Showing a cat is a lot of fun (or should be) if the cat is outgoing to strangers, confident in its personality, laid back and unflappable, the cat should do well. Though some cats are overwhelmed by the noise and hustle and bustle and crowds at shows and would just rather be somewhere else. So it really depends a lot on the cat's personality.
Here's some info on HHP (household pet) class. Usually it's a cat with lots of animation beautiful expression, gorgeous coat and condition that will go home with ribbons.
Bathe the cat the day before....if the coat is greasy, a little
"Dawn" dishing washing detergent as a first shampoo will remove that, then follow by a pet shampoo. Ideally, you should bathe the cat a week or so before the show to see how the coat will look. Dry the coat with hair dryer as much as possible combing and fluffing it out with a steel or chrome Greyhound type of comb. Don't forget to do the under parts and between the back legs and bloomers. Before each judging backcomb
the coat against the lie, and then very barely comb it with the lie. You want the coat to stand out. If you have some 'finishing spray' spay it on lightly.
of cats being judged, and mimic the handling and movement the judgement make. If you have a dog crate you can use this as a substitute "judging cage". Mimic how the judge takes the cat out of the cage (always back end facing the judge), hold it up in the air and then place it on the table and mimic how the judge touches the cat, looks into its eyes, feels the head, body, fluffs the coat. And get out a 'teaser toy' and see if you can get the cat to play a bit on the table. Put the cat back in the cage front first. Use the teaser toy again on the cage, and then praise the cat and give her treats. If you have a tape/DVD of crowd noises, you could play that. Give your cat 'practice judgings' a few times a day, and only give it treats after
the judging, not at any other times during the day. Always hold your catin a 'football' hold lying on one arm with a couple of fingers up on her chest so that you have good control, and hold the back legs with other hand....you certainly won't want the cat to jump or wriggle away while you're going from your bench to the judging cages. If you don't carry your cat that way now, practice it. You will have familiarized your cat with how it will be handled in the judging ring (so it isn't confused this person is a vet!), and when it gets to the show the judging won't be a surprise. She's a beautiful cat with a wonderful expression and I think you should do very
Good luck! and let us know how you do.
