I cannot think of a better way to wrap up a year of cat grooming than by preparing a sweet, beautiful longhair Exotic van for his first cat show. Cotn Hill Charleston’s King Cameron, otherwise known as Cam, traveled from Charleston to Charlotte with his mom, Shirley, stopping by the NCGIA for a show groom on the way.
I had never met Cam before. He was a delight to groom, just as any longhair Exotic should be. Before Shirley came back to pick him up, I was tempted to hide him, telling his mother that he had accidentally jumped out the window and run away. After all, who couldn’t use an extra black and white van?
An hour and a half after he had been dropped off for grooming, Shirley and Cam drove away, headed north to Charlotte for an early morning Saturday show. I wished them good luck as they sped away. And luck they did have! Cam made all 6 finals that Saturday, even securing a 3rd Best Cat in premiership and 10th Best Cat in premiership, right up there with the Grands. As an Open this was quite a feat!
Shirley and Cam headed back home to Charleston with the new Premiership title as well as more than half the points needed for a Grand title. Not bad for a days work!
Thank you, Shirley, for allowing me the pleasure of working with this magnificent boy! We hope to see you both very soon. Happy New Year!
