Indefinite Detention

Yesterday’s combo Sunday brunch / Saintly City Cat Club Show adventures were a great success! I will never let this oddball annual tradition die. Yes, I am conflicted about the whole thing, as I disagree with the practice of breeding when there are already too many non-pedigreed felines in need of homes. But my desire to see the unusual looking cats is too strong. Parker and I fell in love with a gorgeous Sphynx named Lil’ Dipper. And this total dudecat, whose actual name I didn’t catch, but I’ve dubbed The Supreme Overlord. I would happily do his bidding if he’d just let me hug him. The rest of my photos are here and Ericka’s fine photos are over here. Really though, the event is just as much about the people as the cats. One highlight? Talking to a showcat owner who seemed sincerely shocked - and almost appalled - upon discovering we only have two cats. “What, two cats? Really, just two?” And “well, you’re getting more cats, aren’t you?” Apparently she is down to just five cats and felt this was an unacceptably low number.

More guilty pleasures:

Sports in general are not my thing but I’ll happily benefit from yesterday’s Vikings loss. Punch is offering conciliatory free pizza tonight. Hopefully the lines won’t be *too* crazy, full of sadsack football fans, after our usual Monday afternoon swimming.

    Thank you thank you for the great pictures. L’il Dipper really looks like he has a lot of personality (purrsonality ;).

    I am one of the cat-impoverished as well, with “only two”. Condo rules. Which I am tempted to break.

    And next year we should be more properly attired, in crazy cat lady gear.

    When I was a kid my mom showed cats and I would go with her to “work” as a ring steward (wiping down the cages between rounds). I’ve met sooooo many crazy cat people! It’s definitely an interesting world.
