1st out of 4 Tortie, tortie-white, bi-colour or colourpoint

3rd out of 5 Selkirk Rex kitten

2nd  MINSHALL’S  ACOZNI TWILITEAMBER.  79s 21.  21-05-08.  Black Tortie Selkirk Rex, this was another gorgeous kitten with loads of potential & worthy of 1st prize in other competition.  Head has good width, well developed cheeks, the muzzle has the typical puffed pads to create the required rectangular shape, gentle dip to nose, excellent chin & bite.  Ears medium size fitting well into the head shape, tufts at the tips with light curly interiors.  Eyes well open & round the colour still deepening (not that it is relevant), but it looks more aesthetically pleasing when it is the appropriate colour to the pattern, lovely expression.  Body not the development of the winner but almost a month younger so time to catch up, legs & paws proportionate to her development, very good tail which was of medium length & quite thick.  Superior quality coat, which was thick & dense, standing from the body, impressive amount of random unstructured, curl in abundance, particularly the tummy which was an amazing texture as a result, the tail too was showing lots of curl, beautifully prepared, excellent curling whiskers & eye brows.  Most attractive colour combination her tortie combination well broken, with quite vibrant shades of red against the black.  Temperament superb, amazing temperament.

3rd  MINSHALL’S  ACOZNI  NITESHADOW.  79s  36.  21-05-08.  Black Smoke Selkirk Rex, litter brother to the girl above & again a pleasing youngster.  Head not quite so broad as his sibling, cheek lines a little more defined, nonetheless his muzzle was good, rounded forehead with a little too much definition to the nose break almost a stop, firm chin, good bite.  Ears medium size, tends to carry perhaps just a little high, curly interiors.  His eyes I would have preferred a little larger but this often the case with babies, slightly muddy tone.  Body cobby & well boned, strong legs rounded paws, broad medium length tail to balance.  Like his sister he has a lovely amount of loose unstructured curl to his very soft coat, which stands from the body, very good density, tighter round the base of the ears, neck, tummy & tail.  Very good smoke showing good silver undercoat coming in & black top coat, good contrast.  His temperament confident & friendly, lovely condition.  Both these kittens are believed to homozygote, which makes them very useful for the breeding program.

1st Female open class kitten out of 3

1st out of 7 Breeders M/F

1st out of 4 Debutante M/F

2nd out of 5 AC La Perm/Selkirk Rex M/F

A very pleasing female kitten with type, boning and balance. Her head has strength and breadth with rounded contours and full cheeks. Very good rectangular muzzle with well padded whisker pads. Rounded forehead and a good profile. Firm chin. Large, really expressive eyes with a mischievous expression. Cobby body that is rectangular with very good boning. Tail balanced well. Super curls although the coat could be more plush for perfection. Wonderful temperament and shown in sparkling condition.

MINSHALL’S ACOZNI TWILITEAMBER. Female Black Tortie Smoke Shorthair Selkirk Rex. 21/5/08.

Super baby girl of good type Balanced cobby body is of very good size and weight for four months, firm and well muscled with good underlying bone-structure, level back, gently rounded chest and slender study limbs of medium length ending in compact round paws in proportion. Head shows broad rounded skull with good full cheeks and short blunt muzzle. Medium size ears are broad based, neat and of good shape, spaced well apart, good furnishings and tiny tufts at tips. Large lustrous rich barley sugar orange eyes are full and round, held well open and set wide apart to give typical expression. Rounded brow, very good break, short broad straight nose and firm level chin of good depth; bite is just marginally undershot off, but acceptable in such a young kitten. Good medium length to coat, thick, dense and uniform in length, soft and plush in texture with very good curl to hairs loose and standing away from the body – I could really get my fingers into her coat, ripples down chest, good curl on head and neck, good curl to tail hairs, compact and full. Solid jet black predominates with rich warm medium red intermingled. Tail is of good shape and medium length to balance. Confident, relaxed and playful – a very affectionate girl and a pleasure to judge.

2nd out of 6 -British Novice kitten

3rd out of 6- British visitors kitten

Extra 2nd.MINSHALL’S ACOZNI NITESHADOW (79S 36) 21.5.08 Gorgeous smoke lad, with a fabulous look about him but I felt his muzzle was rather prominent and not as rectangular as the 1st two lads and he wasn’t quite as full cheeked as the kitten above, but he had a super dome to his head in profile with correct ears for set and spacing. Other than that, his coat is stunning, he has excellent tight curls, standing well away from his body, curly whiskers and eyebrows too. Excellent bone to him, a good solid chap with rectangular body shape coming and medium length well boned legs. I feel he would be an asset to this breed.

1ST – MINSHALL’S ACOZNI NITESHADOW – Selkirk Rex Shorthair Black Smoke male 21/05/08

Good rectangular frame with level back, medium length solid legs and firm round paws. Round head with cheeks filling out. Medium sized ears are well set. Large round eyes are well opened. Broad nose with downward slant, good profile and firm chin. Short plush coat covers his body well and show good evidence of the Rex gene with plenty of random unstructured curls. Waves evident on paws and tail
