While we were with Lorelai at her first show in Sweden, Izaak’s brother Joop was at the Wystawa Kotów Rasowych in Sopot, Poland.
I’m not sure exactly how the awards translate, but he did very well indeed, and I think this was his very first show, too. You can see him in action on the judging table
Unlike CFA, when you win a Best in Show you get not only a rosette but also prizes – usually food and cat accessories.
Here is Joop and all his winnings. That trophy is bigger than he is!
And if you are wondering why we didn’t take Zak along with Rory to the show this past weekend, well, that’s because while he is registered in FIFe, he is registered as a Polish cat, not a Swedish cat. He needs to have his details entered into Sverak‘s database as my cat before I can enter him. So as soon as that happens…we’ll see if he can do as well as his littermate!

It’s not often you find a news story about a Singapura, but back in 2013 a Singa kitten in London named Bruce Lee managed to dial 999 and summon the police.
Next they’ll be wanting their own iPhones.

This photo came up in my Facebook memories today, and I realised that I haven’t posted about what may be the most famous Singapura on the internet…but I reckon only a very few of you know his name.
Picky Chicken was the companion of Wendy Gosselin. He lost his battle with oral cancer at the age of 12 on 28 May 2014. But he will live forever as one of the winners of the greatest photoshop battles ever.

There are even more Photoshop battles involving Picky Chicken on Reddit.
One of my favourite time-wasters, Bored Panda, posted a hilarious video of a Japanese Singapura named Malt dragging his favourite toy around the house. This just shows how “small but mighty” Singas are.
You can see more photos of Malt on his Instagram page.
Aby-friend Rachel posted this on Facebook, and I had to share it. Not only does it feature an Abyssinian for Aries…but my sign, Gemini, is a Singapura! I actually did laugh out loud when I saw it.
Last week, Catster Magazine published “11 Reasons to Sing the Singapura’s Praises” and it’s really a nice little list. Check it out!
