Hey everyone as you can see we got our lovely Costigan CMB shirts in the mail; and they look better in person. We are loving them, don't mind us just taking selfies in them.
The Cat Show is getting closer and closer and we are just finshing up our final touches on our show curtains, and our Costigan CMB sign we will have on top of our show cage.
If you won't be able to be there in person at the Calgary Cat Show, don't were about it. We will be going LIVE at the Calgary Cat Show and we will be showing you whats going on and how it is going. We will be going live from our FaceBook page on the 14 of April. We are not to sure what time we will be going live. But if you happen to be chilling just checking on your facebook and you see we are going live feel free to give us a look see.
We are going to keep our Blog short for today and so far that is all our updates.
Oh boy, it's been such a busy week I don't know where to start. This week is all about upgrading.
So to start it off we ordered the very first Costigan Chief Mountain Bengal's shirts! My husband, my son and myself will be wearing these at the Calgary Cat Show. They should be coming in the mail any day now, I'm excited to see them in person!
And we have upgraded somethings for our Cattery. We have upgraded our water system for our Bengal's; and they are loving the new water system we have for them now. And it's much healthier for them.
This water fountain is awesome for cats and for dogs. It has a filter that takes away any dirt that gets into they're water through out the day. And it recycles water, making the water cleaner to drink from.
If you would like to check it out I posted a link to it right here, its on sale right now at PetSmart. https://www.amazon.ca/PetSafe-Drinkwell-Platinum-Fountain-Litres/dp/B00MPE5OYG/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1522252889&sr=8-8&keywords=pet+water+fountains
And another upgrade we got for our Cattery. We got in contact with the Robot team and have made a very little deal with them.
We will be upgrading our kitten care package. We will have our normal kitten care package free. But we are adding a large kitten care package and ex-large kitten care package.
In our ex-large kitten care package it will come with one of these awesome self-cleaning litter boxes.
As most of you can tell we picked up our new girl Calypso. We had to travel 3 hours to get to the airport.
Also we where able to help a friend by bringing her to try out for a movie casting. So hopefully she got in.
And that is our week in a nut shell lol.
With vaccinating Bengal's I am super picky with what vet we go to. It's very important that the vet know's what they are doing with Bengal's. Bengal's can be more sensitive to vaccinations then normal cats.
That's why before we got into Bengal's I did my research. And we found the best vet for Bengal's in my area. With the vet we are going to now, we are very satisfied with.
So last week Ferros got his year vaccinations; and the vet could not believe how sweet he was. He was great he did not struggle or even flinch.
I really feel Ferros is going to do really good at the Calgary Cat Show. His gentle nature is ideal for shows.
In cat shows your cat's can't freak out on the judges, they can't bite, or scratch or they will be disqualified from the show. It super important to make sure your cat has a good temperament for showing.
It's Vixey we are trying to work with right now to make sure she will be ready for the show. Vixey is a little more unsure. But we will keep working with her.
For those of you who follow our FaceBook Page has seen we have finished our cage, and it turned out really nice.
I will post some photo's of our cage on here. But it is really cool it turns different color's all the time.
Now that we have the show cage taken care of we are now moving onto Show Cage Curtains.
We are working right now on making our show curtains I am attempting to make them myself, haha we will see how that goes.
I posted a video of the design of show curtains I will be attempting to make.
And that is all for this week's blog :)
So last week has been a pretty busy week. We got our cat cage in the mail. And before it goes in for a paint job we needed to sand it. And let me tell you it is not easy to sand a cage lol.
Me and my husband took turns sanding our cat cage; we had to be very care full not to rub off any of the black paint well we sand it.
Then we got in the mail the special paint dust. So we took the cage and the special paint dust to the professional we highered to paint our cage.
The professional we higher told us it turned out super nice. He sent us a photo of it. And it looks great we can't wait to see it in person! When we get it we will take more photos of it to show you all more.
And we registered Ferros and Vixey in the Cat Show; so its official. There is going to be a lot of changes happening with in our breeding program but all very exciting changes!
Our Unique Idea
In Cat shows as I was researching they use to have these old school cat cages. Where you could dress up your cats cage to present your cat nicely. Now the show cat cages are much different then before. I posted a photo for you all to see the changes from before to now.
I don't know about you, but I guess I just like the old school look better then the new.
However I like to put my own swing on things. So that is were we came up with an old school new look.
So I did a few phone calls around seeing if our unique idea would even be allowed in the Calgary Cat Show. We were happy to discover what we had in mind would not be a problem. So here is half of our unique idea.
I know what you might be thinking what is the big deal. But trust me when I say this will be an eye catcher once it's done. And we will be the olny breeder's with this type of cat cage.
We bought Riddler ColorShift Pearl it's a new type of car paint and it looks so stunning on cars so we are very excited to see how it will look on our cat cage. We found a professional to spray it onto our cage for us.
And if we where going to go out of our way to paint a cage so nicely we wanted a pretty nice cage. As we did our homework about show cages we came arcoss the Dogit Two Door Wire Home Crates with Divider. This really makes an awsome show cage, And there are so many size to pick from we felt like we could not go wrong with it.
And there you go that is half of our unique idea.
Preparations For Our First Time Cat Showing!
Coming up here on April 14 to 15, 2018 we will be heading over to the Calgary Alberta Cat Show. Calgary is about a three hour drive for us. I can't help to feel super excited. As we are preparing for this Cat Show adventure; There is a lot more to prepare for then I realized.
I really like to do things outside the box or presenting things in a very unique way; I think of it as giving more colour to things. We have a unique idea of how we are going to present our cat's at the Calgary Cat Show. We will be bloging and showing you sneak peeks.
Right now as excited as we are as much as I want to show you our sneak peek; I can not because we are still waiting for what we have ordered to come in so we can create our unique idea into reality.
The two cats we are planning on showing in the Cat Show is our Sire, Ferros and our new Queen from Russia, Vixey.
