Nobilero Devon Rex and Sphynx Cats  

Breeder of Devon Rex and Sphynx cats and kittens in Devon, England, UK.

Our Jack - my homebred boy has become the first Grand Champion male Sphynx  exhibited under GCCF rules.  He did this in 7 shows, winning Best of Breed on eleven occasions, Best Foreign Kitten on the 4 occasions he was shown as a kitten, also winning Best Foreign Exhibit at 7 months old.  In his adult career he made Champion in 3 shows, Grand Champion in a further 4 shows, his only blip being awarded the Reserve Grand at his second attempt for a Grand Certificate - so no shame there.  He has been awarded Best Foreign Adult and Best Foreign Exhibit at 2 of his Adult shows.

 

Jack has now been awarded his fifth and qualifying Imperial Grand Certificate, ninteenth Best of Breed, fifth Best Foreign Exhibit, fifth Best Foreign Adult and four Best Foreign kitten.

Lovely peachy feel to this handsome, charismatic loving lad who has wrinkles around his muzzle & top of head; shown in top condition & clean as a whistle. I debated about making the award as he has some coverage on his ears & feet, additionally his tail felt rather bristly & he had some coverage at the very tip of his tail. I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt however, in view of his wonderful type. We had a lovely cuddle.

Supreme Cat Show

This is our equivelant to Crufts and is our only show that requires qualifying by winning a certificate at another show. We can also decorate our pens and Jack was looking rather splendid on his shimmering green bed. Jack won his breed class but was beaten by a more mature cat for Best of Breed. Jack, as usual, did us proud with his lovely laid back attitude to all the admiration he received. Again, he was a great ambassador for the Sphynx breed in general. Jack had not been made up to Champion soon enough to enter the Grand Class, but this is what he will be entering in future.

This young man has that indefinable star quality. He waited regally for me to admire him. His head showed a modified wedge, with prominent cheek bones and whisker pads. The nose was straight with a moderate stop at the bridge of the nose, leading to a level bite but a very slightly receding chin. A super, well muscled body but still retaining that elegant look. The body was covered with a fine down and offered that slight resistance to the touch. A lovely boy with a super temperament.

II almost didn't go to this show because I was wondering whether it would be greedy to expect another fabulous day. But we went, Jack shouting at the top of his voice from home to Bridgewater and then sleeping the rest of the way to Thornbury. One of my favourite venues, but it was so hot in the hall despite the torrential rainstorms that morning. Anyway Jack made it more than worth our while winning 1st, BoB, Best Foreign kitten and Best Foreign Exhibit.
