July 25 & 26 Waco Texas!

All set up and ready for the show!  Ciaran was so good his first ring!  We did it!  He even placed 3rd Best of Breed.  Oh the Joy!  Second Ring a small amount of hissing nothing major we can do this!  Third ring he says wait a minute I don’t’ like showing!  So, we can’t get him into the cage.  Back to his little safe haven of a show cage where he hides under the pad and pretends he is a turtle and not a cat at all. Oh my.  Each ring became ever more difficult at one point my mentor had to assist in even getting him out of the cage to the judges table.  My heart was breaking my beautiful Silver boy hated showing and was never going to like it.  Leaving the 5th ring of the first day he was trying to scratch anyone who stops within striking distance of us.  At this point we made the decision to absent him for the rest of the day and the next day.
After a long conversation with my mentor, it was decided he was never going to like showing and that I should retire him from the ring and start my search for another show cat if I was sure that I wanted to continue.  Well of course I want to continue!  I want to show and eventually breed to improve this wonderful breed of cats.
Christie beat the bushes and I searched every cattery I could find.  Nothing, wrong time of the season.  It looked very much like I would miss the rest of the show season.  Next spring before kittens would come along.
Lo and behold August I receive a call from Christie a good friend of hers has a show quality kitten, alas not a silver one.  But on the other hand a judge could bring the cat from the West coast to Texas for me to pick up.   I took one look at the pictures of the soon to be Lord Baxter Rumbelow and I knew I wanted him.
