Last weekend, Jacoby and I went with Meg, Cousin Taz, Cousin Louis-Fire and little Malaika Jamaica to a CFF cat show in Worcester, MA. Jake just went as the celebrity Abyssinian and show ambassador cat and wasn’t even entered in the show…
…but he managed to bring home a rosette anyway!
This show had a “Spectator’s Choice” competition where people who came to the show could vote for their favourite cat.
Each cat had a number (like Lura/Pickles, number 42, above) and people wrote that down and put it in the ballot box. Jake didn’t even have a number – people just wrote his name if they wanted to vote for him!
Jake worked hard for his ribbon, though. He spent a lot of time with the spectators.
He also went through a few costume changes.
But it was all worth it at the end of the day. The voting wasn’t even one of those hanging-chad deals – Jake won by a landslide!
