Shorthair cat show at Tydd St Giles Community Centre

Shorthair cats took centre stage at an annual show held in the Fen for the 17th time.

The Exotic Shorthair Cat Society held its show at Tydd St Giles Community Centre, with 44 cats gunning for the title of best in show on Saturday.

Some came from as far afield as Essex, Kent, Yorkshire and Berkshire for the occasion as owners battled it out for top honours.

Barbara McEwen, society secretary and assistant show manager, said: 'We were very pleased that the weather was kind to us and we didn't get snowed off like in 2010.'

Best in show was a silver spotted cat called Finchfield Sergeant Pepper, a grand champion and grand premier owned by Pam Mallabone, of Hinckley in Leicestershire.
