Next weekend, me and my girls are going to travel all the way to Stockholm Sweden. First, some 300 km by train and then a night in a ferry. In FIFe, we must get certificates from abroad too, so I decided to go to Sweden this time. And it will be a Bengal Special on Saturday. There will be over thirty bengals, 25 brown spotted, so lots of competition too. Swedish benagals are high quality, so there are no easy certificates. I know Bertha has several cats to compete with and I believe Lara has too. So please, keep your fingers crossed for us! But anyway, it will be fun and I will rake tons of pictures :D

There is one obstacle, there is a LOT of ice on Baltic Sea and ferrys have run late and been cancelled :(

Our weekend was perfect! My girls did so well and I saw one gorgeous bengal after another. And so will you se, whenI manage to process all my 1200 pictures (and I am not kidding)!

My Lara ot her certificate and gained a new title FIFe International Champion and was BIS altered female. She also got her first certificate in her new class and was nominated for BIS (best in show)(but lost is with one vote)

Bertha won her certificates both sat and sun. and was nominated for BIS on sunday. In bengal specialclass Bertha was a second in "The Wild Cat Look"-Class.

There were 33 bengals on saturday and "only" 19 on sunday ;D

I just figured out, My Lara was the oldest bengal in that show and she is just four and half :D
