    can anyone tell me please if you get a different end result when blow drying a long hair cat as opposed to towel drying? My cat is terrified of the hairdryer despite patient gentle training so now I only towel dry but his breeder says before a show I should dry with a hairdryer. Will his coat look very different if I towel dry and brush rather than hair dry? I'm not putting him through stress, shows are for fun and his wellbeing matters more to me. Just interested really! Thanks.

    Is he showing as a pet or a pedigree? If ped, then he will need to be blow dried or air dried with lots and lots and lots of brushing out as he dries. I have one who's terrified of the dryer, so I got him a large dog crate which I drape with towels. In he goes with the K9 cage dryer clipped to the door. This is a very quiet, gentle dryer, and he's happy to sleep in there for a few hours while he dries. He went from being terrified to actually putting himself in now after his bath.
