Congratulations on your first show. Joy did gr8 ----wonderful to get finals in your first show. A lot of the hissing is natural for a first show. The "helpers", often kids, don't always do a thorough job of wiping out the cages after each cat, so likely she smelled the scent of previous cat(s). And some of the male cats will spray when they get in them. So if you see anything in the cage that looks like urine, mention it to the clerk that it hasn't been cleaned well enough. It sounded like she was pretty relaxed if she was able to doze in her bench cage. That's good. Two-day shows are pretty exhausting anyway, especially for a first time. Well done! and look forward to photos.
