1 SHOW: SCOTTISH CAT CLUB DATE: 2 nd December 2017 JUDGE: Mrs. Rosemary Fisher My thanks to the Club for inviting me to judge at the joint Scottish shows. It was evident that Heather & Richard have built up a formidable network of helpers among the Scottish contingent of the Cat Fancy, and it was great to see so many joining in to help keep things moving along smoothly. Thank you to my steward, Ron Hutchinson, for your help and good company during a busy day. AV OLYMPIAN IMP GR CH FEMALE OLY Wilshaw s IMP GR CH Rossikhan Alter Ego Chocolate Burmese I love this girl s head type. She has a short blunt wedge, and a slightly rounded brow, and there is good width and depth to her skull. Her ears are slightly more than medium sized, but are broad based and well set with a slight forward tilt. Superb large eyes, set well apart, chartreuse in colour and with a wonderful expression that immediately catches your eye. In profile she has a distinct break and straight nose, her chin is firm and her bite level. Medium neck leading to a compact body that is nicely muscled and a good weight. Slender legs with neat oval paws. Straight tail of proportionate length tapering to a rounded tip. Her coat is short and close coat with a satin-like texture, the colour is a warm milk chocolate, even in tone, slightly darker on her face, ears and tail, free of barring, slightly lighter on her underparts. Her overall condition was excellent and she was relaxed and showed herself well. I understand her ticket today makes her up to a Bronze Olympian congratulations to her owner/breeder. RES OLY Lincoln s OB IMP GR CH Linczozo Cat s Pyjamas Usual Abyssinian Beautiful 5 year-old girl of super type.

In profile she has a good break, firm chin and level bite, although the incisors are a little untidy. Elegant arching neck leading to a firm muscular body of medium size. Slender legs and small oval feet. Her tail is thick at the base and tapers to the tip. Her coat is close-lying, with pleasing density. Good facial markings, cream to her lips and lighter beneath her chin. Lovely clear even black ticking on a bright apricot base, black spine line extending along her tail to a black tip.
