Tropical Cats

A couple of weeks ago, Mum and Dad went to a cat show in Townsville. It was the first one they have been to, and they enjoyed it lots.

This handsome kitty is Mufasa. He is a Maine Coon, and is pretty famous in the northern parts. He wins lots of awards. This is another Maine Coon, but we're not sure what his name is. Look at those whiskers!
This mancat is an Oriental shorthair. He reminds us of Luxor. This kitten-cat is Caesar. He is a Maine Coon too, and is only 6 months old! He is as heavy as Fui already, and Fui is a fat cat! Caesar won the best kitten competition. He is a very laid back kitty, and has a very gentle nature. His daddy is friends with my Daddy! They go to work together.
This is a Persian ladycat. She won her competition, too. I think it must be because she is a torti. Torties rule!:)
Mum and Dad talked about entering Fui in the household pets competition because he is such a cool cat, but decided to try and keep stressful situations to a minimum. They didn't even think of entering me. They didn't want to run the risk of having a nice old judge clawed to within an inch of her life. MOL!

Those are fun photos! Maine Coons have become very popular at cat shows in France too! The average "coon probably weighs a lot more than the two of us put together!

They are all gorgeous! We can not imagine how hard a judge's job must be to choose just one!

My mom went a cat show years ago, but hasn't been in a long time. It's fun seeing all the kitties and also all of the vendors who have lots of kitty toys and stuff for sale.

Some great pictures. I don't think my two moggies are ideal cat show material. One is a battered 17-year-old and the other has eczema! But I'd love to go to a show and see some classy felines.

Caesar is a real cutie pie.

I don't think I'd like to be in a cat show. I like my life quiet and calm and too many cats would probably upset me.
