Yea my mentor advised me to get that.

When I first saw it pictured on the webpage, I thought that would be neat to get to have a few extra crates on hand for emergency.. but not for that price! WOW!

It is nice tho.. I supposse if you were getting serious about showing, it would be a very worthwhile investment.

I was told Cleo may not do well but show her 3/4 to see how she does.
The next one will be for showing.

What will you use the sturdi box for? As a toilet tray? What's wrong with just a container? I pick up mine for less then $1

Her bed will be pink with hearts on it.

I agree that a plain container is probably better.. $15 for something that the cat is just going to poop in anyways... your money tho.

I'd probably opt for a cheap plastic container with a lid.. during travel you can put the lid on it to prevent litter spills.. you'd need a container to carry the litter in anyways.

Ive also seen disposable litter boxes, which would be good for a show.

Ours have to have a lid, if it's used it must be covered to eliminate odours in the hall - most get them from discount stores for only a dollar or two.

Yeah I cart my litter in the containers to the show and then just pop them open when I'm there - mine was actually originally a cake container Not anymore

lol I certainly wouldnt want to use it for cake!

heh.. a little OT.. I've used a (new) kitty litter pan to put a cake it before.. my aunt wanted me to make a "kitty litter cake" for my cousin's halloween party.. basically you make white and chocolate cake, crumble it up, mix with vanilla pudding.. and then you use tootsie rolls, melt and shape them into little turds... I even added the touch of that one that hangs over the side of the pan LOL

No one wanted to eat it LOL

Sturdi products makes one of the less expensive show cages. So, that really isn't alot to spend.

I need something sturdy for the bengals when they get too frisky, so I use these:

Noticed that most of the Bengal owners at the shows do have a more sturdy cage.

Thanks Laureen. I might print it out and stick it on my fridge. I currently have a recipe for dark chocolate mousse on my fridge wanting to be made.

LOL I dont think a cloth cage would contain some cats very well.. we thing Gozer is part Bengal.. she can be rowdy at times.. I wouldnt try to put her in a cloth cage! If I were to get some cloth carriers for emergency use, she'd be the one to go in my plastic crate.

I think that cake is gross.
My friend made one years ago.
The cloth will work fine for Cleo.
post #19 of 26
The Sturdi Products cage is not made of cloth. It's a type of vinyl and very durable. It will be fine for Cleo.

The only reason it isn't fine for bengals, is due to it being lightweight it is prone to tipping and falling off the benching table if a heavy cat is playing inside it. I've seen this happen more than one time with bengals.

I have this in Tan. I use it to go to the vets and everyone always asks where I got it. I am getting Cleo used to the show cage. I am sure it will not fall over.
The carrier does because its small.
The material is very strong.
I sat the carrier on the couch last summer with a cat in it and it fell on the floor.
I doubt a Bengal would fit in the carrier.
The cage is Cleo is being shown in is big.
Anything else I should put in the cage besides the bed,dishes and litter pan?

I like the little hammock you can get for it!
post #22 of 26
I wanted to buy a show cage but I didn't. I am still thinking of buying one, the It'z A Breeze Too cage. I am just not sure if it is worth spending the money until I am sure that one of my cats will be showing frequently. I have been to about 4-5 shows but I stopped last year when Church was really grumpy at the last show and Roxy started to hiss in the judging cage(she was great at the first show but hissed at the second)...
Next weekend I am taking 2 of my kittens to a show and Roxy as well because she seems to be a lot more relaxed in public now. I was thinking of getting the show cage because I figured the kittens would be more comfortable if it was a cage from home, but I am not sure if I should wait and see if they like showing first.

Nek - I kinda felt the same way, but I've been showing for more then 25 yrs and just now got a cage. When they first came out, they were out of my price range. I got mine on sale thru the net - about $100 with shipping and I like it a lot.

Even if you don't wind up showing a lot, it still can come in handy at home for isolating a cat for medical reasons, or to get a stool sample, so the money would not be wasted IMO.

I figure if Cleo does not like showing i will be getting another sphynx to show.
So to me it is worth it to get a cage.
post #25 of 26
I agree. Even though I am not showing either cat, it has come in quite handy as a sanctuary for Mons. He loves the hammock, plus when we need to, we can zip him up in there with his food and litterbox, which are always in there anyway for convenience. I am not made of money (in fact I am a college student/full time worker), but I still don't regret buying the product one bit. Besides, in the future when we get another cat, I'll just sanitize the cage, and use it for shows again. Very handy. Plus for Mons' first and last cat show (before we knew he had FIP), I had it buckled in the back seat. Kinda took up the whole back seat, but that's okay.
post #26 of 26
Yeah I was thinking it would come in handy for other things, but I do already have two soft-sided (dog) crates and a bunch of carriers...and wire/metal crates and cages...
