My cats are still in sleeping strike because of the bad weather. They lay around and from time to time honor me with a mouse, just to show that they are still alive.

So I went with a friend to an International cat show near Brussels, to have a look if there are more active cats ! I only discovered lazy beauties !

These once were waiting for the jury

I managed to wake up this beauty

Despite my whistling (I was proud that I still could whistle) the cats were not impressed and continued to sleep or turn their back towards me.

They all were so cool and not stressed at all. What a difference with humans ! Some of them slept in their litter boxes, probably that way they felt home.

And then the show began and the beauties very judged. When I saw this one, I thought my Rosie is a mini cat besides him !

This one too was huge and so friendly, nothing disturbed him

Great patterns !

The little one made me think of my blogfriend Summer !

He or she looked very grumpy ! Made me think of Mr. G. today

and then came this very special cat with his American owner a young woman.  He was amazing, he sat on the chair and was so big that he really needed the whole chair. I don't know what breed he is, but his fur looked like the fur of a sheep !

He was soooo cute ! He also got the first price !

Of course in my heart the first price went to

these nameless breeds, they only cost money, scratch carpets, bring mousies home, wake you up at 6 for breakfast and jump on your belly soaking wet. So far none of them has earned some money !

You want to hear something crazy? The judges in these photos have actually judged ME, all the way out on the West Coast of the U.S.! I totally recognized them.

Wow, reading Summer's comments made me realize how small the cat show world is.

All your kitties deserve first place.

I think someone slipped a small tiger in among the cats, did no one notice? The black and white cat is a beauty as is the cat that looks like Shibella. Of course my vote would go to your four cats.
Good cat judges travel the world, they have to or they would get to know the cats and their owners. Last cat show I went too had two judges from France. Cat judging is a dog eat dog world and fur will fly if some owners are too disappointed.

All of you cats should get medals, mouses and treats for sitting in a cage getting stared at.

So many wonderful kitties at the show, but it's always fun to come home to your own.
