Well, the cat show was fun....
I got to see a cat that I had never seen before except in books -- a Singapura!. I have been interested in Singapuras for ages and I got to see one in "purr-son" at the cat show! I even got to hold him. His name was "Tumble" and he was so so so sweet! Singapura's are VERY small cats -- full grown they still look like teenage kitties. They have round heads and VERY BIG eyes! They have grey ticked fur with a bit of brown to it and white bellies. They are so pretty!
The one I got to hold was a really friendly one too. I got to snuggle his head -- I probably would have been in trouble if he had been for sale. :-) They had no Singapura kittens there - but they said that they would be at least $800! (Yikes!)
I also got to pat a Bengal kitty= = BOY they sure have pretty markings. The owner was very friendly too -- Sometimes the cat owners can be rather aloof and stuck up, but this guy was very nice. I remember the Bengals as just having spots (which is wonderful enough) but now they even have the other colour within the spots -- making their markings even MORE like their wild "cousins." It would be so nice to have a Bengal kitty. :-)
Another favourite of mine are Birman cats -- especially blues --- and they had a BEAUTIFUL "blue point" Birman kitten for $500! He was a sweet-heart and both my sis-in-law and I wanted him -- but again -- too much money (and my brother had told my sis in law that if she came home with a kitten he would leave her!) !!
