The show is tomorrow! - Page 2

I'm sure that even if he had another black/white bicolor he would have gotten 1st in color. I'm sure it was a hard decision to make between the two. Did you notice any of the judges really taking the time to go between them before given the division (bicolor) award to the cream?

I thought maybe a couple of them took second looks. But mostly, no. Several of them did mention his gorgeous eye color and that he had a nice round face.

I've got the pictures ready and will post some of them in a minute.

This was when we first got there. Maxx is wondering "why did you put me in jail, mom?"


This is Chunky Monkey. The exotic Persian next to us. The owner was a little old man and he was very helpful.


There were lots of Abys there. It's hard to see through these security cages. But I liked the sign!


Another Aby


This was the only male judge. I wasn't impressed with him at all as he seemed to not really want to be there. Anyway... this was his best cat and it was a stunning siamese.


Another judge with a himmie. This one was pretty quiet but nice.


This cat was awesome.


This is the Siberian. He was a huge cat!


Maxx being judged.


My favorite judge. Her name is Betty White and she is fun to watch. She is so full of energy, animated and into the cats.


I absolutely LOVE this cat!


Humongous cat! I think it's a Maine coon? I'm sure that's what they said but I'd never seen one with this coloring.


This is blurry but I wanted you to see how big this guy was.


and a little Scottish Fold.


Cornish Rex?


This was Maxx's Persian bicolor competition. I thought I got a better picture of him but I can't find it. this is Bo.

Another of the cutie I loved so much. She's in her judging cage. I believe she is a Devon Rex? Forgive me but I am not familiar with some of these breeds.


This judge was very nice and vocal. Her's was the first ring Maxx went into. I didn't get a picture of Maxx with her though.


this was a really vocal judge too. I liked her. This was Maxx's last ring and it was getting late


This judge seemed a bit etcentric. But she was pretty vocal as well. She would really take time to examine the cats and loved to play with them.




This poor Sphynx boy was very naughty. This was when he was in the ectentric judges ring. He was pretty aggresive and she finally had to give up on him. I couldn't hear her reason but she took all this cat's color points away.


This cat is gorgeous. Very nice coat.




Another Sphynx


That's it! I tried to get a variety of pictures. Two pictures I didn't get that I really wanted were of some of the Brittish short hairs and the selkirk rex. Oh well.... I was busy.

One more I almost forgot! This is Maxx with his 6 winners ribbons. It was just before I tore down my cage and he does not look impressed. Does he? I had forgotten his bowls so I had to have a friend bring some from home. I asked for small and got big and plastic!

Great pics, and congrats to Maxx and YOU on your success!

First you got all the breeds right The reason the sphynx got ribbons taken away was because the judge could not handle him and he was disqualified. I'm surprised that the judge did not call up the owner of the cat to take him out and then judge him on the table. Most judges do that.

I can see why about the cream/white. Much more coat. Shame you didn't get a face shot for comparison. But I'm sure you will do well next time when he's got all his coat, etc.

Great pics. Can you check the catalog and let me know if there was any Oci's in the show (kitten, cat, alter) and if so who were they. Pm me with that if you find any

I'll look tomorrow. I don't remember seeing any but you know how it is when you're showing. I'll let you know tomorrow evening.

Congrats on the great show! Even if he didnt have competition - they were all scared

You never did say - what d'ya do about the whiskers? I love the last pic of him in the cage with the ribbons - in the litter box!

...after all the bathing and butt combing!



ETA - I forgot to say --- I love his eyes too! Just mesmerizing!

Thanks! I just left the whiskers the way they were. I don't think they were as bad as it seemed to me.

I actually hadn't because I am on dial up and don't wait for all the pictures load. So thanx for telling me! I went back and waited just to see the Somali. Very nice color on that cat

Also the professional picture of Maxx is gorgeous!

Wonderful pics & really enjoyed reading the captions to go with them - you must be so exhausted by now
As for the naughty Sphynx - wonder if the judge was too eccentric for him - cats can be sooo honest with their opinions

I don't know about the situation with the Sphynx. The lady had a good rapport with the rest of the cats. She reminded me of someone who may be a cat lady with 100 cats in her little clapboard house. She was a cute little old lady in her way.
