International Judges from World Cat Federation (WCF) Ms. Irina Sadovnikova from Russia and Mr. Anthony Aldum from South Africa - were judging and discussing about the cats with their owners. As a mandatory ICF rule, all cats entering the hall were examined by Vets from “The Bombay Veterinary College’ to ensure the cat’s vaccinations were up to date and they were free from any infection. Then the cats proceeded to both the judges to be classified and allow cats entry into the competition. Cats were allotted their dedicated cages with cat food sponsored by Whiskas, Litter sand sponsored by “Castor & Pullox Pets” store. Litter Tray, Food and Water Bowls were also provided by ICF... thus ensuring all the basic requirement of the cat was met during the show.
We had cats arriving at the venue from 8:30 am onwards. Saquib Pathan, President of ‘Nashik Cat Club’, Nashik and Shahab Ali, President of ‘Deccan Cat Club’, Hyderabad travelled to Mumbai with their club members and their cats to participate in the show. From Mumbai we had many cat parents attending the show with their cats and some of them were attending the show for the first time. Amongst them were Sufiyan Salim Khan (10 cats), Mehnaaz Khan (8 cats) and Juwairiah Shaikh (5 cats). Devandra Purbiya brought Kitten Bubbles, Daughter of ‘Bella’, who is the first cat to win ‘Best Overall Title’ three consecutive times. Just like her mother she stole hearts of many.
The cats were categorized as per their breed for Traditional Judging at 12 noon and by afternoon, 4:00 pm Ring Judging started, in this round the cats are categorized in three different sections – Kitten, Adult and Neuter. Once this has been sorted 10 cats (max) at a time are called up on the dais so that the judges can take one final look to shortlist the winners. ICF Team noticed that the Judges had a tough time deciding the winners as all the cats were simply outstanding. Kudos to all cat parents who participated!!!
There were around 3000 visitors coming in as well - cat lovers, cat breeders, parents along with their children, some were inquisitive visitors who were curious to see the gorgeous feline participating at our show.
