Cat Shows

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I couldnt find any other forum to post this.

I have a 5 month old kitten and decided to enter him in a local HHP cat show. It's been years since I have done this, my mother used to take me with her when I was growing so I thought I would start with the new kitten with my 2 daughters.

If I remember correctly, she used to bring a pre cut cloth and safety pin it around the cage, a towel and litter box. I remember some people had really fancy cages with presewn covers for the cages, sparkles etc... some cages to me seemed to be a little too much. lol

If anyone could update me that would be great. I did google and only found how to prepare my cat for the show, wasn't much help.

Moving to Breeders Forum as those folks have all the experience and knowledge of this sort of thing.

I show my sphynx and can help you.
You need cage curtains.
You need a litter pan.
Are you showing in Tica,Acfa or CFA?

What are the cage diminsions? I think I could try and sew a cage cover.. maybe. I am in the process of moving and my sewing machine is packed. Besides I am not great at sewing anyway. Would it look too tacky with precut cloth around the cage?

I have not shown in TICA yet but will be in October.
Here is some info I got from the TICA entry form for the show I am going to.
Cage spaces are 45 inches wide.
Here is TICA website.
Look under showing cats.

I just pack 4 towels and drape them over the sides, bottom, top and back. You'll understand more once you have been to one show.

Before I bought my own cage for showing, I used to just get 5 matching large towels and clip them around the cage sides (inside) and one on the top, one on the bottom.

I can't show, and most of the cats I showed would rip the fancy curtains up, so I did it pretty plain - but picked colors to show them off depending on the cat color.

In TICA cage dims can vary depending by the region. In our region they are 36"L x 24D" x 27'H for a single cage. We don't have double cages. In another region we have showed in the cage was a double cage that seemed smaller. I can't recall what the dims are at the moment. Usually the flyer or summary sheet will give you the dims.
