  4. Way back when my mom was a little girl and a cat lover of the highest order, she went to this show in Minneapolis several years in a row. It brings back memories for her.

  20. Pawesome stuff, as Penny barks! A Cat Fanciers Cat Show, indeed! Rumour has it that Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, has been asked to be a guest speaker. Pawhaps, not!

    Penny's fictional human,

  21. There is a CFA show here the following weekend - Sept. 24! That is unusual as CFA doesn't usually have shows here, so I'll be excited to see how these shows differ from the TICA shows I've been to.

  25. Well, we have to say, it would be a fun event...but meowmy has to be at work that day...go figure.
    But it still would be a bit of a drive from here at any rate. You know, she has nevfur been to any cat show! Though she has been to a couple of doggy shows, MOL! (Way before she had any furs of her own...)

  34. I would be interested to see a cat show like that.

  35. Our mom and dad have attended cat shows, but we've never been shown. Only Merlin has the personality for it, and he doesn't quite match up to the Sphynx breed standard.

    Thank you so much for coming to my birthday celebration! - Merlin
