NaturallyTICA and Felinology TICA EW 2018 Regional Show
Roll up, Roll up, Ladies, Gents, Kids, Cats and Kittens!! Naturally Feline is proud to present the show of the 2018 Season taking place at the Elmbridge Xcel Leisure Centre in Walton-on-Thames on the 22 and 23 September 2018.
Naturally Feline is comprised of two great show teams – Felinology – Joanna and Emily Bell and Naturally TICA – Delsa and Phil Rudge. Both teams have huge experience running shows, with Naturally TICA celebrating its 10th Anniversary earlier this year, and are delighted to be hosting this culmination of the 2017/2018 TICA Show season.
We have 7 wonderful International Judges – Pascal Remy All Breed (France) Phillipa Holmes All Breed (UK) Katharina Krenn All Breed (Austria) Francesca Gagern All Breed (Austria) Alex Marinets All Breed (Canada), Valentine Tessens Speciality (Belgium) and our wonderful WCF Guest Judge Elena Mundre All Breed (Lithuania).
TICA encourages children to learn more about cat care and we will once again be having our Junior Exhibitors out displaying their cats to the judges and winning some fantastic prizes. We have also had word that a very sweet young lady will be bringing her new baby – recently adopted from Ace to show for the very first time and take part in our Junior Exhibitors ring.
This is a great opportunity to watch the judges in action and learn more about your favourite breeds, Siamese, Persian, Ragdoll, Maine Coon, Sphynx, Cornish and Devon Rex’s and perhaps meet some new breeds, such as the Peterbald, Lykoi, the Marguerite and many more.
This year we also have the return of the CATWALK – a shopping area for both you and your feline fur child. With over 20 vendors in our Catwalk you are sure to find something to delight yourself and your feline companion.
The highlight of the weekend with be our Best in Show competition – where the Best 3 Adults, Alters, Kittens, HHP Cats and HHP Kittens with be named after being judged over the course of the 2 days by all judges. With our Head Judge presenting the overall Best in Show from these top finalists. This will take place on Sunday afternoon.
Because sharing is caring, and we love to give a little something back. Naturally Feline will once again be running our tremendous “Feed the Ring” to help a local self-funded charity Ace Cat and Kitten Rescue based in Coulsden. Sue from ACE does some absolutely amazing work for fur babies in need. You will receive a 50% discount on the door from your entry price if you bring along some items for the charity such as cat food, toys, blankets, cat litter, or anything a cat or kitten might need.
This year we are also supporting Smokey Paws once again www.smokeypaws.co.uk – who raise mmuch-neededfunds to provide fire departments all over the United Kingdom with breathing apparatus to help cats and dogs when house fires occur.
