Re: Rover unlurking. :grin:


Thanks.

He likes the shows, we don't do many, but his brother nicks first place. Lovely put together little cat and plays the oozing-charm card to perfection. Rover aims for the suave laid-back, which is a change from his helter-skelter approach to life at home. His breeders did say that though Rover is show quality, his brother would grow into a judge-stunner. Showing wasn't the reason I bought him, so I'm well chuffed he does so well and likes the occasional outing. Besides, after that show of belonging he did on my first visit, how could I pick any other kitten in the world?

Re: Rover unlurking. :grin:


I'm twolegger1, as he saw me first.

We did the Shorthair Cat Club show in Glenrothes yesterday. Another second in the open, but a first-of-six in a side class and another two seconds and thirds in well-filled sides, so I just need to time my showing to the one time that the two better cats are not there. ^-^ Or that the judge that likes him better is judging the open, of course. He was a bit unsettled ths time around. I think because we arrived when the setting-up was in full swing so there was no walk when we got there and no peace to sette down in his cage before the crowds arrived. We'll get there early again next time. Enough time for a nice 15 minute investigation of the bushes around the car-park before the show opens and one of the first in.

Rover's Mum died last week. Cancer. I didn't know you well, grand and gracious lady, but you were dear to my heart and the reason I have my Rover.

Rover will be an uncle come summer-time. His sister is going to have her first litter. I feel.... granmotherly.

Re: Rover unlurking. :grin:


I would gladly ride the two-and-a-half hours to catsit. Even though my favourite two cats of theirs are no more, the rest of the feline family is great and I'm sure the kittens will turn out to be the usual (maybe literally) bundles of pure joy. Couldn't guarantee I wouldn't "accidentally" pack one or two when leaving, though.
