partly retired from GCCF shows I decided to have a go at the more exciting
format of TICA. I am really enjoying these as I not only get to pose in a lovely
big decorated pen all day with the humums sat outside my pen me but I can also
show off to an audience while being judged!
I have now
retired from TICA but come back a bit more to GCCF. The humums decided TICA was
too gruelling for me now I am 11 as it is an awful lot of in and out, but I did
end up doing 6 shows in all over 3 "seasons" and all but one of them over two days, which meant there
was the added bonus
of a few days away in a hotel with only one or two of the others with me! I did
OK at the first one, out of 10 rings I finalled in 7 of them and won Best Cat in
2 of them, one on each day. I also came home with enough points to claim
the title of Triple Grand Master.
At the second
one I not only finalled in 2 out of the 4 rings on the Saturday but got Best Cat
in each of them. I missed one of the Saturday rings, however, due to a small
"accident" (NO, I do NOT wish to go into details here!!!) so really I only
missed finalling in 1 out of the 3 rings I got to. On the Sunday I finalled in 4
out of the 5 rings, winning Best Cat in 3 of them, and ended the day as a
Quadruple Grand Master.
I was really
looking forward to my next one and making the top title of Supreme Grand Master
but unfortunately had a small accident in the home which resulted in my damaging
my tail and so I had to miss a whole year. I returned, however in April 2008 and
once again thoroughly enjoyed myself, finalling in all but 1 of the 10
rings, the one I did not final in, being a judge who decided to final 5
different cats each day so even the cat who won eventual "Best of the best" did
not final in that one either. I won 4 of the 9 rings I finalled in, coming 2nd
twice and 3rd three times, I finished the weekend as Overall 2nd Best of the
Best! I alos gained my ultimate TICA title of Supreme Grand Master on the
I then did a 1 day affair with just 4 rings but I won all 4 of them so was
the unofficial best HHP even though they did not an official award for this.
following that I did a 14 ring one where I was awarded the 2nd Best of the best
at the end of the weekend and I finished my TICA career with another 14 ring 2
day show where I was the only HHP to final in every single one of the 14 rings
and was the top HHP there although again they did not do an official BOTB.
