[b]Dear cat lovers, the Malta Feline Guardians Club, MFGC, wishes you a most prosperous new year and invited you to register your beloved cats in order that they may participate in the 26th International Cat Show. This renowned event would be taking place in the Ballroom of the Phoenicia Hotel, Floriana on Sunday 23rd January 2011.[/b] Perhaps you have already visited our Cat Shows and was enchanted by the loveliness of the cats on display and pondered on possibility exhibiting your own cat. Maybe a friend has recommend that your cat may be deserving of an award and would certainly be surrounded by a host of admirers captured by its beauty. Thus this forthcoming Cat Show is offering you the chance to show off your feline in all its splendor and maybe even pick up a prize for its loveliness. During the show your cat would be exhibited with other gracious feline breeds amongst which would be Persian,Exotic, British Long Hair and Maine Coons. If your beloved cat is a Maltese Domestic cat,it too is worthy of being exhibited as this cat is often a favourite with the visitors and exhibitors alike.
The club has invited Mr Walter Baraldi, a WCF all breed judges from Italy to preside over the judging. A wide span of catagories are included to enhance the potential of your cat collecting an award.
These include three Show Rings for pure breeds kittens, adult and neutered cats and two Specialty Rings held for distinct features within each different class of feline, namely bi-colour, solid and tabby-colour cats.
Mr Baraldi would also be selecting the General Best Cat in Show. A task both delightful yet near impossible to decide between one exquisite feline and another!! The winning cat would then be eligible to participate for the Master Title in a show later in the year. The Master Title is amongst the most coveted award a cat may receive.
The visitors would also be voting for their favourite cat and it may be your cat that would sway their vote! The theme of this show is the Magic of Colours and you, the exhibitors, may wish to decorate your cage to highlight this theme and perhpas win the judge’s vote for best cage.
This show is kindly sponsored by Glad Enterprises and supporting sponsors Micabliss Persians. The MFGC would like to inform the public that applications are now open for anyone who wishes to have his or her cat take part in this show…..and perhaps become a title holder!! All entries must be received no later than the 10th January. Late entries would incur a 10% increase in the registration fees.
