interesting show. Luna got 3 finals and I know Nial's cats got some, but I didn't keep track how much. Also, we left early today because something (or things) made Luna very upset. She escaped two times from her cage and once from the show ring (it took a few minutes to recover her). I was shaky myself after her final escapade.
Thanks again to Nial for watching Luna earlier today for me, while Mom and I stepped out for Sunday worship. Apologies again also for Luna being such a bad kitty while we were gone. Cats are such ungrateful animals. Nial did the favor of covering for me and Luna was so not a nice kitty to him.
I also was sick during the trip. A cold started up on Friday before the trip, but it was too late to cancel, so I went anyway after work. Traffic and weather didn't cooperate and since I'm the one who drives when it gets dark, I ended up doing most of the driving, which caused us to get there late, which led us to get very little sleep that night, which in turn made for a very long Saturday.
The good part is that Luna finally won best cat in her 5th ring of the day. I was thrown off because she was losing the entire day until then and combined with my cold, I was REALLY confused
. My head was too foggy to fully absorb the win.
It gets better - the last ring, she actually swatted at the judge as she got put back in the cage and wins fourth.
Her attitude ceased to be funny after today's antics. It kinda made for a sad ending to a productive show, but I asked the show manager if I could leave. I felt so sad about the whole situation. She was perfectly fine (talkative too) in the first ring before I left her and when I came back it seemed that she suddenly made a 180 in her attitude. Apparently, the stress of her escapes and the cat benched next to her (which she apparently didn't like for some reason) made her very unhappy.
It was certainly a roller coaster of a show, but I just hope that Luna's behavior at the show hall was only temporary. I miss the kitty that made finals because of her sweetness.
