Good tawny Somali's look like foxes, they are stunning. But my favourites are the black silvers.

I love the silver cats, i.e., the silver Bengals, silver tabbies, etc. Do you have a link to a black silver that I could go have a look at?

Oh my! So many beautiful cats - so little time. I would have loved to take at least one of each home yesterday.

I spoke to one lady who has a bonded cat-sitting business. That sounds like something I would like to do when I retire from my full-time job in 2.5 years.

I love the black silver somalis as well. Back when there was a chance I could get a second cat I was going to go for a male black silver somali. Nikita however has made it perfectly clear that she prefers being a single cat so that's not going to happen.

RB's are not popular show cats as many of them really don't want to be in the noise and cats in the show halls. They are not very "show oriented". My female RB hated shows. I had a rare neutered male that loved showing. I might go to 6-7 shows a year and only see an RB at one of them!

I saw a Russian Blue once at a show and it acted just like my Sasha would.
When people come over Sasha hides and if I try to show her to anyone I get slashed.
Cleo hissed at my dad for some reason but hugs and purrs for everyone else.
I can not wait to touch a Rex.
I also love the exotic looking breeds.

No problems with the Russians here (blues, whites and blacks ), entires and neuters all are confident in the hall and don't hide.

No problems with the Russians here either! My pet peeve is people calling them Russian Blues all the time!

Great pics, Linda!

Well only the Blue is found in the Russians over here - the other colors are not shown or accepted. IMO (since I owned RB's) - I really only like them in the Blue color. I've seen the white and black in pictures - you don't have the nice pretty silver tipping and green eyes.

Guess it was like with the Brits - for a LONG time you only had British Blues. Now that they are more popular with non-solid blues, you call them British SH's (hope one day the pointed, chocolates and lilacs will be accepted as colors. I love the pointed Brits.

Actually the good pics are Lise and Steve's pics. Mine were terrible. My hubby argues that my camera will take good pictures and that it's operator error. It's interesting to note that I can take great pictures with his camera so next time we are going somewhere where pictures will be taken, I'm going to insist he take my camera so he can prove to me just how poor a photographer I am.

Did you take the pics you attached? I was referring to the ones you attached (like the 2 ocicats) since it was your thread. I replied to Steve's too though!

It's hard to take pictures at cat shows - the cats are always moving. I'm especially hopeless at it!

Oh, yes I took the 2 ocicat pictures - thank you. You are so right, it was impossible to get them to be still long enough for a picture. The owner would hold them up, they would be looking straight at my camera and as soon as I pushed the button they turned away! Bijou is exactly the same. I see such amazing expressions on his face and hubby is always commenting on Beej's different facial expressions but as soon as I point a camera at him, he goes all shy and turns away.

Tell me about it - I wind up taking tons of pics of my Oci's just to get a few good ones. Thank God for digital as you can erase the bad photos. Those 1 second delays mess it up.
