Anyone going to this one at Ellesmere Port?

It's my first show and I am so nervous, so would be great to see some friendly faces or have an advice for a show "complete" novice. :lol:

Thanks Kimberley.
I will let you know how we get on.
If they don't like it - I'm not taking them again.
We will wait and see.

Really wanted to go - just as an observer not to show - Kara would have a judges arm off and Khan's just not quite up to the grade of show (as gorgeous as he is and has perfect temperment for showing..!) but am off to Madrid with the girls for a weekend away - booked ages ago and then saw it clashed - maybe next time..?

Would be great to meet up next time.
They are entered into the Gwynedd Cat Show held in Queenferry in July also (the entry date expires before Saturday so had to enter before my first show)

However, if they don't like it, they won't go to the second one.

Think the OH is looking forward to a piecefull day to himself - little does he know he will be cleaning the house from top to bottom seen as though the boys will be out of the way and not trying to ride the hoover or be swept up :lol:

Thanks for the good luck wishes. I hope that the boys will be ok.

The show in Queensferry is on the 18th :D would be great to meet up if you intend to go and have a look.

Well we are back. The boys are now fast asleep. Kato is hissing at Leon (when awake), but hope that will stop once they have had a rest

Well to the results

Kato won
Second in the open class and two seconds and one third in the side classes

Leon won
Three thirds in the side classes.

I am really pleased with my boys as it was their first time and were good considering. Shame the end of the day was marred by one judge seeking me out just to tell me not to waste my money on Leon and that Kato was a rat bag! :evil: needless to say he was the only judge not to place them!!

Upset me :cry: but didn't let him see. The way he said things were out of line. Thank goodness for my new Bengal buddies I found there. :D

Better luck next time.

:shock: That was very rude and unprofessional of that judge! Even if he thought those things, he had no right to be so rude. With the other judges placing them, that just shows this rude judge is an idiot! I personally would file a complaint with the organization who governed the show. That is just uncalled for. :x

Congrats on great results at the show! :D Those are fine results! Sounds like they were well behaved too. Don't let this discourage you from showing in the future. :wink: Just forget about that stuipid, inconsiderate person who calls himself a judge.

oh rachel that's awful :evil:
i wouldn't let him get away with that so that he could carry on upsetting people, especially a newbie like yourself trying to enjoy your first show! what was the problem? were the boys a bit temperamental?
whatever it was, he could have just put a note on the pen that they were unhandlable & spoken to you politely about it, there was no need to do that to you.
i would personally put a written complaint into the show manager & to the GCCF. at the end of the day, this is a hobby that we should be able to enjoy & he could ruin that experience for people.

anyway...i hope you & the boys had a fab day despite him & yay, you brought home some rosettes!!! :D
