Joshy is generally a very happy chappy despite his inherited frown and he enjoys going to cat shows and getting lots of cuddles! He went to cat shows as a pedigree cat initially but when he teethed his teeth no longer matched and he became what they call “undershot”, which meant that as a pedigree cat in the GCCF he did not win very much and did not do very well so we decided to try him as a Pedigree Pet where being happy counts a lot more! He did OK in TICA as a pedigree though and won their top title so he is officially called Supreme Grand Champion Ahe has done really well as a Pedigree Pet under his new show name and there he is now officially Supreme Olympian Gold Imperial Grand Master Cat Sr Joshua Purrkins. He enjoys his shows and especially enjoy the lots and lots of cuddles he gets from his “Cuddle Aunts and Uncles” .
