Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cat show…
Sherry emailed me last night to point out that this past weekend, at the CFA National Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, an Abyssinian was named Third Best Cat in Show!
GP Hitails Banjo Mooner, a blue neutered Aby, came in as 2nd runner up behind a tortie-and-white Persian spay and a red tabby American Shorthair male out of 500 cats! 18 Abyssinians were entered; 9 Kittens, 6 Championship and 3 Premiership.
What’s funny is, we’ve met Banjo’s family recently: You may recall my Halloween post about Racy Mooner. Turns out, the Hitails Abys are quite the characters. Not only is Racy a waterbug, but her mother, Zehnder’s Twyla Mooner of Hitails, is a Feline Agility star! She’s also a CFA Regional Winner: Look at this wonderful photo from the CFA Southern Region 2011 Awards page:
Such a talented – and gorgeous – family!
