I had a one-day cat show, but it worked out to be a very long weekend! That’s because I live in southern California, and the show was in Livermore, near the Bay Area. For normal humans, that is nearly a five-hour drive.
For humans like mine, it is more of a six hour drive! She kept stopping to eat, to rest for a few minutes, to get gas. She can’t drive more than a couple of hours without stopping for some reason or another.
As you know I love hotel rooms! And my next favorite thing is getting to explore the hotel lobby and hallways on my leash.
I even got to run up and down the stairwell a few times! You can see it reflected in the window. It was fun until I realized that other guests used it. They were loud, and you can tell I didn’t like them much. What I did like was getting to visit the human who runs Mousebreath Magazine, and who is also the Cat Scouts denmaster! That was lots of fun! She had a very famous kitty who most of you knew named Skeezix, and she brought me a few outfits that belonged to him. I will do a modeling session with some of them very soon.
The next day was the cat show. The show hall was very nice, and the program booklet included a tiger striped pipe cleaner! Among the vendors, there was a company that made raw treats and they were giving out free samples. My human got me the salmon with cricket powder sample… yes, you read that right! Cricket powder. It was amazing!
The day started off really well — I got a final in my very first ring! Plus, I got visitors from the upper part of California: Christy Paws’ human from the east, and Savannah’s and Sage’s humans, and Spitty’s human from the Bay Area! I was so happy to share my cat show experience with them.
Even better, they not only got to see me getting judged in a ring, I got a final… and I was Best Cat! That was very exciting. I don’t get Best Cat in many rings (hardly any, in fact!), and it was even better that I had a cheering section!
At the end of the day, I finaled in every ring and got two Bests! So it was an amazing show for me. Even though it was a long drive, it was totally worth it.
All that judging and socializing, though — it was exhausting! I was glad to get back home to my regular bed.
