Some photos from the Supreme Cat show13 December, 2006
Here are a few photos I took at the Supreme Cat show in Birmingham (see previous post for more details of the show). I had to wait until the cats were out of their pens before taking the shots. I did make a note of whose cats they were, but unfortunately I’ve misplaced those notes – if this is your cat in the photo, please would you accept my apologies. As soon as I find those notes I will update this post with the owner details. Alternatively, please e-mail me if you this is your cat. And many many thanks for being so patient and answering my questions and also letting me stroke your beautiful cats!
My friend and I were bowled over by how gentle and cuddly this Siberian was – one of the best-handled cats we’ve ever met! He just snuggled up to his owner and put his head on her shoulders. We now both want a Siberian. In case you were wondering, yes, they look like Maine Coons, but there are differences. The one unseen difference is that Siberians lack the gene that causes people to be allergic to cats – most people who can’t have cats because of allergies can have a Siberian.
And here is the cat that you either love or hate, the Sphynx. Again, many thanks to these two Sphynx owners who allowed me to pet their cats. Contrary to appearences, the Sphynx is not a wimpy cat, it’s very muscular and has very thick skin.
