TICA Annual

I will be attending the TICA Annual Cat show on September 5 and 6. This show is being held in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center. They are planning a pre show party Friday evening. I'm planning on attending. This will give me the opportunity to get the *lay of the land* Those that attend Friday night can set up their benching space. That will certainly remove a lot of worries and stress, having accomplished the set-up a day ahead of the show. And I'll know exactly where to go, no worries about getting lost. Not all computer maps are 100% reliable.

I am taking a Siberian kitten He s a 4 month old Brown Classic Tabby Male Siberian. I have named him *Nachalnik* which is Russian for *boss*

I have just returned from a CFA cat show. The club is Tropical cats and they have merged with another club during these trying economical times. Anyway I decided for whatever reason to enter one of my white Siberian Cats Kravchenko Sosoolichka of Taiga owned by myself and Eric V. Gill from the Taiga pet nursery.Sosoolichka was the ACFA Best of Breed Siberian in the show year of 2003-2004. Sosoolichka became a one show TICA Champion in 2005.4 years later I took him back into the show hall on Saturday August 15 2009. It is here that he earned his CFA champion title. The old boy still has it.His reward? He is with his favorite girlfriend Kravchenko Oxsana :)

Siberian Kittens

Shipping siberian kittens

Early this morning( before the crack of dawn) I sent a kitten out on the plane whose ultimate destination is Lima Peru. It is a two stage journey for her. Today she went to La Guardia where her *new Mommy* got her. Tomorrow she flies out of JFK under the seat in the passenger compartment.

Tomorrow for me means being back at the airport by 5 AM. These next two Siberian Kittens are going to a family where this is the family's *second* Siberian Cat!

Then one more leg back to the airport on Friday. Two girls are leaving. One is going to BMI because the owner lives in MD. The other is being flown to DCA (reagon International) They work at the Pentagon.

Preparing each kitten for departure can be very time consuming. Getting each cat bathed so that they are squeaky clean, assembling the carriers, packing all of the Siberian kitten supplies, and doing the paperwork (always paperwork!) and then the trek to the DAB airport.
