Hi everyone.:) I have some bad news and good news. The bad news is that the San Mateo cat show that was scheduled for March 19th and 20th has been cancelled.:( The good news is that the Pleasanton cat show scheduled for April 2nd and 3rd is still scheduled.:D It seems like a lot of the shows have been cancelled in our area for some strange reason. So who's up to going to the Pleasanton cat show?

Not that you had a lot of doubts about that, right? :p ;)

Going to a cat show, whoooopeeeee!

Count me in!!! That's a bummer that the San Mateo show was cancelled, because that one was supposed to be a really good one, right? :(

The Pleasanton one will be fun though. It seems like forever since I've been to one there! Yay! I can't wait! :D

Karen,

I think David and I will still come up for a visit. Maybe we can go to Los Gatos instead??

:D :D You're definitely welcome any time! ;) Los Gatos is a lot of fun, so we can do that.

Plus, that means you can come up for the Pleasanton show in April too...so 2 visits! ;) LOL Yay!

I'm bumping this thread up again since it's getting close to being April.:) I just looked up the cat fanciers show times again and so far this is the schedule for the rest of the year for Northern CA:

April 2&3- Pleasanton

June 11&12- San Jose- Santa Clara County Fairgrounds

Sept. 3&4- San Francisco

Nov. 5&6- San Jose- it doesn't say where yet

Nov. 18-20- I guess this means it's 3 days - San Mateo- It's the International Cat Show- This would probably be a great one to see.


So who's still up for the Pleasanton show?:)

I also looked up TICA show times and they aren't in our area. I think the closest is Sacramento.:(

David and I are coming up for the April 2 & 3 cat show!! Is anyone else interested in coming with Karen and I?

Yay!! Only 2 weeks away! :)

count me in!! my first time meeting....it will be very awkward to finally meet a few of pet talkers! I'll go on april 2&3 with one or two friends and either of days works better for you guys.

but I need some resources before I go! :)
# the address or what site can I find about it?
# $ of ticket?
# how do we usually meet up each other? we don't know each other! *yeeks* ;)

can't wait...hope somebody remembers me too!

I'll see if I can take work off on Saturday. Sunday Miko has obedience class in Oakland from 2 - 3pm, so I'm not sure if I'd be able to go on Sunday, unless we meet a few hours before 2, or stay after 3 lol...

So has everyone decided which day would be better? I just wanted to remind everyone that Daylight Savings Time begins on Sun. April 3rd so we'll lose an hour. We set the clocks ahead one hour on Sunday at 2am.:) I hate losing the hour but I'm looking forward to more daylight in the evenings.:)

saturday AND sunday is fine with me. I'm waiting for all of you to pick out the day, and where to meet before we glibber off to cat show! it'd be fun....

ps] does anyone sign?

AmberLee
03-21-2005, 04:15 PM
I took a class in SEE (Signing Exact English) ... oh, my, almost 20 years ago. I'm rediculously rusty, no doubt.

Looking forward to seeing you at the cat show.

Either day works for me, I think Sunday would be a bit better though...

Going to a cat show is great fun!

*yikes* :eek: SEE is no longer around! that was my first language and now MANY, MANY rather ASL (American Sign Language). SEE is more old-fashioned. and I even can't understand a few of people who signs SEE myself!

anyway, you took a class is a good thing, let's see what you remember! :D :D

I don't think Saturday will work for me. It is the day of my former co-worker's memorial service and my boss needs me to work that day to cover for the people going (although I wish I could go too.. *sighs*). :(

I can see if I can make it on Sunday. What time will you guys be meeting at on Sunday?

krazyaboutkatz
03-21-2005, 11:08 PM
So far either day works for me. We really need to hear from Wolflady and NoahsMommy because I think they're planning on going as well. I also pm'd RedHedd to see if she was able to go but I haven't received an answer yet.

Edit: Quoted by Redhedd: "I'm still planning to go. Saturday afternoon MIGHT be better for me, but I'll go with whatever date the majority decides on." I just noticed that she replied.
:o

NoahsMommy
03-22-2005, 01:13 PM
Personally, I'd think Saturday would work better because we'll need to leave Sunday to go home. But, we could do the catshow in the morning and David and I can leave that afternoon.

Let me talk to him and to Karen and I'll get back to you all.

:)

well...anyone? it's getting very close. why don't we go ahead and say 2nd, saturday. seems work for most of us. so...krazy, since you wanted this, why don you tell me where to meet .. in pleasanton or near you? (santa clara).. I really want to go so I can get a taste of cat show! (dog show was awesome!) hear from you soon?

AmberLee
03-25-2005, 03:36 PM
KAK and I usually car-pool together especially on the out of town ones, so I'll be presumptuous and answer for her.

I'm not sure which direction you are coming from. Make it easy on yourself: we can easily make more room in my car (or hers if she's driving, I guess). I'm not planning on buying any cat furniture this time, so there shouldn't be a problem over room in the car... When we meet at the cat shows, there is usually a ring number 1 at least, so we agree to meet there (or whatever the lowest number is, if they get creative when they number!)

Feel free to PM KAK or myself. Are you in the south bay?

Tonya

I'm going skydiving for my birthday in Santa Rosa on the 2nd...so I'll be driving through Pleasanton Saturday. We're staying the night in SF, so I'll be driving through again Sunday morning. So...let me know what time and we just might be able to make it!

krazyaboutkatz
03-27-2005, 02:36 AM
I'm still waiting to hear back from Wolflady. NoahsMommy will be visiting her and I know that they also want to do some shopping. I pm'd her so hopefully I'll know more by Monday. We really do need to set up a time and date very soon.:)

NoahsMommy
03-27-2005, 03:08 AM
I think Saturday will be best for me...I don't want to worry about timing on Sunday because we're going home that day. :)

Can't wait!!! :) :) :)

03-27-2005, 01:48 PM
I hope you guys have fun! Take lots of pics for me. I don't think I'll be able to make it to this one. :(

03-27-2005, 06:15 PM
Okay, then it sounds like we'll all be going on Sat. April 2nd. I think the cat show opens at 10am and it usually closes around 5pm but I'm not sure. When will everyone be arriving on Sat.?

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again and also I'm also looking forward to meeting Gina too.:D Gina is going to meet me at my place and then AmberLee will pick us up so we'll be carpooling together. I don't know what time we'll be leaving yet.

sandragonfly
03-27-2005, 08:26 PM
krazy, it wasn't for sure but since I'm closer to you than amber, I'll meet you at 10, 11, 12, or 1 or whenever everyone is there! just say the time. hope that is ok with amber too. I think it'd be nice to be a the cat show all afternoon. a lot of cats to watch, eh?

so far it's six/seven of us, right? I'm exciting! my friend probably comes if the another one can't. oh, I'm still waiting to hear from someone to tell me where to get tickets faster.. have you guys already got one? if you're planning on get one, can you get it for me? it would be easier for me and of course, I have to pay back :) see you soon!

sandragonfly
03-27-2005, 09:12 PM
hi again,

nevermind, I finally got an email back from someone. you pay tickets at the door, 10-5PM. oh. :)

krazyaboutkatz
03-28-2005, 11:38 AM
AmberLee, Gina, and I will be leaving around 1pm on Sat. April 2nd for the cat show so we'll get there around 2pm. I hope that this works for NoahsMommy, Wolflady, RedHedd, Tonya and whoever else may be there.:) I can't wait!:D

03-28-2005, 02:08 PM
Hey there everyone. Sorry I'm late at posting here, but I wanted to confirm that yes, Kelly and I can make it by 2pm on Saturday. That's the best day, since she and David will head back to LA on Sunday.
She'll be coming late night Friday night, so we'll be able to sleep in and then we're planning on going up to Los Gatos for a visit to Purrsnickity. From there, we'll make our way up to Pleasanton to meet up with everyone at 2pm.

Also, I believe the possibility of dinner was mentioned. We can figure that out when we meet. :)

I'm looking forward to it. I've been so drained physically as well as emotionally lately...:(
**hugs**

I just did a MapQuest for the directions -- LOL! I am CLUELESS about the East Bay and ALWAYS get lost once I'm on the other side of the Bay Bridge. I have good intentions of getting there around 2:00!

krazyaboutkatz
03-29-2005, 12:10 AM
Yeah!:D I'm so glad that Wolflady, NoahsMommy, and RedHedd can also make it. We're all going to have a blast.:D I'll be bringing my camera so we need to take lots of group shots.;) Too bad BC Blondie won't be able to make it.:(

Karen, I'm so sorry to hear that you've been so physically and emotionally drained.:( We'll all be there to lift your spirits and cheer you up.:D {{{HUGS}}}

My biggest problem will be if I get to yakking too much and miss the highway exit!

Getting excited!

I wonder if this is the cat show that combines with a book sale? I do enjoy that one.

Thanks Tracey:) I'm really looking forward to it! Yay! Plus, since there won't be any men tagging along, we'll be able to stay at the show for as long as we want! :D LOL LOL LOL:p

Kelly, you'll have to keep my spending in check since Aaron won't be there to say "NO"!

Oops, I'm not sure if this is the one with the book sale or not. I hope so, but don't want to get anyone's hopes up.

Ruh Roh. Sometimes I really thought the only thing keeping WL from bringing home another furster was Mr. WL. :eek: :p :eek:

Who wants to bet we'll witness a fur-baby adoption this weekend?


Woooohoooo!

Woooohoooo! LOL I was just thinking the same thing AmberLee.:D If there are any cute white cats or grey cats up for adoption then I think that there just might be another furkid at the Wolflady household.;)

I'm getting very excited. I hope that the weather is good and that we all have a great time.:D

I couldn't tell from their website, how much is admission anyway? Must make sure I bring enuff $$ (yes, I'm on a budget too). I will be looking for a deal on a water fountain for Mishi so I can have my bathtub back :rolleyes:

Dinner too? Oh goodie! Must bring more $$!

I'm home!

what a little weird day for me because I've been on petalk for three years and never met one of pet talkers until today!

it was fun meeting all of you even though it was a little quiet for me. cat show's interesting!! very different from dog show...(of course) but it was absolutely elegant! all are so spoiled with gold bowls, pinky fluffy tents, treated with mushed fish cans, purring with their squishy eyes... "every pet is special but I'm special!" :D

I'll help you guys with more pictures in "Pictures From The Pleasanton Cat Show" thread when I get to A computer with uploading enabled, see ya there! :D
