My First Cat Show

I've had cats for over 20 years, but I've never been to a cat show. There was a show in town and a unique cat was going to be there, so I decided to go. There were many beautiful cats and kittens, mostly Ragdoll, Persian, Bengals, and a few other breeds.  Here are some of the cats I saw.

And then there was the special cat that I was interested in seeing. This is Stewie. He is a Maine Coon who holds the Guiness record for being the world's longest cat.

You can's see how long Stewie is, but Stewie has a site with lots of photos and there's a video on YouTube with his owner.  He's a Very Long kitty!

All the cats were gorgeous. Many were snoozing in their cages, some were alert, and some were getting ready for the show ring. It was interesting to walk around and see all the cats, talk to some of the owners, and wish them luck. This was a small show so there weren't many different breeds of cats. I think I'd enjoy going to a bigger show to see some of the more uncommon breeds.

  1. Wow, what fun you must have had at the cat show. So many lovely cats (but not a s lovely as the ones at home, of course). And that Stewie is one long cat, MOL. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.
