Hi there! I am interested in showing my kitten Strider as a neutered pet. It'd just be for fun! I'm still unsure if I will actually do it so I'm just trying to learn now. TICA shows only come to my area once or twice a year and even then it is a 4 hour drive. I would never be able to travel all over the country attending shows. Would it even be worth it for me to show Strider just those one or two times a year? Or is it pretty much a rule to travel fair distances to attend shows? I really wish I could find some smaller scale shows to attend for fun. I can't seem to find anything like that though. Thoughts? Thank you!

Thought I'd add some photos of Strider, some are a little older than others. In my learning and reading about shows, I enjoy reading the breed standard and comparing what I read to what I see in Strider. There are some areas that I think a judge would take off points for and other areas I feel (I'm not only inexperienced but biased as well!) that he would do well in. What are your thoughts? Thoughts and criticism welcomed! While I love this kitten no matter what he looks like and he will always be a winner to me, if he isn't exactly show worthy, I probably won't worry too much about trying to show him. I just thought it might be a fun learning experience!

This is the only picture I have of his tail. (Dont' worry, the mini blinds on the window have been completely removed. Too dangerous!!)

Unfortunately, it is sometimes very difficult for your kitty to be "show ready" if they only go once or twice a year. Most show cats show quite a bit for 1 or 2 years and then retire. BUT if your guy enjoys shows and you keep him well socialized, it might be a great twice a year event for you two to enjoy together. He sure is cute!
