We may have to step back from the show hall for a couple of months due to medical issues for one of Linda's feet and her back, but we will be back in the show halls as soon as possible... definitely for the BIG CFA show in Del Mar in Jan 2023. This is the biggest show in the western US held every January and hosted by the San Diego Can Fanciers cat club. Mike is President of the club. Linda is Treasurer. It's not really a "cat show" so much as a "cat EXPO". Club members are just now starting to make plans for the show but if you want to check it out, go to www.sandiegocat.org. It's not like any cat show you've ever been to.
We will be taking Jasmine to both the CFA show on Jan 14-15 in Ontario and the big CFA show in Del Mar on Jan 28 & 29. If you are able to come to either of these shows, please look us up. We would love to meet you.
Jasmine will be showing in kitten class. The Ontario show will be her first time at a show, however we expect her to do really well. Jasmine is such a player! If it moves, she's going to chase it. ... Like even when I'm sitting on the sofa or the bed watching RV and I wiggle a toe. The next thing I know, she's pouncing on my foot. Once she gets over her fear of the show the first day (and most kittens are a little overwhelmed at their first show), she should do great. She's also a food hound. She begs for a taste of whatever we're eating any time she hears the clank of the silverware against a plate or bowl. Mike likes to have a bowl of ice cream at night before he goes to bed and Jass knows it. As soon as he sits down to eat the ice cream, she's right there begging. He always lets her lick the bowl when he done. He's still teaching her that she needs to wait her turn... a task that has turned into quite a challenge.
Curl Essence Phinneas... Phinneas did it again!
I'm waiting for a new photo of Karen and Phineas with his awards from the TICA show in Tennessee last weekend on 10/30-31. This was a much bigger show, Karen and judges were glad to see that Phineas was back to his old self, playing with the ribbons on the cages and climbing the rope posts on the judges' tables. Phineas is now Champion Curl Essence Phineas McCurl.
Here's some of the judge's comments..."Practically perfect" and loved his body He also took 1st place from Jamie Christian and late another 10th place.
We are exceptionally proud of 2 new exhibitors showing our little red and white tabby boy they named Curl Essence Phinneas (He was called Timmy on our website). Phinn is just 4 months old and went to his first show in Indiana last weekend. Check out the ribbon and finals. Each little tab is a final for a different ring.
Here are some of the comments from judges:
"Phinneas was a perfect example of a Curl",
"Everything a Curl should be"',
"He will be great when he grows up!"
Kudos to Karen and Phinneas...
We couldn't be prouder and it's really great to have one of our Curl showing in a region that doesn't see many Curls. When we sell a kitten that will be put in the show halls, we try to send out best. In this case, we even asked Grace Ruga (founder of the breed) to come over to our home and evaluate several potential kittens.... this was Grace's first choice. So big thanks to Grace for picking this kitten and to Karen and Tom for showing him.
Showing in Canada
Both GC Curl Essence Sunny of Curlfolie and CH Curl Essence Lexie of Curlfolie are currently showing in Canada in a Canadian cat registry. The Canadian shows are much harder to get to because they are so far apart... So, big Kudos to Kathleen for showing these two pretty kids.
These two photos are of Lexie. Lexie is seal torti point. The bottom 2 are Sunny. Sunny is red tabby.
If you have any interest in showing your kitten at a show, please let us know. We will make sure you have a kitten that will not only fit into your family like a well worn glove, but one that you can have fun showing with your family.
Showing cats at cat shows is a great way for the family to bond and a great hobby for the kids. Let us help you get started if you are interested in sticking your toe in the water. Judges love to see newbies at the shows, and the especially love seeing Curls at the shows. We are always hearing from judges that they would like to see more Curls in the show halls.
