Yesterday was a travel day for me — I flew up to Portland for the CFA International Cat Show! That was fun, except I did not get to spend anywhere near enough time out of my carrier and on my leash. And when I did, I had to stay with my human and not wander around. She thinks I bother the other travelers. Isn’t that silly? I’m sure they are all thrilled to see me!
From the airport, we went directly to the show hall. Apparently I am not the only celebrity there! Moshow is also appearing, and my human says there may be a surprise or two!
The reason we went straight to the show hall is because we were asked to set up the Pet Me Cat section at the CFA booth. It turned out they weren’t ready for us, but my human didn’t mind. She was still able to set up my benching area early. It was easy to find because of all the breed banners!
My area is right next to the Somali breed booth. The secretary of the Somali breed council is located in the Northwest, so she spent loads of time getting everything set up long before we even arrived.
If you chuckled a little bit when I referred to myself as a celebrity… check this out! See? I really am a celebrity, at least in the world of Somali cats! I know lots of people will have fun visiting with me this weekend.
The coolest thing about visiting the show hall the night before the show is… I was the only cat there! The only cat at the CFA International Cat Show — isn’t that awesome? I got to wander around a lot on my leash. And as usual, I went places I probably wasn’t supposed to go to, like this room with all these crazy motorized chairs that some of the exhibitors drive around in. Plus I got lots of admiration.
Finally, we checked into the hotel! My human is excited because there’s a big area for her to do her dance exercises. I’m excited because… it’s a hotel room! Plus I need my rest because this is going to be a very busy weekend!
