Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my Daily Meowers. Sorry for the lack of posts. I decided to take a bit of time off from meowing. Plus with the holidays and shows and website work, etc, etc, etc.

Well......2008 proved to be quite successful for the Kokopellie cats. All three boys, Cooncreole Zhivago (Frosty), Kokopellies Czar Nicholas (Nicky) and Kokopellies Polar Express (Polar) are all still holding on to their respective international best of breed title. They all also continue to hold on to a top 25 international ranking. As we go into the final stretch, it's going to be a nail biter. With a little luck and some good finals we should have three very good reasons to go to the Annual in Orlando this year. Frosty and Polar also have a very good chance at being the Southwest Region's Best Cat and Best Alter. These titles will be hard to hold on to as we are up against some very, very good cats.

The show up in Lodi last weekend was a good show for us. Frosty was Best in Show in his category and Polar was 6th in his category out of almost 40 cats. Polar was also in the news spot that aired and Jon and Frosty were pictured in one of the local Lodi newspapers. I will post links on the website that will take you to both. I did post the picture of Jon and Frosty. You can find it on the Show Calendar page and the At the Shows page.

We have a show in Arcadia this weekend. Then a few weeks off and the craziness starts all over again until April 30th. All we can do is hope, pray and present nicely groomed cats. The rest is in the hands of the judges. Keep your fingers crossed.

Miss Sorbet sure did surprise us. She took 8 finals at the Tucson show and 5 finals at the December Arcadia show. Currently she is the Best American Bobtail Cat in TICA. Woohoo!! For those wondering....."where's PJ?" PJ is doing great. He's in a bit of an awkward phase right now.....little head, big body. We need to let his head catch up with the rest of his body so he is more balanced. Then look out. :-) He is the sweetest cat ever. I can't wait to show him in the big boy class.

Our newest Siberian boy, Mufasa, from Sweden, is beautiful. I finally got to meet him. What a love. He showed at the Lodi show and made 3 finals, two 5ths and a 4th. Not too shabby considering there were over 60 kittens showing.

Other than that it's been pretty normal. Miss Skitz gave us some beautiful kittens. There is a chocolate silver torbie girl that could break some hearts in the show ring. We're still waiting for those Siberians to decide that they want to give us kittens.

Mom and I will be vending at the big CFA show in Del Mar next weekend. It's the Food & Water Bowl. Too funny.

I'm still playing around with the website on a weekly if not daily basis. There is always something changing. Have to keep it fresh.

That's it for now.

meow for now,
