We've been a bit backwards about updates - promise we will catch up at some point! For now, suffice to say that our precious cats continue to do us proud.

 


6 January 2018 - Russian & Abyssinian Cat Club of Scotland show

Our first show of the year, and what a day we had!! Huge congratulations to all our certificate winners: Rafa, Theo, Vi, Lucy, Sparkle and Xander (a particularly poignant moment for us as Xander won the Olympian to celebrate his 10th birthday, and to honour the memory of his sister, Tracey's precious princess Xaria).

Special thanks to all our kitten owners who
brought their babies along to support the show, and congratulations to Karen and Wolfgang on his breed class win; Fraser and Miranda on Sibby and Leo's Grand and reserve Grand, with Sibby now rejoicing in his new title Grand Premier Dushenka Felix; Laura on Mac's Premier certificate; Heather P on Vanda's Premier certificate and all their side class wins too. I am so proud of all of you x
