Show news.

When our Siberian boy Saladin was born with his 2 brothers, we had to decide which one of them to keep as we decided to retire Sevastian and the boy would have to take over from his dad. Saladin is on the left.

We feel we did make the right choice with this boy and he has the best temperament just like his dad and mum Star. As he grew we did begin to wonder if we had kept the right one, he was tall and thin . He had got large boning but was an ugly duckling. Hence we never showed him as a kitten.
Then as if by magic he started to fill out and grow into the handsome boy he is, still very lovable and such a sweetie with everyone.
His first show he was so overwhelmed by it all he just wanted to hide. The second show he was a bit better but he did get a final which made him a champion.
This is when we decided he would have to go the show school. We had a paste table and we put together a small stand to go on the table and so the schooling began.
This went on every day and he got very good and showing himself off.
He then went to his third show and all though he was good his coat wasn't as good as it could have been. He still managed 1 final.
We decided to take him to his forth show which was the last show of the year. We didn't expect to much from this show as we knew there would be a lot of cats from all over Europe trying to gain more wins and points at the end of the TICA show season. There were International and world winners, Plus a large number of supreme champions. All we were hoping  for was the experience for him. He was very laid back and wasn't so bothered about the noise.
The show over two days and had eight rings on each day, starting on the Saturday. He received 6 best of breeds on the Saturday with 3 finals. We were over the moon and really amazed. On Sunday he managed 5 best of breeds and another 3 finals.
Wow we were blown away. 6 finals and now he has gone from a Champion to a Double Grand Champion in one show.

 On to the next show. We will keep you posted.
