TONKAHOLICS TWO THOUSAND AND FIVE

17:12:05: What a wonderful day we had at the Maidstone & Medway, We met up with some very close friends. There were quite a few Tonkinese there. Tonkaholics Isla Tanika won a best of Breed, beating several other Tonkinese . She had some very good results in the miscellaneous classes. Bless his little heart Tonkaholics Uncle Sam did very well also, he won his Open and beat 4 other Tonkinese, with a Best of Breed. He also did well in his miscellaneous classes.

19:11:05: What a wonderful day we had at the Supreme. Grand Champion Isla Tanika was up for a UK Grand Certificate, she was in a very large class with 6 Asians. All very good cats of which one of my friends also had two of her cats in. It must have been very hard for the judge to choose the winner as these girls were all superb examples of their breeds. Isla Tanika did not get the UK Grand certificate, but her critique was excellent, to be seen on her own page. Her dressed pen was Bed knobs and broomsticks complete with a four posted bed with bed knobs. Once judged she went to bed under her Chinese quilt cover. She is a very special little treasure.

In the afternoon we were presented with our prize from Royal Canin for being 3rd in the Top Foreign Breeders Competition. But the day was even more special for us as we were able to be with very good friends of ours.

29:10:05: What a wonderful day we had at the Tonkinese Breed Club Show, The atmosphere was wonderful, with so many nice people, all trying to achieve one goal. A wonderful Show. We did not take a lot of cats this year. But those we did take had a wonderful day and this just added to the excitement.

15:10:05: Well today, brought mixed blessings. It did not start well, Ishtar decided she would play a game of hide and seek, before we set of to the show. This went on for nearly an hour, my thoughts went from Oh well stay at home, to Oh hell, she has got out when the dog was let in, I finally found her under the bed, a place we had looked several times. I'm not sure whether my husband went back to bed, after we left or found himself too wide awake after that little bit of indignation, from Ishtar.

My next little bit of bad luck was on arriving at the Kentish to be met by a pay and display machine. 8 for the day. I dutifully paid this. On retuning to the car, after penning the girls up, I found that a parking ticket had been slapped on my car. Apparently I was not the only one to find one.

 Any way Grand Champion Istar, for the third time got a reserve Imperial Grand certificate and Grand Champion Isla Tanika got the Best of Breed. Both girls did very well in side classes. So the girls had a brilliant day, but for me it ended by getting lost going home, I cannot tell you where I have been today, abet to say Kent has some very pretty countryside.

17:09:05: Today, was almost a repeat of the three Counties Show. Once again at the Bob Cats, Gr Ch Tonkaholics Istar received a Reserve Imperial Grand Challenge Certificate, in a fairly big class. plus several firsts in side classes.

Kipper also won several other firsts in side classes.

20:08:05. What a wonderful day the Tonkaholics cats had at the Three Counties Cat Society show.

Mean while the beautiful Tonkaholics Isla Tanika, was awarded with her third Grand Challenge certificate, giving her the title Grand Champion Tonkaholics Isla Tanika.
