Lucinda the domestic cat is surely “the cat who got the cream” after taking out one of the Royal Adelaide Show’s top cat honours.
The six-year-old “dommie” or domestic cat, owned by Two Wells resident, Jayme Kidd, (right) was this year crowned Best Domestic or Part Pedigree Cat in Show.
Jayme said Lucinda was judged on her coat colour and texture, her personality, grooming and the way she interacted with the judges. Lucinda took the title from shorthaired domestic cat Golly, owned by Rebecca Kuss, of Two Wells, who was named reserve best domestic or part pedigree cat in show.
Keeping it in the family, Jayme’s mum, Marion, also had success at the show, with her three-year-old pedigree Scottish fold cat, Silver Double Grand Champion Remporter Emo Bear, ninth best exhibit pedigree cat in show.
The Kidds also bred the Schnauzer Best of Breed and Challenge Bitch winner, owned by Margaret Reedman, own the runner-up for the Best of Breed and Challenge Dog, and their Schnauzer dogs were also named reserve challenge winners.
n If cats are your thing, or you are looking for something fun to do, why not head to the All British Cat Society’s annual show at the Virginia Community Centre on Sunday, October 20.
Gates open from 10am.
