Mom took us to a CFA cat show in Springfield, IL last weekend. Unfortunately, I did not make any of the judges' finals. We were a little disappointed, but that happens sometimes. Tonkinese are often considered the most difficult breed to judge, and natural is a difficult color for a Tonk too. However, I was a "fan favorite" and many spectators "ohh'ed" and "ahh'ed" over me. I'm a great ambassater for my breed.

Mom also entered me, Vinny, and Linus in Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) Halloween costume contest on CFA's Facebook. I'm a Harley Rider, Vinny is a Green Bay Packer, and Linus is a devil.

Wendy, I wish Mom and I knew... Only good thing is other exhibitors were disappointed too. Other exhibitors commented judges they hoped might place their cats didn't either. So... at least is wasn't just us.

Thanks WBS. We're going to an ACFA show this weekend, and hoping we'll have better luck there. We'll see what happens...

Unfortunately none of us won anything in the Halloween contest.

Concats on the DDP! So good to see one of us Tonks being recognized in at least one arena, and good luck this weekend too!
