Name: Champion and Imperial Grand Premier Bountiful Peekaboo

Alias: Angel

Breed: Devon Rex cat.

Age: 8 years and 8 months   (DOB 7.9.99)

Likes:  Admiration, Posing (to obtain admiration), attending cat shows (to obtain admiration) and playing with the kittens when she thinks no-one is looking.

Hates: Baths and her sister, Beanstalk.

If human, she would be:  A beauty queen

Wants: To be admired, to be made a fuss of, to be ?top cat? in the household
Why was she chosen as a pet:  My daughter, who knew absolutely nothing about show cats fell in love with her when she saw her as a young kitten.

Fascinating fact: The Devon Rex breed developed as a result of mating a cat to its mother; it is therefore important to ?outcross? to other breeds to widen the gene pool.

What is the most impressive thing she has ever done:  Either becoming an Imperial grand champion (5 judges at 5 different shows have to agree that yours is the best grand champion in the class) or winning Overall Best cat in Show at this year?s Jersey Cat Club show in May at the ripe old age of 8 years and 8 months! The latter, probably.

These look like Snail Gap Year Students ready to attend a full moon beach party in Thailand, but they?re not…

These tecno-rave fans are in fact Toxic Nudibranchs and can be found all around the world slowly making their way along the seabed. They are a distant relative of the snail, but they have swapped their shell-defence for toxic secretions and stinging cells!
