The chart below shows the distribution of BIVs per sex. 13,3% of  males received BIV and 11% of females. It was more likely to receive BIV with a male cat.

By amount of BIVs given, most of them went for category 2.
When looking at the numbers as percents with all entries, 13,9% of category 2 cats received BIV, 10,8% of category 3, 10,5% of category 1 and 9,7% of category 4 entries.

The following breeds received BIVs.
When adjusted to percentage of entries signed (per breed), most likely breeds to receive BIV were Neva Masquerade (NEM, 18,4%), Cornish Rex (17,8%) and Korat (15,2%).
The chart below shows the BIVs given per show class. Only total of 8 BIVs were given for neuters (1,8% of neuter entries).
When adjusted to the amount of total entries, highest likelihood to receive BIV was for a entry signed to class 1 (Supreme Champion/Supreme Premier)

24,7% of the entries that received BIV were nominated to BIS.

The below chart shows the BIVs given by the country of the judge.

Hush little baby - RIP our adopted kitten "Extra"

It hurts, every single time it hurts. Every single time it brings tears to eyes.

Extra came to us as an adopted kitten as his mommy did not care for him after C-section. He fell into the nest like he had been there always. When we gave him to Hulda, our balinese mommy, she just licked him and adopted him instantly. After couple minutes Extra was at home.
He did not suckle much, but received extra milk from bottle. Always so hungry and happily suckling.

Yesterday evening during the feeding we noted that he had a fresh rectum prolapse and he was rushed to the vet. At the clinic they made him wait over 2h before veterinarian decided to take him in. It was said to "not be life threatening condition". 1,5weeks old kitten... This is not our usual clinic where we are going, but another one where we took him due the nature of emergency to receive fast treatment.

The rectum was pushed back and stitched.

Unfortunately this morning he had given up, reason unknown, and he passed away peacefully without pains. He just... slept.

Thank you for this short time you were with us Extra. It just was a way too short time. We'll all be missing you, your enthusiastic voice when you realized a bottle was coming to you, your bright eyes and all the development that you did do when at our home. I am sad that I cannot follow up on seeing you grow to big and beautiful cat, but you'll do it behind the rainbow bridge with all the other kittens that have gone there before you.


I will lend to you for awhile a kitten, God said.
For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three.
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you and, should his stay be brief
You'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught below I want this kitten to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true.
And from the folk that crowds life's land I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take my kitten home again?
I fancied that I heard them say 'Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done'
For all the joys this kitten brings the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may.
And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.
But should you call him back much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If, by our love we've managed your wishes to achieve,
Then in memory of him whom we loved, please help us while we grieve.
When our cherished kitten departs this world of strife,
Please send yet another needing soul for us to love all his life.

What a weekend...

Our weekend pretty much began on Thursday when Hulda (Acousticat's FridayImInLove) gave us a grand surprise and gave birth to five kittens! We thought that she was not even pregnant as there was no outward signs (no pink nipples, no boobs, nothing...). Only thing we seen from her was her gaining some weight but that we put on her very good appetite and the never empty bowls of kitten chow. She did not even make a nest, but at early morning just went under a blanket on the bed and gave birth for the first two kittens.
In total there were five kittens, but unfortunately the last siamese/balinese was not viable for living as her chest cavity was open (deformation during development).
In the end we had four lively little kittens (OLH f 03, OLH d ?, OSH d 03 24 and SIA/BAL n).

On Friday son of Forcas Via Nocturna, moved to live with us. He is the same age as Hulda's babies and his mother wasn't too interested of nursing him after c-section, so the kitten count went back to five.

On Saturday we headed up to a cat show here in Warsaw. What a nice day to meet old and new friends. We also met daughter of Blackrock (Berta Egregius - OSH q 25) who was attending her first show and gained EX 1.
The rest of the results are as follows:

NW15 SC Blackrock Via Nocturna, JW (OSH n 03 25) PH, NOM
NW15 Lilith, DSM (HCS n 09) 1, NOM, BIS
IP Forneus Via Nocturna (OSH c 24) EX 1, CAGPIB, NOM
Jailhouse Rock Via Nocturna (OSH a 03), EX 1, CAC, NOM, BIS

Congratulations for owner of Elwis (Jailhouse Rock) and owner of Julek (Forneus) for great results!

Sunday morning began quite surprising. We were not expecting Anneli (Gehennas Via Nocturna - SIA g) to give birth yet for a week, but looks like the ultrasound was wrong and she began labor just before we were supposed to leave for the show. So I did stay behind at home to be the midwife and by 11am we were done having four kittens in the nest. One OSH f and three siamese babies.
Anneli did excellent job for her first ever litter and now we'll wait to see how the kittens are going to develop.


At the show the following results were gained:
NW15 SC Blackrock Via Nocturna, JW (OSH n 03 25) PH, NOM
NW15 Lilith, DSM (HCS n 09) 1, NOM, BIS
IP Forneus Via Nocturna (OSH c 24) EX 1, CAGPIB, NOM, BIS
Jailhouse Rock Via Nocturna (OSH a 03), EX 1, CAC, NOM
Itzpapalotl Via Nocturna (OSH c 22), EX 1, CAC

Again, huge congratulations for the owners of Elwis and Julek. It is so nice that you are bringing the boys to the shows :)
Unfortunately Blackrock did not attend to the BIS-ring. During the rewarding of Best Breeder (ps. Via Nocturna was the best breeder for category 4) he freaked out with so much people and rewards being pretty much pushed to his face, so he jumped on top of Marcins head (yes, there was a lot of blood) and ran under the foldable chairs at the wall. After the show Marcin managed to get him out and our poor boy was so stressed. Now he is going to stay for a while at home to be a daddy for our O-litter (from Gehennas).
