Thats awesome that your cats won those awards. It must be a very rewarding experience.
I'm going to my first cat show (ever) next weekend in Crown Point, IN. I'm excited about it, even though I'm not showing. I'm a litte concerned about my allergies though. I'm terribly allergic to most cats (I posted my experience in an allergy thread on this forum). Duke I have no allergies to at all, and I'm hoping the same will be true for Ares (I hear bengals have a similar coat structure as siamese). That will be the second biggest deciding factor for me on whether or not I show my babies (the first of course being whether THEY are up to it or not). Time will tell. I'll be sure to post pics when I get back!
