Another Year of Fabulous Felines...Fun...Friendships
Wow. That's all I can say about our 2010 Annual Awards
Banquet and Cat Show that we just "closed down"
the past show season with a lot of panache and excitement..oh,
and of course FABULOUS FELINES, FUN AND FRIENDSHIPS.
Not only was Santa Clara, CA a great place to hold it,
but we sure put TICA on their map so to speak. If you got
a chance to go, did you see the buses running around town
with the BIG TICA advertisements? Thank you to Helmi Flick
for allowing us to use her fabulous photos. If you didn't
see one or didn't get to go, here's one of the advertisements
(not on a bus...sorry! I didn't get my camera out in
time to snap a shot).
Cat lovers enjoyed demos of cat clicker training by The
Cat Coach, Certified Cat Behavior Consultant Marilyn Krieger,
who - along with Dr. Yee - answered feline veterinary and
behavioral questions. We even had a great Savannah-Rama
(I swear there were more people there than at the rings!)
and some of the winners at the "fun ring" were:
Congrats to our Savannah winners!
- Most Energetic - Kirembo Barack owned by Brigitte
- Biggest Cat Clown - Simon owned by Tricia Perkins
- Savannah-Rama King - SavannahIsland Trouble owned
by Debby Maraspini
- Savannah-Rama Queen - CactusRun Ruby of SpottedLove
owned by Leonard Dieguez
We even had the Guinness World Book of Records on hand to
see if they could find a new Tallest Cat in the hundreds
of felines at the show!
The record was broken at the show and the new record is
17.5 inches from paw to shoulder, held by SavannahIsland
Trouble, a Savannah neutered male owned and bred by Debby
But most importantly, the Award Banquet held that weekend
was why we really were all there! Celebrate we did as we
announced Allbreed Judge Aline Noel-Garel as Judge of the
Year (a fine lady to do it!) and we bestowed the title of
International Winners and Best of the Best on our cat, kitten,
alter, household pet and household pet kitten of the 2009-2010
It's always hard work to put on an Annual, and thank
you so much to Jazzy Cats for putting your heart and soul
into a fantastic event. While we can look back on our fun
and say "wow" ... now we need to look ahead because
in another twelve months, we'll do it all over again...the
land of our forefathers and the City of Brotherly Love,
gorgeous Philadelphia Pennsylvania!
Because we had so much to tell, this issue is dedicated
to our winners for 2009-2010!
Thank you for a great 2009-2010 season!
