    ok..im back....:mad:

    he was living up to his reputation of attacking the judges...( very sorry to them all)....

    he got a 2nd and a 3rd.. but 2 CNH..... so i think its time to retire him for a year to see if he settles.

    how did you all get on?

    Sorry to hear your lil man was not happy again today. Sometime a bit of time out and letting them mature a bit can help.

    We had a red card day with Krystal, she got her 2nd Grand, CC, BOB and first in the two side classes. Will post photo later, can't get mobile to connect with laptop at moment. I was not there, so am gutted I missed her special day. How did eveyone else get on, who won the Best in Show? Mobile signal poor where I am so I haven't heard as yet and am keen to find out.

    Sorry to hear that.
    Not all cats are suited to showing, obviously. Darwin was a nightmare at the TICA show I took him to last week, hissing, spiting and scratching. Yet at GCCF shows he behaves. I think it was the smell of other cats in the pens he was put in. At GCCF, where he stays in his own pen, he seems to settle better. I shall never take him to TICA again as he obviously finds it distressing.
    Hope he has calmed down now you are home?

    Indy got MC Cert, 1st Open (class of 1), BOC (Only one), 1st AC Short Hair, 2nd Birthday Class (Jan-June), 2nd Senior (2 Years +)

    Mabel - first ever show - MC Cert, 1st Open, 1st Rescue, 3rd Veteran (7 years +), 3rd Never Shown Before

    Indy was so much better than usual in his double pen, much more friendly and outgoing and flirty! he was an absolute star right up until the BIS started and some ****** opened his pen and was poking him!!! he got very distressed at that though calmed down with cuddles and fusses.

    He threw up on the way home and was still generally 'off' so keeping an eye on him

    Mabel seemed to be ok, not hiding or acting distressed... not the most comfortable or confident cat but well behaved and overall extremely pleased with her.
