NW TICA show results for us

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Well, we JUST got back home from the cat show today after a 5 hr drive and I just had to post the results to you all.

The girls did so well for their first time, and I couldn't be happier with their behaviour during the whole thing. The first ring was a little overwhelming for them, but neither of them bit or hissed or scratched.

Because there were only 2 other sphynx in the show, we had great results. The other two were experienced in the showhall, one of them a QGC.

My girls split 7 rings between themselves getting firsts and seconds 5 out of 7 rings, but always in the top 3, never in last place which of course they didn't have because of the numbers. Much to my surprise, my Maddie finaled and so now she is a CHAMPION!!!!! She placed 9th out of 39 Allbreed cats. OMG, how exciting is that for a first timer and what an experience the show was. I was benched beside the other sphynx breeder/exhibitor so she taught me so much and helped me with the keeping track of the rings and positions.

I had so much fun that I didn't even shop in the vendors area!!! Next show I am going to do that, but wow, you are kept so busy when showing.

I have a picture with the judge who finaled her and he had such nice things to say about her. He said that in his opinion, she was the BEST SPHYNX. I was so thrilled and he asked me to get my camera for a picture with him. I was completely honored. I don't look all that great in the pic and I was beaming with pride like a 5 yr old who just won candy!!!

We are going to our next show at the end of October to compete again and will be bringing our stud Monty to show for his first time.

Thank all of you for your support and I'm sure I will be asking questions from all the stuff I learned today. I am in information overload LOL

I've seen him before. He is Bill Lee. He's judged Luna before when she used to like showing.

Thanks for all of the nice compliments everyone!!! My internet isn't working right now and hasn't all day so we just figured out how to connect through our laptops with someone elses open wireless . Anyways, I just wanted to thank everyone and not have it seem like I was ignoring everyone.

I've been beaming all day again, I still can't believe it.

Jacky, none of the names are familiar to me, but I don't know many just the ones from the show I was at.

Thanks for informing the girls on the list about the show. I can't wait for the next one when Monty can show off his stuff.
post #11 of 23
I will post it in the sphynx group for you.
I am sure they will be so happy.
Is your next show TICA?
post #12 of 23
Thread Starter 
Yes it will be a TICA show as well. I have yet to see a CFA show in Western Canada listed on their site.

I really thought the way the show was run was good. I haven't registered my cats with CFA yet, but I have a registered cattery with both associations.
post #13 of 23
I was told if a TICA and CFA how are on the same day to go to the TICA show instead.
They say TICA is more fun.
I guess I will find out in October.
This is Cleo's first TICA show.
There is a cage decorating contest and costume contest.
I am going to decorate and bring a costume for Cleo.

I heard they do not annouce finals in TICA like CFA.
CFA calls the cats on the loud speaker.

The way it went for us was when finals were announced, they said to go check a certain ring for your cat's number and take your cat to the ring and put in the cage where their number is on top. Then the judge stands at the front and goes from the 10th place and discusses each cat and why they have chosen the cat for the final. They end up with 1st placement at the end.
post #15 of 23
That should be easy then.
In CFA they call the numbers for the finals then you put the cat in the cage with the number.
The judges did the finals in 2 parts at the last CFA show.
Cat 8-10 were first.
Then 7-1 were 2nd.
The judges also said why each cat made the finals and what makes them show quality.
Kim signed the ribbon also which was nice.
I wonder how Cleo will do in TICA?
post #16 of 23

Well, if Cleo finaled in CFA, I would imagine she will in TICA as well. I guess too, it all depends on how many other sphynx she will be up against. This is all very new yet for me, so I have no idea LOL.

We will see what happens in October.

Hi Jacky,

I know Edith Mary Smith, Al Walbrun, Harley DeVilbiss, Heather Roberts, Laura Cunningham & Jeff Roberts

The only one I can remember meeting is Harley - we worked together at the 2008 NZCF National. He was great to work with and was just wonderful with the cats. He is a BSH breeder.

We have Laura Cunningham coming to NZ in September!

Thanks Sam
I have no clue who they are.
post #20 of 23
You can always google, Jacky! I always google judges and find photos of them or their past show results or sometimes I find a little spiel about them!
post #21 of 23
I have seen pictures of some of them on the TICA website.
I tried googling some CFA judges but did not get much info on them.
post #22 of 23
When AB judges do their top 10, it depends more on how many males/females they have in the finals as far as if they can do it in one ring, or if they have too many males & not enough cages - they have to do 2 rounds of finals.
post #23 of 23
I should have looked to see what sex the cats were that finaled.
At the last show they the finals in 2 parts in almost every ring.
It was 8-10 first then 1-7.
