....unfortunately I havenít got any yet. But just in case
youíre wondering, I have absolutely nothing against pet
moment however, I am extremely busy, work wise and on the
home front, so that I donít want to spend the little free
time that is left for myself and the family at pet shows.
What is more, all my cats are over a year old and not at all
used to going to shows.
think that a cat should get used to shows from an early age
in order to feel comfortable there. My little pedigree
Burmese cats are not used to going to shows, that is why Iíd
rather let them stay at home.
does not mean, however, that I am less responsible, in
letting my cats mate, than a breeder who does go to shows.
On the contrary, I am doing my best! For example: according
to the cat association a cat should not litter more than
three times in two years, but I have heard of breeders (and
ones that go to shows) whose cat has had four litters in two
years. Of course this is an exception, but it just proves my
point, that, cat shows or not, the responsibility lies with
the individual breeder.
Finally, I would like to mention, that in a few years time,
when the children have grown up and our veterinarian praxis,
i.e. my husband does not need my help to such an extent, I
will certainly go to pet shows, because I intend to start a
show career with my future breeding tomcat. Maybe in the
near future one can also find me and my kittens at a show
somewhere near our home.
Finally, allow me to conclude with the following verse about
