I would like to thank Pat and Dorothy for the kind invitation to this one of my local
shows. It was a pleasure to attend and the size and quality of the Burmese entry was
very good- thank you to the exhibitors for making me work hard! Thanks also to my
very competent steward Jan Bradley for looking after me so well.

Class 397 Blue Burmese Kitten
1st and BOB Marriott-Power and Marriott’s Rumba Lavender Blue (27a)
05/04/08: A happy relaxed kitten enjoying her day out. She had a fairly short wedge
with reasonably good width at her cheekbones and tapering to a blunt finish to her
muzzle that I would have preferred slightly shorter. She had good rounding to the top
of her head and reasonably good width between her ears that would have benefitted
from being set slightly lower. Her ears were medium to large in size and were the
correct shape having a broad base and rounded tips. Her eyes were medium in size
and were set well apart and were the correct shape having a rounded bottom line and a
flatter top line slanted towards her nose. They were chartreuse in colour. She had a
nice Burmese expression. In profile her depth of head was good and her ears showed
slight forward tilt. She had a gently rounded brow and a well defined nose break. Her
nose was reasonably short and had a roll off at the tip but finished in the same vertical
plane as her chin that was of medium depth. Her bite was correct. Her body was well
grown and her muscularity was developing. She had a rounded chest and a straight
back and she had elegant legs that ended in neat oval shaped paws. Her tail was the
correct shape having a medium base and tapering to a rounded tip and was long
enough to balance. Her coat was medium in length and soft in texture and was nice
and close. It was a mid-toned Blue shade with some silvering on her face and paws
and she was clear coated. Her condition was good and she was calm and playful
throughout.

Class 399a Lilac Burmese Kitten Male
1st Campbell’s Miciasali Moshe (27c) 16/02/08: A relaxed cheerful chap who was
almost adult. He had a shortish wedge with reasonably good width at his cheekbones
and tapering to a blunt finish to his muzzle. The top of his head was gently rounded
and he had reasonably good width between his ears that I would have preferred set
slightly lower for preference although they improved as he relaxed. His ears were
largish in size and were the correct shape having a broad base and rounded tips. His
eyes were medium in size and set well apart with a rounded bottom line and a
straighter top line angled towards his nose. They were pale yellow in colour. He had a
reasonably good Burmese expression that would have been improved by slightly
larger eye size. In profile his depth of head was good and his ears showed slight
forward tilt. He had a rounded brow and a reasonably well defined nose break. His
nose was slightly long and straight and finished in the same vertical line as his chin
that was slightly shallow. His body was well grown and his muscularity was
developing well. His chest was rounded and his back was straight. His tail was
slightly thick at the base and tapered to a rounded tip and was long enough to balance.
His coat was medium in length and soft and lay well. He was a darker toned lilac
colour with some blue-ish masking on his face and tail. He was clear coated. His
condition was good and he was friendly and inquisitive throughout.

with promising type and really lovely eyes. She had a short wide wedge with good

of her face. Her ears were medium in size and had broad bases and rounded tips. Her

the most self assured. She had a nice short wide wedge with good width at her

probably due to teething today. The top of her head showed good rounding and
excellent width between her ears that were set well apart and continued the shape of

have been adversely affected by her teething.

Extra 3rd Jubb’s Maharani Gabrielle (27) 14/08/07: A petite girl of nice Burmese
type. She had a short wide wedge with good width at her cheekbones and tapering to a
muzzle that was slightly pointed and I would have preferred blunter. The top of her
head showed good rounding and she had good width between her ears that were set
well apart. They were medium in size and had a broad base and rounded tips. Her
eyes were large and lustrous and were set well apart and their shape showed a well
rounded bottom line and a straighter top line that was slightly fuller than required.
They were chartreuse in colour. She had a very nice Burmese expression. In profile
her depth of head was good and her ears showed a slight forward tilt. Her nose break
was well defined and her nose was fairly short and straight. Her chin was medium in
depth and was slightly set back. Her bite was correct. Her body was the smaller side
of medium but was firm and hard with good muscularity. Her back was straight and
her chest was rounded and she had neat oval shaped paws. Her tail was medium at the
base and tapered to a rounded tip and was long enough to balance. Her coat was
medium in length and glossy with a soft texture. She was a warn seal brown and was
clear coated. Her condition was good and she was very calm. She had a similar look
to the previous exhibit although the 3rd placed cat had a blunter muzzle and a better
top line to her eyes.

1st Plaw’s Ch&Pr Rainsong Xabi Alonso (27) 07/03/07: A charming chap of very
nice Burmese type with a super coat. He had a short wide wedge with good width at
his cheekbones and tapering to a short and blunt muzzle. The top of his head was well
rounded and he had good width between his ears that were set well apart. They were
medium to large in size and had a broad base and rounded tips. His eyes were fairly
large and lustrous and I would have preferred them slightly larger for preference.
They were set well apart and had a well defined shape with a rounded bottom line and
a straighter top line angled towards his nose. They were chartreuse in colour and he
had a very good Burmese expression. In profile the depth of his skull was good and
his ears showed slight forward tilt. His brow was rounded and he had a reasonably
well defined nose break. His nose was short and straight and finished in the same
vertical plane as his chin that was medium in depth. His bite was correct. His body
was well grown and he had good muscularity and he had elegant legs and neat oval
shaped paws. His tail was medium in thickness at the base and tapered top a rounded
top and was long enough to balance. He had an excellent coat being short and close
lying and a rich seal brown colour. He was clear coated. His condition was good and
he handled well.

1st Crow and Goss’s GrPr Kagura Gloriana (27) 25/04/99: What a charming girl.
Super type only bettered by her lovely temperament! She had a super short wide
wedge with very good width at her cheek bones and tapering to a short and blunt
muzzle. She had excellent rounding to the top of her head and good width between
her ears that I would have liked set a little lower for perfection. Her ears were on the
smaller side of medium and a correct shape with a broad base and rounded tips. Her
eyes were a super feature being large and lustrous and set well apart and had a well
defined shape with a well rounded bottom line and a straighter top line angled towards
her nose. She had a lovely Burmese expression. In profile her depth of skull was very
good and her ears showed slight forward tilt. Her brow was rounded and her nose
break was very well defined. Her nose was short and straight and finished in the same
vertical plane as her chin that was lovely and deep. Her bite was correct although
teeth were missing. Her body was the petite side of medium and of lovely weight and
was firm and muscular. She had a rounded chest and a straight back. Her tail was
medium thick at the base and tapered to a rounded tip and was long enough to balance.
Her coat was medium in length and lay well. It was a rich seal brown and she had a
few white hairs on her upper shoulders. She was clear coated. Her condition was good
and she had a very loving temperament.
