There were cats galore at the Exotic Cat Society’s 19th annual Wisbech show held at Tydd St Giles Community Centreon Saturday.

The event attracted felines from across the UK with a total of 66 entries in the various classes which included household pets as well as the pedigrees.

British short haired cats were also on show, although they were not competing.

Winners were: Exotic adult: UK Grand Champion Sheerbliss Arabella owned by Christine Wall of Manchester; Best Opposite Sex Adult: Champion Supurrnova Pipenslippers owned by Wisbech Society President Norah Gardener.

Best in show Persian: Farallon White Obsession owned by Karen Holloway of Worcester; Best Opposite Sex Persian: Grand Champion Advillo Doodleshoes owned by Norma Brown.

Best kitten: Crazipuss Honky Tonk owned by Pauline Gribben; Best opposite sex kitten: Exotiquesamour Cosette also owned by Pauline Gribben.

Best of show: Windymeadow White Stripes owned by Karen Hill; Best of Show Kitten: Cloverhill Archvillain owned by Pam Marylebone of Leicester.

Best in Neuter: Pennydown Garcia owned by Lorraine Warland; Best of Show: Grand Champion and Gran Premier Zendique Xmarks Thesport owned by Carol Tonks of St ives.

Best in show non-pedigree: Biscuit owned by Linda Hutchinson of Little Downham; Best overall non-pedigree kitten: Purdy owned by Rosemary Roberts of Chatteris.

Barbara McEwen, who together with husband Stuart was the show’s manager, said the number of people visiting the show was slightly down on previous years, but she said that was likely due to Saturday’s appallingly wet and windy weather.

Next year’s show will be on January 10 at the same venue.
