Is Uno worth showing?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
here is a pic of Uno, a 5 year old seal point lynx birman. he is registered with the CFA. i thought his previous owner showed him with Sace, but as i understand now , it was only Sace that was shown.

Is Uno worth showing even though he is altered?

**update** i jsut got the mail, and low and behold the previous owner forgot to give me some papers. Uno is a Grand and Premier in the CFA.

You may want to go to the CFA website (www.cfa.org) and read up on the breed standards. There is also a place where you can sign up for a mentor. I don't know the breed standards for birmans (sorry, only persians ), so I can't really be any help to you there.

Your idea of going to a few shows is good. There's a lot to learn and a lot to see. You'll be able to meet people showing birmans, see the cats being shown, and possibly find someone local to you that would be willing to help with all the grooming and preparation for a show.

Give it a try if you want, but most definitely go to have FUN!

can't give you 'official' advice - but he sure is a beauty!

I'd put him in a show or two - see how he handles. He obviously fit the standard if he's grand in CFA

I say, if you have the rights to show, go for it. He's a beautiful cat.

I second Nial's and GK's opinion - no harm in showing him in a different registry at all!

Yes. Him having heavy titles i CFA isnt necessary good news, as he cant any longer participate as Mr Nobody... I have a weak memory they cant participate as they want when having titles....

So a different registry may be the solution. A terrific experience for you, to particpate with a cat used to the milieu, not being afraid or bothered any...
