MIECC RC International Cat Show

The MIECC RC International Cat Show by the Asia Pacific Cat Club was held at the MINES on 3 December 2011. There was a total of 139 entries consisting of 72 entries in the long hair category, 39 in the short hair category and 28 household pets. Maine coons were the top entries, with a total of 27 coonies showing their stuff, 9 in the kitten class, 13 in the open/championship class, 2 in the Grand Champion class and 3 in the Premier class. Judges were Yayoi Satoh (Japan), Cheryle Pollack (Australia), Wayne Trevalthan (USA), Edward Maeda (Japan), Chloe Chung (Hong Kong), Allan Raymond (Australia) and Theresa Imboden (Australia).

We entered all three of our boys but Dusky could not make it as he had scratched and hurt his forehead badly. This is the second time we entered a CFA show but the first time we understand the judging and award system. Hence it was a rather exciting time for us, trying out our new knowledge (thanks to Jimmy and Adilah) re counting the points for CH and GC.

Of course Putra won first place and best of colour in his colour class in all six rings but the surprise of the day was when Boboy managed to win top 5 in all six rings. We happily collected his winnings and because we were tired, we happily went home, not realising that he had also won the title of Highest Scoring HHP! WOW WOW WOW! That was way, way, WAY beyond our expectations!

Happiness is receiving something unexpected.....

Handsome Daichi, he has grown soooo much, his papa says he is fat. You are not fat, just a bit more cuddly and Aunty still loves you. :)
Boboy being judged by Allan Raymond. We nearly missed being judged as we did not hear the first announcement and only made it just before the judge reached his cage! Phew!
But he was judged worthy of 2nd place in this ring
Now it Putuwawa's turn. Hmmmmmm, looks like crouching chicken.... ha ha ha, poor baby
Horray, Mr Timid got first place and best of colour in his colour class. NM baby, we will try to do better next year.

Ouch, there's too many photos to choose from! Anyway, here's the link for your viewing pleasure. Suffice to say, it was a good day for all of us, and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We hope to join other shows as well in future, just for the experience and more on catching up with old friends and making new friends.
