Once again Miss Aphrodite appears in the papers, this time the Southern Highland News - Bowral.

Our first official show with TFA saw Asciepius and Ammavaru competing with Aphrodite and Adonis on exhibition.     The three Queensland judges were very complementary of the high standard of the cats on display and very enthusiastic with their first examination of the Pixiebob breed.                                                                                   Asciepius did very well with a fourth and a seventh from a very tough field.  It was good to meet up with a few old friends and some new faces too.

Cat lovers descend on Bowral

Victorian Odyssey, 9th to 11th June 2012.

10th of June, Auspixie and Pixieroo were in Melbourne Victoria for the annual ACF show in the shadow of the world famous Flemington Racecourse. Over 500 cats, television and national newspaper "The Age" covered the event. Melbournians in their many hundreds, possibly over a thousand turned out for the gala event.

We made our presentation to the judge's guild the previous day and were glad to say the Pixiebob breed was accepted by the ACF. the icing on the cake was that from the first of January 2013 polydactyls will also be allowed to be shown and be awarded challenges.

The Age photographer Justin McManus was spoilt for choice with many hundreds of cats to choose from so it was a wonderful surprise when our own Miss Aphrodite was chosen as one of the 13 cats to appear in his article. She was only on exhibition but was a crowd favourite; the whole article and photos can be seen here:

Show Results

Yet another cat club in Australia recognises Pixiebobs and both the poly and straight footed.

Aphrodite and Pablo do well at the Sydney Royal 2014 getting a couple of fifths each. Aphrodite did especailly well given the big group she was in. As usual they were a hit with the crowd.

Jan 2013 - the much awaited first show.

From now on all TFA and Cats NSW shows can now have ALL Pixiebobs on show - including our Polys. After all the hard work the first show approached.

5th April 2012.

Pixieroo Apollo - the first Pixiebob at the Royal, slipped in as a Companion because of his long tail.
Although it was a small field he collected two thirds from the US and NZ judge and a fourth from the Aussie.
In the side classes he cleaned sweeped all three with Best Head, Purrfect Temperament and Best Groomed.

A proud mum checks out some of the winnings later that day and notes she has seen this
