Hi All,
I have a question, we will be taking Atlas to his first cat show in July, we have never ourseleves been to one. What should we bring? what should we expect? how early do we need to arrive? We have been practicing his stretches every day so he goes limp alost immediatley, unless hes in his play mode lol. Ooops I guess that was more like a FEW questions hehe.

if you are planning on showing them yes:) No it doesnt hurt them, some cats will become very wiggly but if you do it every day they get more used to it, I need help in preparing for his first cat show though!

Hi
I have just got my bengal kitten Luli and i want to also take her to shows i have never shown before did visit yrs ago but just to look.
I have been looking for information on showing, i haven't got her reg no yet but was told i don't need it on my first show, only picked her up yesturday and she settled in wonderful she purrs like mad when i cuddle her and has a lovely temp, just getting her use to my Oriental Bella whos 9yrs and my Siamese Kia shes 8yrs lots of hisses and growls but i'm sure they will be great friends.
Any advice you could give me please feel free.
Regards
Jo
