Going in to Winter

We've got the sheep, dogs and horses all tucked in for Winter. Of course we don't have to worry about the cats, as all of our cats are raised indoors in heated suites. No outdoor cages for our girls and guys. Likewise our Traditional, only, bloodlines where no outcrossing has been done to other breeds to get non traditional colors.
Back from Tukwilla where Burgundy, our kitten did very well and getting ready for the new Kelowna show in October. We had a lot of discussion at the show regarding the TICA Annual which is to be held in Seattle in 2013. LOTS of planning to do. I will be hitting everyone up to buy the fabulous T shirts being sold for fund raising. Had a blast with my Grandson Jaden and Colby is gearing up for the next Tukwilla show on Oct. 16. The hunt is on for the "perfect" household pet kitten for them to show.
We are preparing for our Nov. 27 and 28 show in Victoria and welcome anyone who wants to volunteer to help at the show. We can always use more hands. Where else can you get cake and Starbucks coffee for the price of admission ($5.00) and get to see our fabulous international judges, cats and our absolutely cute "Litter Match" contest where the babies get to shine.

Events in progress

It's been a busy time since our last show in June. We have been showing our Registered Dorsets at the Saanich Fair and on to the Cowichan Fair this weekend. My daughter Tina judged the Saanich Fair which was really nice as we got to see her and the kids while she was here. Seemed everyone was happy with her placings, so she achieved the impossible!!!
We have a show in Seattle next weekend and 4 shows in October from the new Kelowna show to Seattle, to Albuquerque, NM, and on to Calgary at the end of Oct. so I will be able to see the kids while I am there. It will be tough to reach me by phone, but I will check my emails regularly, so that will be the best form of communication.
We have some really lovely blue mitted kittens ready any time now and some new litters coming up for our Fall production.
Our next show in Victoria will be on Nov. 27 and 28 at the Mary Winspear, again, with a great judging line up. Seems that a lot of the judges we have had have all been voted Judges of the Year for TICA. Christie Unangst, Alberto Leal and now Aline Noel Garel (all judges of the year) have judged several times at our show.
Our show cats SGC Ragalong Yukon Gold and our new kitten Ragalong Burgundy are blazing their way through the show halls. Marilyn
