“Ideals are like stars: you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the ocean desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny.” – Carl Schurz

Sam is at His First Show—Updated

Yesterday, Sam’s breeder came and picked him up to take him to his first cat show in Colorado Springs this weekend. It was really hard to let the little critter go. We’ve become very attached to him over the past couple of weeks.

He’ll get a bath and all groomed up, and he should be showing today and tomorrow. We hope to get word on his experience tonight. We’ve even thought about driving down tomorrow, but that is 4 hours of driving time down and back to see cats in cages…don’t know.

Sam was great in the motorhome last week on a long trip to New Mexico and back. And, he has adapted to life with 8 big dogs quite well. He pretty much rules the house now.

He is up to about 6-1/2 pounds at 19 weeks old…he’s going to be a big boy.

Update! Sam’s breeders, Trudie and Dennis Allen of TruTails Maine Coon Cats, sent us an email with their comments on Sam’s first show and some photos. Click on “comments” below to see them. (For some reason the “more” link is not working on this article).
