Hi everyone.:) AmberLee,RedHedd, and I went to a Cat Show today and we all had a great time.:) Here are some of the better pics that I took.

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid97/pda1050764da1c3ac9abe38df9ac09a28/fa1409a8.jpg
Here's a red American Curl and his name is Robert Redcurl. I voted for him for the people's choice award. He was a little shy but very gorgeous.:)

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid97/pd4748d4e490109cead34f1cce270838c/fa1409a6.jpg
Here's a female American Curl. She's only 6 months old and very tiny.

Here's a very fluffy orange Persian.

Here's another pic of him. Can you say fluffy?:eek:

Here's a very large gorgeous Maine Coon. I think he weighs about 20lbs.:eek:

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid97/pf5bfbb8f33363bbb89be453df6c54346/fa140999.jpg
Here he is again. He was a little shy and seemed to prefer his cage to being outside.

More pics coming up.:)

Here's a gorgeous white Maine Coon. I think his name was Moony. Just look at that bushy tail.:)

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid97/pbf6691a104ccc6224f4bb4fab16c5120/fa140567.jpg
Here he's going for the big stretch.:)

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid97/p0faa0d088dcef776d45783541d65eb75/fa140565.jpg
Here's a very scared young male Maine Coon. Look at that tail between his legs.:eek:

I've never seen an American Curled before...are the whiskers curled, too?!
Doesn't it bother the cats then?!
Robert Redcurl looks so sweet, what a beautiful coloring he has... I have to look for them in a cat book...

Thanks for sharing the pictures!!!:) :) :)

Great photos!
Did they allow you to take flash photos?
I didn't take any photos at the Cat Show I went to yesterday because I wasn't sure if they allowed it and I didn't see anyone else taking photos. (It was my first cat show)
I also saw a huge Maine Coon Cat (23 pounds!) and I was surprised to see that so many of the show cats had flabbier bellies than my own cat!
It was fun to see so many different breeds but it was nice to go home to my own cat who is just perfect to me!
It was also fun to meet with a couple of other Pet Talkers.:)

Great pics!!

I love the Maine Coons and the white one looks just like Ripley's mother. I haven't seen a solid white one since her almost 12 years ago.

I also love the pics of you three.

A local cat show is where I was first introduced and began my love affair with Maine Coons!!! They are just awesome!!!!

It was so nice to see you three PTers smiling faces as well!!!

Great pics!:) I would have to say my favorite is the orange Persian:D(my favorite breed);). I only went to a cat show once, I really want to go again. All the cats there are just gorgeous.

KAK! your pictures are terrific! I must say I did have camera envy as my digicam is so slow, clunky and lacking in features. You got some great close-ups especially of that large fluffy orange persian (we were standing at the rear of the ring).

I'm glad you got a few of the red Maine Coon and Robert Redcurl - he was my second choice for the People's Choice cat. I didn't notice if their whiskers or eyebrows were curled too but he sure was a handsome cat! As for this one:
http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid97/p0faa0d088dcef776d45783541d65eb75/fa140565.jpg
We all commented that we couldn't wait to see what RICHARD would have to say about this pic :rolleyes: :D

From looking at my pics it seems we took pictures of the same cats - I have a whole series of Moony's tail :rolleyes: :D

After seeing all those beautifully groomed cats, I came home and brushed my two very thoroughly. Mishi was tolerant and didn't need much. Mitzi wasn't quite as happy as I had a bit of de-matting to do. That new tool I bought works wonderfully and her fur feels so much nicer today - so soft and fluffy! The show inspired me to groom them even more often - we'll see how long that lasts :D

I will try to post a few hopefully today, but today's my last day of vacation before going back to work. I'm de-Christmasing my apartment and installing a new printer - a busy day ahead of me!

It was also fun to meet with a couple of other Pet Talkers.:) Yes they did. All of mine are flash photos. There was one woman though who yelled at RedHedd for taking a pic of her cat while it was being judged. She said that it had gotten loose the last time she showed it and she'd appreciate it if there would be no pics taken. She could have been a little bit nicer about it but everyone else there was extremely nice.

BTW the Humane Society was also there and they remembered me because I had adopted Sky from them in June 2003. AmberLee and I are going back to the cat show again today. We're meeting up with Wolflady and her husband and we're also supposed to meet Don Juan's Mom too. I'm going to bring some better photos of Sky to show the Humane Society staff.:) I've decided to leave my camera at home today. I think I've taken enough pics for a while.;)

There were lots of abys, but they were all cocooned in their crates or snuggled deep into their cat beds as it was SO cold so we couldn't get any good pics, but they sure were cute!

I just love cat shows even if I am not showing just to see all the great cats. And the vendors are always willing to take your money. (LOL) I have a show to go to the end of January, and I can't wait. It has been since October since I have been to one. I will be showing Jaxon, Sanuye, and Miss Q. Jaxon is going for his grand champion points and Sanuye (Sanu) and "Q" are going for winners ribbons. Where was the show at? I also take pictures at the shows. Just to remember what some of them look like and what the competion was. But mostly because they are beautiful cats. And are what each of the breeds are suppose to look like.

I was admiring the American Curl kitties when the pics of the fluffmaster Persian came up! Oh my god! I'd love to cuddle up to him on a cold night :)

When I saw the subject in your last post. The Orange Persian I thought it said the Orange Passion!! I was like 'what?'! ;)

Great pictures RedHedd.:D I had another great day at the cat show today. It wasn't as cold in the hall as the previous day but I also dressed much warmer.:)
I wish I had decided to bring my camera again because I got to hold an Occicat. We were talking to his owner about his gorgeous cat and he took the cat out and asked if we wanted to hold him. I was shocked and said of course. He was 15lbs but didn't feel that heavy to me but I'm used to holding large cats.:) A lot of the owners of the cats in the show seemed extremely nice and talkative today. Wolflady and her husband bought the same cat tree that I had bought the day before. The only difference is that it's a tan color instead of blue.
The Humane Society people weren't there today so I couldn't show them Sky's pictures.:( I did ,however, show them to one of the judges and a couple that owned an orange Persian. They all thought he was gorgeous and that he looked like a Ragdoll. He may also have some Maine Coon in him too. If I ever decide to show one of my cats in the household pet division, it would be Sky.:)

Great pictures for both you. They always hace such great looking kitties at the shows. I am glad to hear that everyone had a good time. The one that I went to didn't have a peoples choice award, that would have been fun.

It sounds like almost everyone was friendly too, of course there is one in every crowd.;)

KAK you will have to post pictures of your new cat tree so we can ooo and aww over it.:)

Thanks for sharing.

Great pics! I love those big Maine Coones! There's nothing better to me than a big hairy cat to love on. :D

Can't wait for the next one here in Chicago. If I remember right, I think it's in March? I'll have to go check it out so we don't miss it. ;) :D

Yes, there were lots of Burmese, for whatever reason we didn't get pics of them. Many of them were absolutely gorgeous!

I'm taking a camera class later this month, but what a disappointment. :( pout :( :o

I see Pichu's face :D, the only difference is that Pichu has a very small patch of white and no mittens. He also has the "dirty mouth" (do you see it?)

Wow! Some GREAT pictures!! I just could not choose a favorite! They are all gorgeous! I lean toward the Maine Coon because it is a large cat but then when I'm blessed with snuggles from my tiny, petite, 6 lb Stubby I love the little bitty everything!!
