Maine Coon wins Overall Best in Show
at Preston & Blackpool 40th Anniversary Show

The Overall Best in Show at Preston and Blackpool Show was chosen
by Mrs Joyce Worth, who was faced with the unenviable task of choosing just one winner from the seven top cats. After much deliberation she chose the Maine Coon,
Gr Ch Velvetjewels Cullinan, (pictured above) owned by a delighted Kath Atkinson.
