In his element...
Radar loved showing! He was in his element. His favorite part was climbing up the scratching posts, which the judges found very entertaining. His least favorite part was the car ride there. There weren’t many Household Pet Kittens showing, so he made the final round by default. But at the end of the weekend, he ended up placing Best Household Pet Kitten in 10 rings, and 2nd Best Household Pet Kitten in four rings. More important than his awards, was the fact he genuinely enjoyed showing and the attention he received from everyone there. We are looking forward to his next show, I just need to get him used to riding in the car between now and then!
Yesterday Radar got his first full-on bath in preparation for his first show this weekend. He did not enjoy the bath, but eventually forgave me. His fur is so thick and long it took forever to blow dry him. This morning Radar was featured on Good Morning Texas during a clip advertising the cat show. He did so well. I hope it’s an indication of how he will do at the show. Fingers crossed!
