Meet The Breeds In NYC - And Summer!

Hello, and Happy Thursday Purrsday! I've got something that will make you purr today for sure. A couple of weeks ago Mommy and Will attended the Meet The Breeds event here in NYC sponsored by The Westminster Kennel Club. Now, you're probably wondering why they would attend a dog show since they don't have dogs. I don't want to keep you in suspense any longer so let me tell you; our great pal, Summer from Sparklecat.com was there representing the Somali breed! When we heard she and her human would be in town, we made sure our mom did not miss them!

The traffic going to the show was great and they got there in no time! (It was a miracle, especially on a rainy day.) But once they got to Manhattan it took over an hour to find a parking garage that wasn't full. (That's how popular this show was.) They finally found one (that ended up only costing $17 - another miracle!) and then jumped in a cab to the show. 

The cats were all the way in the back! If you ask me, they should have been in the front, but that's just my opinion. When they found Summer's table there was a crowd around it, so they walked around a bit and looked at some other cats. So here's where I'll give you Mommy's report on the show.

And this is a baby Devon Rex. And that's it! That's all she got from the show! Mommy said that it was SO crowded that it was hard to get near the tables to see the cats and dogs. Eventually, they did get to pet a few, though. 

Mommy and Will had to go back to Summer's table three times before she was free. She was one popular cat, that's for sure! Here are some photos of Summer.

Summer was very good at sitting so people could see her.

This is Summer's enclosure that we see in her posts about her shows.

Lots of children wanted to pet her! 


Summer's human got Mommy a lanyard just in case she needed it for the end of the show to help her pack up. It's a good thing no one asked her questions about Somalis because she wouldn't be able to answer them! MOL

After the show they all hopped in an Uber (because no taxis were coming by) to the parking garage. Will went home and Mommy drove Summer and her human to their hotel in New Jersey (and she didn't get lost like she usually does in New Jersey, thank goodness!) 

Summer had a little snack at the hotel...

...while the humans went to eat people food. 

Mommy had a great day spending time with Summer and her human, and she loved seeing Summer in action. She's definitely a professional!

Mommy gets an "F" for her show coverage, but she gets an "A" for telling us all about our friend. We hope you enjoyed reading it.

  8. That was a great recap of having fun with Summer and her human! Your photos came out fantastic! Would LOVE to meet Summer! Thankfully I have met Summer's human many, many times (but it would be good to see her again although I doubt that I will this year!) Summer is gorgeous! catchatwithcarenandcody

  12. Summer was the best looking cat there I'm sure. Too bad you didn't stop by here on your way to Secaucas.

  14. It's okay ... I know how distracting Summer can be. "OH MY GOODNESS, IT'S SUMMER!!!! Conference?! What Conference?" Add some squealing and a huge smile on your face and you get the proper magnitude of the "problem." ;)

  16. How absolutely wonderful that your Mom got to meet summer. Our #1 is very envious!

    That baby Devon Rex reminded us of Daisy, one of our very first blogging friends who sadly stopped blogging a few years back.

    Purrs,
