The Perfect Little Thing

I do not think there is a question about who stands out here!
My human went to the San Diego Cat Show over the weekend. My breeder was showing a kitten. I think you can guess which one was hers!

She knows all the good poses.
She was the most perfect little thing, and at six months already an experienced show cat. My human was bummed that she had to take photos from so far away, but she was late to both rings she attended and wound up behind the chairs.

The ear tufts on this kitty were amazing!
There were lots of different kittens competing. One was this Maine Coon.

This one was not a bad show kitty either!
And this Russian Blue kitten.

This is a face that breaks hearts.
But, as often happens when there is a Somali in the ring, people gasped in awe when she was brought out of her cage. There are not that many Somalis around, and humans are always enchanted by our beauty, especially when they see one this special.

She was so patient during it all.
I think the judge was a little bit in love with her too.

You can see that her sweet nature shines through.
In the other ring my human attended, there was a second Somali kitten — a red boy.

I think bad thoughts were going through the boy Somali’s mind while the girl was being examined.

Her sweet, outgoing nature was actually bred into her... along with her looks.
Here she is, admiring her ribbons. Only moments after this shot was taken, she was swept off to the airport! She is going to live in Russia, where they really need high quality Somali cats like her. The woman who flew out for her talked to my breeder for four years before she agreed to let her have one of her cats. I hope she had a safe flight… although I get the sneaking suspicion that she pranced through customs and charmed TSA. My breeder was so sad to see her go. She was very attached to her — but she also wants to make sure the Somali breed thrives.

Do you think I am trying too hard?
My human asked if the kitten and I share any ancestry, and my breeder had to think really hard. We do, but it is several generations back. Still, I think there is a resemblance. Do you?
