Hi,

My breeder asked me if I wanted to show Momo 1 time in the kitten class, before I neuter him. He is not even 3 months old yet, but there is a show close to my home that starts on his 5 month birthday. I purchased Momo as a pet, paid a very low pet price, and normally I wouldn't have any desire to show Momo., but maybe 1 time wouldn't hurt?

Below is a youtube video of Momo, and my question to everyone is do you think Momo is show quality based on his looks? and is it worth my time and effort to show him the one time? Momo is an SBT and he does allow himself to be handled, picked-up etc by strangers(at least at the vet the people were able to pick him up). Thanks for your input.

Added: My breeder allowed this once before last year, the kitten was from the exact same parents, just an earlier litter, and won 1st place over 79 other all breed kittens. This kitten was a female and had more golden color and more rosettes than Momo does right now. A second kitten from the same litter, just took home a final allbreed last week. This is what has me intrigued though. Momo's parents seem to be producing lots of good kittens :) momo's father just got to TGC status this past week as well.

Showing is so much fun...and you can still show him as an alter (neutered) later on down the road too :wink:

I don't have the bug yet, but my breeder did ask me, so she thinks he'd do well and knows how her cats develop. That being said its that important to me but for curiosity's sake I put this poll up.

If all goes well and have the extra cash I will probably do it, but if not, it's not the end of the world, Momo's already a star in my book. Thanks for the reply :)

It was just a one time offer, beyond that I think I would have to pay her to keep showing...I'm not sure about altered, but I know the entrance fee is very high for alters. Besides once altered I wouldn't want to show him. I may goto a show and learn the standards better just to have fun over the next couple of months.


Thanks :)

If he were mine, I would definitely show him. No question asked :) He is young, but has a lot of good qualities. If you want to show him in the first place, you better start when he is just kitten, it is a lot easier for him to adjust all those new smells, sounds and all those cats when he is young. Go for it!
