profile with a bump. Good red points colouring. Ears a little tall at present. Long body, quite strong boning and with good body weight and substance. Strong legs and paws. Very low and scalloped gloves, both extend to the stopper pad at the back but the right does run past. Even socks and long gauntlets, almost to the hocks, nice full shape. Very pale coat, with no shading, soft and silky with a good medium length and ruff. A little cross today.
3 GENTRYS PURINDOORS WATCHTHISSPACE (13c5) (07.05.08) Lovely young lad of very good Birman type, unfortunately his markings are extremely low at the front and he does not have acceptable gauntlets. Strong skull with a broad head and full cheeks, nicely rounded muzzle. Slight dip in profile with a little bump. Even bite. Slightly weak chin. Medium long soft and silky coat which would have benefited from more preparation, he was quite greasy behind the ears and had some stud tail too. Slightly short tail. Very good body weight and substance with thick set limbs and strong paws. Very sweet lad with a lovely temperament.

Strong skull, quite broad head with reasonable cheek and slightly narrow muzzle. At present he is overall a little narrow and long but I am sure this will develop in time as he grows into his head!

21st March 2009


I would like to thank Shelagh, Kit and the committee for their kind invitation today. It was a little daunting as I have judged so few Somali’s up till now; but I felt it was a really useful and instructive day and I gained a lot of confidence from seeing so many beautiful Somali’s in so many different colours. I hope that I have done the cats justice in my write ups but would like to thank the BAC and Somali exhibitors who have been so supportive and willing to offer information and advice. Thank you to Nicky Butler, who came along especially to steward for me we had a very busy day with he SLH cats too but she did a fantastic job, keeping me focused on the job in hand. I look forward to working together again soon.

NORWEGIAN FOREST CAT CLUB SHOW
21st February 2009

 

I would like to thank Anne, Brian and the committee for inviting me today; this is one of my favourite shows of the year. The standard of the NFC’s on exhibition today was I think the highest it has ever been and it was a pleasure to participate in the day. I was particularly pleased to be asked to judge the Overall Best in Show and must thank all the exhibitors for providing me with such a fantastic line up, which would rival those abroad. My Best in Show cat was a superb young lad Noynarock Zach, very well done to his owner breeder Linda Grant. Thank you to Barbara Prowse who kindly came along to steward for me today, it was an enjoyable and interesting day together, many thanks Barbara.

AC GRAND CHAMPION MALE
1 IMP GR CC Withheld HEALINGS GR CH LANDSKER YMER (TICA GR CH) (67 31ts) (14.5.06) I was sorry to withhold the Imperial certificate today but I just felt that this lad did not have the quality of type required for this ultimate title, although he has a good clean triangular shaped head he does have quite deep set eyes and quite low set and flared ears. I also felt that his coat quality today did not really conform to the standard. He was beautifully prepared but his coat was really too soft and silky for a correct Norwegian coat and lacked the harshness of texture and the waterproof elements required. Slightly weak chin and level bite. Long body with good body weight but I would like to see more strength of boning considering his age. Silver tabby coat pattern with a high expression of white. Slightly short tail. Lovely sweet lad with a super temperament.

Good triangular head with a rounded forehead. Almost straight profile and slightly weak chin. She has a slightly spread front portion to her nasal profile, which spoils her elegance of type. Level bite. Large oval eyes which are slightly deep set but oblique. Large ears, but she would not hold them up for us and they were very bonneted in position and looked to be slightly wide set.

Excellent long body with super boning and conformation. Excellent body weight. Strong limbs and large paws. Typical NFC stance. Red tabby coat pattern.

FEMALE
1 PC Withheld LINDGRENS JHARDUFAE XSITA FIROZA (67 31at) (13.4.04) Most unusual blue tabby and white coat pattern which was prepared to the last hair. It was a shame that Firoza was so nervous as she just curled up like a hedgehog and didn’t want to be seen. She has a very gentle nature, but didn’t like the show scene. I was sorry to have to withhold the PC today but unfortunately although she has a beautiful coat it is not the correct texture or quality for the breed and I don’t think it would be self maintaining in the wild! She is quite lightweight but does have nice strong boning and body length. She has a good triangular shaped head but her profile has a definite change of direction in it. Reasonably large ears but she wasn't going to put them up for us. Tail a little short. Sweet girl.

I would like to thank Pat and Sarah for inviting me today. I was a last minute addition to fill in for Sally Tokens who has unfortunately broken her ankle; I do hope that the exhibitors were not too disappointed not to have Sally judging their Birmans today and I hope that Sally is soon up and about.

Slightly receding chin and very slightly overshot bite. Lovely dip to profile. Medium ears set well apart. Lovely blue grey points markings with slightly paler legs. Very good long body with very good body weight and substance for his age with excellent boning. Strong limbs and large paws. Very god coat quality, soft and silky and very well developed for his age. Good medium length coat of a lovely pale colour with a medium ruff and shirtfront and just very slight shading to his shoulders and back. Good even gloves and socks. Very good medium length gauntlets, super full shape and both finish at just a slight angle. Nicely matched. Slightly short but bushy tail. Lovely temperament, a very sweet lad who just purred all the time he was out of the pen.
2 GARDINORS ATAKAD AIMIN HIGH (13c2) (01.07.08) Young Birman kitten of just over 6 months of age and with nice Birman type. Strong skull with a good broad head and reasonably full cheeks but just needs more fullness and roundness in the muzzle to develop. Almost round eyes of a good blue, well set but quite brindled around the eyes and to the muzzle at present. Good slight dip to profile with a little bump. Slightly weak chin and slightly overshot bite. Ears a little tall at present but nicely set apart on the head. Very good boning and with reasonable body weight for his age.

RED, CREAM AND TORTIE POINT BIRMAN KITTEN FEMALE
1 & BOB WOODHEADS MUSRAFY LACEY (13c8) (07.05.08) Lovely Birman kitten of excellent type, almost 8 months of age. Strong skull, broad head with full cheeks and lovely rounded muzzle. Very expressive, almost round eyes, very good blue eye colour. Very well set. Medium ears, still just a little tall. Slightly receding chin but level bite. Slight dip to profile with a little bump. Very pronounced white whisker pads at present, which I suspect is brindling, she is also very brindled around the eyes and at present, this does detract a little, making her look a little unbalanced. Good body weight and substance for her age with strong limbs and paws. Low scalloped gloves, white extending at the back on the right glove but not to the stopper pad. Even socks. Medium long gauntlets almost matched and even and nicely tapered. Very pale, soft and silky coat, length still needs time to develop but has no shading at all. Slightly short bushy tail. Lovely blue tortie markings extending to all points. Lovely temperament, very promising kitten.
2 ENSORS KITTAH ARTEMIS (13c6) (10.08.08) Another lovely type kitten of almost 5 months of age. Such a shame that she does not have all the required tortie colour present on all her points. At present she is missing any seal from both front legs and one hind leg. Lovely mottled markings to her mask and ears. Very harmonious kitten, with a broad head, full cheeks and lovely rounded muzzle, she just needs a little more time to fill out. Ears a little tall at present. Almost round eyes, slightly pale eye colour, especially at rims, very well set and super expressive. Slight dip to profile with a little bump. Slightly weak chin and almost level bite.

3 BROWNS DALTEEMA FANTASIA (13c10) (03.06.08) Another lovely type kitten, who needs time for her colouring to develop and unfortunately today I could not see any lilac on her front legs or her tail, we did take her to the white light, but still no lilac appeared. The lighting in the hall did not help but she has more caramel than lilac tones at present. Lilac tortie is a very slow developing colour and this kitten is only just 7 months old, so hopefully the colours will develop in time. Strong skull with a broad head, reasonably full cheeks and slightly narrow muzzle. Ears a little tall at present. Almost round eyes, with slightly pale blue eye colour, well set. Slight dip in profile. Slightly weak chin and level bite. Grey and pink nose leather with lilac and cream very apparent on her mask and ears.

Very sweet girl with a lovely temperament.
