You are probably getting tired of hearing about the cat shows I do and ribbons and stuff, so this trip, I thought I’d tell you more about the hotel my human and I stayed in… mainly because I loved it! We had a bright, sunny window and our room was on the fourth floor.
And look how big it was! If you are wondering why the lamp in the background is crooked… I did that.
Plus there was this really nice cabinet, with the refrigerator on the bottom and the coffee machine and microwave (and me) on the top! This was a much nicer hotel than the place we stayed in last time we were in Ontario, and it was only a few dollars more a night. We are definitely coming back here.
At the cat show, I had impressive Somali competition! This big, handsome boy is BJ and he was a Grand Champion, Regional Winner and Breed Winner when he was an intact cat. Then he left the ring and had a breeding career, but he is retired now, so he is showing in the Premier Class (the altered kitties, like me). That does not mean he is old — he is less than 3-1/2. As you can see, he is lighter than I am. My color (in Somalis and Abyssinians) is called “ruddy,” and BJ’s color is a dilute version of ruddy called “blue.” I was next to him in every ring, and honestly, I kind of liked him. He is an affectionate, friendly cat and I know I will be seeing more of him in the future.
It was a two-day cat show, so on the evening of the first day, my human put my harness and leash on me and took me on a little adventure! Sometimes, after the day’s show, she changes clothes and disappears for an hour, and I finally found out where she goes! It’s this room, with all these big pieces of equipment! The room even has its own Mirror Kitty.
Most of the time when she is in here, my human is on one of these things. She did not turn it on while I was there, though — she was worried the noise would scare me. Is it really that bad?
I’m just glad I don’t have to play on these machines. I already have a good figure, and so does the Mirror Kitty.
You are probably wondering how I did at this show… there were 10 rings and I finaled in five of them! It was a very competitive show, so I was surprised at my accomplishment! I have just one more cat show this season, next weekend, and then I get to take a break for three weeks.
