Catholic pet show a success
Six-year-old Pearl Jenkins was confident her two Eidsvold chooks in a pram would take some beating.
ALL creatures unusual and slithery have been exhibited at the Mundubbera Catholic Women’s League Pet Show.
“There is something here for everyone,” Belinda Clark said.
“I come to the show every year with my little girl and husband and we are having a ball.”
Hundreds of Mundubbera residents flocked to the Catholic church ground on Saturday to view the extraordinary display of animals some people call pets.
There was something called a weimaraner that looked very much like a dog, and an animal that was definitely a snake but the owner, Riley Cook, insisted it was an Ambush.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for me to show everyone that Ambush is a cool pet,” Riley said.
“He won’t bite anyone, he just eats frozen rats.”
Two Eidsvold chooks in a pram would take some beating in any competition.
“I am very confident that Funny Face and Tinker Bell could win,” handler six-year-old Pearl Jenkins said before going into the ring for final judging.
Ms Parmer’s 12-year-old cat was also in the mix.
“Isadora will go close here,” Ms Parmer said.
The tension rose to unspeakable heights, but Ambush missed out on a grand prize of eight frozen rats. More than 40 pets were on display, entered in no less than 149 categories.
It made for a very successful day out.
The grand champion prize was awarded to Funny Face and Tinker Bell, the chooks owned by Eidsvold’s Pearl Jenkins.
Ambush won most adorable pet and Isadora won best looked after cat.
Ms Parmer was later seen looking for Isadora and Ambush was rushed home with a large lump in its belly. The CatholicWomen’s League would like next year’s 39th Annual Variety Pet Show to be bigger and better than ever.
