Anyone going?
I'm trying again :roll:
Kato is in with the Bengal neuters and Leon is with the pedigree pets.

If anyone is going, would love to meet up - I'm also helping hand out rosettes so will be able to have a good look round this time - with a few kitty cuddles from my two in between :wink:

Will hopefully post any results tomorrow - barring me going to bed early again. :lol:

I know that there a lot of Bengals at this show so not getting my hopes up :cry: - but have my eggs in different baskets :wink: seen as though pets are judged on temperament let's hope that Leon turns into the little love big that he is at home :wink:

I'm sure they will be :wink: I can tell you that the judge in question will not be handling either of them so that is good news :D

I think that the pet judges are big softies themselves, so Leon will be in his element :wink: I read that one judge gave a pet first before another as it appeared to "hug" their steward. I have been teaching Leon these tricks :wink: he will hug and butt me like there is no tomorrow but how will he be with strangers??

Only time will tell :wink: not sure if it is right for me to be nervous though :lol:

That's definately the right attitude to have :D You'll see some beautiful cats there but your own are always the most special :D

At Belle's first show she was a hissy growly monster but the judge said that she was a feisty little girl with a lot of character :D

Well I'm back, but I'm sure the show world is trying to tell me something :roll:

firstly,lovely to meet you Tracey and having a catch up face to face :D

where do I start?
Had to remove Kato at about 11.30. He was shaking and was very growley, hissing and spitting. When I got to him (had popped to Asda 5 mins walk away as you have to leave the hall) and was able to give him a cuddle he calmed right down. But the damage had been done and I had to take him out if the hall. When we got outside he was fine and when home (10 mins away luckily) he was purring his head off!! Left him in safe hands of OH and went back.

Here's the good news :wink:
Leon came second in his open, got third handsomest male and third in radius. He was a good boy. Only missed out on first in the open as he was a little nervous and the first wasn't. So really pleased with him.

Not taking Kato to Chester show but will still take Leon. Stressing my babies out is not part of the plan.

Got Leon home and they were great, no growling seen as they had been apart.

Roll on bed time for me :lol:

Well done Leon :D You must be very proud of him.

What a pity Kato didn't enjoy his experience but at least you were able to take him home away from it all so he could calm down :D
