Cat show!

A frou frou kitty

An Abyssinian

A Maine coon

And my own personal show favorite, a Tonkinese with the softest fur imaginable.


  1. Ooo! So beautiful! I think cats are among the most beautiful creatures. It's so hard not to want to scoop them up and cuddle them. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Pretty. I'm partial to the Maine coon since that's what my previous cat was.

  3. How pretty! I've always wanted to go to a cat show to see the different breeds because I'm afraid I'm not as educated about cat breeds as I am about dog breeds. Great pictures.

  4. That abby is beautiful! I grew up with a cat that was an abby/tabby mix, and I've always longed to own a pure abby since. They're so elegant.

  5. The tonk is gorgeous, but as the owner of a tonk I guess I might just be a tad biased. I love them.

  6. Dare I ask how much a pet quality Tonkinese costs these days? Not that we can get another cat until our Russian blue is gone (and he's not even eight), but I was most impressed with how sweet and friendly and silky the Tonk was.

    Jeane, I'd never seen an Abby before and they really appeal to me.

    Stefanie, my husband's older brother raises Maine coons. I do better allergy-wise around shorthaired cats, though.

    I'd watched dog shows on TV, and I grew up going to horse shows, but this was our first experience with a cat show. I think we'll be going back . . .
