I am tickled pink and figured I'd share with all of you too!

My Selkirk Rex that I brought home after Neala died (I did not want a new Sphynx- just missed Neala too much!) became a Grand Champion in his VERY FIRST WEEKEND out as an adult!

He made it to six finals and took Best Allbreed Cat in one and 2nd place in another (and 6th, 8th, and two 10s). Considering he may not have a ton of curl to his coat, he has a LOT of type and the judges that placed him seemed to prefer type to just a curly coat ;)

Here is my boy- so very impressed with his wins!

Congrats!!!

And a beautifal cat it is. :)

The Selkirks are not recognised here yet but I know there are breeders and owners working for it. They need a certain amount of cats that are homgenus and that all have four generations without outcrosses to get a recognition show going and that is still a year or two away as it seems but soon they will be ok to show here as well.

Happy for you, good weekend indeed. :Laugh:

You might have seen him at the Annual, but we were all so busy crazy there :) He placed in a final then too- but as a kitten.

Yep, his name is Cole- or Susens Jeepers Creepers of Allearz is his registered name :D

Selkirks are nice because they are super soft, super lazy, and a good contrast to higher energy cats in the house!

I love her.
I have been benched with sphynx people once and that was at the Annual.
The Regional we asked to be with each other but that does not count.
I hope Kona is not scared of baths because I will give her a bath this week.

Congratulations! Your Cole (or shall I say Susens Jeepers Creepers of Allearz (that's quite a unique name!)) is gorgeous. And I've never heard of a cat GCH so quickly. Very impressive.

Heh- his breeder (Momma) names all of her kittens after songs... I wanted originally Michael Jackson's song.. Ummm... Gotta Be Startin' Something- but she wasn't as keen on it. So we went old school! I think Jeepers Creepers is... Louis Armstrong :)

Congratulations. Granding in one show is quite a feat. Cole is very special.
