Frankfurt exhibition, the show down

Hello everyone,

The weekend is over and so is the show ;-). After we arrived on Friday, we went to the show on Saturday. We were allowed to come somewhere between 9 and 9.30, which extremely late for “us showpeople”

It turned out there were 8 poly coons. Number 9 did not show up.

The show was a good one, The judges looked good at them and were quiet elaborate in there comments, which I think is a good thing. Unfortunately a number of judges mentioned that if someone shows poly coons, they should look like maine coons and also be prepared as Maine Coons. One lucky thing in this matter is that we bathed our coons extensively as you all read in the previous mail 😉 so they were not talking about us.

One other request was to register as many as possible poly coons in TICA and besides that there should also be as many as possible poly coons on shows. Well and as we all know, that could improve a bit. We go to a lot of shows all over Europe, maybe we can get some accomplices. The number of poly coons is mostly very limited, besides ours.

Well and the finally the results.

Bathing Time for our Maine Coons

Hello everyone,

Today was the day to give our Maine Coons a sponge bath. This weekend Layla, Baba and Red have a show. This time it is not that far as we only have to drive to Hellevoetsluis, which is about 140 km.

But, as already said, when you go to show you have to give the cats a bath and the three of them really like that ;-).

First in row was Baba, second was Red and finally Layla.

They all got the usual treatment and that means 5 different “shampoos” to get them as clean as possible. First you degrease the cat without water, then you rinse the cat and degrease him with water. Then you get the woolite and after that a lot of water. When that is done we get a conditioner and flush that out again and finally you take a special shampoo which differs per cat (color). And last but certainly not least you put the cat under the shower until all soap is gone and that takes 10-15 minutes. After that you only need a lot of towels and a livingroom heated up to 23C(elcius).

At the moment the three of them are very relaxed and are sleeping somewhere.
