DW and I watched the Cat-Minster cat championships the other night. We noted that three of the ten finalists were Persians. We also heard something said about how rare it was for a shorthair to win. As an owner of both, I do not find this fair, and of course a Persian won. First let me say I have never given Persi a bath and he is two weeks shy of his first birthday. But what we were wondering is how in the world do they get those Persians to look like they have so much hair? I know they get all fluffed up with hair dryers and such but their hair looks so much longer than Persi's. How can this be? Persi is a CFA registered Persian with champion parents. So why does he not have hair as long as the three finalists appeared to have? Is this some type of optical illusion? And, if they really do have hair that long, what is the secret to making your cat have longer hair? Persi is the first and only longhaired I have had and I want his hair to be as long as possible. Is that possible? Also, I heard it said that their hair only counted for 10 out of 100 points. If this is true, then why do longhairs win so much? If it is not care and grooming then what is it? Persi has been down in the dumps since seeing that show.
