PREFIX BRACE
A splendid entry in this breeders class and a real pleasure to judge. 1 MERCIER-SAUNDERS’S SPARKLESPOTS PRINCE SUNSET 76 20 M 15.2.09 SPARKLESPOTS BLOSSOM 76b20 F 15.2.09 This pair of kittens really sparkled and lived up to their prefix name. The boy has a stunning marble pattern in black and brown against a rufus ground colour to his superb textured coat. He has a good head although the chin is slightly shallow and is well balanced with proportionate body and legs. The tail is just slightly long and fine. His sister has a lovely textured pale creamy coat with a pale brown marbled pattern and clear facial markings. Good head with bright blue eyes, just a bit shallow on the chin. They both had lovely temperaments and were in tip top condition. Congratulations to their breeder/owners. 2 GIRAUDY’S GIRADELLE CHEETARO 76 30 M 3.3.09 GIRADELLE CHARISMA 76 30 F 3.3.09 This pair of kittens ran the winners very close but I definitely had a preference for the boy of these litter mates. An excellent overall kitten with excellent brown and black spotting against a pale, but warm toned rufus ground colour. Only four months of age and looking the part with a good head of very good breadth. His sister needs to develop a little more breadth to her head and grow into her ears but she had the most stunning spotting to her coat with spots right down to the end of her toes. Babies with lovely temperaments and lots of time to fulfil their early promise. Congratulations they did you proud.
