I went to another Cat show with Wendy Symmes of Wildfire Bengals. It was fun. I tried to be as helpful as I could.
Here are a few photos:

Wendy just brought Moose and GG to the show. I am putting together a video of both of them.

This was Moose's first show! He did great! He won 4th Best Kittten Allbreed too!
Image

GG did well too. Remember her from the first show I went to?
This was her last time at the First in Flight show.
Image
This was her this time. She has grown a lot. She is sweet and exquisitely beautiful.
Image

Dawn (nukitty) and her friends Annie and Wes came to pick up "Rocky" one of Wendy's kittens at the show.
Image

But I was the the real winner....this is the prize I got when I got home!

Image

I am not a breeder but I sure am learning what a breeder does. It is a huge job and exhausting. I don't know how Bengal Breeders do it! Between taking care of cats and kittens, planning breedings and showing, I have no idea how they do it without completely collapsing. :D

Love your pictures as always :D

Thanks for the encouragement meemonkey! When I go to these shows I am kind of a helper for the breeder, but I am a spectator as a pet-owner too. I have a unique perspective.

It is so busy--and seems chaotic but there is an order that I am just catching on to. I think more Bengal owners should attend cat shows! :D

Moose is funny--this was his first show! Wendy was very proud of him. He was a good little traveler too--he took over the hotel room but behaved perfectly..what a sweetheart!

I feel the same way! I miss my own kitties when I am away from them. They aren't "show cats" but they are mine! 8)

Thanks Starbaby--it was a good adventure for me. I have video too...will post one and then a few more hopefully. Its so fun to watch the cats on the judges table. Some are so shy and some act like they are so at home.

I guess there is lots of preparation involved in getting a kitty ready to show. There are all kinds of things to do to keep them calm and to show well. From practicing just being in a cage to actually practicing being on the table with the sisal post etc. :D

Moose is an F4 so he does have a wild look to him. I just love him!

Thanks Charmain-- I am convinced that Bengal Breeders are as tough as nails and somehow have superhuman strength...especially if they show their cats regularly...

I don't know how they do it! I am in awe...again. :D
