Hi, this is Theo my 8 month old Bengal. He has a lovely nature and is very friendly so was hoping to show him next year. Will be a first for me, despite Theo being my thrid Bengal.
Would appreciate some input on whether sesoned 'showers'think he is worth a show or two!

Mant thanks!

I'm not a 'shower' so to speak, mainly the fact that Tigger gets quite stressed being around unfamiliar animals (and Nala with unfamiliar situations), he used to be okay with dogs, but ever since he was attacked by a friend's moggie (i say 'attacked' because Tigger innocently sat down on the ground and we didn't realise the moggie was sleeping on the couch until it was too late, before we could do anything, the moggie jumped at Tigger to defend her territory), Tigger's been wary of people smelling of cats, although he's never launched himself at anyone. even when he first came home to us, he wasn't sure of the neighbour's moggie who comes to visit, but the fact that she hissed at him, it made him unsure of his reception with other cats.

sorry, the point is, we wouldn't want to cause undue stress to our two, but Theo looks like a lovely boy with a great temperament and I'd like to see him at a show someday :) i've only been to one so far and it was a relatively small show here in Scotland (it was in East Kilbride) and there were only 2 bengals at the show!

Honestly, if he has the personality for it and you're interested in showing him, then you should go for it! :)

I would give it a go. I have only been to 1 GCCF show and 1 TICA show myself and really enjoyed them.

Besides showing off your cat you will meet lots of like minded people and the stalls are usually fab for kitty things.

I learnt a lot about Bengals by going to these shows.
