On Saturday we travelled down to Reading to enter the Croydon Cat Club & Southern Counties Cat Club Shows. This was to obtain show points/merits for the Chartreux to become recognised by the GCCF so we can apply for Championship Status.
Each cat needs 4 merits to qualify – only 2 can be gained as a kitten (up to 9 months) and all 4 merits must be from different judges.
We had a lovely time and Nova was as good as gold :)… this is what we came away with:
- 2 x Merits in the Chartreux Assessment Kitten classes (we are given a hand-written Judge’s Assessment, but it was like trying to read a doctors prescription! They do get written up and placed on the GCCF website, so I will publish later)
- 2 x Best of Breeds
- 1st place – A.C British Kitten Bred by Exhibitor
- 1st place – A.C British Limit Kitten
- 1st place – A.C British Novice Kitten
- 4th place – A.C British Visitors Kitten
