My little show cat

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,
this is Sundance, we recently purchased him and are going to start showing him. He was not purchased as a show cat, but the breeder said that he might do well in showing and gave us the okay to show him. He will not be in his first show until April.

Well here are some pictures of Sundance
You can not see his eyes very good, because of the flash


You can see his eyes a little better


Do you think he will be good in his first show?

He is totally adorable!

I am not big into showing, so I can't be much help here. I just wanted to say how cute I thought he was. *grin*

Best of luck and I sincerely hope you both enjoy your show experience! There are a lot of people here who show, so hopefully, they will come along and tell you more about it than I can.

Would you be showing him in the championship class or in the household pet cat class?

The judges will let you know if he has the quality to do well in championship. If not and he likes showing, you can always show him in the household pet class and have fun too.

Best wishes.

He is beautiful. Looks like his color is just starting to come in. You will have to keep us updated on how he looks when he is fully colored Did the breeder show his parents?

Just curious if you have his pedigree and how many of the cats in the background have either champion or grand champion. The reason is that the more cats that are "titled" the better chance you have in successful showing.


Hmmm you say his father is a flame mitted point and mother is a seal mitted point. Then the pedigree is wrong. Because the mother gives the color to the male offspring and unless she is a seal TORTIE point, you will not get a flame point male.

With that combo you get tortie points on the females and seal points on the males.

I wasn't to sure of the mother because she had a tortie give birth and a seal give birth two days apart and we got two from different litters so I think I made a mistake.

Oh ok, then the tortie point is the mother of your little flame point

Congratulations on your precious boy I took my grandson to the San Diego Cat show in Del Mar last month and had sooo much fun attending! Those cats just LOVE the attention!! I think that JC would enjoy being in a show.

Thanks he didn't even freak out when someone brought there seeing eye dog in and the dog got close enough to lick him. He did very good temperment at his first show. Eva made my signature! Good Job Eva!!!!

That next-to-last photo is adorable!! He looks like he's enjoying himself... he must be a very sociable sort; because if I were in his situation, I'd be freaking out--"All these people!! And they're looking at ME!! Ahhhh, get away, get away!!" But he's just snoozing there with his eyes closed, and a cat smile on his face...

Is that a 2nd place ribbon? Where's that thread where you told us how you did?

Well to see how I did was under the excited thread. No it isn't a second place ribbon that was the ribbon that they gave you to put your tags on if you get finals.
