As this is our first time showing in TICA, we've entered Putra (Championship), Boboy (HHP) and three kittens (Shah, Tuksido and Muezza) just to see where our cats stand.

Despite some initial and minor set backs, the event ran quite smoothly. Ribbons and rosettes were awarded to all top 10 cats/kittens in respective category ie championship, alters, kittens, HHP and HHP kittens. And the top 5 cats for each category will be scored for TICA and Fabulous Feline Awards.

We are also pleased to note that some of the cat lovers/fanciers turned up to give morale support to the exhibitors. Thank you Mastura and Zaki, Aida and Shafiq, Aiko and Gavin, Fui Yau, Jimmy, Nancy and the rest of the Felis Wonder team and all the others whose names I do not know or cannot remember. We appreciate your support and hope that you will join us at the next show to be held on 24 June 2012.

So how did the Lagenda team do?

Arena Lagenda Putra Coon, Open Category

Putra finalled in seven out of eight rings, scoring 8, 8, 0, 6, 2, 7, 5 and 10. He was the highest scoring longhair cat in Ring 5, thanks to Nancy Parkinson. This is more than what we expected considering the quality of the other cats on show.

Legendary Boboy, HHP Category

For this show, we had changed his name slightly to reflect that he is from the Lagenda team as we could not place the cattery name as the prefix but Boboy did very well in his first foray in TICA. He finalled in all rings and scored no 2, 3, 3, 1, 1, 6, 4 and 1. The best news was he came home with the Best HHP trophy plus a lot of goodies which actually covered his entrance fees and then some! Besides the trophy, we got a set of Chris Christensen's products (Clean Start, Day to Day, White on White, Show off, Silk Spirits and a 27mm Purple Fusion GroomGrip Pocket Pin Brush), two packs of cat litter and a bottle of supplement. Sara was over the moon with the CC products!

Lagenda Shah Putra, Kitten Category
Shah Putra did not let us down. He finalled in most rings except for Rings 3 and 6. He scored no. 3, 2, 0, 2, 2, 0, 10 and 5. Mummy could not stop smiling from happiness and is very proud of you as well baby.

Lagenda Tuksido Putra, Kitten Category
Tuksido was my wildcard, we were not sure whether he will make the finals or not. But he did not disappoint and gave a good run scoring at seven out of eight rings : 5, 6, 1, 6, 1, 4, 1, 0. He was also crowned overall Reserve in Show for the Kitten Category. Mummy is very happy, he also came home with lots of goodies and like Boboy, his wins has already paid for his entrance fee. The only CC product he did not get was the comb and the Silk Spirit.

Lagenda Muezza Putra, Kitten Category
Muezza surpassed our expectations. He finalled in all 8 rings, scoring no 1, 1, 2, 1, 6, 1, 3 and 1. He lost out to Tuksido in 3 rings but came home with the Best Kitten in Show! It was really, really, really beyond our expectation. There were other beautiful kittens on show but somehow, the judges picked him as the best, thank you very much!

Lagenda Mega Ciku Jr of Ciku Kiwi, Kitten Category
The Ciku-Kiwis also entered Mega in the show and finalled in 7 out of the 8 rings scoring no. 9, 4, 8, 5, 9, 7, 9 and 0. Great show girl!

Overall, I am very happy with the Lagenda team. We came home with more than we expected and boy, it feels great!!! I still have not recovered from Muezza's win at the FIFe show last month and now he has managed to get the Best Kitten award followed by Tuksido! I am really, really proud of my first litter!

Thanks to Fabulous Felines and their team for organising this event and thanks to the judges for choosing our cats and above all, thanks to my two (long suffering) daughters for assisting me in the show. Five cats and eight rings are too much for one person :)
