October 27th was a really long and hard day for aka Akatsu.
Japan Grand Cat Fancies is a new TICA Club raised at Hiroshima.
To attend their 1st and 2nd show he and Yasuyuki left the house before the sunrise.
They took an hour ride by plane next bus from Hiroshima airport and reached the show hall at 10:00 in the morning.
This was the first time for Akatus to use the plane, he was kept in cargo are as in Japan animals are not allowed to be in the cabin.
I entered Hiroshima by Shinkan-sen (bullet train) so we saw each other at the show hall.
Was glad to know that Akatus was OK.
Akatsu very relaxed at his grooming space.
Just as same as n our house.
This time each ring had rosettes.
Their were quite number of cats and their owner to attend TICA Show.
Must be a good souvenir to bring rosettes back.
Good for the new attendants.
Flower stands from Asia Region and some clubs.
There were some shops that I did not seen in Tokyo area.
I was attracted to the "Lunch Box (Koraku-bento)" for cats. Cat nip is inside each items.
And also bought a bed for our kittens whom are to debut in Nov.
Was I there to attend the show or to shop? LOL
Back to Akatus.
He was enjoining the show.
Performed very well at Ms. Yokoyama's ring.
Also got the final from Ms. Oizumi.
At the AM Show, he won all the finals.
Also got beautiful satin kicker and the blanket.
At Ms. Tasaki's ring.
He was really enjoying and played a lot.
SHowing his long body.
We did shampoo him on Fri. but it looks like...
Doing "Catch and release" at Ms. Hamano's ring!
Reminded me of his mother Cindy. LOL
But was not the end of the day.
As we could not reserve the flight to go back to Tokyo, he and I took Shinkan-sen, a 4.5 hours ride.
He drank a lot of water.
Sure it was a long and tough day for him.
He looked like he had confidence in himself.
He is now nearly 8kg but has a character of a little kid.
Having a little trip with him was a time to know him more better.
Had a enough time to know how he is heavy and never should hand carry him.
Yes, I learned without a cart I can not travel with this lovely boy!!! LOL
Congrats and thank you to all the members of JGCF.
Many thanks to the people supported this show.
Also thank you to the 4 judges who judged more than 70 cats/kittens twice a day.
We also enjoyed this show very much.
