I began showing in 2005, my first show was a TICA show in Green Cove Springs, Florida. It only took one show and I was hooked. I still show to this day because I believe it is important to breed “to standard” and to have my cats judged and ranked by the ultimate professionals of CFA, TICA, and LCWW.
Showing is hard on a cat whether they like it or not. Their days are very long; beginning with several hours of grooming the day before then off to the show to be handled by all kinds of strangers the whole weekend. Therefore, I am grateful for each show cat I have that they let me take them to the show hall so I can have fun.
My first show cat was born and raised here at Sunny Shores; SunnyShores Montanna’s Big Son aka Fatty. He was 6 months old and was at that first TICA show in 2005 and got 2 final ribbons.
Fatty crossed over the Rainbow Bridge the summer of 2023
