Okay - so some of you asked about the cat show so we thought we should post and tell you a leetle bit about what it's all about. Plus Mom need to finish the final American lit. paper and is easily distracted. BOL!
Unlike a dog show where you can come just before your assigned time. With dogs you get an aproximate time in advance and your breed will not show before this. All dogs of the same breed (not always the puppies if there are many dogs) will be shown for the same judge and at the same place. The cats must arrive early in the morning (7-8AM), go through a vet check and be set up in their crate where they must stay all day (7PM). They don't have to be locked in at all times- they come out to see the judge and to cuddle and stuff but they can't leave the building.
This is Virus' mom, Justa.
This is Tilly, one of Mom's favourites. As you can see Lene's curtains are a little bit fancier than the ones Mom just made.
This is Virus' litter sister, Rapunzel.
This is Virus in his crate - we borrowed curtains that were baby blue and brown. In a way not too different from what we've got now. He got to have his carrier in there so he had a nice safe place to hide. He was just a kitten after all.
Here's a lovely (ahahaha) picture of Mom carrying Virus up to the judge. They're only judged on the table and the arm of the owner/assistant carrying them.
Having a good look at Azari..
Virus having a little prayer before it's his turn.
Virus on the table.
Cat shows are a bit confusing as several judges can judge one breed - but all cats from one "colour group" will be with the same judge. Lene said this coming show she'll have 4 judges each day - so will be running around like crazy trying to keep track of who should be where - and when.
