Here kitty kitty…

I love cats!! I have almost always had a cat for a pet from the time of being a kid to now. I cannot imagine my house not having a cat.  So when a friend of mine asked me if I was going to the cat show here in town last weekend, I was like “Duh, yes!”  I have never been to a cat show just have read about them and seen them on TV but to go to one, well needless to say I will never watch one on TV again.  Oh my goodness, there are some really cute cats when you see them in person.  I have never had a cat with papers just ones that I got from friends or local shelters.  Only my grandma growing up had Siamese cats that were with papers. (Do not me started how bad she spoiled those cats growing up!)

Look what is in town!

Since the hubby was away all last week, he had a few things he need to catch up on at work so the girls and I headed down to the local sport hall where they were hosting it with a friend and her girls since her hubby just left for a few weeks for his job. Do you think 2 – 6 year old’s, 1 – 7 year old and 1 – 8 year old girl had fun?  After being in the hall for 2 minutes we lost all 4 of them as we could not keep up with them because they were having so much fun checking out all the cats.

Look at the cats.

Look at all the cats.

I love this cat!  What a life.

I cannot believe how that cat just sat there and did not move.

Yes, some of these people love their cats.

The sports hall looks just a bit different compared to coming here for volleyball games.

I cannot decided if this is cute or ugly?  For some crazy reason, GREMIN comes to mind.

I cannot decided if this is cute or ugly too? For some crazy reason, GERMLIN comes to mind.

Yes I am sucker for getting something for my kids at events like this but today I had no problem with it!  A local cat rescue group was doing a fundraiser so I let each of the girls pick a string to see what prize they won.  We all walked home with stuffed animals!

I would have to say that was one of the funnest 2.5 hours I have had in a long time.  I learned that Polish people have a love for Maine Coon cats(I think 50% of the cats there were), like I do(mine is one just with no papers) and that Siamese cats are not so popular as there was not even one there.  

I have talking to my husband about getting a job here since it looks like we will be staying here for a few more years(yes, this place is growing on us), I might have to look into Siamese cat breeding!  It will prepare me for when I become that crazy old cat woman and I have 20+ cats in the house.

Oh, I know you are wondering if I was singing this song…

soft kitty

Yes, I was and it was driving me crazy!!  But we love this song in our family, we were teaching our friends who came with us the song too while we were there.

Are you cat or dog lover? I love my cat!!!

    Oh Kelley,
    I so want to hang out with you. We are going to Germany rather then Poland, but I am fascinated in Poland. We are also retired military, and currently DOD living in Korea on our way to Germany. I have a sphynx cat, and so far I have not been able to locate any in Korea. I would like to add another fur less baby to my family. I will now add cat shows to my bucket list for Poland. I love your blog, and hope I get the chance to have coffee or tea with you some day. We should be in Hohenfels by Jan.

    • I would love to visit Korea!! That was always on the top of dream sheet when we were in the AF. I am glad you are enjoying my blog. If you have any questions about living in Europe let me know and if you do make it to Poland let me know I would love to have a cup with you!!!
