1. I used to work with a woman who had 6 show cats...

on days of the shows she had to give each of them a bath. I cant even imagine!!

and, no doubt about it, Othello wins.

4. Cat shows are a hoot.

The cats are beautiful and the people tend a bit eccentric. I got to pet a Sphynx cat at a show; she felt like warm suede and purred a lot.

5. Lots of "Wilford Brimley" cats...


I never knew Persian longhairs were so popular.

I like the Maine Coon, the Bengal,...and of course, your Othello.

18. My sister has

3 himalayan cats.

This is Buddy and he is just the sweetest guy you'd ever meet.. blue lynx point



Rosalie and julie red flame points.



She fawns over her precious ones just as bad as I do over Othello. We both are just terrible..😻

We are a family that loves the kitties.
Grew up around cats. Don't know what I would do without a cat around. I do know it would be so lonely and empty without a cat to adore in my life.

17. Every cat

Is a little god or goddess in fur with eyes that shine like the sun in the night. Sacred children of Lady Bast..with a most beautiful and fierce goddess
Lady Sekhmet as thier aunt.

There are no ordinary cats,and each one is perfect.

8. Great way to spend a day. And The Blue Ribbon goes to Othello 🏆🥇!

I don't really like the extreme brachycephalic features on Persians nowadays, too extreme. But their fur is gorgeous.

I prefer rescued torties myself, but Othello is the jam.

11. those are amazing cats!

What a sweet little face that Othello has. No wonder you are crazy about him!

I don't think I've ever seen a cat with leopard spots like the one above.

19. Bengals are very active cats

If you get them as kittens, your can train them to walk on a leash. Otherwise you have to get them an exercise wheel.

13. He is a handsome guy!!!

I've been more drawn to dogs over the last few years, because I acquired a "step-dog" when I got remarried. I'm still a cat guy at heart, though.

Thank you for the show!
