Some Honest Thoughts About Cat Shows

Some Honest Thoughts About Cat Shows

It's incredible what a difference four years makes. Four years ago, I went to my first (and up until today, only) cat show. This was before I'd really gotten involved with shelters or the cat behavior business, so my perspective was a little bit different. My husband and I went because, aside from our love of cats, we just had to check out all the cat people gathered in one place, fawning all over beautiful and exotic kitties. And I will tell you, the cat show did not disappoint. We actually had a really fun time watching the cats be evaluated and judged, talking with several of the breeders about their cats, and (our favorite) watching cats attempt the agility course. But this weekend's cat show was an entirely different animal than the one I experienced back in 2012.
