I promise this time to come back with some good pictures to share!<br><br>
Yes, I am actually traveling to a cat show. It will be my first time doing more than commuting... thankfully the hotel room is CHEAP <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:, but DH is in charge of the kiddos while I'm gone. Which will be interesting, as I've never been away from them overnight!<br><br>
DH is a really good sport, and we're calling this weekend my "Birthday Present" I get to be just Christy for the weekend, not mommy, not a SAHM or a wife. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
So, please send <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v456/phatchristy/Kitty%20Pics/?action=view&current=DSCN3647.jpg" target="_blank">Miss Heaven</a> some best cat and best premier vibes so she gets some points (it's a really small show, so she's going to need to make a lot of finals to get decent points).

You know, I try to post a dramaless post...something positive which is pretty rare these days in the pets forum.<br><br>
Nobody's sick/dying/having problems with inappropriate urination/biting or scratching/fighting/or getting rehomed...<br><br>
(darn it I've got cats who are lovable, pretty problem free and get along)<br><br>
..what I have I learned...<br><br>
yes...<br><br>
NOBODY cares! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
My light, airy, positive posts just don't draw a crowd...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">.

How fun!<br>
Does Miss Heaven stay in the hotel room too?<br>
I am picturing you guys in the hotel room, having a girl's night, watching chick flicks, you doing her hair and nails, etc.<br>
I am weird, I know.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

You know, it's not to far away from your description there....<br><br>
Actually, these days when Heaven gets her prep work for the show (weekly baths, hot oil tretments, daily facial washing) I just call it "giving her a spa treatment." Sounds a little nicer than saying "cat bath" and is really closer to reality.<br><br>
She will stay in the hotel with me, I will have a pop up crate that I use for her to sleep/lounge in. Sometimes you can let them out in the room, but usually I didn't when I stayed with a cat before. Because they do use chemicals to clean/treat their rooms, and often there are "under the beds" which cats just absolutely have to check out!<br><br>
I had a friend who went to a show with her cat, and let her cat out....there was an under the bed, the cat got under, but even worse, they had a whole in the drywall under there...the cat crawled in the wall.<br><br>
They did manage to eventualy coax her out...but I can't imagine....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

Back from show, pretty tired!<br><br>
The kids did just fine without me. LOL. Of course...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">. Though, DH took them out everywhere and spent some $$$ doing stuff I wouldn't have. I guess that's how he survived the weekend!<br><br>
Well, Heaven had a good show, she made 5 out of 6 finals which included her first BEST cat in show award from one of the judges.<br><br>
She did look good! I'm going to have to upload some pictures later...I'm tired and had some other drama over the weekend (stayed in a toxic hotel room...that's another story entirely).<br><br>
More later when I get stuff uploaded.
