so little bucca has a teeny little bump, right on the very tip of his tail,

I asked the vet about it and he said that it is common and nothing to wrry about

am i right however in thinking this disqualifies him from showing?
Im not sure at this stage whether i want to show him but i am curious...

Some bumps may vanish with time, depends on the cause really.

How long has it been there? Has he trapped it lately?

Showing - It would be considered as a tail fault and marked down accordingly.

well he has only been home for a few days and i noticed it straight off.

the vet says it is just a bone bump

i take it the penalties are harsh for things like tail bumps?

I don't know about TICA shows, but in FIFĂ© shows a tiny tail bump like that is only penalted in cats that aren't neutered. In neuters/alters it shouldn't have any, or at least much, effect on judgemet.

I was told that in TICA, it was ok in the alter or household pet classes, but not the other classes. I'm sure it could still knock a few points off, but wouldn't be a disqualification.

I took Jovan to his first show this weekend which is where we found a small bump on his tail. He is an alter in the kitten classes.

Saturday we got nothing His tail fault and his ears are why

Sunday (today) we got nothing until the last 2 rings then got 5th for colour

It depends on the judges, We have NO idea how jovan got the fault in his tail it wasn't there when he came home but it happened its not the end of the world he is a still my beautiful pet.

You can only but try but be prepared not to get anywhere when the fault was mentioned i didn't think we would get anywhere at all i was well chuffed when we got anything.

Get feedback from the judges thats how i know what was stopping Jovan getting scored. Oh this was a TICA show

Good luck

not sure if im imagining it but the bump actually seems smaller now than it did when we first got him home... maybe it will grow out...
