If you like Siamese cats - why not visit our nice friendly little show.
What is a Breed 32 ?
Siamese come in various different colours.
Seal Points, Blue Points, Chocolate Points, Lilac Points, Cinnamon Points, Caramel Points and Fawn Points are known as Breed 24 series Siamese.
When the Tabby Points, Red Points, Tortie Points and Cream Points were first recognised the breeders of the "traditional" colours would not accept these as "proper" Siamese so they were given breed numbers beginning with "32". Apricot Points have since been recognised and added to the list. They are therefore all known as 32 series Siamese. (In the USA they are sometimes known as Colorpoint Shorthairs)
Where is the Show ?
The show is at the 3M Hall, Bracknell Sport and Leisure Centre, Bagshot Road, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12 9SE, England.
When is the Show ?
The next Show will be held on Saturday 29th May 2010
It will be open to the public from 12 noon to 4.30 pm.
What will I see ?
Ours is a small, friendly, specialist breed Championship show.
You will see Tabby Point, Red Point, Tortie Point, Cream Point and Apricot Point Siamese. These cats are all penned, with their litter trays and cosy white blankets, ready for the judges to examine them and make their decisions.
In 2010 we will be sharing our hall with three other shows - the Balinese Cat Society Championship Show, for any colour of Balinese, the Tonkinese Cat Club Sanction Show, for any colour of Tonkinese and the Caramel & Apricot Federation Sanction Show, for Caramel and Apricot Siamese & Orientals together with Cinnamon and Fawn Siamese & Orientals (Self and non-self of all patterns) and Oriental Bicolours. Any cat who wins a Certificate at the Breed 32 Show or the Balinese Cat Society Show will be qualified for the Supreme Show.
Both the Balinese Cat Society and the Tonkinese Cat Club shows have sections for non-pedigree pet cats and a cat may be entered in both shows.
In addition to these cats in competition we have an exhibition section. These cats spend their day in decorated pens as they will not be judged in the serious competitive classes.
There are trade stands selling everything your cat might need, plus jewellery, cat collectables etc. There will also be Club tables with information about cats in general and Breed 32 Siamese, Balinese, Tonkinese and Caramel & Apricot in particular.
If you wish to book a trade stand:
The climax to the show is the Best in Show judging; the day's top winners are judged against each other to find the Best in Show male and female Adult, Kitten and Neuter and finally the Best Exhibit in Show. These winners are then placed in specially decorated pens.
Can I buy a Kitten ?
You will not be able to buy a kitten at the show and take it home with you. This would be far too stressful for any kitten.
You will be able to talk to the breeders and exhibitors and learn about their cats. Some of the exhibitors may have kittens at home or be expecting litters soon, so you will be able to discuss this with them and arrange to visit them.
Who runs the Show ?
The Show is run by two Cat Clubs jointly. Both are affiliated to the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy. The Red Point & Tortie Point Siamese Cat Club is the specialist breed club for Red, Tortie, Cream and Apricot Point Siamese. The Tabby Pointed Siamese Cat Society caters for all colours of Tabby Point Siamese. These two Clubs have been holding this specialist Show every May since 1979.
