What Cat shows did you go to? TICA or CFA?

They are a fun and fun-loving breed with a relaxed and social attitude rarely associated with cats. Delightfully silly in both appearance and antics, Devons are interested in everything and everyone around them. Their playful nature means Devons easily learn tricks and are always up for a game of hide-and-seek, tag, or fetch. This unique breed possesses intensely loyal, human-loving, dog-like qualities. A person must be prepared to be owned by a Devon. A Devon will eat with you, sleep with you, and perch cozily on your shoulder while you are on the computer or reading. They will follow you around the house, sit at your feet, or jump on your lap the minute you sit down."

So, I guess they remind me a bit of Dobermans, LOL! They are social and outgoing, clingy, wanting to be with you. Less aloof than many cats. And, of course, they are utterly adorable - they are supposed to be "elfin" in appearance. We'd look at some other breeds, and I also really liked Siberians, but ultimately decided I couldn't handle that level of grooming, and the personality wasn't exactly what I was looking for (although maybe down the road, who knows).

It was really fun to go to cat shows and actually meet breeds, although some breeds are far more rare than others and harder to find at shows. But the cat shows were really fun, and the owners/handlers (typically the same person) were really open and easy to talk to, and eager to tell you about their breed. Super fun!
I'm an ambassador at CFA shows as is Bentley's Birman, Nermal. Yes, I really bought my Doberman a cat! Nermal is retired from Showing now and goes to shows to be held, petted and loved on. But I'm one of the people that talk to those coming to shows, point them to the breed they want to see if they or their kids want to pet, hold a for REAL Grand Champion Show cat, they can with Nermal (Bentley's cat)

Denise, never thought I'd be posting on a cat thread, but our Dobe, Eva, is now fascinated with all cats, after her first kitty encounter, posted in this thread:

https://www.dobermantalk.com/doberma...encounter.html

Every day on our walks, Eva looks for Spidy, the little playful kitty and has frequent play sessions with her. Eva also has been making friends with many of the "cat lady's" 5-cats across the street! Everyone suggested we get Eva her own kitten, but it's a bit late in her life for that!

Oh yeah, after Spock's not-so-good following encounter with Spidy, he now walks a little faster past the kitty's yard on our walks!....

Denise - there were hardly any shows local to us when we were going, but we were able to meet our breeder at an AFCA show that she was attending. She then later came down to attend a really large CFA show later that year, but we didn't go to the show (I'd like to go this year if shows resume, but I'm not sure if they will). That CFA show is the biggest one that happens locally. Cat shows are few and far between around here!

I meant to post this pretty picture of Tilly the other day and forgot:

They CAN'T be a year old already. No way!!

I was just thinking of them yesterday—I was wandering around the net and saw a picture of a rex type cat and wondered why we didn't have any recent pictures from you.

And here they are!

Happy Birthday, Kids!!
