My friend, Laurie and I are going to go to the cat show in Indiana on Saturday. I'm not going to be showing, just going to check it out as I have never been to one before. Is anyone here going to be there?

I want to go to a cat show, but I don't think they have them here. How do you find out where they are?

You can take pics of cats being judged.
Just remember not to go near the judging cages.
You can also take pics of the cats in the benching area but ask the people first.
Some people get snotty if you take pics of the cats.
I see you are going to a TICA show.
It will be fun.

Went to my first cat show this past weekend. I had so much fun. I was like a little kid in a candy store! Ran into 5 or 6 Sphynx owners/showers. They were all so cute!!! There was even one that looked almost identical to Snuffie except for the fur on her nose. She got 1st place in one ring that I know of. I tried to follow them around to all the rings so I could see how well they did but kept getting deferred by my boyfriends son who went with me. I've finally got him liking the creme babies so I didn't want to take away his time from observing them. I took my camera but didn't see anyone taking photos so I didn't know if I could or not or I would have taken bunches! Finally saw an egyptian mau in person - I'm in more love with them now. Too bad my boyfriend is allergic to their hair tho. Oh well - another Sphynx for me, I can live with that! lol

The Sphynx Ladies I was talking too were sort of "clicky". I told them I was on the Lair and about Snuffie and they gave each other "a look". lol I'm wondering if they were previously banned from here or not. I excused myself after that, got the vibe I wasn't welcomed. They had beautiful kitties tho.

It was not what you said.
Some of the breeders are very rude.
I have met some of the nastiest people at the shows.

yes they were breeders - they were really nice at first tho and then shut down on me so thats why I think it was something I said. I've been over it and over it in my head - cant figure it out but I don't care really. I checked out their websites and I'm much better off with my current breeder anyhow. (not that i was shopping for one - just wanted to check them out)
