Mom’s First Cat Show

Mom was gone all day Saturday. I mean ALL day. She left right after breakfast and didn’t get home until long after dark. Dinner was late and it was cold in the house — like only 65ΒΊ. What kind of a temperature is that for a kitty? You would think she would want to make it up to me by bringing me a fabulous toy or scrumptious treat, but no. Nothing. Well, unless you count the new pooper scooper she brought.

I can’t be too upset with her though. She went to Livermore, CA, about a two-hour drive from here, to see my friend Summer compete Summer and Janiss at the cat showin one of her cat shows. Mom didn’t get there until around 11:30 because she had to take care of some pet sitting clients before she headed to the show. When she got there, she walked around the exhibit hall to check out all the kitties and to find Summer and her human.

It was mom’s first cat show and she says Summer’s human was very patient with her, explaining how all the judging and points work. Later in the day, Savannah‘s Mom L and Spitty‘s human arrived to cheer Summer on, too. Apparently, Summer had a very good show and the visitors got to see her win a Best Cat out of ten excellent cats in one of her rings. The humans were all very excited for her. You can read all the details of how Summer did on her blog.

Mom said all the cats around them were getting groomed all the time. Summer is lucky that she doesn’t require as much as the long-haired cats like the Persians and Ragdolls.

Grooming Summer at the cat showWhen mom got home, after we had dinner, she told us all about her day and showed us the pictures. She said besides all the gorgeous cats she saw at the show, there were people selling toys and treats and all kinds of cat accessories. Hello! Cat toys and treats? And we got a pooper scooper? What is wrong with this picture? But it’s purple, you say? Hmph!

Wishing you a BEST CAT kind of day!

  5. I bet your mom had a great time at that cat show! I have to agree with you that the pooper scooper is not a great gift. Maybe next time you’ll get some treats!

    A pooper scooper is a disappointing present, but it sounds like your mom had fun at the cat show.

  7. meowmeowmans says:

    Your Mom is so lucky, Christy! Your mom bringing you home a pooper scooper reminds us of those souvenir t-shirts that say stuff like, “My Mom went to the Grand Canyon, and all I got was this t-shirt.” MOL!.

  8. Noodle says:

  14. Our mom did something just as bad. She went to a cat show a couple of weeks ago and claims she bought us a little prezzie, but we have yet to see one….!

    We bet it was fun for your mom to meet Summer and her human. Our mom has been to two cat shows this year and doesn’t really understand how all the scoring works or anything, but she still enjoys them.

  15. A pooper scooper…. Well, your mom has a practical mind at least ! How cool that she could meet Summer and her mom ! Purrs

  16. Erin the Cat says:

    Sounds like a great day for Summer and the peeps. Maybe they got you a surprise present and keeping it for Christmas? I’d still demand an interim one though, maybe some cream…

  17. Sammy says:

    Gosh – a pooper scooper was the only thing your Mom could manage to bring back home?? Well, at least she got to meet Summer and Summer’s Mom…….but I do think a present other than a scooper would have been a nice touch!

    Hugs, Sammy

  18. Jenny says:

    Wow! Summer is gorgeous! What kind of cat is she?

  19. We were so excited to read that your Mom got to see Summer and her Mom and Mom L and Spitty’s Mom! What a great day! So sorry you didn’t get anything πŸ™

  20. No toys or treats?? What da meow?

  21. Ellen Pilch says:

    I guess you have to forgive her being that she got to meet Summer. πŸ™‚

  22. A pooper scooper? That doesn’t seem fair!

  23. Cathy Keisha says:

    OMC! That’s worse than getting a litter box for National Cat Day!

  24. What a great way to spend the day…at a cat show I mean. I wouldn’t be dingy over a pooper scooper…even a purple one. Imagine Summer and Savannah were in the show. Sounds like California is the place to be.


  25. Annie says:

    How fun to see Summer & her human at a cat show! Summer is so cute! I love these pics of her in the cage and with the judge.

    Now about that poop scoop…I think you guys have a definite grievance!

  26. your photos of Summer at the show are just wonderful! I love her poise, she is so self-assured! You are so lucky to have attended! I have been to a few cat shows, but never one where I knew one of the cats in the show. How cool is that?
    Huge concatulations to Summer for such a good show!!

  27. How FUN was that?!? Way cool!!!

  28. We are SO jealous that you got to meet Summer…and her human!

  29. Summer says:

    I had so much fun seeing you at the show, and so did my human! I’m so glad you saw me at a show where I did so well… it doesn’t always happen.

  30. How cool that your mom got to see Summer. Oh yeah…and the humans too. πŸ˜‰
