More than 50 somalis meet at Zutphen (NL) in november 2007 ! Homepage  

The jubileumshow of the N.K.F.V. (Nederlandse KattenFokkers Vereniging),
organised for the club's 40 years, was memorable.
A special abyssinian and somali gathering had been scheduled on this occasion,
and there were about 60 abyssinians and as many somalis present !

The atmosphere was relaxed and joyful, and it was very rewarding to be able to meet
breeders from Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, etc. (we were only 3 Frenchies)

I succeeded in taking pictures of every single somali who was at the show,
unfortunately it was show closing time already when I finished and therefore the abys are not here !

I hope you will enjoy browsing through this very complete presentation of the somalis, grouped by coat colour.
(to see an enlarged picture of the cat in a separate window, just click on its thumbnail)
Several cats of a very respectable age were participating in the "veterans" class:
some 12, 13, 14 or even 16 years old.
