Event:
Who doesn't love a British shorthair cat?
Cats - There are quite a few different types of cats apart from your ordinary "moggy", and of all the different ones, the British Shorthair Cat is a very endearing breed!



These cats are soft, yet muscular and generally have an easy going nature. The British Shorthair has a sturdy (not often fat) body with a broad, full chest, short, strong legs, and a short, thick tail that tapers to a rounded tip. They generally have a round head with a short nose, chubby cheeks and round eyes, all of which combine to almost give them a "smiling" look!

Blue is the most popular colour for British Shorthairs, although other colours include white, black, cream, various tabby patterns, tortoiseshell, calico and colour plus white - bi-colour.



This breed often gets along well with dogs, and although not generally a lap cat, they like to be near you.

The British Shorthair Cats and The British Shorthair Cat Club is a Western Australian Cat Club created to promote the breed and hold cat shows, and they are about to have their next show!

The BSCC invite you to join them at their 2018 Fundraising Show. It is the first show of the 2018 show calendar and it's a unique show for several reasons, but the biggest one is that there will only be one ring.



The club had difficulty finding a judge for one of the sections, so rather than cancel the show, they decided to just hold the show anyway. It will still be lots of fun with raffles and games, plus a silent auction.

At the event, there will be MLM Catering and of course, they are well known for their blueberry pancakes which will once again be on the menu. Some of the sponsors include OzPet, Royal Canin and Departure Pets. For this show, to keep the entry fee so low, they are using recycled rosettes and trophies, so there will be a lot of different colours, shapes and sizes.

To enter your cat, the entry fee is only $12 per exhibit with $1 from every entry going towards the BSCC Health Fund for research into health issues affecting the British Shorthair Breed.

There will be a "Mystery Ring Perpetual Trophy", which is a special bonus ring for the breed with the most exhibits entered in the show. Here you will be able to see all the different breeds from Siberians to Sphynx and many more.

There will also be some very cute and irresistible kittens and the show is open to the public from 10.30 am through to around 2.00 pm.



This particular show is being held as a tribute to Lucy Nikiforos, who was a breeder of these beautiful cats.

It will be held at the Cyril Jackson recreation Centre, Fisher Street, Bassendean, and you can come by to see the cats after 9.30 am, when entry will be by gold coin donation.
