A few weeks ago, I attended a TICA cat show with a couple of friends. I love seeing all the cats and learning more about the breeds. So many of the breeders and owners were so nice and allowed me to pet their cats since I can't really see them that well.
Here's a Sphynx in one of the judging rings. There were a fair number of Sphynx cats at this show, but we didn't run across any outside the judging ring to pet. It was *much* quieter at this cat show than the one we attended at the Denver County Fair over the summer, so you could actually hear the judges talk and announce the winners!
This lady had a couple of Egyptian Maus. She let me pet this one, and he felt *just like Jewel*! It made me miss her, but it also made me smile to remember how soft she was.
The other Egyptian Mau she had escaped from his Sturdi and ran under the table a couple of times! Everyone was yelling, "Cat out!" when he escaped. They caught him pretty quickly, though. He escaped a second time later that day before we left, but they caught him right away that time. Silly kitty!
My wonderful friend, S, LOVES white cats! Every time I see a white cat or anything with a white cat on it, I think of her. She loved this kitty! Isn't he cute?
This black kitty insisted on crawling in my lap, but I didn't mind! He was a sweet kitty. I can't remember what breed he is, though.
The show was a lot of fun, and I can't wait to go to another (in January!).
According to Buster's profile, he is a sweet and friendly mancat who loves attention. He also loves to play. While he has tolerated other cats in the past, Buster would prefer to be your only kitty. The shelter believes he would be okay with calm, cat-friendly dogs provided a proper introduction process is followed. They also believe he would be fine with older, calm children.
Buster is 10 years young and still has a lot of love to give! He's a very handsome silver tabby. He has already been neutered, is litter box trained, and is up-to-date on his vaccinations.
You can stop by Angels with Paws, located at 2540 Youngfield St. in Denver, CO to visit him or call the shelter at 303-274-2264 for more information.

Last week, I was forced to go see Dr. Stabby with Carmine. I was crying when coming out of the litter box, and the Mom thought I was having a cystitis flare, so she booked an appointment for me to see Dr. Stabby when Carmine went to get his bloods and urine stolen.
Imagine my surprise when I was grabbed and shoved into a carrier!
At Dr. Stabby's they weighed Carmine first. He has lost 2.5 more ounces - down to 9 pounds, 10 ounces now. The Mom was sad about this, especially because she has been giving him appetite stimulants pretty regularly now. Then they took him away and stole his bloods and urine and expressed his anal glands.
Dr. Stabby's staff said they forgot to send Carmine's bloods off to the lab, so there will be no results until Tuesday (we were supposed to have them on Friday).
Then it was my turn. They put me on the scale and I weigh 14 pounds, 1 ounce. I love my food! That isn't so terrible, is it?
Then the Mom and Dr. Stabby talked about how I have been crying after using my box and also about how I've had some ::whispers:: diarrhea.
Dr. Stabby decided to steal some of my urine. Then she took a fecal sample from me! I screamed and screamed and screamed, but they took it anyway. I do not like being restrained!
They looked at my urine and fecal sample and then came back and told the Mom that I have a urinary tract infection and Coccidia. Dr. Stabby and the Mom decided it was best to treat Carmine for Coccidia preemptively so we won't pass it back and forth.
I am now on Baytril and pain medication for my infection. The Mom says the pain medication makes me a very mellow kitty! I purr more and louder than I usually do, too. Carmine and I are taking this stuff called Albon for the Coccidia.
Dr. Stabby and the Mom agreed it is time to try and lower my Prednisolone dose to 2.5mg (from 5mg). They are hoping this will be okay for my asthma and want to get me on the lowest most effective dose of medicine.
Dr. Stabby told the Mom she wants me back in three weeks to make sure the Coccidia is gone. Does anyone know how long that is so I can hide from her when the time comes??
I'm sure the Mom and Carmine will give you all an update regarding his test results later this week. The Mom is quite worried about him.

I was right! Carmine loves the Pro Plan True Nature Protein Crunch treats! Every time the bag rattles, he comes trotting over for a treat. He always knows when I've picked up the bag, and he'll even wake from a nap in another room to come get one of these tasty morsels.
But the real question is....did Milita like these treats?
YES!!! Milita also loves these treats! She is incredibly picky when it comes to treats, so it always makes me very happy when Carmine and Milita like the same treat!
