Ok I will bring Wrinkles since she is from Janice.
BTW I met 2 guys at the show last weekend and they just got a kitten from Janice last month.
They named him Yuki.

You will be such a wonderful resource for Sphynxie. Will this be Konas second show?

I think you have the right idea. There really is a lot to absorb. Going on a trial run without having to worry about Nudie will make things easier on you, not to mention shadowing M2M will be a priceless opportunity.

I changed my mine and entered Wrinkles in the show also.
She will not beat the other sphynx though but Kelly will be able to watch me show a sphynx.
This is Konas first show.
She was exhibition in Nov.
I am not used to showing cats with fur lol

You are so sweet. It will be very good for Kelly to get first hand ring experience watching a Sphynx be shown. Wrinkles might not outshine the other Sphynx in the ring but she always shines here at SL.

I hope Kona does well Saturday and doesn't take any tips on how to interact with the judges from Cleo! What kind of grooming/key things you have to do when showing a Bombay?

Here breeder told me to give her a bath on the weds before shows with any shampoo with oatmeal.
You know what I am not sure what else to do and her breeder is busy.

Chamois cloths are supposed to be good to use because they get the coat buffed up nice and shiny, and get rid of the static. I see alot of people using them with the Aby's and whatnot.

I am going to get one.
Someone suggested darkening shampoo also.
The count is so low for this show.

Just got back from the show and meeting Jacky for the first time. It was great to see my first cat show and how things work. I wasn't able to stay long as my kids were sick at home and I had to get back. Jacky was very kind and helped me with a lot of pointers on showing. I saw Wrinkles and Kona being judged- very cool. Here are some pics I took:

I'm so glad you two were able to meet up. The shows sounds like it went very well and that you both enjoyed yourself.
Congratulations on the wins.
