I went to the Cats of Wisconsin (C.O.W.s) CFA cat show this weekend in Manitowac, WI. Mom was a little nervous, nearly half the entries in Premiership were Grand Premiers and Mom briefly wondered what we were doing there - especially when I didn't make the final in my first ring... sigh... she of little faith my mommy! I did great!
I behaved much better! I still acted somewhat scared and preferred to hide and rest under my blanket. No growling, but I still did some nervous meowing but less frequently and at a lower volume. I still didn't play with the judges or eat, drink, or use the litterbox. I did at least sniff my food/water bowls and checked out the litterbox. With the last judge I watched her toy and was thinking about going for it!
I made 3 finals too!
One All Breed judge gave me 9th Best Cat and 2nd Best Shorthair Premier.
Another All Breed judge gave me 10th Best Cat.
And the Shorthair Specialty judge gave me 6th Best Cat.
While she didn't give me a rosette, another judge said this was a very nice group of Premiers and said she felt some other cats beared mentioning - she mentioned 3 cats and one was me. So I guess I got an "honorable mention".
There were about 26 total cats entered in Premiership so I should get some points. I was the only European Burmese at this show.
The judges had nice comments on me again. One mentioned my eyes again, two liked my moderate body type (one explained to the crowd that the Europeans are supposed to look different than the Americans and was happy to see this in an EB) One liked me head/muzzle, one liked my even cream coloring, and one commented on how muscular I am (and told Mom I was really sweet - I liked her and she was the one I thought about playing with).
Mom is very proud of me! She e-mailed my breeder and she is thrilled too!
Update: I received 16 points toward my Grand Premier title at this show. The official show total entry count was 98 with 25 cats in Premiership and 10 Premiers. 75 points are needed to become a Grand Premier so 59 more points to go...
